Default Anyone Using a Recumbent Bike ?

I have COPD (recently diagnosed) and use an oxygen concentrator 24/7. I have a small machine I take when I go away from home. I need to exercise, but walking with this concentrator is not easy, so I am looking for either a treadmill or recumbent bicycle. I am leaning toward the recumbent bike since I have bad knees and this would not be weight bearing.

Is anyone out there using a recumbent bike? Do you like it?

I had a recombanant exercise bike for about 10 years and really liked it. My wife, who uses a wheelchair, also could use it. My only issue was that I had a tendency to take it easy, probably because of the riding position, but that was really my flaw, not the bikes. I exchanged it for an upright bike, with a desk, so I can use my laptop while riding. I probably spend less time on the upright bike, but I think I ride harder for that shorter period. I have also had a treadmill, and even though I do like to walk, I prefer the bike to the treadmill.
