    clipless pedal knee pain Qs

    After 2 or so hours my toes would go numb on one foot. I had read somewhere that this was a cleat adjustment issue and to move the cleat all the way back. Well my knee which has never had pain started hurting on the side closest to the bike. Mid- ride I couldn't take it any more and adjusted the cleat forward a bit. The pain was less but aggrevating. What should I do deal with numb toes. The pedals have plenty of float they're crank bros.

    This could be anything from fore/aft positioning (as said), toe-in versus toe-out, saddle position, seatpost height... there's so many variables.

    Hell, even using the wrong cleats in the wrong pedals can mean a difference of 1.5cm in cleat position (which I found out the hard way when I switched from Shimano to XPedo pedals but kept the Shimano cleats).

    I went for a 20 mile ride this last sunday. I had similer problems except my knee swelled up overnight to the size of a cantalope. Doc said miniscus pinch, luckly he is a cyclist his sugestion is to move up the seat height and move the seat back a little to take pressure off the knee. Hard leson learned.
