This machine came out last year to great reviews…I've often wondered if Schwinn paid for them.
Strengths: The Schwinn name.
Weakness: Quality and reliability.
The Schwinn 430 and 431 are two ellipticals produced on a very similar platform. It's a front drive machine with a pretty good motion, but it has two overwhelming issues that act as negatives in my book: It's made by Schwinn and the quality is substandard compared to its competition. With Nautilus, Schwinn's owner, struggling with financial difficulities I would look to other companies that don't have such a burden to bare. You don't want to face a situation where product support becomes an issue.
