Knee Problems

I have limited range of motion in one of my knees. It is so bad that I can't make a complete pedal stroke all the way around on a traditional bike. Does any one out there have similiar problems and have any of you tried a recumbent trike? Is it easier to pedal? Thanks for your help. I hate to buy one and find I can't use it.

Go try a test ride on a trainer of the Giant Revive, it's a semi recumbent. We didn't try a recumbent, but it's the only bike my wife can kind of ride, she has serious problems with her legs.

For full recumbent advice, post in the recumbent subforum.
