Pain: left shoulder and feet
I just moved to a road style (touring) bike from my comfort style bike I was riding before over Christmas.
I'm noticing on this bike that after extended riding (after about 20 miles), I get pain in my left shoulder. Nothing "killer", but kind of like the pain if you sleep on your arm or something. I never had the shoulder/arm pain before, so I'm thinking I have some kind of fit problem. Any ideas what incorrect adjustment would cause that? And why it would only be in the left arm?
Secondly, I'm getting pain in my feet. It seems to be where I'm clipped in at. I have to stop once in a while to walk around for a minute for my feet to feel better. I DID have this on my old bike too, but it seems to be slightly more pronounced on this new bike. I'm guessing this is an adjustment to the clipless system, but what should I try? Adjust shoe cleats or pedal clips? And what kind of adjustment? Ideas?
