Hi im getting lower back pain ive had it for a while. So ive been off the road bike for a few months but ive been missing it so started again but im still getting pain in the lower back the bike set up is the same as ive always had and ive lifted the handle bars up with a few spaces. Its not to bad when im sitting but when i get to a hill which i need to get out of the saddle thats the worst part. I stretch before and after a ride. I had fai on both hips about 2 years ago the doctor said that riding a bike would be ok, i wounder if cycling is causing the bad back as one doctor told me that cycling on the road in that bent over possition wad the worst thing to do if you have a bad back. Has anybody else have the same problem and whats the best thing to do as i love cycling.
