So I am a recent noob in the fixed category. I own a new kilo tt that I am changing up parts to give it a better ride.
After riding on the new bike for a week, I noticed that my knees are feeling kind of funny. It is harder to stand for longish periods of time (10 min+) and when going back to riding my road bike, my knees were definately weak to the point where they would hurt a little after putting any sort of pressure on the pedals. I dont think I hurt anything seriously... I though maybe I was straining muscles that haven't been used before to stop a bike.
There are no breaks on the bike now, but I am considering putting one on.
Now I am aware that riding fixed puts a whole new set of pressure on the knees, and after riding for a long time, it can mess up your knees pretty bad, but I was wondering if there was any way to remedy this problem.
I am taking it easy off the fixed for a week or two while my knees recover. Any comments would be helpful! thanks!
