Does anyone have the spinner from Spinningtv.com?

I am researching spin bikes and this forum's been really helpful.
Right now My top choice is the Keiser M3. But to save money I'm leaning towards the Johnny G. The bike on spinningtv.com (as seen on tv) looks comparable. Any words of advice? :)

I am no expert by any means, but I have also been looking at spinning bikes. I would be concerned about this model for myself because I am so short and there is no way to adjust the handlebars other than up/down. I do not want to spend so much $$$ unless I can get a really good fit on the bike. Some of the more expensive models have fore/aft handlebar adjustment as well. Unfortunately, I have only seen it on the REALLY expensive ones! :(

Oh...good catch. I'm also short, so that would be a problem for me too!

I've taught this format since 1997 on all different indoor cycle bikes and I strongly suggest you stay with your first choice (Keiser M3). It has the most realistic feel and also comes with a computer. Additionally, since it uses electromagnetic resistance, you have fewer parts to break or corrode.

I only know one person who bought the TV version of the Spinner and they found it a little more cheaply made than the studio bikes. Maybe because they figure only one person would be riding it instead of multiple people during multiple classes?

I'm a little over 5' tall and I find no problem with the fit on the Keiser M3. Really, if you have a chance to try out different models, you'll definately feel the difference in the ride.

(No..I don't work for Keiser, I just really like the M3!):D
