    Thanks for the reply, ny biker! I lean forward somewhat, and find that a very slight upward tilt of my saddle keeps me from sliding forward. That wasn't the case until I found the Lithia saddle with...

    After hip replacement: some questions

    I had both hips replaced 11 years ago - a medical miracle if there ever was one! I started cycling seriously three years ago, so can't compare what it was like before. I've had a fit from a...

    Sore sitbones

    Can anyone recommend cycling shorts that aren't very padded on the lady bits but more padded on sitbones? I have a good cutout on my saddle so don't need thick padding there, but about 20 miles into...

    Advice on well-padded gloves?

    I'm experiencing a lot of numbness in hands. Any advice on gloves that have good padding? Have just bought Giro Massa Supergel which unfortunately didn't seem too big when I ripped out the tags and...

    Muirenn, have really worked on spinning for the past weeks and you are so right. I've increased my endurance with the easier, faster spinning and definitely feel better in the knee. It's kind of...

    How about trying BMX pedals? I love mine, with sticky-soled Tevas. I'll never ride clipless as I've got three artificial parts that would react quite differently in a fall, so can't take the chance...

    I use BMX pedals with Teva sticky sole shoes. I think that, with both artificial hips and a knee, I have to reduce my risk of falling as much as possible, as a fall for me would be significantly...

    Thanks, All. I will check out the UPMC sports center in Pgh. and try to spin more. Unfortunately, I was never a very good interval trainer or sprinter, which is what spinning is to my legs, even...

    Thank you, everyone. I never even realized there would be PT bike fitters, and yes, we are close to Pittsburgh and only three hours from Columbus. Muirenn, my bike is a Cannondale Quick 4 with 3x9...
  14. Different bike fit for total knee replacement?

    Does anyone know of any bike fitters who specialize in fitting for those of us with artificial joints? I've got both hips and a knee, and although I don't think the hips would affect the way I ride,...

    Have you had any luck getting rid of the cyst/bump/boil whatever it is? Mine is in the same place and sounds the same. It appeared when we were on vacation and riding rented beach cruisers - flat...

    Hi Muirenn, and thanks again for the info. I was measured by Bike Rack in Burlington VT, by a woman - yay! - who was really helpful. My husband ended up buying the Romin comp gel that you recommended...

    Yes, my Terry is probably their widest saddle for touring. My Cannondale Quick is also pretty wide. Both are pear-shaped, and I keep them tilted up just a bit, as otherwise I tend to slide forward....

    5-10 shoes for flat pedals

    I am riding flat pedals and was advised by my bike fitter to get 5-10s for their midsole and arch support. However, the 5-10s for biking (Impact or Freerider) don't come in any women's fit. None of...
