First my name is Ed and we live in Traverse City, Mi. One year ago I had a posterior cervical lamenectomy surgical procedure on my c-3,4,5,6,7 and two fusions. With that my range of motion is limited vertically and some to each side. I'm still in PT and have some lingering issues with my muscles in my upper back ( trapizoids) and assiciated pain when they tighten. My conventional bike riding days are over and my wife still rides distance so I'd like to think a trike may be my answer. Other than the surgery I'm in very good physical health.
I plan to rent a bike locally but I'm concerned a short rental may not provide enough seat time to let me decide if the trike is the correct way to go.
Is there anyone in this forum with similar upper back or neck issues that could give me thier experience with these trikes ?
Do all models have the same range of seat adjustment ?
Are the handgrips positioned to prevent the rider from bowing their back vertically and horizontally across the shoulders ?
Is the 26" rear wheel a good purchase ?
