hey High, yep' like my bike....nothing close to 4K miles but I do like the bike. My surgeon told me I could get back in the saddle at 6 weeks out, my Uro who is an avid cyclist told me to wait until this coming spring......Sooooo, of course I decided to listen to the surgeon this past fall...My surgery was the last of July, I waited two months.....sometime in Sept I remember. Yep' in my case anyways....my "bike ridin' Uro" knew what he was talking about! I got out about a mile, one pretty fair incline coming back....never sit back down coming back. Sorta' sore it twas'....had the same problem in the gym straddling the seats on the machines. Just too tender. Now though, I can hit the machines, just have to force myself back into my routine and I'm sure I'll be fine on the bike when our weather gets right come spring.......I know it doesn't take long for those extra pounds to start showing up at this point, at least in my case, but time and patience my friend and listen to your body......Good luck
