Have you checked out the Elliptigo or the street rider? Can be used inside and outside.

Okay, before you start to laugh... try a Gazelle Edge if you can find one assembled somewhere. I have bad knees and hips and no problem. Not as much burn as an elliptical, but far less impact, much easier to fit in, and way cheaper. I can usually find one for around a hundred bucks. (Sears when on sale.) Also, there are plenty of online videos to fully utilize the potential. (Yes, you will have to put up with some SD and with Tony Little.) BTW, we've had ours for about four years or more and the only real problem is some of the squeakings that come and go. That doesn't bother me because I'm usually wearing some kind of headphones.

You will have to try them out to see which would be best for you.

I am a 6'2 male and live in a condo where all rooms are 7.5 (90 inches) feet tall. I am looking for an eliptical that's $999 or less. Are there any good ones that will allow me to fit without my head going through the ceiling? I also have somewhat bad knees and need it to have a good stride length.
