    Spin bike reco?

    Have $1k via work to pick up a indoor spin (exercise) bike, any favorites out there?

    (have a roller already, cannot get a turbo)

    I've owned and used a Lemond Revmaster Sport since 2011. Lemond Revmaster Sport Review is some review info from me and one or two others on this particular model.

    Overall I am pleased - particularly since parts are still available and this thing can be worked on my a mechanical klutz like me. But one other person you'll see had a different experience.

    Cannot buy a Lemond- dont like greg.

    anyone else?

    For me its about serviceability, it bizarres me out that reputable big (giant, trek, etc) hasn't put out a bike that uses shimano parts- why would a s*it company like star trec made in india think THEY know better than shimano to cobble together their own bottom bracket and all sorts of ******** engineering moves?

    Why- if you don't have to worry about weight make something tough cheap and better/more reliable than a kmart bike?

    is the answer turbo trainer and to hell with it when you twist your frame?

    not interested in a kieser.
