My knee's take a bit of a thrashing from cycling long miles so trying to figure out what's good to take to help them. I started taking Glucosamine from GNC... .This product to be more specific.

Is this stuff any good or are there better alternatives for getting stronger joints, ligaments etc?

maybe you could try MSM and silicium, I think these products are good for the joints...

Systematic stretching helps a lot.

FYI, Triflex's ingredients are 100mg Sodium, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM. Did a google search and some places claim that MSM doesn't do shit.

I tired this stuff which had msm, glucosamine sulphate and some other weird enzymes in it (might have been msm). I had def problems with my knees as I push 500kg leg press twice a week...within 2-3 weeks the symptoms disappeared...but I took a rest as well.

But since taking it no problem.

O yeh...most important...warm up. I noticed if I did heavy leg pres without a warmup = screwed.

Probably stating the obvious, but....

Have you had your position on the bike checked?
Small mods in saddle position can help make a big difference.

Quite impressive your Leg Press poundage, but I think it's a mistake to do any exercise without proper warming-up (and pyramid the weights up).

indeed i learnt the hard way... i used to be fine...starting cold on 340kg or so...and then lately my knees started messing around...now i warm up on a bike at cadence 100 and wattage 130w for 10 min...and then i ramp it up from 300kg.

combined with above supplements...no problems.
