Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

NYC Orthopedist

I figure this is a good place as any, if not maybe you could point me in the right direction. I'm lookin for a good Knee / joint Dr. in NYC who knows a little more about bicycling specific knee pain and injury and who isn't a big proponent of using the knife.

I've tried moving my seat up, down, left and right, adjusted the cleats and pedals, gears, etc .. and still having a bit of pain and moderate swelling. Think its about time to go see the doc.

Thanks

I really, really like Dr. Jazrawi at... NYC Joint Center? on East 18th St or so. He's incredibly busy, and therefore sometimes brusque, but he made a really good impression on me, and I normally distrust doctors. I didn't see him for a knee; I saw him for first elbow and later cycling-accident-related wrist injuries, so I can't speak to his knee-ness.
