    Is this elliptical good?

    I am thinking of getting Body Flex Kent 2, which is a 2-in-1 dual trainer (cross trainer + bike).

    Flywheel: 10kg / 22lb

    Item dimensions: 122 x 60 x 153 cm / 48 x 23 x 60 inches

    Weight: 30kg / 66lb

    I want to do low-to-mid intensity steady state cardio for 30 mins 5 times per week. Won't be used professionally, just need it be sturdy and not completely uncomfortable.

    Do you think that it's decent for its price - $300? Thanks in advance for your feedback!

    I'd look for reviews. If Amazon sells it there should be plenty.
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    I'm sure it will do the job, but no, it's not any good. See if you can find a used Octane. You should be able to find one in that price range and it will both outperform and outlast the Body Flex.

    In my experience when a single piece of equipment tries to do two totally different movements/functions it doesn't end up doing either of them worth a crap.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Cleveland33 again.

    Thanks all. The problem is, within this price range, it's the elliptical with the heaviest flywheel. And, as a bonus, it can be used as a bike. Which is why I am considering it.
