Here I am a year and a half into the insurance business. My first real desk job, which means I'm also now officially the heaviest I've ever been - which might not be heavy by many people's standards but is completely unacceptable for mine. I'm also pretty busted up. Severe tendinitis in both elbows, lots of arthritis, abdomen reconstructed with mesh, and a bad back. I know I need to start exercising. I always loved riding bikes. I still have my 20 yr old Trek 1100 aluminum, but it's so uncomfortable in my condition I don't ride it anymore. So I got to thinking about recumbents. I know they are much easier on the body, particularly for people in bad condition like me. Things are pretty flat around central Ohio where I'd ride, so I don't have to worry about big hill climbs and some of the issues I've read about concerning recumbents in those conditions. I'm interested in experiences, brands, good places to do business with, or anything else you think might be helpful.
