I'm having some recurring knee pain when I do hard intervals on the trainer. Anybody have a recommendation for a fitter in or around Maryland? All-American in Damascus and Lutherville Bike Shop north of Baltimore do the Serotta system, which I've heard is good. Any preference?

Also, can anybody recommend a sports doc with cycling experience?

Capitol Hill bikes /DC does body laser scanning - but probably more for finding correct bike geometry.

I have had good experiences with Brian Krabak, who is with Johns Hopkins Sports Medicine. The first time that I went to Dr. Krabak, I was having knee problems -- I brought my bike and indoor trainer; he examined me while I was pedaling on the bike. It sometimes is hard to get an appointment with him, but if you are not in extreme distress, it is worth it.

The Bicycle Place on Grubb Rd in Silver Spring does good fitting. They do a lot of custom bikes and are very knowledgeable about that sort of thing.

For Sport docs - Dr. Daniel Pereles (said: Peer-less) at Montgomery Orthopaedics in Kensington will be fixing my husband's knee (torn meniscus) soon and had done a lot of work on cyclists. He came highly recommended.

Good luck!

I'll second that opinion

Dr. Pereles has treated me for a dislocated shoulder. Twice. Ouch. I highly recommend him. Good bedside manner as well.
