3D Printed J-cup padding

The v2 titan j-cups are designed much better than the v1 all around, except the pads are half the thickness, which wore down to the bolts in about a year. I had a friend print up some thicker replacements for me.

I need an exercise bike. Which one?

I want 2 arm levers so I can work my back and chest at the same time. It needs a rounded, padded seat. Most the seats are flat on top and 90 degree drop off at the edge, which is not comfortable. I'm hoping for a $150 price. I wish I could get magnetic resistance. Those are quiet. All I...

What is this piece, maybe old hammer strength/nautilus? I initially thought a prone leg curl but I don’t think the roller pad is part of it. The roller pad is off to one side. I have messaged the seller, waiting to hear back.
