Just ordered a new bike for my wife. She is selling her recumbent. She is unable to ride it with her knee injury, (riding a recumbent requires more pressure on the knees then a wedgie, especially from a stopped position). Here is what we ordered her:
But her's is the women's medium frame. She test road one and her knee hurt a lot less then it does on her recumbent. So now at least she will be able to ride. The bike we ordered her should be good enough to just ride on the paved trails or do a century should she want to.
She is due to have at least one more, may be 2 more surgery's on her knee to correct the problem, ( because of her original injury she had to have damaged cartilidge removed, now there is not enough left for the proper cushion affect cartilidge provides a person). But even if she has a cartilidge graft or a cushion spacer disc put in she will still not be able to ride a recumbent, maybe for the rest of her life. She has accepted that fact. But at least she will be able to still ride a bike.
Here is the new computer I ordered: http://store3.yimg.com/I/webmountainbike_1788_7632096
My old computer disappeared some how. I think it was thrown away on accident. I usually put the computer on my end table next to my recliner. In front of the table is a trash can. I think the computer was knocked into the trash can and taken out with the garbage on accident by either my wife or myself. So this is a big OOPS! Oh well, kind of wanted a new computer anyway. The old one was a Vetta RT55.
I'd like your opinions if you have any, please.
