I'd get an old airdyne, specifically the white one with the analog dials.

I've used most of the old ones and this is my favorite by far.

Thanks , I actually saw one of those on ebay. I think it was around $200. That seems to be a good deal. I was also looking at an old black one.

Re: Best air bike for home use?

I picked up an older gold "Schwinn Airdyne" off Craigslist for $100 and I love it! The "computer" has a digital timer, and an analog display that shows Pedal RPM and Load Indicator. I contacted Schwinn about upgrading the computer and they said it would be over $200 to do so. The manual includes a table with conversions to Watts & Cals but I haven't tried to use that yet.
This model is just about perfect for what I need.

Surf craigslist for an airdyne until you find one for a price you are willing to pay. These are kind of the gold standard for this type of thing, just like the C2 Rowers.

You have your location set as Miami, that would be a prime location. Feel for you buddy.
