Lately Iīve been getting this pain in my left leg when i ride.
Itīs in the opposite side of the knee, the joint.
Itīs most noticeable in the beginning of my ride, usually goes away after about 10 miles give or take a few.
Anyone know what could be the prob?

take a look at this article it has some information on knee problems :)
Do you stretch before you push off for your ride? What about a good warmup for the first 5-20 minutes to get the muscles loose?
You gotta stretch them hammies
Thanks for the site, could be helpful in the future also.
Just for the record I already stretch like a madman.

I had the same problem... a while ago.. it basically fells like the muscle is sore, and kinda pops during your spin ?
if the answer is yes, did you recently raise your seat at all ?
I found my saddle was about 1 inch too high, and my leg was stretching too far in my spin. Lowered it down, took a few days for for the pain to go away,a nd have had no pain since...
good luck.. let us know how it goes

Agree with Sipper a high saddle will give pain to back of knees, to low hurts the front of knees.
