So I've been riding the bike for over a year now, about seven months ago I was doing upwards of 300 miles or 20+ hours a week and was having no problems at all with my knees, if I felt a bit of tendonitis comming on I would take 2 days off and that would be the end of it. After about 4 months of training I went back to the UK for a couple of months and wasnt doing much at all training wise.
But recently I bought a new pair of shoes ( Bont Vaypors ), and new shoe plates. Now I've never fit my own shoe plates but I do know how the whole process works and knew what angle I want my feet at. There is also a diagram on the bottom of the Bonts which help, but they dont seem to sit the same when out on the bike for some reason.
I was riding them for about two weeks before the tendonitis came on, since then I've had about two and a half weeks off, which does include the odd ride to see if I have shaken it, but it won't go this time.
( Note : These rides have been medium to hard-ish rides ).
Question is, should I take another week or so completely off the bike this time, and should I start to adjust the soul plates?
Quite concerned as my brother has big issues with his knees which ended his career.
