I run about 25k a week and struggle to increase mileage without injury. DH cycles but would like indoor options for the winter.

How much should we pay for a good spinning bike and are they worth it?

Why wouldn't you get a turbo-trainer instead?
Which yes they are worth it, £90 for a good one off top of my head, 2nd hand.

Thanks, DH has had one in the past but he finds it damages the tyres. We thought the dcs could use a spinning bike more easily.

Yes, if youve got bikes already get a turbo trainer. Takes up less space and will be comfier. I got a decent one from decathalon for £100.

FetaC, I suggest get a 2nd hand spinner, good quality one. If you love it can keep or upgrade. Else sell on for close to cost you paid, not too expensive as an experiment to see if it would suit you.
