Do you ride a women specific bike? I never thought much of the idea until I developed some serious knee and IT band pain while training for a century on my first road bike. My knee was treated by a physical therapist as I continued to train. But by the end of the century, I was nearly limping I was in such a world of hurt.
I tried a women specific road bike and was blown away by how much of a difference the shorter top tube made. At that moment I was sold, and my knee pain is gone.
