They've come a long way in the last couple years. My grandpa had his hip replaced last year and it doesn't affect him one bit, he does everything he used to do. He can sit on his tractor all day, he jogs, he and I go hiking together alot, you name it. I don't think you'd have any problems riding with a new hip, at least if it turns out as well as it did with my grandpa!
