Advantages

Goal!

The electronic console of the BRD2000 is simple to operate and facilitates in tracking progress to exercise goals. It easily allows users to look at how much time they’ve spent exercising, what distance they have reached, and how many calories were burned.

Let it Flow!

The BRD2000 sure knows how to make vigorous exercise more rewarding. With its high-momentum fan blades, the faster you pedal while on exercise bike mode on, the more you will be refreshed with a gentle breeze coming from the wheels.

Easy Resistance

As an entry-level machine, the Body Rider BRD2000 Elliptical Trainer with Seat does not come with pre-set resistance levels. Instead, you can easily change resistance levels at even the slightest turn of a knob.

Easy Assembly

The directions included in the package are very easy to follow, and the unit is light and small enough for just one person to assemble and/or carry it around.

Disadvantages

Sitting Pretty

On the minus side, this machine comes with an uncomfortably hard seat. If you would like to fully enjoy the benefits of the Body Rider BRD2000, it would be best to purchase a more comfortable bike seat.

Small Strides

Taller users would have a problem taking long strides, while using the machine as an elliptical trainer. A quick solution is to reverse the handlebars, though. But, that still would feel kind of awkward.

Loose Screws and Worn-Out Belts

While it is definitely an advantage to have adjustable resistance, the knobs, as well as nuts and screws loosen over a fairly short period of time.  Also, be ready to replace the nylon belt soon, if you are a frequent user. It is nylon after all, and it wears out easily.
