Evidence-Based Bike Fit and Cycling Analysis

Gone are the days of getting a standard bike fit involving plumb bobs and goniometers. Today, we have more reliable, accurate, and scientific technology to get a cyclist in a more efficient and sustainable position. Combine the recent advancements in technology and our experience and research in sports medicine, we have the unique ability to understand the bike and the cyclist’s body (from a stability, mobility, biomechanical, and physiological perspective) and how they can best co-exist out on the road or dirt.

MORE COMFORT » MORE EFFICIENCY » MORE POWER

Every bike fit includes:

Saddle Pressure Sensors during a bike

  • Body evaluation including flexibility, stability, leg length, and alignment as it relates to cycling.
  • Pedal forces, stroke, and power analysis using our Pro Analysis technology
  • Saddle and Foot Pressure sensor data
  • Saddle Testing (bring some of your own or test what we have in stock)
  • Orthotic evaluation/testing
  • Shim/Wedge testing
  • Changes to bike fit
  • Exercises (in video format!) to correct dysfunction and become more efficient and powerful
  • Fit Sheet
  • All test results, exercises and fit changes explained

INFORMATION IS NOT KNOWLEDGE

No fit system here.

Bike fitting is part ART, part SCIENCE, and part EXPERIENCE. While there are many bike fitting schools out there, we don’t limit ourselves by subscribing to just one way of fitting. Our bike fits are based on biofeedback. In other words, we use advanced, state-of-the-art technology and our medical experience to find the best fit based on YOUR anatomy, pedal stroke, alignment, previous injuries (probably most important), core strength, stability, and flexibility. Having years of physical medicine experience, we have learned early on that we must test each change we make. We carry that over to our fits. Each fit change gets tested by science, not by a guess.

What you won’t get

  • A systemized approach to your fit that is the same for everyone else
  • Fit solely based on lines, angles, and numbers dictated by non-medical bike manufacturers that is supposed to work for everyone
  • A fitter who doesn’t know anatomy and physiology
  • A fit based on non-scientific data
  • A fit without biofeedback
