R.I.P. Proform c630

So our elliptical died last nite. Joy was using it and had 2 mins left of her workout when the pedals went out of sync. We initially thought the belt may have come lose, or something simple. I opened it up and to my surprise, the cheap axle bolt had cracked off the left side of the wheel. I guess its a goner. Now where to donate it for parts?
We bought the thing off for $150 ($300 new) around October of last year. It was practically brand new - and a good deal for what it was. 7 months for $150 aint bad I guess. But the thing really shoulda lasted longer. That axle bolt is some super cheapo construction. Now we gotta find a better replacement...

Our C 630 just did the same thing, but our bolt did not break, the left side where the bolt turns into is stripped. Hopefully we can get the part because we've really liked the machine (have it had it 4 years and used it moderately).
