Brent Teal of Eugene developed an elliptical trainer called the ElliptiGo,.

Teal formed ElliptiGO with former work colleague Bryan Pate, after Pate had to quit running because of his knees.

"He said he loved using the elliptical trainer, but he missed running and hated exercising indoors," Teal said. "He asked me if it was possible to combine the elliptical experience with the outdoors."

They rolled out the first ElliptiGO models in February, and since then they have sold more than 700, mostly online at elliptigo.com, "but now we've started finding bike shops and fitness stores that want to sell them in the more traditional manner," Teal said

For real?? $1,799 for the lowest priced model?? I would love one, but that does NOT work for me. No wonder their sales numbers are low. Make em a reasonable price and get them into stores where people will see them and they'll sell themselves.
