Helps with knee replacement

I recommend this product
Saw a different product at SJSCYCLES when I rang about was given a link to this. It's actually better than some others on market because it's infinitely adjustable.
I have used this to shorten by 47mm, the only issues I've had are cramps behind knee, found the answer was to drop my heel down at bottom of the pedal stroke just enough to stretch the back of knee.
As my knee improves I'll start to lengthen it again, one thing I've noticed is the difference on the down stroke. It's on 128mm just now, I'm considering getting another to shorten the other side to 160-165mm to see if it helps reduce fatigue on inclines.

If you see this and it interests you ring and ask for Jamie in sales as they have a different types for different cranks.

Used 3 times after 12hr shifts, works ok, couldn't use it on 175mm unless just woken & used ice. Definitely a cycling life saver for me.

I Have Limited Bend In My Right Knee

as a result I am unable to bend sufficiently at the top of the pedal revolution can you recommend a product which will allow me to cycle. I use a mountain bike
Hi,

Something like this crank shortener would be the best we'd be able to recommend, as it will reduce the amount the knee needs to bend. For a more in depth analysis and a better idea what length you should be shortening it too we would recommend speaking to a cycling specific physio therapist as they would be able to offer a scientific insight.

Thanks.
