exercise bike choice for back problems

I broke several vertebrae several years ago and I now have a kyphosis and spondolothesis ( please excuse the spelling!). I like to ride an exercise bike. I have an AIrDyne. I am finding this hurts my back a great deal. My wife says I should get a recumbent exercise bike. Would one bike be better than the other? Is either bike appropriate for me?

Designed to help provide good posture. Pull through strap construction offers more support and allows desired strap adjustment.
