I was diagnosed with lumber spinal stenosis this past summer. My spine doc, who is a keen cyclist , said my 2015 Cannondale SuperSix EVO carbon did not offer as comfortable a ride as my back needed so he suggested I sell it and get a nicer bike. I took his advice and picked up a 2014 demo bike, a Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod Team bike. Way more comfortable than the 2015.
He said a so-called comfort bike (sitting upright, hybrid) was the exact opposite of what I needed. Riding leaned over on my road bikes stretches out my spine and relaxes the "squeezing" of my nerves in my lower back.
Here's my doctor-recommended "comfort bike".

The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
