    I think the doctors are giving you the standard BS I don't want to be responsible for telling you you can resume your normal activities spiel. I have a friend who had knee replacement several years ago that walks and rides every day. He's 6 ft and over 200 lb and well into his 70s. There is no sign of him stopping anytime soon. I think you're the perfect candidate and once done, you will be just like The Bionic Man.

    Seriously tho, my uncle had both knees replaced. The last time I saw him he had no issues and was happy to be golfing again:thumbsup:

    @Mikie as I've said elsewhere, my wife has had both knees replaced. Your doctor has to tell you that they won't last forever. They won't. But you'll get 20 or so years out of them, and at that point they'll have to be redone. Or you'll be dead by then.

    If you keep hitting trees, well.....:facepalm::gag::gotnothing:

    You can keep riding. You'll have to deal with the reality that you don't have your own knees anymore. Cycling is better for your new knees than running or hiking, but it's not impact-free. Let no one blow sunshine up your skirt on this one. It's a limitation you'll have to deal with.

    The best thing you can do is abide by the PT instructions and not fall off your bike afterward.

    I find it very hard to believe that tennis (just about the worst thing for your knees) would be acceptable but mtb is not
