Excruciating inner thigh pain -- and solution!
I went on a metric century group ride day. I pulled into my first rest stop @ about 28 miles with a pain at the very top inside of my left thigh. It was a bad stabbing pain while riding, but far worse when I got off the bike -- I could hardly walk and I was fighting back tears. I did some stretches that helped only slightly. Not knowing anything else to do, I checked my seat and the nose was EVER SO SLIGHTLY pointed to the right. I'm talking maybe 2* where I had to close one eye and very carefully sight along the bike to even see it. Well, I nudged it perfectly parallel to the top bar and the pain subsided in two miles and didn't come back during the next 35.
I have a new-found respect for the quest for symmetry.
