Cycling (BMC URS 3) 1:18:45  17.2 mi (13.1 mph) +1247ft
shoes: Shimano RX8 Wide
8 weeks post-op. Just riding along. exploring, trying to spin easy without pushing with left knee. This is earlier
than doc would like so margin for error.
First ride outside in 3yrs, and 1st on XL BMC URS
Never ridden a bike like this. Definitely more of a MTB than road/gravel.
Rear elastomer Bobbing is disconcerting. 35 psi. in 42c tires.
Knee was ok but strictly seated, 90+ cadence.
Still don’t have control of left quad.
Pedaling squares. Maybe the bobbing is a good thing, a la Softride bikes - no choice but perfect stroke.
Spectacular route from home, miles along the cliff ZERO Cars up here. Love it.
Raise saddle ~1cm, seat back ~.5cm, look into longer stem. I get it wrt to the MTB geometry but need another cm somewhere. maybe lower too.
1st ride in Shimano RX8 wide gravel shoes. Awesome.
Did not even think about them the whole ride - good sign!
Q factor seems just right.
