I don't know about the elliptical but it's low impact so I'm guessing it will be fine. Biking and swimming are great for knees so you shouldn't have any issues. I swim regularly. I don't do a lot of mountain biking anymore but I do some light riding on a paved trail. You do need to check with your own doctor though. There might be limits on how much pressure you can put on your knee when riding.
