    Sore Knees

    Been noticing my 54 year old, beat up, patched -up knees have been sore lately. I've been commuting 18+ miles one way on a Surly Straggler. I figured I was pushing bigger gears and a loaded bike. I was using my Shimano MTB pedals. I'm thinking my knees don't like the lack of float spinning down the gravel paths. I have Speedplays on my road bike with out issues. Thinking about either the Speedplay Frogs or Crank Bros Candys.

    Had a fit done when I picked the bike up a few weeks ago. Same person who fit me on the road bike.

    Do a follow up with them. There are a lot of things that they should be able to do

    Are you stretching adequately after riding? Tight hamstrings lead to all sorts of issues with lower back and knees.
