Did they shim your cleat to help even out the leg length discrepency? Do you think that maybe a small insole in your right running shoe might help?

Leg length discrepency can certainly cause IT band issues while cycling and running!

Ah hell...... Yeah, in an attempt to get a linear vertical pedal motion. Suppose I should move it back.

It's worth a shot. Your cycling form likely has adjusted to the discrepency, and now that you're even, you're uneven!

I'd get in touch with the fitter and explain the problem. I'm not really sure if you can tough it out for a bit and regain a more balanced position, or if you're better off sticking with what doesn't irritate the IT band.

Beer, couch and football would just be so much easier! And less painful....

Thanks for all the input though. I just emailed the guy who did my fit for his thoughts on my little predicament.
