Sorry to hear about the knee cap.. Do you know yet if it will require a surgical repair? I assume it would but I'm no doctor... Perhaps this winter will be the "polar" opposite of last winter and you won't miss a many of those nice unseasonably warm riding days.. Personally I could use a shitty slushy cold wet winter to catch up on all my bike maintenance.. I didn't see which of you was driving the truck when you showed up but hopefully gpj530 was driving on the way home!?! Heal up well!
