elliptical trainers

bilgerat

Hi I,m new here but would like an opinion or two. I,m in the market for an elliptical trainer. The two I'm down to are the Nordictrack 1055 and the Smooth CE 3.2. I like the fact that I can buy the Nordic track at my local sears, and it's a few hundred bucks less than the Smooth, but have heard that it may not be the quality machine its advertised as. I've read the Smooth machine is a quality machine but you have to buy it over the internet, and I can't find what the stride length is on the Smooth. Does anybody know any pros or cons about these machines.
