Thuong and I got a new spin bike to use for our indoor cycling training this winter in our not-so-sound-proof Japanese apartment. We were looking for something that both of us could use, provided some decent resistance, and most importantly, something that was quiet.
Despite looking at all of the solutions out there currently, including wheel on trainers, smart trainers, direct drive trainers, etc, this was by far the best solution for our situation. Here’s a link to the bike we got here in Japan.

The exact same model is not available in the US, but there are plenty of similar alternatives.

Spin bikes usually range from about $200~$600, and are a bit cheaper in the US compared to US (as is the case with most things unfortunately..) Despite the price changes, I don’t think the quality of the main parts changes that much. One of the main reasons I went with a slightly more expensive model was because of it’s simplicity.. There are no extra unnecessary electronics (since I’m using my pedal power meters to connect to ZWIFT they are not necessary) and also it has a standard road drop handlebar in addition to the regular spin bike style handlebars.
All in all, we are very happy with this purchase. This thing is super quiet and I’ve been able to get some great workouts in before and after work now without having to worry about annoying my neighbors. A great alternative to spending a lot of money on the newer direct drive smart trainers.
I’ll be making a new video soon about using a spin bike with ZWIFT and how it’s been working for me for anyone who’s interested.
