she has tried everything, Physio, bike fits, saddles - everything really
A Physio has suggested she may have something called Iliac arterial compression, which if treatable would involve surgery.
Has anyone one on here got any experience of this? or better stil, some non surgical treatments or sugestions?
since posting she has had a doppler scan which showed no blood flow issues, so she has to have some more tests b4 and after exercise.
Position wise, fitted some 165mm cranks (slight raise in saddle) to open up the hip angle and possibly a 10mm shorter stem, other than that..new girl friend

Let’s hope your girlfriend doesn’t read that comment or it might be you getting replaced
My girlfriend suffered from a dead leg & numbness and saw a physio & doc about it... doppler revealed no circulation issues. Physio talked through her cycling history and they managed to pinpoint the problem started not long after she changed bikes from a woman road bike to a man's bike. Being sceptical I thought women specific gear was a load of nonsense; a sales pitch to get us to buy more stuff. However, she has since gone back to a women's road bike and her problem has improved. Maybe there is something in this different anatomy stuff.
