What's easier on the knees - saddle nose behind or in front of center of cranks?
I have a new road bike, and although the seat height and the measurement from saddle nose to bar tops is the same as my race bike fit, my saddle nose on the new bike winds up a couple cm further behind the crank center than on the old bike. I guess there is a shallower seat tube angle on new bike.
Is this harder, or easier on the knees, to sit further behind the crank center?
I've been commuting alot this year, and have had some trouble with knee pain over the patella (both bikes).
It started on the old road bike, which had the nose only 3.5mm behind crank center.
The new bike sits a few cm behind, it looks like.
