If not corrected, the poor positioning can lead to pain and even numbness in the lower body. Instead of suffering through, hit pause on your workout monitor, dismount the bike and make the necessary adjustments.

Not up. Not down. Parallel to the floor. An angle in either direction will not only make it difficult for you to stay on the seat, it will also put pressure on your lower back as it works to hold you in a poor position. When it comes to determining the best height for your exercise bike seat, the proper level should be determined by the position of your knees.
If your seat is at the right height, your knee will be slightly bent when the pedal is at its lowest position. From a generic standpoint, you can achieve this by placing your heel on the pedal and pedaling backwards slowly. Getting the seat in the right place forwards and backwards is important too.

Try going out for a ride with the handlebars where they are straight out of the box. Be forewarned, this is not an easy process to work through. Most shops have a few inexpensive stems for you to try out if you purchased your bike from them. If you feel low back pain, this could be an indicator of the handlebars being too low or your seat too high. Conversely, if you feel upper back pain, between your shoulder blades, this could be the opposite. The lower body and upper body should be treated as separate but equal components to your position.

Equally important to the location of the handlebar is your ability to access your brakes with confidence, and use your shifters with ease. This can mean unwrapping your bars, rotating them, repositioning your shifters, and putting everything back in place. Poorly positioned feet can lead to problems ranging from numbness and hot spots — inflammation of the nerves between the toes — to knee and leg strains.
A correctly fitting, well set up bike should give good handling in all circumstances.
