Re: Professional bike fit, recommendations?
Several years ago a group from Innersport (https://innersport.com/ - from Oakland/El Cerrito) did a presentation of their bike fitting technology at a club meeting. A couple folks from our club used their bike fitting services.
Dr Jess ( Dr Jessica Greaux) at Innersport does the fittings. I went to her for a fitting and it made a huge difference for me – I was having knee problems as well. I was very happy with the entire process and everything I learned going thru it.
Dr Jess is a Chiropractic Doctor and has won a lot of recognition as a sports doctor (https://innersport.com/about/dr-greaux). She treats high level athletes as well as cruisers like myself. Check out the webpage for her qualifications and how she approaches bike fitting. Pre-pandemic, her sessions were at her house in El Cerrito, not at the Oakland facility.
Good luck, whoever you choose.

Can anyone suggest an expert bike fitter? Someone who has background knowledge of physical therapy or kinesiology.
I bought my first road bike just a few years ago, had the bike fit where they focused on knee angle. I didn't have any problems with pain, maybe because of all traffic lights I was moving all the time.
Life changes and now I do rides indoors on my smart trainer 2x/week sometimes 3. I had inner knee pain/discomfort with my left knee, kept going and it got worse then my right knee was sore. I stopped, rested, ice etc, etc I took off my SPD and put on flat pedals. I was hit n miss riding, mostly missing. With Primavera coming I started riding indoors again regularly and inner left knee pain is back. So, clipped or flats I'm having the same problem and need this fixed asap. If you know of a professional bike fitter (not a company trained one) please let me know.
