Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

if you've been riding for very long with your bike the way it was pictured in the other thread.. it could be pretty easy to just jack up the seatpost and not be putting such a stress on your knee.

I'm not convinced his seat is too low.

Watch some snippets of pro races. They have a pretty good bend in the knee at the bottom of the stroke.

perhaps not. that is why fitting online is a rough guess at best.

I'm not a believer in supplements and other magic potions that don't need to be tested or approved by anyone though
