    Anyone familar with Spin Bikes and if the saddles on them can be switched out?

    I have a medical condition that requires me to use a special bike seat if I am to bike and I have been using this seat:

    It's very ugly and isn't all that conducive to races or practical riding but it works for me and my needs.

    I'm looking into getting a cheap spin bike for my home for the winter, but I don't if a standard spin bike would be able to change saddles.

    I've been looking at multisports enc-200 endurocycles or possibly a cheap used one off ebay. I've asked several sellers on ebay and even called multisports to ask if changing saddles was an option but I have not been given a definitive answer.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Why not get a trainer so you can ride the bike and saddle you have?
    If you don't want to pay for a new one, they're always on craigslist or ebay.

    If the spin bikes you're thinking of are the same as those in the classes ... no you can't change them out.

    Get a trainer.
