need help when choosing exercise bike.

hi everyone
iv been hanging around here for a while reading topics and such and learning.
and now is the time i wish to get an exercise bike for cardio.
i hope to get a spinbike, but dont want to spend over £150 maximum.
so i have been looking around and found these:

HappySports SuperPro Spinning Exercise Bike JS9.2 £104.99
(with about £30 delivery i think)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/HappySports-SuperPro-Spinning-Exercise-JS9-2/dp/B000RGP020/ref=pd_sbs_sg_4/202-2176833-7187834

TXB180 £129.99 (free delivery)
http://www.technofit.co.uk/product_details.asp?pid=1532&cpage=6

or
SPN1X Carl Lewis Fitness Spin Bike £114.99 (£29.99 delivery)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/SPN1X-Carl-Lewis-Fitness-Spin/dp/B000HDDXNG/ref=pd_sbs_dscm_1/202-2176833-7187834

i have also seen the carl lewis around on a different website for about £150 inc delivery.
i intend to get plenty of use out of whichever one i buy also, could anyone suggest either which one to get or mabe tell me if any of these are any good at all?
thanks
-matt

    yea iv seen posts stating this but nowhere near me is selling them and the local gyms dont even use them as they use the typical £100 jobie that no-one on here seems to like.

    Do a search for spin bikes on ebay, you should be able to pick up a used commercial one for £100 to £200.

    I took a chance and bought a Carl Lewis spin bike for £114.00 delivered about 2 years ago (I never used to look on ebay back then)

    It does the job but there are much better spin bikes out there (ex commercial) and I would not recomend anyone to buy one.

    As you said Matt keep looking on ebay mate.

    Have you thought about getting a recumbent bike? You're not hunched over like you are on a normal bike so it's much better for your back and your posture.
