1260Ef QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Q: What is the minimum ceiling height I need?

You will need to allow approximately 10 inches above your height in order to properly operate your 1260Ef.

Q: Can I pedal in reverse?

Yes, you can.

Q: Can you manually change the incline?

Yes. Simply touch the incline button. Touch “+” to increase and “-“ to decrease.

Q: Does this include a Polar heart rate chest strap?

While the 1260Ef has a receiver that is Polar compatible, the optional chest strap is not included with your purchase. Either a Polar T31 or T34 (non-coded) would need to be purchased separately. NOTE: We do not currently sell these on our website.

Q: What maintenance is required on the 1260Ef?

Always inspect hardware prior to any exercise session. Look for loose hardware, loose pedals, loose handrails, loose cranks and frayed wires. Repair or replace any damaged or worn parts, tighten all loose hardware. After workout, always wipe down your 1260Ef unit. Perspiration that continuously settles on frame, pads or casing may eventually cause rust or damage to the unit. Use a mild soap and warm water to wipe down the machine then dry with a clean towel after each use.

Q: Does it come assembled?

No, it arrives approximately 80% assembled in the box and does require some light assembly. All necessary tools and instructions are included in the box.

Thrilled every step of the way! From inquiring to ordering to delivery from Diamondback, the company staff was awesome! Most people are concerned about the assembly so I'll be frank. If you have what it takes to inquire, choose, and order this elliptical, you have what it takes to assemble it! I recommend two people for the job, and one of them should be quite strong. My husband had the back, and I had the brains... just kidding. We organized and laid out the parts in steps, took it slow, and actually had fun because it was exciting. Voila! It's even better made and more attractive than advertised! We are more than satisfied, we are thrilled with every aspect. Now to climb aboard and get in shape!

Verified Review for 1260Ef Elliptical Trainer - Rated "Best Buy"

Have only had our elliptical for 2 weeks now but so far has lived up to its ratings. Offers a variety of workouts that my wife and I like. Delivery couldn't be made to our home since we live back a winding lane. Made arrangements for delivery at a neighbor's house. Once we got it to our house, it's heavy and awkward getting it into the basement. Plan on at least 4 people moving it safely down any stairs. We fully assembled it in once in the basement and this process was fairly easy. A few quiet noises persist but nothing indicating it's flawed. Seems to be a solid product and we like how compact it is.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Verified Review for 1260Ef Elliptical Trainer

We love our elliptical. It works really well & doesn’t take up a lot of room. 4 stars instead of 5 because we did have issues with it making noise & we had to replace the rollers and put silicone on the rails which fixed it. Wish it had a place for an iPad or phone & connectivity to smartphones & wifi. But overall we would definitely recommend it.

Perfect workout - 5 years strong

I have had this machine for 5 years. Came upon this page and decided to give a review. This machine has stood up to 5 workouts a day for 5 years. OK, some days I was lazy but mostly 5 days a week. The control panel offers may workout options. The sensors track heart rate. Miles are recorded. Segmented workout timer, too many options to comment on all. There is a book holder lip on the control panel. I put my iPad on it and watch a movie or TV show or Hulu while working out. Before you know it you've got 45 minutes in and done. This machine has been a constant and reliable part of my workout life. It is worth every dime!! Pros: Many program options, sturdy, strong, reliable

Yes, I recommend this product.

Very Good Elliptical

Good solid equipment, but for the 2000 dollar price tag, I probably could have gotten something a little less expensive. Not saying I dont like the elliptical, just think it was a little pricey! Pros: comfortable for stance and stride, unlike others I have owned. Sturdy, no wobble, quiet

Yes, I recommend this product.

Great Cardio Machine!

Bought the machine for my wife as recommended by her doctor. Although she has not adopted it, my daughter and I use it for a cardio workout when we do not feel like heading to the gym. The machine is close to our gym ellipticals. It is smooth and easy to use. We have had issues with both rollers binding up. I contacted customer service and they sent me replacement parts and easy to follow repair directions. Other than that is has been trouble-free. Pros: Close to the elliptical in my gym.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Nice recovery

After several orthopedic surgeries in the past three years it was time to give up impact activity. As we can have some pretty heavy winters around here, I wanted something that could work my entire body indoors. This trainer came highly recommended by Consumer Reports and I agree. My recovery has been greatly assisted by using your trainer and I look forward to using it every day. Pros: Great Quality, Small area footprint.

great machine

this trainer is exactly what i wanted. Provides a great workout at whatever level you want. I've used it 4 times per week for 5 months and have had zero problems. the machine is very sturdy and can handle a lot of use. the incline feature is fantastic and really allows control over the workout. I started slow and have worked upward with a large variety of workouts. It is a large machine so you have to check the measurements to make sure you have room for it. Pros: great workout
