This may be stupid question, and I am not even sure if this is the right place to post but here goes.I am super new to “spinning” , so here goes..
I know a “spinning” bike is much different than a stationary bike in that it is more like a real bike, so my question is would I get an as good as using a spin bike workout using a real bike and a cycle trainer?
for example..Photobucket


Thanks so much any input would be helpful :)

i don't know about the trainer either, but i'm guessing that it's better than using a normal stationary bike, even if it's not quite as good as a spinning bike. actually though, if you have a real bike the best option out of the four is to use it outside! maybe investment in some cold weather gear, lights, etc. is the best option?
