Kurt Kinetic Road Machine bike trainer: https://amzn.to/3k0LcRd I haven't ridden every stationary bike out there, but I have ridden a lot of them. The Keiser M3i is low maintenance, very durable, and has all the features I love (RPM, WATTS, HEART RATE, GEAR NUMBERS, LEVER FOR EASY SHIFTING, 4-POINT ADJUSTMENT). Please note, the "M3" version does NOT have the fore/aft handlebar adjustment and I do not recommend it. Instead, select the M3i.
