Spin bike recommendations to use with Peloton?

Downloaded the app and have tried the classes on an ancient exercise bike. Was ok but the way the handlebars are means I knock my knees when standing up out of the saddle. Also doesn't measure 'cadence' which gets mentioned a lot in the classes! Sadly can't really afford the real deal right now.
Any recommendations please? It'll have to sit in the bedroom as limited on space so something not enormous would be good! If it has a holder for the iPad that would be good but not essential

I'm not sure what make ours is, but it's very adjustable (seat height, and position on the bike - you can move it forward or back, handlebars' height is adjustable too). The handlebars have an area the perfect size to prop up my IPad and still be able to see the small console behind. The console shows RPM, which I think is the same as Peloton's cadence (I use the numbers that way anyway), and then my resistance goes up in increments on 1 to every 5 on Peloton, so when they say to work at 45, I'll be on a 9 resistance. The only thing I can't replicate is the total output number they talk about, but it doesn't really bother me.
My free app trial is up and I wasn't going to renew the app, as I have other exercise expenses! But I'm starting to waver, especially with some form of lockdown seeming to continue...

Ive been looking at hiring a spin bike from a company - its cheaper than my gym membership was! I started a thread asking for any recommendations but didn't get any replies.
I have a road bike and am going to try putting this on a turbo I have but worried its going to wobble to much
