I am looking to replace my stationary bike. The one I have now is a somewhat ancient hand me down and not very comfortable with low handlebars, so I want something that I can lean on my forearms without being totally bent over.
I was looking at the Schwinn 130 upright bike, but was also wondering about getting one of the belt driven flyweel type bikes, like the Pyhigh seems to have pretty good reviews. But since I am not willing to pay Peleton dollars for one, wondering how the quality would be in the lower ($500 -600 ish) price range.
Due to lockdown here it is impossible for me to try one and I have never rode a spin type bike before, so looking for advice/experience from anyone who has switched from a regular stationary bike to one of the spin type. If they liked it better, worse, are they more maintenance, noisier etc. I don't really do much outdoor biking, I kayak in the summer, so that isn't a consideration for training or anything.
Also if anyone has an upright or spin type bikes in that price range that you can recommend. I am 5'10 btw.
