Put my new Flow NX2-RS bindings on the TRice and went to the hill on Saturday. I'm not quite back to full speed yet but I'm getting close. I think the 2.5 degree canting and my tweaked binding angles (went from 15/0 to 15/-9) are going to help quite a bit. Felt pretty good when I woke up on Sunday and I'm hoping to get back out a couple times this week and the weekend for sure.

I'm glad that I only missed about a month and can take advantage of all of the snow we've gotten!!

Just got back from the hill and I'm pretty much back to full speed. The new bindings are great and the knee feels good. I'm sitting on the couch and I don't have any pain or stiffness.

Great news! Glad to hear your op, rehab, and best of all New Gear, worked out and improved things for you.

Glad to hear it. Keep at it, don't stop and you'll see how much easier boarding is when your hips are in shape.

Thanks guys. I'm going again this morning and it will be interesting to see how it feels after consecutive days. It's -4 right now but it's a beautiful sunny morning so I'll just add a layer and roll with it.

I've put on 5 pounds over the past month or so since I couldn't do much cardio but I'm gonna get back at it this coming week. I've been taking Zylflamend for the past couple of weeks and I'm hoping that it helps with my joints.

It's going pretty well - thanks for asking. Been riding for the past month and the knee feels pretty good. It still gets a little stiff at times but I'm back in the gym and working on the supporting muscle groups.

No problem, I wish I could change the title of the thread though.
