I took advantage of the good weather today for a couple of hour spin on the CdF. Right knee was aching slightly shortly after I set off, but I thought I could 'ride it off'. At my furthest point from home (13 miles) I decided that that was a bad idea and limped home - if you can limp on a bike! It also played me up a couple of weeks ago when I took the CDF off road, but I thought I might have pulled it in one of my manic 'get out of the clips before I topple over moments'. It's a bit sore now, but by tomorrow I reckon I won't feel it.
Question is, is it somehow how I'm positioned on the bike - but if so, why is only one knee? Or is it more likely that i twisted it the other week and I only riding aggravates it? How much difference (if any) does moving the cleats slightly make. I'm using shimano mtb shoes and M324 pedals, but this is the first bike I've ever had where I have to clip in.
For what it's worth, I didn't have much of a bike fit when I picked the bike up last year from the lbs (my fault, busy saturday - wrong day to buy a bike). Is it worth going back to the lbs for some help, or should I see if a couple of weeks rest sorts it out?
Any help appreciated - chers !
