    Me left knee hurts when i push on the pedals. at the front just behind the knee cap. OK walking and Ok when i pull up on the pedals (spds fitted)

    I haven’t altered the bike set up in any way since i set it up about three years ago

    Any ideas?

    You’re getting old – deal with it 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

    bit of loose cartilage perhaps ?

    Happens with me a lot – it goes away in time

    You have been overdoing it of late with those speedy tyres

    try to favour the other leg 😉

    Hate to say it, but Threevok might be right. Wear & tear doesn’t happen to the bike alone. all the accessories get wear over time.

    Good news is… It’s better than sitting in a room rusting away & if it continues to bother you, then the doc should be able to fix it. 🙂

    I was diagnosed with Arthritis in my knees at the age of nine – which was hard back then as they didn’t even believe you could have it at that age.

    I find that it’s worse if I DON’T go out on the bike regularly.

    Over the years, it has spread to other areas. That, plus the fact my spine is crumbling, means I get out as much as I can, while I still can.

    Suggest you ALL do the same 8)

    This is where we can all benefit from ebikes, when the body starts to hold us back, sounds like they can be a new lease of life.

    Go to doctors if the pain persists and setup your bike again to fit you from scratch.

    Bloody things.

    I spent a week trying to catch a bloke, I saw each day in front of me, on the final climb of my commute – only to find he had one of those infernal monsters !!!

    It’s gone back into place – it may come out again

    If the problem persists, your doctor may refer you to have it “scraped”.

    A common op – especially amongst old rugby players.

    Not had it done myself, but I still fit on down the club as I have the same scar from when I had the Titanium nail put in 😆
