QUESTION:

During my first ride of the year on an indoor mag trainer, I developed some pretty serious knee pain, only on my right knee - just about where your quad attaches to the insde of your knee (forgive my lack of medical terminology. It started out fairly dull, but has progressed to a sharp pain after several more trainer rides. I spent most of the last year running, but bought a Cannondale R700 several months ago and began riding quite a bit. I never noticed this pain on the road. Any tips? Could it be the fit of my bike? Could I be taking an irregular pedal stroke on the trainer? Help!!
