Recumbent Bikes?

I just bought one because I hurt my knee playing softball eariler this year and this is the most unstressful way I can exercise, and possibly rehab my knee some too, does anyone else have one? What's your take on them?

  • A recumbent exercise bike offers many plus points in comparison to a conventional upright. Not only do those with back disorders find a recumbent bike more comfortable to use, many also feel greater physical benefits when using one. This is because when using one, the abdominal muscles relax making breathing easier and deeper, thereby giving a better cardiovascular workout.
