What are the pros and cons of upright vs recumbent exercise bikes?

Does one burn more calories than the other? Any other advantages or disadvantages that you know of?

Thanks!

    the recumbent bike is definetly the way to go!

    I find them much more comfortable especially when performing interval training when performing at 100% effort levels...
