Any one recomend a good Exercise bike?

I have seen the ones at the sporting good stores. They dont seem natural or bike related. More for non bikers. They have a 15" wide tractor seat, and short crank arms.

I have a trainer, but dont care for the odd wear & tear on my drivetrain & tire, and I cant do rollers.

Any good stationary exercise bike options? I'd like to be able to slap my own pedals & maybe seat so I feel at home on either my mountain bike or the trainer.

I have seen some that look like this, that seem to be close to a real bike set up.


any thoughts or recommendations?

Always good to get one that provides and measures Watts, HR, Speed, Mileage, Time, etc... and has built in pre-progammed rides (hill climbs, intervals, sprints, etc...). There is a company called Derri-Air that makes adaptors for exercise bikes so you can run your normal, regular bike seat on the exercise bike instead of those big, wide tractor seats. I own a Life Fitness (Life Cycle) C7i and ordered the adaptor from Derri-Air to run my normal saddle on it. I use this exercise bike during the winter season in the house to avoid riding outside in the below 0 weather and to avoid having to ride out in the dark. So it usually gets 3 months of hard use. Glad the clocks get changed on March 11th this year!

Here's the Derri-Air website:
