Well I have had the M7 for almost three weeks and I still do not have matching handlebars. First they sent a new left side bar, then two handlebar assemblies, and now I am waiting on a new right side handlebar. Meanwhile a couple days ago my M7 started making a thumping noise and yesterday started squeaking. The concept of this machine is great if they could manufacture matching parts. Also the heart monitor is not very accurate when it does engage with machine.
Looks like I will return it. It's just too loud for a house with the thumping and squeaking, even if I had matching handlebars.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
