works for exercise bike, not so much for treadmill

Summary: Mounts easily and works fine as a laptop shelf on the exercise bike, since there's little vibration. Did not work as hoped for on the treadmill, as the shelf shakes too much once you get to speeds above 3 mph.
Summary: This thing is great. It will hold a 17 incn laptop, just center it. I have a CARDIO ZONE CLUB HRT treadmill with a magazine shelf . The top is curved so I used both straps . USE BOTH ANYWAY FOR PIECE OF MIND.
Summary: I love the surf shelf! I allows me to watch movies and tv shows on my computer while walking on my treadmill. It was easy to set up and is sturdier that I would have expected. The only downside that I can see is that it sticks out from the control panel making the usable surface of the belt a little...
Summary: There's no way to attach this laptop holder to my treadmill at a height where I could actually use the laptop. My treadmill is a Proform 625. It has a slot in the front for propping up a book.
Summary: While this is plastic-y and feels a bit cheap, it absolutely works perfectly. I use with with my laptop on my Nautilus US14 and it's perfect. It moves aside easily and without hassle if I need to reach the controls, but it stays in place when I need it to as well.
Summary: It wasn't quick and easy figuring out how to strap this on to my particular treadmill. It was even somewhat frustrating at first. But since it's designed to work with various machines, this is kind of understandable. It does exactly what it's supposed to do.
Summary: Just a heads up to anyone thinking about getting this. Really not suited for laptops larger than 15" and you really can't "work" on it, it's too "bouncy", just a fair warning. Other than that it's great, so I'm keeping it just in case I need it even though my laptop is 17"
Made my own "treadmill workstation" and saved $4,400.00!!!

Summary: LOVE the SurfShelf! Use it 3-5 hours per day while I work. Sitting will kill you. Treadmill workstations are $4,500. Made my own for $140 with a treadmill I picked up on Craigslist and the SurfShelf. Amazing change in how I feel (working 50-60 hours per week on the computer).
Summary: Since I work from home, I wanted to be able to get some time in on my treadmill especially listening on long conf calls. I had no idea what kind of products were available to be able to use my laptop and treadmill at the same time. I was excited to find the Surf Shelf and at a price worth trying.
