bike-to-run: knee feels like falling off...?curtybirdychopper

after my last few strenuous bike rides, as I start out on the run, my right knee feels like it could fly off as I stride out. It is the inside of my knee that feels week. there is no pain as i land, just a week feeling and dull pain from what i think is one of the interior ligaments. the good news is that it gets better over time in the run.

i am wondering if my bike pedals/cleats are set up incorrectly. i'm using speedplay Xs. anyone with similar experience?

thanks, curtis

Is your seat too low? Too high? Are your cleats aligned properly? Speedply is reputed to be easy on knees with all that float... are you floating around too much? Are you riding with a slow cadence (probably NOT good)?
