As a slightly more expensive upgrade from the Body Rider BR1830, the Body Rider BRD2000 adds a seat, meaning it can be used as both an elliptical and a stationary bike. Unfortunately it too suffers from a very limited and unnatural stride.
LIke its peer, the BRD2000 features a chain-driven fan wheel with high-momentum fan blades that run quickly and quietly and are designed to limit joint damage. The difference is that this elliptical hosts a seat that can be adjusted vertically and horizontally so that people of different heights and weights can use it as an exercise bike.
That said, it's the most budget-friendly fitness option for folks who can't afford or don't want to go to the gym. And because of its dual function capabilities, you'll never get bored. If you get tired of the elliptical, just switch to the bike or vice versa.Click here to see what others are saying...
Included is an advanced digital console designed for tracking time spent working out, average speed, distance traveled and calories burned. Unfortunately the system does not track heart rate.
Also, the resistance must be controlled with a knob, which can be annoying. The good news is that the knob was designed to be very easy to turn, so that you can easily adjust the resistance level while in the middle of a stride.
As mentioned, the unit is limited by a small stride and undersized pedals. It's therefore not very comfortable for tall or larger folks. In addition, the pedals point slightly downward, which some have reported causes them to slip a bit while working out.

All in all, the Body Rider BRD2000 is not the best elliptical out on the market. However, it's the only one that, for this price range, allows you to work your entire body. That said, it's definitely worth considering buying.Click here to purchase this product on Amazon.
