I blew out a disc in my lower back, had surgery, then blew it out again a couple of years ago. I used to ride my diamond frame a lot, but with my bad back, that is a thing of the past. My back is somewhat better these days and I'm feeling the need to get biking again.
I was set on getting a bent (my bike shop carries Bacchetta Giro 26 and Strada), but I'm curios about crank forwards. From your experience, or what you've heard, which would be the easiest ride for a bad lower back - bent or crank forward?
Thanks very much for any input.
