    Update on my foot pain/calf pain...
    On a previous thread I brought up a left and right lateral foot pain and right calf pain I've dealt with for 2 years.

    So, I replaced my shoes' liners with the specialized footbeds and shims ( I got the green set which are for high arched people). I placed the full 3mm of shims in each shoe, thick side at the medial side.

    Last couple of climbing rides, I have had no foot pain. The calf pain is less but still present. This may be due to my saddle position as some of you mentioned. I may move the saddle forward a bit as I've got it pushed all the way back to accomodate my slow climbing cadence.

    If the pains return or do not resolve completely, I may look for a sports med specialist. Anyone have a recommendation for one in Portland?


    Thanks!

    Glad to hear that things are being sorted out. Definitely check saddle position, in particular make sure it is straight and not slight pointing to either direction.

    Good to hear! I'm glad you are working it out on your own, I don't think I would have gone 2 years though without getting it looked at.
