Just found this forum! Used to be big into mountain biking in college in Pittsburgh (plenty of park trails and places to go for a city) running about 6'2" 172. Had a knee injury a few years back(sheared a majority of the cartilage off of my patella) while moving furniture for my now wife. Had surgery and recovery and shot up to 215 off of the bike. Now I get knee inflammation riding the trails. Street riding on the MTB doesn't aggravate the knee, but riding a MTB solely on streets isn't a lot of fun (for me). Hoping to get into a road bike soon and work on getting back to my lean mean self. Being a whopping mile from the Lehigh Valley Velodrome and a hotbed of cycling activity probably won't hurt to keep me motivated. Any recommendations for a reincarnated newbie would be appreciated!
