2 months ago I attached my look pedals to my road bike, I have had the bike around 8 months. I have also used the pedals on my previous bike which caused no issues. I now get the most intense pain in my right knee when at the top of a pedal stroke, I had to buy new cleats for my shoes but have no idea why/where this pain has come from. Any ideas or am I overlooking a simple fix?
Cheers

Could be the cleat position, try tweaking that a bit. Otherwise you might be like me and need to adjust your saddle position.

in my case, i had to move it back a bit. But try tweaking one thing at a time to see what works.

I had a knee op last October and to stop further problems i took my bike to one of the local shops, paid £60.00 and had it set up for me after i explained about the op.

My pedals and seat were all over the place prior to the set up. Worth every penny.

Mate I got a plastic knee and the other has a synthetic cartilage, have been cycling for years without to many issues using shimano spd pedals on road & mtb. Once I changed to Look pedals on road bikes I started getting footproblems. Went to the bike shop and got a proper set up done found my leg & feet positions were miles out of where they should be. Cleats were shifted back, realigned and one had extra packing inserted.
Back on the bike next day it made an immediate improvement, should have done it years ago.
