If you want a Sole elliptical, buy a real one.
Fuel Fitness is the low-end creation of Sole Fitness for the Dick's Sporting Goods chain. Sole Fitness makes good products in the price points at which they have traditionally sold ($1000 to $2000). They should stay there. The Fuel line is a mistake that happens when, just like an employee, they didn't know when to say no to the boss.
