When my wife gets done with a long ride she finds that her right oblique hurts, while her left does not. Does anyone know a possible cause of this, like improper form or saddle fit?

  • I'd suspect that her "reach" distance is not right, maybe exacerbated by some slight scoliosis. Nobody's perfectly symmetrical. Commented May 4, 2012 at 0:18

Could be a number of things:

  • Saddle/cleat/handle bar misalignment
  • bad form on her right side, not spinning circles, etc

Have you ridden with her and checked out her form? Is she favoring one side over the other?
