Can/Should I buy a stationary bike off E-bay?

I would like to add some cross-training (specifically biking) to my running as a I ramp up my mileage for my second marathon. The problem with buying a real bicycle is that I have no depth perception, and frequently crash into things. I don’t want to spend $100 a month on a gym, because I just don’t go.
So, looking at different stationary bicycles online, is it okay to buy through E-bay? Some seemingly reputable sellers have bikes for $125. Can that possibly not end in tears?
Also, what should I be looking for in a bike? I am particularly injury prone.
