bike that is easy on the back
I am new to the forum and I am search of my first bike. I used to do a lot of sports but a back injury stopped me in a jiffy. I think I am now ready to start over but I cannot do anything that is high impact so I am now looking into biking. What kind of bike would you recommend for someone with a lower back injury that it is still painful at times? If it helps I am almost 6 ft tall, 210 lbs, I have fairly strong legs (still) and I am 42 years old. I am looking for something of high quality but entry level that would fit my needs. Another member in the intro forum told me that a forward leaning bike would help me. I would appreciate if you could give me some suggestions. I live in South Florida (North Broward County) and I would prefer to buy my bike from a local bike shop (I have to do my part to help my local economy). I don't know anything about bikes but I would like to buy an America made bike, unless you have a good argument to buy something else.
