Let me save you a bit of time and money. Don't grind away your knees riding a fixed gear up and down 4000 foot climbs. You may do alright for a while but it's likely to catch up with you. Infrapatellar tendonitis, chondromalacia patella, osteoarthritis, Baker's cyst ... you name it. You ARE doing permanent damage to your knees. It may not show up right away, but do it long enough and you'll pay for it.

When I first went into practice, I found it hard to tell people, "Don't do that." But it's often this simple advice that is most beneficial.
