I thought I'd post this here as well as in the Road forum.
Well I've searched all the posts from the last year on knee pain and I did not find the answer I was looking for, so as much as we all hate having this subject brought up yet again, here I go:
My right knee has been bothering me for the last couple of weeks. The location of the pain is on the inside of the knee and the upper part of the knee cap. It will hurt some while I'm riding, but it is really bad after I ride. It doesn't hurt at all when I walk, but when I first get up from a chair it will hurt. It also hurts to the touch, like a bruise, for a few days afterwards.
I have changed my saddle postion a little before the pain started (I moved the saddle forward so that my knee was more over the pedal spindal, it was way behind it). Also around this time the intensity of my training rides greatly increased and I've been in my big ring a lot more.
I keep my cadence between 90 and 110 rpms and I'm using speedplay pedals (X series, so full float).
Is it just my knee getting use to bigger gears again? Thanks for the help.
