Replacing treadmill belt by K. C.
Hi, I have a Weslo Cadence 850 treadmill and the walking/running belt is about to break. I was wondering if I could replace the belt myself (if so, where to buy the replacement belt?) or do I have to get someone from the treadmill repair service to replace it? Thanks in advance! KC

Reebok TR3 treadmill by steve marchant
being searching for a reasonable treadmill under£1000 (UK), and am focusing on the Reebok TR3 Powerrun machine - not least because of its large track area, eg. 20inches by 5 feet in their TR3 Powerrun machine. But I can't find an independent review of it. Treadmilldoctor only reviews the Reebok...

No more than 2lb a week? by Vincent D'Amato

Hi. I want to buy a recumbent exercise bike for my home. I want something comparable to the Star-Trac bikes at my gym. I do not want anything with a fan blade on it, as I prefer the electromagnetic resistance mechanism of the electric bikes. I am willing to pay as much as I would for a...
