Yes, but OTOH, when winter is over with, I can fold my trianer up and put it in the closet and not have it in the middle of my bedroom or office. Unless your house is large enough and/or you have a separate room in the house for exercise equipment, a spin bike is always in the way. Even if you store it in the garage, it's still fairly big and will be in the way.

Also, I can take my trainer with me when I go on vacation. It fits very nicely in the trunk of a car or behind the seat of my truck.
