Limited-Edition Meb 8S ElliptiGO: Now Available Through CRC! Tue, 15 Jul 2014 02:15:37 +0000 Introducing the Limited-Edition “Meb 8S”
Patriotic-Themed ElliptiGO Commemorates Meb’s Victory in Boston on Patriots’ Day

To prepare for the Boston Marathon, Meb used his ElliptiGO 3 – 5 days per week for training rides ranging from 30 minutes to 2 hours. The ElliptiGO helped him get to the starting line healthy and run a marathon PR just two weeks shy of his 39th birthday.

In celebration of his exceptional running career and in recognition of the impact his Boston win had for the entire country, ElliptiGO has brought the original 8S Model out of retirement for this limited-edition bike.

Just like the first 8S models that carried the ElliptiGO founders’ signatures on them, the Meb bike features Meb’s signature and his motto “Run To Win,” along with a custom, patriotic-themed design to highlight his victory on Patriots’ Day. The 8S also offers a versatile 8 speeds, carbon-fiber drive arms, and a folding steering column.

This is a unique opportunity to own part of ElliptiGO history and celebrate Meb’s victory, and is only available for a short time.

Call us for details at 719-635-3833!
