See my extensive notes from a week ago in Bike Fit update.
After a week or so of riding:
- Power is at good levels.
- Knees and patella have some achiness but I deem this “adaptive discomfort”, a normal situation for changes to fit that stress the entire musculature differently; the internal pain has not manifested, a very hopeful sign. Patience for 6-8 weeks is required to “move through” such issues.
- The fit on the Look 595 Ultra seems just about perfect, but the fit on the Moots Vamoots RSL is just not quite right; the seat is not exactly the same and maybe the reach is too short— so I’m just going to ride the LOOK until the new SRM DuraAce crank comes in so I can be symmetric on the Moots setup also, then figure out if it is stem length or seat or whatever.
- All in all I feel hopeful that by riding as if it were January (steady aerobic mileage) that the kinks (knee issues) will work themselves out and I will end up better than ever!
