Hi everybody. I'll be 49 in September and I hope I don't have to wait another year before being eligible to receive advice from this subforum. I'm about a week and a half out of knee surgery for torn meniscus and want to get into cycling, preferably mtb. A former runner, I don't have a bike or any gear, and I'd be interested in hearing any suggestions on what to get, what to stay away from, etc. For instance, I'm guessing I should go to a LBS and stay off CraigsList. Thanks for your input.
