Bad9One9, I hope your knee works out. I had a full reconstruction done 25 years ago and can still almost rest my butt on my heels - so there is hope for you yet, especially with modern day surgical techniques. Now to your question. On the road I move my feet around alot, like others seem to also. But I always have my foot rotated so I can easily get on the brake lever and easily choose an up or down shift. Rotate feet in to over levers for turns. More important though, IMO that is, is where you put your feet when you come to a stop. It seems to me that more people get into trouble when they plant their feet on the pavement in front of the pegs when they come to a stop and go to move ahead again and get their foot trapped, or hook their pant legs on the pegs when lifting their feet up off the pavement, get rattled and lose their balance.
