Turbo Trainer or Spin Bike?

I sometimes find it difficult due to childcare/bad weather to get out to train I am considering getting a Turbo trainer but am wondering whether it would be a better idea to get a good quality spin bike? My concern is the hassle of connecting it to my road bike (I only have 1) and the damage/wear a turbo trainer causes? Any thoughts would be appreciated
I'd be interested in what people think about this too
i'd opt for the turbo - you'd be riding your actual bike that way. not sure about potential wear and tear on the bike, you can do some things to mitigate that (turbo wheel and tyre, for example).
Hi Nicola73, I got a turbo trainer for Christmas and it is really easy to fit my road bike to. Its just a case of swapping the back wheel skewer to the one that came with the TT and putting it into the bracket of the TT. My main problem is that when I turn my back, my other half has swapped my bike for his - starting to wonder if it was a Christmas gift for me or him
