If I really wanted an elliptical machine and I had your problem, I would look for a machine designed for a tall person. I would remove anything from the frame that could lower it down without destroying it's structural integrity, and then lastly, I would remove a section of drywall from the ceiling to allow proper head room.

I know, it's extreme, but I would do it. Removing the overhead drywall would recover some valuable inches and could always be restored in the future.

Can you compare different models online and see what their measurements, including height for the pedals are?

I don't know any to recommend off hand; but, hopefully, you can find something. Otherwise, may need to consider a treadmill? Good luck with your search!

I am 6'2 with long legs and live in a condo where every room from the floor to the ceiling its 7 feet. Are there any elipticals that would work without my head hitting the ceiling?
Thanks!
