Aero position problems: Knee pain, Power from the glutes
I'm trying to troubleshoot 2 main problems with my aero position. I've followed the Slowtwitch positioning articles as best I could. But once I rotate my body forward and down, I have 2 problems:
1. Pain in the patella. Saddle height is fine, 155 degree bend at the knee. So the reason I have this pain is mind boggling. I'm using the following rationale: Multiple internet sources telling me knee can be 2-5cm forward of pedal spindle at 3 o clock. So because we're rotating the entire body around the BB, the associated knee pain from ignoring KOPS is negated, right? So why's it hurt in the front of my knees?
2. I have completely decreased power coming from my glutes. Seems like all my power is coming from my quads instead. Shouldn't i be using the glutes (larger, stronger muscle)? If I move back on the saddle to isolate the glutes, then to keep my hip angle correct I must sit up more and lose aero positioning, or I will decrease the hip angle, robbing more power. What should I do?
