hi, i just switched to a fixed gear riding 48 x 16 about a week ago and have been noticing knee pain. looking for input on how to treat/avoid knee pain, i suppose. thanks.
Maybe a result of all the sudden pedal mashing?
Try an easier ratio.
just another gosling
Dude! This is the funniest post I've seen in a long time. Yah, see I've been pounding my thumb with this hammer and now it hurts. How can I stop the pain?
#1, put that sucker away and ride a geared bike until you are slaughtering the competition on the LBS group ride. Then you can go to the fixie to stick the shiv further in.
#2, if you don't have a geared bike, change to a 67" gear instead of running that 81". 42 X 17 is the usual. The supposed reason to ride SS or FG is to improve your spin.
#3. Stop complaining about the pain.
