I have enough reward points to get one. I live in a cottage w/ no room for a "real" treadmill. Appreciate any feedback.

Thanks

I loved my gazelle! It broke recently (from overuse I think) but I'm getting it fixed. The only complaint that I have is that it is squeaky. But just turn the music or TV up, and problem solved. (well, not for my neighbors, but... oh well.)

I had the "freestyle" not the "edge" and had bought it from a yardsale. Used it almost every day for months, and a cord broke. I hope that you don't have issues with that!

Really looking forward to getting it back, love that thing.

It's a home cardio exercise machine. It's kind of like a cheap elliptical. Here's one on Amazon:

If it squeaks, take all the bolts off and oil them with a little wd-40. Also take the bar in the front apart and oil under where the other bars slip over it (does this make sense?). That should help. Also if you have an old one with plastic washers, replace them with metal ones that won't wear down. Hubby did this with his old one and it was quiet after that.
