If you buy from a good bike shop they should be able to fit the bike to you correctly. Tell them your issues.
Ok, here is a concern: last summer Ms. LD talked me into a stationary bike class. Ok, fine. But the result of a hard seat, and inability to unclip shoes (stuck) was a damaged prostate/dangly bits. The injury took a while to heal. And I am a bit concerned that bicycle riding could repeat?
I'm not far from 60 and ride a bicycle an hour a day, every day. Sometimes it's 20 miles on the road,
When I was a young lad of 60 I could still ride a bike. I am trying to now but my feet keep falling off the pedals, I have no muscle control below the knees and the feet flop where ever they want.
Wow, 20mph AVS - you da man. I have a hard time doing 16 at 62yo!
I've read that recumbent bike riders don't seem to have that issue, but to me recumbents on the road look like death traps - way to low and out of drivers' lines of sight - even with their little flaggy things.
I ride a stationary bike 20 minutes averaging six days a week besides other exercises. I walk instead when time and weather permits. If it was practical for me to ride a bike outdoors instead that would be much better. I have been forcing myself to ride the stationary bike for about two years now because I really need to, but I HATE THE THING!!! If I could not watch TV while riding it I don't think I could continue to do it. I have to have my mind occupied elsewhere. It really does suck. :P I also keep my mind occupied thinking about what various firearms would do to the bike. GliderJohn
Another thought on recumbents - this is kind of out on the fringe of the fringe:Cruzbike makes front wheel drive recumbents. So the drive train, so to speak, is much shorter and more efficient. I've never been on one, but talked to a rider who was very pleased with his. It was a mountain bike conversion job - they used to sell a kit with which you could make a front wheel drive recumbent out of an ordinary mountain bike, ideally one with a low top tube and rear suspension. It looks like they quit doing that, don't know. He was a committed no-car type biker, and that was the bike for him.
Bikes have changed a lot since the last time I bought one in 1984.
