    Tall Man' Recumbent?

    Hi folks,

    I'm 6'7'' (37 inch inseam) and 260 lbs and have been in the market for a good recumbent exercise bike that is under 500 bucks.

    I've been scouring amazon's user reviews to find the best recumbent and I was impressed with Schwinn's scores on the 213 and the 230. One poster said he was 6'3'', another said he had a 35 inch inseam.

    I thought this was ok, so i went to Dick's to sit on the bike before purchasing it. Truth be told, the 230 was a bit snug, if I had maybe 3-5 more inches of pedal room, it would be perfect, but if i'm spending this much cash, I want to be totally comfortable. They didn't have the 213 in stock.

    So if you know of a well reviewed bike that could accommodate my height for under $500, please let me know. Thank you.
