Hey folks: For anyone in the market to buy rather than build an adjustable height desk, Geek Desk has just announced several additions to their lineup. They now offer a version 2.0 model and a "Max"…Continue

"My GeekDesk Max arrived a month or so ago, and I'm loving it. I don't need the extra weight capability, but I love having the presets. My GeekDesk is in the spare bedroom/office/anything-we-need-to-use-the-room-for room. The desk is set up…"

"If you do decide to go the VOIP route, you might also look seriously at Ooma. I haven't been having an interference problem but have been happy with my Ooma service while walking."

Omar Wasow replied to stebboko's discussion Treaddesk owners - do you find the deck too short?
"I'm 6 feet tall, have been walking on a TreadDesk tread for a week now, and don't find it too short at all. In fact, my guess is that it could be 6-12 inches shorter and it'd still work fine (though maybe not at high speeds or…"

"Hi Omar! YAY! great pic.  I also see you also have vibram 5 fingers. I love to run in my KSO's and switch between some regular shoes and 5 fingers when i'm on my treadmill. I ran across some interesting research findings this AM that…"

"Thanks for the helpful ergonomic points. Though the GeekDesk Max is more expensive than the regular option, the adjustable height goes to 49 inches (it's at 46 inches in the photo) so I can raise it more than enough to allow my arms to be at a…"

"Nice, interesting that you were able to get just the desk frame. Can you get it to go any higher? Ergonomically, it seems like you need to look down at the monitor and your arms are a angled down."

"Likewise, congrats! As y'all predicted, my treadmill arrived earlier today and I've logged my first miles! Here's a photo: http://officewalkers.ning.com/photo/my-workstation-1    I run regularly and, so, thought walking…"

Day one with my treadmill desk! The adjustible height desk frame is the GeekDesk 2.0 Max. The treadmill is from TreadDesk. The desk countertop is a cheap door from Home Depot.

"Thanks so much for bringing the WalknCode app to my attention. That's precisely the sort of integration I was imagining. It's very cool of them to make the cross-platform app available to anyone with an iFit-enabled treadmill. Also, I…"

"Congrats. I got my tracking number today in an email from Jerry that apologized for the delay while explaining, "nearly 300 orders...were place before yours and we ship them out in the order that we receive them." Despite the delays…"

stebboko replied to Omar Wasow's discussion Direct link between treadmill and computer?
"WalknCode have a free app that does pretty much what you're asking that works with any i-fit compatible treadmill. I considered making an app for my own treadmill (which doesn't have i-fit) but thought I'd just put some kick…"

Direct link between treadmill and computer?

I've been thinking that an ideal office treadmill (for my purposes) might connect directly to my computer. I can imagine at least three advantages of such an approach. First, it might allow for a clunky treadmill console to be replaced by a small on-screen app or widget. Second, a direct link would make it easy to keep some sort of digital distance log. Third, by eliminating or simplifying the console, the treadmill might be cheaper to manufacture. There are already a variety of wired and…See More

Omar Wasow replied to David Preston's discussion TreadDesk backorder?
"Today marks the five-week anniversary of my order on May 20th and two weeks since I last heard from TreadDesk. My guess is that they keep no inventory and only place orders with their supplier when a customer places an order. This sort of lean…"

Omar Wasow replied to David Preston's discussion TreadDesk backorder?
"I haven't heard anything since that email from June 10th. The company keep setting expectations that it doesn't meet. Given that this is clearly a recurring problem (the original post to this thread is from October of 2010!),…"

"Hi Kwikitt and Anjali: Thanks for sharing your experiences. I'm glad to know I'm not alone. I'm not so worried about this being a scam. As Anjali notes, there do appear to be a lot of satisfied customers and they've received…"
