Buying a spinning bike

I am looking at buying a spinning bike.. but oh boy I did not know what I was going to get myself into.

Any advise as to what I should look at?

Which is better Chain driven or belt driven spin bikes?

What should a good flyweel weight be?

I have had a look at the Schwin bikes.. just because I know the Brand.. but I am going to use it as my home spinning bike.. So do not need top of the range.

All your suggestions will be appreciated.

I suggest you tell me what state you're in.

If you're anywhere near me I'll let you have one for $50.

Reebok. It was used in spin class at the Y then sold to me when they bought new ones.

I never use it, i still go to the gym to spin

Thanks Zen... I am from New Zealand, so unfortunatelly I do not think that is going to work.

Ha! No, I don't think so either.

I would check ebay. Also, check with your local gyms. They may have a spinning bike or two they'd like to sell. The old Schwinn bikes are the sturdiest ones I've seen.
