Follow Up: Pain behind my right kneeBQ

Based on your advice, I did the following:

- Added more hamstring stretches to the program.
- Lowered the saddle a bit, moved it back a bit.
- Made a minor tweak to my shoe alignment on the pedals.

Went out for a quick 20 miler to see how it felt... and I felt NO PAIN. I did keep sliding off the nose of the saddle -- it needs a minor adjustment -- but my knee felt great! After about 10 miles, I started pushing harder -- still NO PAIN! I'll know more tomorrow when I do a 30 miler, but I'm optimistic that this one is history.

My thanks to LC, jschrotz, Jiggy, Mabero, Lone Gunman, Tsculler and Kevin MD for your excellent advice. I was beginning to fear that my 2K bike was going to become a wall ornament. But (queue the music) I'm back in the saddle again...

Your welcome. It still amazes me how much difference a few millimeters can make. I have 5 bikes, and you can imagine how much playing around with the setup takes to get all 5 perfect! Just remember to take it easy till your completly healed.

It's amazing how a little can be sooooo much when it comes to biking...just remember to not kill that knee and let it heal while you are adjusting to the new adjustments...

Later.

Bike Happy.
