Yesterday, my wife, a friend and I rode 20+ miles. A couple of other times I've ridden, I've had knee pain when I finished.
What I discovered during my ride yesterday was.....
Even though my LBS had gone through the fitting process with me a couple of times and I seem to have proper fit, I found that I was pushing my knees out as I was riding.
I'm 63 and weigh close to 250lbs and probably the extra mass I have in my mid section is responsible for this. But, I was able to ride the last 2/3's of my ride and keep my knees tucked in and close to the bar.
I think with practicing keeping my knees tucked in, this may eventually become habit and the knee pain will go away.
This morning, unlike most mornings after I've ridden, I have little to no pain in my knees, specifically the left knee, and I think this may be due to my knee push out/tuck in discovery.
Anyone else had this experience and found this correction to the problem?
