    Kneepains

    Hi,

    Just wanted to share this with you. I've been having a pain in my knee for the last few years, on and off, most likely because of a meniscal tear that I've never had treated

    Anyway, last week I was out riding my bike and I got this knee pain in my right knee in the middle of the ride and after I got home my knee started to swell up and was very stiff. Anyway - today I went for a ride again but before I started I adjusted the hight of my seat/saddle (made it higher) so I would straighten my knees better and voila no more kneepain!

    So; I just wanted to emphasize the importance of adjusting your seat. I think this is especially important if you a) have knee pains, or b) are over weight ((like me) and there for at risk of getting joint pains!).

    Regards from Iceland,
    Andri
