Hipcycler, I too am new to this forum. I came here looking for folks like you who ride after undergoing hip replacement. I think I am about 3 months away from same.
Some questions for you:
When was your replacement?
Was it a standard incision or minimal incision?
What prosthetic was used -- cobalt tipped steel and highly cross-linked polyethylene or other?
Probably not cemented, right?
What has your orthopedist advised regarding riding?
