Clipless pedals - dodgy knee(s) - bike fitting
I know there are a million clipless pedal and knee related threads, but I was hoping for a bit of a case-specific advice.
I ride a racer, currently with toe clips and trainers. A few years ago I dislocated my knee pretty badly (around the outside of my leg) while jogging. Cycling has helped me build up and rehab but both my knees still don't feel great when (or after) cycling, a bit like the tracking is off kilter. For this reason, and for increased efficiency I'm finally going to invest in some clipless pedals and shoes.
So, first question: Does anyone with any similar knee issues (or anyone else) know of a particularly good pedal-shoe system for those with such concerns? Ideally, I guess, the system should be adaptable to specific gaits, pronation and cycling styles.
Which brings me to my second question: Once I've got the pedals and shoes, I plan to go for a cycle fit so that I know the system and my bike is set up so as not to increase the likelihood of further knee injuries. Sooo....can anyone recommend a good cycle fit (I'm based in London)!?
Any help would be great on either front. And sorry for waffling!
