Hello! Those bikes look really awesome. I had knee surgery and had part of my meniscus removed from one of my knees a few years ago. I remember the surgeon telling me that a stationary bike was a great way to rehab my knee. Now that I cycle on a regular bike my knees do bother me a bit on hills and with clipless pedals. My DR wants me to have my bike fitted so it puts the least amount of stress possible on my joints. I just go slow up hills and do not stand and pedal unless I absolutely have to.

Welcome to the team from hot steamy central Alabama.

I had a "scope and scrape" on my knee. I had been having recurring issues and it has helped with some, but the arthritis continues to be an issue. I have found riding shorter rides more often is better than long rides. A few hills are ok, but a lot of steep hills is not good (I can't stand and pedal either).

Hiemoticon and welcomeemoticon to the team!
I am still dealing with knee issues (bursitis) for the second summer in a row, and although it is better, it is severely restricting my mileage and climbing... I sure sympathize.

Welcome to our SparkTeam filled with CyclePaths! :-)

Great to hear you are pushing your way back from your knee surgery. Hoping you'll find cycling a kinder, gentler way to SPARK!

Hi Team,

I have recently re-joined spark people after having knee surgery in january and gaining quite a bit of extra weight. Before my injury I began ridding with my fiancé and one of our couple friends. I enjoy ridding very much and have started to get back into it. I got the iBike thingy...yea, saw it during the Tour.... Anyone else use this and like it? Any tips?

When I get to ride it's at least a 10 mi ride and I try to keep it under 60 min. I haven't been able to stand and pedal on the hills yet, don't feel my knee can take it, but I am getting there.
Anyone else recovering from knee issues? Tips? Want to share workouts?
