    hardware interfering with riding?

    I broke my tibia in five places two months ago. I got a large plate and eight screws.

    I am wondering if the hardware will bother me mt biking? I just started walking again and I can feel it. Does anyone have hardware that bothers them?

    Also anyone whos had an injury like this how long were you off the bike? I have been riding a stationary bike in my cast for the last 6 weeks. Its getting easier but its not exactly comfortable.

    I am hoping to get back on the bike at some point this summer.

    Once your healed up riding will be fine, its streaching out all the ligaments and muscles that is hard.

    I had hardware, bone didn't heal, gotta graft, year later, I started streaching, still am 30 years later.
