The 1060ef does have a lot of moving parts, most of which are external. This not only lets us accomplish a small unit footprint but also gives the user access to points of maintenance. If you find that your elliptical is making a lot of noise while in use, adding grease to all joints can make all the difference. Our favorite type of lubricant is white lithium grease but any type will work. You may also want to tighten the joints that were part of the assembly process.
