Hi all. I have been a part of Spark for about 2 years. I am a walker...due to some problems I have developed with my feet I haven't been able to walk like I want/used to. I found my self turning to my 15 year old bike for a lot of my exercise in the fall. I live in Indiana and I am not a cold weather girl and it isn't always safe to ride in the winter weather (though I have seen a lot more people doing it...saw someone on a unicycle on Sunday after a snow storm!)
Anyway, My question is about Stationary bikes vs. bike trainers. My husband is telling me if I am going to get into cycling he wants to get me a new bike. Something lighter. So should I invest in a Bike trainer + a new bike or get a stationary bike then in then get a new bike closer to spring? I guess I am looking for pros and cons here.
If I decide to get a trainer, how do I track mileage?
I am not looking for a Recumbent style bike I want an upright one or even a spinner style bike.
Any opinions would be great.
