If I had delicate knees... I would probably stay away..

or maybe do more regular bike riding to strengthen them first.. :D

If you really wanted one...you could set one up with the gearing appropriate for your particular terrain and knees..

While I don't live in the mountains I do live where level ground is an optical delusion. Usually induced by being in a motor vehicle. And less common than you might think!
