Greetings from Lenexa KS!

I have been reading info on this forum; decided to join in. I'm an "old" Marine that flew while in 1981-87. Ran a lot, (3 marathons while in)..... developed patella tendonitis in right knee; Flight surgeon injected cortisone twice. Lo and behold after I got out, my patella ruptured, knee cap was in quadricep. Had a great ortho who put me back together. Purchased a Bianchi Limited with Shimano 600 groupset Jan-Feb 1988, mainly to find something to do while rehabbing, and to find a more nonimpact activity. Still ride to this day. Had right knee scoped in '08, finally went bone to bone in '11 when I had my left knee scoped. Ortho recommended right knee replacement then; finally had it done this September. Placed Bianchi on trainer, and that is what I'm doing right now.....haven't really been riding to be competitive, but more for exercise....crankset 52/42, I guess not designed for hilly terrain....probably place a 38 for the 42 when I get started riding again.....that about sums up....old guy with an old bike ...... but it gets me where I want to go and do!
