Which exercise bike would you recommend?

I am looking into buying an exercise bike. I really need to get fit and I love cycling. But my DH works away a lot so I don't get to go out on my bike often due to the DCs. So I can use the exercise bike in the evenings while he is away.

But there are so many to choose from. I thought this one looks ok and it folds down a bit for when I am not using it.

Any ideas? Thanks

I bought a turbo trainer to fit my bike on for the same reasons, and love it. The bike geometry feels right, which it doesn't always on exercise bikes, and the combination of gears and adjustments to resistance really works. Downside is that there's no computer readout, but I don't mind that. Mine is this one Volare Elite from Halfords if link doesn't work.

My Dad has a turbo trainer for his road bike. I hadn't thought of getting one of them.

I had to put slick tyres on my mountain bike for it, but other than that it's great - much nicer than an exercise bike to ride.
