    I cannot believe how much good I have got from these podcasts! They have changed how i bike! When I saw the title of this podcast I thought I would never touch my fit on my road and tri bikes. I have spent too much time and money getting them right. But during this podcast knee pain was discussed cause by bad or poorly adjusted shoe clips. I got to thinking that I seem to get knee pain after occasionally riding my mountain bike or my indoor spinning bike. I use different clips and shoes for spinning and mountain biking as I do on the road. Never had those shoes set since I purchased them and the dealer set them. And after listening to this podcast I check them and found they were not only worn out, they were set totally wrong for my feet! Now they are right and my occasional knee pain is gone! Thanks guys!
