Have you tried one that is a standard length - is there really a problem here?
He has used other ones fine, but has no idea how long they were as he just hopped on and used them. Ideally we'd go try some out, but I don't know of any stores that let you do that, or even have them on display; they all seem to come from warehouses
I hope someone here can help as I can't seem to find any UK posts on good treadmills for taller runners. I've seen that, ideally, taller runners need a treadmill with a running surface of over 140 cm, but the only models I've seen so far with longer surfaces are really expensive and I'm hoping to only spend around £500. I'm 5'8" and my bf is 6'4" and we will both probably do more jogging than running on it, but I don't want to buy one that's too small for us to use.
Are there any taller runners on here who manage fine with shorter treadmill surfaces? Or is a longer one really the only way to go? Any advice much appreciated!
