    Maybe it's because hippies also like to cycle, so it's more appropriate to have the thread in the Social Room?
    When I looked, I saw several posts by people who've had hips replaced.

    Well it was quite regularly posted, with often posts quite relevant to recovery, then just stopped. Clearly location is important. Perhaps it should be in the sticky section of both knee and hip areas?

    Actually it hadn't seen any action since July of 2018. So I released it from the stickies.

    I'm fine with starting up a new thread or reinstating that one as a sticky if it has interest. But that's prime real estate and no posts in a whole year told me there isn't any interest in it right now.

    :) Fair enough. I'd assumed it was the other way around, that moving it had caused the lack of action. I hadn't noticed because 99% of the time I use exclusively 'new posts' as my interface, because the stickies to me are just a waste of screen space.

    Riding my bike again was one of the goals after my tkr. Now, I'm having a fun time doing it!

    There are still two bike threads stuck in the Social Room. But they haven't seen much action either. All the bikers must be out riding and too busy to post on BoneSmart.:heehee:
