I am having hip pain, especially after the purchase of a new bike. I have set the new bike up similar to my old bike, but the seat is one inch farther forward in its most rearward position. My old bike is a Cypress and the new bike is a TreK 7.3 FX. Pedaling in lower gears without using much leg strength seems causes less pain.
My pain seems to be from IT Band Syndrome and or hip Bursitis. I have been doing the stretching exercises and went to a specially trained Massage Therapist today. The treatment today indicatied how tight the muscles in this area is.
Has anyone else experienced this type of hip pain? If you have, what changes did you make to correct the problem?
