Default Anyone here use recumbent exercise bike?


I wondered if anyone here uses a recumbent exercise bicycle? I have osteoarthritis and my knees bother quite a bit. The rheumatologist told me to use a bicycle. I had used the regular kind of exercise bike before, but the seat wasn't comfortable, so I bought a recumbent one ~ the seat seemed comfortable. I have used it a few times, and found it to be comfortable while using it, but the next day, my back bothers really bad. I don't know if it is a posture problem or what. Has anyone else had this experience ~ any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

Nobody can force you to have a certain attitude. But life will go so much better if you will simply choose to be positive. When you wake up, choose to be happy. Choose to be grateful for the day. (Joel Osteen)

I use a recumbant at my gym and I've never experienced back problems ... can you adjust the seat/back angle and try different positions?
