Sore Knees

11 October 2018

 

Knees sore with riding?

One of the most common reasons we see people complaining about their knees when on the bike is that their saddle is not positioned correctly.  Ideally we'd like to be able to drop a vertical line (plumb bob) from the end of the thigh bone (not the kneecap, just behind it) and it should bisect the pedal axle when it's forward and horizontal (and your pedal is sitting horizontal also).

In this position we'll get our quads and hamstrings working relatively evenly.  If there's an imbalance (and most commonly saddles are too far forward) we'll often see front of the knee pain develop as a result.  If you've got knee pain, lean your bike up against a wall or on a trainer and see where yours sits.
