It is a spin bike, or a stationary bike. The reason I ask this is because I have been riding for about 10 years now and hopped on my fiance's health club membership during this winter. I figured this would be a great idea since I normally hang the bikes up for the most part except for a couple random rides in the snow with a few friends. Anyways, I have always heard about spin classes and I signed up for one. I must say that it was a learning experience to say the least. I am one of those guys that only likes to be pedalling and stuff if I am actually going somewhere. The thought of staying in one place, not being able to hop curbs, dodge trees, etc... just makes my brain numb. And as I found out last night at class, I had a hard time hopping out of the saddle without damn near killing myself. I tend to work the bike a bit more, hence where the problem comes in. I am sure after a couple more classes things will be ok. Anyways, I have frequented this site thousands of times but never had an account until the other day. Always on the top banner they advertised a spin bike that allowed the "bike sway" movement for when you hop out of the saddle. I always thought to myself "what kind of idiot would want one of those". Well, I guess this idiot.
