Hips rocking | Street Bike, Biking Boards

Is that this a nasty factor? Considered one of my biking associates commented a few month in the past that my hips rocked loads after I was pedaling. One other buddy confirmed his commentary, in order that go me considering that maybe my saddle was too excessive. I’ve used the identical saddle top for years with no obvious issues, and I trip loads of miles (common 600/month 12 months spherical).

So I made a decision to experiment and lowered the saddles on my 3 street bikes about 5 mm. Quick ahead 4 weeks. My climbing has sucked ever since I moved my saddles decrease. At first I believed it was only a matter of getting used to the brand new top, however now I do not assume so. Even worse, my left knee began aching about 2 weeks in the past. I initially blamed it on driving my single-speed one morning when the temps have been relatively cool and never warming up sufficient earlier than pushing it on the hills. This weekend, I had a “duh second” and at last realized that my knee began hurting after I had lowered my saddle.

So, I ask the jury, does it matter if my hips rock after I pedal? If that’s the case, then why is my climbing higher with a better saddle? Is it only a coincidence that my knee began hurting or did the decrease saddle trigger the issue?
