So I got me this Stamina 9100 recumbent bike with pedals and hand cranks hoping to build up the strenght in the non-spastic muscles that MS has left in my legs. Once I'm on it, I can pedal...slowly at first, but it gets better...I can do 10 minutes noow, but I'll build up gradually.

Problem is...how do I get my feet on the pedals without help. Now, my DW has to lift them on, but the spastic muscles are still very strong, and she has a lot of trouble helping me without hurting herself.

Any ideas on how I can do this myself?
