    Riding after knee replacement?


    A decade ago a doc told me that sooner or later I was going to need a knee replacement. The way things are going lately, I'm starting to think he was right.

    Naturally I'm thinking of what it will mean to my riding.... especially on the track, what with folding your leg up, dragging knee and all.

    Has anyone had the procedure done? Insight?

    my brother had both his knees done a few years ago, his therapy after surgery was riding a pedal bike. He can do everything he could do before replacement, but better, as if he were 25 years younger

    everyone has different results
