Hello, everyone! I have an unusual treadmill requirement, and I'm hoping the many specialists out there will assist me. I've had my Healthrider Softstrider 600 HRC for over a decade and adore it (d). In comparison to other gym machines, running on the 600HRC seemed like running on a cloud, and it's exceptionally solid and shake-free. When I'm away from home and have to use other equipment, I've always noticed that my speed and perceived effort diminish substantially. It's not a case of my home treadmill being "off" because I use a GPS-calibrated Garmin foot pod. My treadmill runs are frequently limited by knee/leg joint stiffness as I increase speed and distance. The deck fractured lengthwise around five years ago, and TMD sent me a downgraded third-party/generic deck. It had to be hacked down somewhat using a jig saw, and it is missing the 14" length.
