    which one is the best for loosing weight , and are there any significant differences in between running and biking as far as weight loss goes ?
    my knee is kinda fucked and was thinking about getting a stationary bike for my cardio/warm up...

    and any pointers for buying a stationary bike ? ( if it gives similar results as running )

    thanks :wavey:

    i prefer my road bike to running (treadmill or outdoors) or stationary bike

    i have no problem w/ running, but even running along the beach, where there's all that eye candy, gets old after like 30 minutes

    on my bike, an hour and a half flies by b/c the scenery changes so much

    If you're not going to run for running's sake, just get your cardio done however you prefer.
