    Yea, that 30 day best thing is pretty lame, it's just way too short. Ideally it'd be configurable.

    That’s really reassuring. I have been known to act a bit eccentric so those leg squats should be a cinch :okay:

    Well after all this time of taking the p*** out of your knee I had better shut up.

    Been doing some work with a hip and knee msk consultant who is championing some fairly exciting work. Happy to pass his details on, PM me if of any help.

    Hi Ryan, thanks and I hope the inserts work for you. I have a leg discrepancy too but fortunately less than your 6mm! Custom insoles really worked for me stopped the knee tracking out so much especially under power. I reckon I have done all I can bike fit etc wise so time to work on the weaker supporting muscles and find a way around what is after all a common knee problem for aging cyclists. I think that is the thing that hurt the most when the consultants said that if I was in my 20’s even 30’s they would probably advise surgery but not at my age:laugh: buggers!

    Knackers yard Bob?

    It's not great news about your knee, but you probably already knew due to the length of time and without a permanent relief solution. All the best with rehabilitation mate

    Yeah, I did but was trying to ignore it.
    Thanks Andy. I am strangely optimistic.

    Good luck with the knee Bob. Injuries are so frustrating.

    I also got my rejection from RideLondon. I've done it 3 times so not too miffed. Makes me look for a suitable alternative :smile:

    So frustrating when body is in the way of the mind :sad:. Despite your long term knee problems, you seem to have managed to gain fitness anyway, and I bet you'll probably find a way to continue to do so.

    I noticed a strange thing when I rode a Zwift group ride the other day. When I stood up to stretch the legs, just for a second, I seeped down through the peleton very fast, and It was almost like I was already dropped. I had to work hard for a long time to stop the "seeping". I think that is what have got me dropped in the races so far.
    Are you guys experiencing the same?

    The only time I experienced something similar was in a fast ride where I had already begun to ease on the power and then reached for a drink and by time I got it to my lips, 2 seconds, I was out the back. Pace was probably 40kph plus.

    I've noticed on a long ride that I stopped pedalling for just a few seconds I went from the front of the peleton to near the back and had to work hard to regain my position. I think it's the draft affect, if you don't keep the power up, it drops you from the benefits. a bit like a flywheel, once upto speed it's easy to stay there but hard work if you let it drop in momentum.
