Hope you get better. I am still getting over tearing my ACL in half (and the resulting knee that could fold side to side as well as front to back). I am 4 months post surgery on an expected 9 month recovery time. I know what it is like to have the knee move in ways it shouldn't and I do feel for you.

r2wtrials, that is terrible.

I mentally quit riding every time I hurt something, but for some reason, I get all healed up and keep on going.

Take the time off, find a good (or great) surgeon and then tell us all about how you seem to have never been off the bike when you start back up. K?

Good luck no matter what you decide!

So what kind of brace are you wearing? Or are you listening to the people with good knees saying you don`t need them! I got my `pair` of CTI`2s in `95. I need to get an upgrade but that is yet to happen. I WOULD NOT RIDE without them.

+1

I can ride for an hour without braces and be in pain or quite literally all day over my favorite rocks with the braces on. No pain and ready to do it again the next day. The braces have changed my life. I started with a low cost pair of sixsixones and have recently gotten a set of custom fit donjoys with patella and shin guards. Good luck.

I wore a brace for a few months after my 7 months off last time... then moved onto a soft compression type one with metal hinges. All was ok and to be honest i doubt a full brace would have helped this time as the force was straight up my leg... no twisting involved.

Long story short me and the bike were heading backwards and unfortunately my foot jammed into something stopping it and my lower leg dead... the weight of the bike, me and the rearward motion just kept pushing and my knee popped. Thankfully it then popped back in again so not as badly damaged everything else anywhere near as bad as last time.

Moral of story for me... i've gone to twinshock to lesson the severity of the sections i should ride, but was out riding with 8 guys all on modern bikes!! I was the only one to clean the section as it stood and then decided to take it up a level... and here we are again :)

I will ride again but will leave it for longer and concentrate on strengthening the joint more, and yes i will use a brace from now on :) Great thing hindsight....!
But only myself to blame, both for the section i was trying to ride, the crash and also the lack of brace.

This bears repeating.

You can buy some now, or you can buy some after you mess up your knees.........but you will eventually buy some.
The only difference is maybe the messed up knees. No brainier IMO.

Electric Bike

3 weeks of experience under that little belt. - proper boots since that photo was taken.

Fully wound up that little electric bike requires flat in third for me to keep up. It can hammer along or creep at at below walking speed.



Ute is getting a bit full.

Rode up to the Swinging Bridge on my new Gas Gas

I've hiked the trail many times on my way to the best swimming hole in Yosemite, but today I rode my new Gas Gas 280TXT Pro up the trail to the Swinging Bridge, fun!

I rode my beloved 4RT in a serious practice for the first time in over a year at B-Town and......really stunk the place up.


Mayhaps a year in Twinshock was not such a good thing after all. Man, I really sucked today.......


Good news is that MIss Bitters really wowed them today with her newfound balance skills. Dead stick, even.

Not really. I don't think so. Maybe a little off, but not sucking by a long shot.

Oh Man up dammit! Ride OJ in itermediate in the morning which would make riding semi on the 4rt a breeze. Maybe find yourself a sponser? (TECATE).
