Ankle Pain(2 posts)

Ankle PainHorace
Sep 20, 2001 7:25 AM
After the 50-60 mile mark (never before), the oustide of my ankle and the top of my foot become sore--not enough to stop riding, but enough to be very uncomfortable for the remainder of the ride and the next day. After that, it usually goes away until my next long ride. Any suggestions/prior experience with a similar pain? I plan on first lowering the seat slightly and, if this doesn't work, maybe taking a closer look at cleat placement. Its almost as if I have too much float and the placement of my ankle on the downstroke is not correct (I use standard Look red cleats). Any input/advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Right now. My ankle is stiff, right side. It almost feels like a good crack would make it feel better. I experience this on occassion. No real rhyme or reason. I'm 42 and have sort of chalked it up to maybe a little arthritis although it's very sporadic. This is probably the first time this year. Come to think of it there's a big storm comming our way, I wonder if that has something to do with it.
