Here's an update - 18 months after my surgery. I started near Christmas 2012 with a (new) right knee that would barely bend. After hours rocking a stationary bike I graduated to painful stationary pedaling. Then I spent a year on a regular bike, first on my wind trainer, then carefully outdoors on paved roads, using a Hase crank shortener. With the Hase I was able to slowly rotate in a smaller circle on the side of my new knee. Over the year I was able to slowly move the shortener down the crank. Today I can now get on my bike, warm up with a few minutes by slowly and carefully pedalling, and then ride, "sans shortener." Hurrah!!! This success coincided with my bike being stolen from my wind trainer, which I'd set up to use on my front porch in early April. Unfortunately the crank shortener was still attached at the bottom of the crank (safety blanket accessibility), so now it's gone, otherwise I'd pass it on to you. Keep on trying!
