I ride with a local club, do all the training rides, a little TT., and touring.
How important is it to have your knee over the pedal axle?
Can it be in front or behind. I have been told that; if the lower part of your leg is shorter than the upper part then you need to put your knee either in front or behind, the opposit is true!
If this is so, how do you measure your leg and how far in front or behind the axle should you be? Please no medical info just plain English that anyone can understand.
Also if your cleat is not 100% right on this will effect your knee over the pedal axle too!!!!
Has anyone got some good advice on this matter? Thanks
