    Had a slight problem on my ride today.They are thinking it's the Patella Tendon(the one that attaches the kne cap to the shin).Have this nifty cooler that has a pump,an inlet and outlet hose that attach to a wrap that goes around the knee.Comes with a timer to set how often it realeases the ice water.Also keeps your beer cold:)

    I had my patella repaired. It took a few years to heal up all the way, but I was back on a bike a week after the operation. (Okay it was a stationary bike at my physical therapist.)

    Take a picture of the thing for us ;) (Is it bad that we are as interested in orthapedic devices as we are in bikes? )

    Ok,the swelling has gone down quite a bit.The pain has subsided some,range of motion is alittle better.Keeping my fingers crossed it's just an acute case of Patella Tendonitis.
