Knee Issue Finally Solved?

Besides the hassle of my recent broken collarbone, I've been haunted by a mysterious knee ache for about 2 months now and I'm pretty sure I have discovered what is causing the ache. I noticed while riding my new bike that during the crank rotation I feel a little "clunk" coming from the bike that resonates through the crank arm. I had Alex confirm what I was feeling last night. So in a typical 2.5 hour ride I figure my knee feels that little "clunk" about 12,000 times. :-(

Dang, I have cut my weeks down to just 200 miles due to the knee issue. I'll never get all those miles back. :-(

Simonster Training Ride

Alex, Bill, Greg and myself hooked up with Simonster for a good dirt road century ride. Funny, Mike told me he wanted to average 16.6 mph for the 100 miles and when I got off my bike at the end of the day my avg speed was 16.6

Greg, Mike, Robert, Bill, and Alex at the summit of the pine knob ski hill.

Bill helps me fix a flat tire. My collarbone appreciated the assistance.
