Most anyone can ride a bike, whether it's a road bike, spinning bike or otherwise, but knowing how to choose the best spinning bike isn't always easy. Originally there was only one type of spinning bike, which was chain-driven, like a road bike. Now spinning bikes are belt-driven, and come with several different features and capabilities, making selecting one a difficult task.

Durable spin bikes are built to last. Some of the top-rated spinning bikes, known for their quality and craftsmanship, are the Star Trac Spinner bikes recommended by spinning.com. Spinning bikes need to accommodate riders of all shapes and sizes, which is why some spin bikes are built to withstand weights of up to 136kg., like the Stamina CPS 9200 Spinning Exercise Bike. Durable spinning bikes are built with solid construction, which eliminates wobbling and creaking, and they have a levelling system for floor protection and stability. These bikes are typically made of stainless steel to prevent rust from moisture. And now many bikes, like the Cycleops line of bikes, have a rear flywheel, reducing the need for maintenance from sweat dripping on the flywheel.
Riders need to be able to adjust spin bikes easily. The resistance knob and emergency brake need to be easy to access and move; the seat and handlebars need to move up and down to fit a rider's body proportions; and water bottle holders need to be easy to reach while riding. The Body Solid line of spin bikes include an easily accessible water bottle holder and adjustable seats and handlebars.
Most spin bikes range in cost from £325 to £975. The more affordable bikes like the Stamina CPS 9200 don't include some of the features on the more expensive bikes like the Kettler Ergo Race bike, which comes with a digital display allowing riders to download workouts; record spinning sessions; view training programs; and access maps.
