I just had knee surgery so I'm thinking I should ride for a while
with some knee protection. Any favorites?

Six Six One makes some quality gear. The EVO may bs a good choice. Check.with your doc though.

What kind of knee surgery? I had arthroscopic surgery to remove torn cartilage and arthritis in may and was back riding 3 weeks later with no brace or pads...  I tried riding with a knee brace/pad before I had surgery but it was not fun at all
