I know that there are articles everywhere on the issue of knee pain in cycling... And I've read most of them by now. I thought I would post here to see if anyone could help me possibly understand and figure out my knee pain and help me bike again
I have been biking all summer stronger than ever.. Have funny knees, but they felt pretty good all summer. I moved from Michigan to Utah last month and since the move nothing has gone right... Haven't been able to bike without knee pain whatsoever. There is one main factor that could be the culprit but I can't seem to understand fully. The last year I was riding the Sette Enduro shoes with SPD clipless:

The enduro's were good shoes but were kinda heavy and weren't super stiff so I thought about getting something different. My friend happened to have a pair of generic stiff soled MTB shoes (Northwaves to be particular) that he gave me for free right before I left for Utah. They fit great so I took em out here and gave my enduros to someone cause I had enough stuff to move.. (bad decision) So since I've been out here I've had issues with my right knee hurting... I've played with cleat position and bike fit with no change.. It's not a sharp pain, more of a discomfort that builds the more I ride, deep in the medial side of the knee. In the joint. I've gone to my new doctor, and he seems to think that something in my knee might be off so I'm seeing an orthopaedist next week as well.
Now my question!! :
Could the new shoe simply be the issue? Would you suggest buying my old shoes again and seeing if that fixes it? Or buy a different stiff soled shoe? Orrrrrrr pay $150 to the shop and get a BG fit for my riding.
Hope that made sense.. I tried to condense it. Thanks so much for help!
