I've been having the same concerns and would love to know if anyone has an answer to this. I used a Soloflex and hated it for this reason.
I did find this site that briefly addresses the queastion: http://www.epinions.com/sprt-review-21E2-38B51C7E-39BC1C17-prod5
this guy says bowflex is better.
hope that helps
