My Ride: What else?
If you want to be able to watch TV, I recommend a Fluid trainer, they're much more quiet than Magnetic Trainers, which tend to get pretty loud indoors. (This can be an issue if you live in an apartment, or even in a house if you live with others)

Fluid trainers also better at offering variable levels of resistance, so that you can challenge yourself as you get stronger. They may be out of your price range brand new, but I'm sure you can pick up a gently used one for not too much more. (Check ebay, craigslist, or the classified sections of any cycling forum)

Riding inside can be pretty boring, but is a necessary compromise. The trick is to reduce the duration of your workouts and make them challenging. (I recommend either having a specific goal for each session, or getting some training DVDs to ride along with)
