You seem to have decided to buy a spin bike. In my spin classes we use the LeMond Fitness bike. It is great for class work where we are working on intervals, leg strength for climbing, etc. in hour long classes. It is sturdy and easily adjustable to get a good fit.

That all said it is not any substitute for a real bike. It just doesn't work like a real bike and so has its' limitations.

It all depends on what you want. For conditioning I think a spin bike in a class taught by a knowledgable instructor is hard to beat. For cycling technique and methods a rider needs a real bike. Maybe not an expensive bike but at least a bike that is the same type as you plan to ride outside.
