Works as advertised, but ....
February 12, 2019
Pros: Good fit for me if a tiny bit short on leg reach and pull strap (I'm 6'3").
Smooth and quiet for the most part (see Con).
Con: Bearings in seat roller were not very good quality (apparently used dirty or square balls). I happened to have some high precision skateboard roller bearings that were the same size and replaced them all.
Now it is very smooth and I think it will last a long time.
After a few weeks of ownership, I like it a lot. I thought I should look for a spare strap and elastic for it right away, though, so I plugged in the website address that is on the manual (akonzasport.com) . Nothing.
Tried "Akonza rowing machine parts" in Google. No luck.
Funny thing is, some images flashed up just for a second on Google of maintenance kits. Then they disappeared as the sponsored internet took over. WTH?
Yeah. There's something fishy on the internet. OWAS
