knee pit pain

Hi all,

I decided to get back to spinning class yesterday. I used to go a few times a week, but work got crazy during the holidays... Anyway I had this awful pain in my left knee pit yesterday about halfway through the class. I hope its a matter of bad bike fit not a tendon tearing or something like that. I put the bike on the same settings as I usually do. I guess I have a two part question. What do you think the pain is from, and what do I need to do to make sure my spin bike is adjusted correctly? It's a revmaster if that makes any difference to all you knowledgeable spinners out there.

Others may have more detailed response, but when that happens to me, it is because my saddle is too high. Try dropping the seat height.

I agree with Thorn. I also wonder if you are spinning too fast. Some (many) spin instructors encourage wildly fast spinning and that's not good for knees. Neither is hovering, IMO. I hope you feel better soon!

I was wondering the same thing. Is it the back of the knee?
