Spinning Bike Recommendations
I've always used the Schwinn range of bikes at spinning classes and found it to be a really comfortable bike. I recently bought one for home and it's great.
I found the following link for you to have a look.
Hope this helps
If buying used doesn't bother you, see what the gyms in your are looking to sell - might pick up a good deal that way.
As a spinning instructor for over 5 years and having taught on many different bikes...I'd definately recommend the Jonny G Spinner NXT.
It is a very smooth ride, comfortable handles, easy to adjust....
The bike Wannabehealthy suggested is okay....personally I find them very uncomfortable....but that is just me.
Did you try Revmaster too? Revmaster uses a Kevlar belt instead of a chain so it's supposedly quieter than the Spinner bikes (which use a chain belt).

How do you like it?

I have used bikes that had the belt instead of the chain. Do not get that kind. The resistance is not that smooth as with a chain. The range of resistance is greater with a chain bike. And they are not loud at all!!!
The Star Trac NXT spinner might be a bit of an overkill for home use. Check out either of the mid range (but still commercial quality) Star Trac spinners -- the Pro 6800 or the Elite 6900. There is a comparable Schwinn unit in that range as well. The Pros go for about $750 and the Elites for around $945.

I have a JohnnyG SpinnerPro and love it.
At the gym I use a Schwinn EvolutionSR and like it as well.
I cast my vote on the Spinner NXT.
Fitness Junkie "Am also looking for the most quiet, stable and durable bike.
First of I am rep for this company, but do not wish to sell only to provide a factual preview to ya'll. It will not be available to clubs untill this Fall.
1.Magnetic resistance system (NO FRICTION...QUIET)
2.Computer on bike with
a. Hart rate monitor
b. Trip distance
c. Total distance
e. Average speed
f. Calorie use
3. Lighter Fly Wheel
4. New Steering Wheel with extra grip position
5. A built in bottle holder
6. Little wheels on the front side in stead of back side
7. No chain, but belt (QUIET)
8. Rear Wheel Drive (Wheel out of Sweat Zone...no corrosion)
Beacuse of it's magnetic resistance system, Belt Drive and Rear wheel drive...this bike is vitually maintenance free..making it durable.
