BICYCLE FITTING AERO / TRIATHLON / TT
BICYCLE FITTING AND SETUP
A correct fitting bicycle is essential for comfort, safety, injury prevention, & peak performance. We use the BikeFit system & tools to get you in the correct position. We use the CompuTrainer to assist in this process, with the added benefit of wattage, & pedal torque readings, like Spin Scan.
The usual BikeFit consists of:
- Static (measurements at rest)
- Dynamic (measurements while pedaling)
- Feet - (Shoes) - Pedals
- Pelvis - (Clothing) - Saddle
- Hands - (Gloves) - Bars
The first point of contact is between the Feet (Shoes) & Pedals. Cleat positioning, is the most important part of this step, with wedges & shims enabling the cycling shoe to connect with the pedal naturally.
The second point of contact is between the Pelvis (Clothing) & Saddle. The saddle position is probably the most important part of any BikeFit & can sometimes be the most troublesome.
The third point of contact is between the Hands (Gloves) & Handlebars. The position of the bars is probably the most personal in all of the BikeFit process, as there are so many variables to help deliver the best position for comfort & performance.
