Spin bike recommendations

Recommended Posts

Hi Brainstrust,

I did do a forum search but  couldn't find anything :(

 

I'm after a spin bike to hit for a few hours a week as a cardio alternative to running,

Ideally I want the best value bike in the under ~$300 range, or if there was a good special / deal on a better quality bike I can move that upwards.

There's quite a few out there, any recommendations or tips and advice?

Here's a bunch of links to the ones I've found:

I don't know about spin bikes. How is your training going? did you end up hitting any big weights after all these years?

Hahaha

 

Hey buddy, I wondered if/when/who would call me out,

6 or so years ago I was at about a 600kg training total, (something like 225/135/240)

Then for a variety of reasons I stopped training and sort of tried to get back into it properly a few times until I finally deciding to stop beating a dead horse and gave it away. I do still have a fairly impressive home gym setup, which is waiting to be unpacked at the new house. It might not get a heap of use, but it will be around if needed.

More recently I've started running with a view to do a marathon at some point next year. Spin bike is an option to avoid hammering the legs with so many kms each week.

How are you going?

That was a big DL and squat

Marathon, gross :P

 

I am still training, I didnt take it seriously for many years but started to PB on some lifts again this year (160kg bench, 95kg OHP). I went backwards a bit during lock down, but back into it now. Still posting in my journal (i didnt for quite some time). Any way if you do decide to get back into lifting I am sure you can hit some PB's within 6 months or so.
