I think it's been said, but what I may do is drive to work with my bike and ride home, then ride back to work the next morning. I may do that until I'm sure I can do it without wanting to take a nap...

I think there is no question that this is doable, especially once a week. If you feel you need to work up to it, park along the path to lessen the distance. I doubt you will need to do that, but...

There you go. Obviously, it's not the same (as you know) but if you want to get on the bike it's a way to do it. I usually start my season (now) off with the hybrid and when I switch to the road...

Exactly. It's one reason I don't go do actual group rides. I don't have those skills. I'd end up causing chaos, most likely, and get beaten with tire pumps.

I'll say that like a flat bench, they REVEAL issues that you have rather than cause them. Agreed on most of your points. There is some debate on small things, such as the depth of squat and such,...

Just for fun, here is my last match. This was after my FIRST knee surgery and I'd gone up in weight (my fault). Obviously too heavy. I won't be that heavy again and fight. I'm 260 lbs in this...

Agreed on minimizing the risks. When I do traditional deadlifts and squats, it's with a weight I can reasonably handle. I like the magic of the trap bar and it's my primary weapon, and obviously,...

Yes, I can ride just fine. I've had two cleanouts on this knee and each has gotten me a few years more. Not sure how many more cleanings I'll get before the countdown to replacement.

Though I...

You kicked my tail, nice job!

My biggest year was right at 1600, and I vow to do better this year. It's great to hear your accomplishments as it helps motivate mine.

It does account for it, but it doesn't that it is all that is wrong. If the doctor, a qualified ortho person, did any scans than they are right. If they did basic stability tests then you still...

I think the hardest part is starting, and messing up a few times. I keep hearing that after that, it's not terribly difficult.

At least the basic things.

I don't see another Cannondale that is near the Quick series, however I see that some others have offered up Trek's version. I think that CLASS of bike may work for you, as it did for you.

I'll take a look and see what I can see. I'm sure Trek also has a version (or close) of that bike.

I'm Excited - Knee Is Taking Rides
