    I want to look on ebay for a cheap magentic indoor bike trainer, like one you can put your bike on and pedal in place, and haven't found anything that sold for under $100. Not looking for anything quality here, just an indoor bike trainer to use throughout the winter, regardless of the weather outside.

    Try Craigslist. These things go up for sale all the time and you might find a better one then you bargained for! You have to look in a couple of sections; first is the bikes section, then the sporting section. But do yourself a favor, if you find one on CL then check the internet to find out how much they sell for used so you don't get spanked. It may take you a month to find one this way but you will get a better one then a trying to buy a cheap new one for under $100.

    But if new is what you want this place is having a sale: http://www.performancebike.com/bikes/CategoryDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10052&langId=-1&sortBy=offerprice%2F%2F1&searchType=categoryId&searchTerm=400133&beginIndex=0&pageSize=16&ipState=c0%3Di%253A1%253B3%253Biphrase%2Bbundle%2Btaxonomy%2Bid%2Bfrom%2Broot%253B400133%253B%253A400133%253B1%252C1%253B0%26q%3D16%26a1%3Diphrase%2Bbundle%2Btaxonomy%252F%252Fv%253A0%26a0%3Diphrase%2Brelevance%252F%252Fv%253A0%26i%3Dsitemap%2Bid%26k0.0%3D400133%26qt%3D1329113150%26qid%3DqMUY686Po15x2%26vid%3DvOB05u5N4h8L9%26ioe%3DUTF-8%26s2%3Dsitemap%2Bid%252F%252F1%26qtid%3DqMUY686Po15x2%26s1%3Diphrase%2Brelevance%252F%252F0%26rid%3DrmtDNT5yneWf9%26s0%3DDollar%2BRank%252F%252F1%26t%3D0%26m0%3Diphrase%2Bbundle%2Bid%26mcmode%3Dtest&cn1=&categoryId=400133
