Default Exercise machines

Hey everybody!

Ok, so I have an exercise question. I would love, love to get a treadmill. However, I live on the second floor of an apartment building with a very noice-conscious neighbor below. So, my options are either an exercise bike or one of those ellipticals. I don't think the exercise bikes are very loud but does anyone know how noisy the ellipticals are? I tried them a few times when I had a gym membership (once upon a time) but I don't remember the noise level.

Any advice?

Cheers!
Annie

My elliptical is so quiet I love it! When I first got it, we had a big joke going here that my husband didnt like it because he couldnt tell when I was working out. My previous stationary bike was so loud that it fibrated the floors terribly, and the room downstairs the lightbulb blew out from the vibrations LOL.

The key is to get one with the magnetic resistance so it'll be silent.
