my knees hurt after I ride about 12 miles. My knees never hurt. I ride about 2,500 miles a year min. I bought 2 new bikes this fall. One mt bike and one fitness bike. The mt. bike does not hurt The fitness bike does. It’s a trek 7.4 FX with disk.
We have done everything there is to do as far as fitting me to the bike. We are going to put an adjustable stem on it next. But here is something to think about.It only hurts my left knee most of the time.And it only hurts around the knee joint not in the knee or knee cap. It is very mild.And only hurts after a bike ride.
I had a bad sprained ankle 3rd degree on the right foot. I tore something in there.It’s been 2 months and biking don’t hurt it. but I am wondering if I am not putting more pressure on the left leg to compensate for something that I can’t feel. Really it does not hurt my ankl;e at all.Eventhough I am not 100 % I can ride. Why is my knee hurting around the knee and on top where the tendon incerts at.It has never done this before.
There’s alsomthing I might want to add. Trek goes from 17.5 to 20.0 in sizes nithing in between which leaves ahuge gap in between. I normally take a 17.5. Is this the bike doing this. It’s mighty funny my other bikes don’t do it.
I really like this bike.Please give me some in put on whats going on ok.Thanks.
