Got Knee Pain?Posted by: RL Policar | Posted on: January 6, 2013
Are you experiencing knee pain in these spots?
Here’s what works for me. If I have pain in the front of my knee, that means my saddle is to low. I’m basically putting too much force on it to push my pedals. But if the pain is in the back of my knee, that means my joint is being hyper-extended. So what’s the solution? Adjust my saddle height!
Basic rule of thumb that I follow for saddle height, if I’m sitting on my bike and one foot is on the 6 o’clock position, then my leg should be slightly bent at the knee. It really comes down to your personal preference. But you could get professionally fitted for your bike at some local bike shops. Call around to see if the shops in your area offer that service.
