Hey Suzanne! Thanks for the reply, and the picture really gave me a giggle. My son-in-law owns every state-of-the-art piece of exercise equipment out there today, and most of it gets used pretty much the same as the one in the picture! Someone is selling one on EBay for $65, but there's a local (massachusetts) online auction site that has one where the bidding started at $5 on Saturday, and there have been NO bids, so it's pretty likely that by the time the auction is ending this Saturday, I could probably get it for the $5. Not a great loss if it ends up not being something I'd want to use, but I just thought if anybody had any experience using them, it might help to know their opinion. My guess is that these models just got left in the dust of the new, super-duper deluxe digital (and cook your food, walk the dog) models. Basic would be just fine for me, yanno?
Anyway, thanks...I appreciate the info and giggled my head off at the pic!
