I have recently taken up cycling a recumbent (an Azub Eco). My pereneum thanks me, but immediately after a ride I feel a bit lopsided (more than usual). I presume I'm not sitting quite straight on the bike (or the seat isn't quite straight) so I am always leaning slightly. Is there an easy way to check whether I'm correctly positioned?

I'm not aware of a 'specific' way but I'm fairly certain that if you got the bike frame vertically level then placing a level across your seat would show you if the seat is level.
