vintageinfants said: in order to stretch it out and and get rid of the feeling like someone has poured concrete down the whole back of my leg it requires a workout that's strenuous but low impact, which is why i chose fixed gear.

gonna be a long road in getting back to any kind of suitable form for this guy.
J i m s t e r said:Also, from reading about how pro cyclists do it, try not to drop your rpm below 60 where possible.
Slow rpms are the domain of Mashing, which is what 'Leech and dem are talking about for being so hard on your knees. I was a macho masher for a while, before I knew better. Would shove the biggest gear possible uphill, bending cranks, pedals etc in the mis-formed assumption that a slow, hammmering-heart crawl was doing me more good than sticking it on a smaller ring and breezing up in less time.
And I wondered why I kept getting knee twists (off the bike).
