Bike Fitting

Ok, so I have been riding for a while now, and decided that a fitting from the LBS would be a good idea since I felt like I was losing a lot of energy from poor positioning.

As it turns out, I was correct. Almost everything was positioned incorrectly. Need a new handlebar and stem, and seat was set too far forward.

Only thing that we could not resolve from the fitting is my peddling action. My knees are working their way outward on the upstroke part of the pedaling action. I tried adjusting the cleats on the shoes so that I was pigeon toed to get my knees to stay straight, but it doesn't really help.

How do I get a nice straight piston motion in my legs?

Thanks for the words of wisdom....
