- My knees really ache, why?

Give knee strength. What did you expect to happen when you went from not riding much at all to riding every day in a step change? Weak VMO muscle and poor patellar tracking is a probable cause. Do something that will strengthen VMO and it’ll go away. Look it up and you’ll find hunners to fix itPosted 7 years agoB.A.NanaMember
Not something I’ve had a problem with, but a friend was having similar issues on his road bike. Having lots of money, he paid to have his bike set up professionally for him and it sorted out all his issues. So, I guess it’s worth experimenting with your position, saddle height, pitch and moving it backwards/forwards.Posted 7 years ago
I would stick with flat pedals for now and try playing with adjusting your position over the pedals.TreksterSubscriber
similar problem last week excerbated by trying to play squash again 🙄 Doc confirmed I am too old to start that again after a 4yr lay-off and 25yrs playing taking it`s toll 😯Posted 7 years ago
He prescribed squats to strengthen quads, being local football teams doc I shall heed his advice 💡
I’ve been riding to work and back a lot as the weathers so good, also still putting in the offroad adventures every other weekend. Going great guns with my fitness but my knees really hurt of an evening, I mean they burn!
Whats going on? They cant be shot it can they? I’m ‘only’ 40!
I dont want to stop the commuting, is there anything I can do to help?
thanks guysPosted 7 years ago
