Most cyclists wait to get a bike fit until they have extreme knee, neck, hips, shoulder, lower back pain or saddle discomfort. With a poor bike fit (or lack of), it is common to see both hands and feet going numb as well.
Good news is you don’t need to wait until you are in so much pain that you are ready to give up cycling. Get a bike fit now! A bike fit is the first step to pain-free cycling. So, skip that massage and contact us at Bike Fitness Coaching for a comprehensive bike fit!
Bike Sizing vs. Bike Fitting – Bike Fitness Coaching lives by the motto “Get a Bike Sizing First.” Once sized, you can purchase your new bike with confidence that it is the right size bike for you. Then, once you get your beautiful new bicycle, set up a bike fitting appointment with Bike Fitness Coaching and let us do the rest.
There are three components to cycling, (a) comfort, (b) aerodynamics and (c) power. Our philosophy parallels GURU’s where COMFORT is the most important fit factor. Why? Because if you are not comfortable, you cannot output as much power nor can you stay aero for long. We concentrate on comfort for ALL of our bike fitting clients.
Bike fitting machines? We have 3 bike fitting/bike sizing machines and, based on your needs, we will help you choose the best option that will give you the perfect fit. We follow IBFI – International Bike Fitting Institute, GURU’s Range Of Right, Trek’s Precision Fit and the Medicine Of Cycling (MOC) methodologies, and we are fully certified in these as well.
1. The GURU DFU (Dynamic Fit Unit) is, as the name implies, a technology based on providing a “dynamic bike fit” where angles, power and comfort are evaluated in real-time as you pedal under a load.
2. We also have a hybrid “dynamic-static” fit system comprised of a Computrainer and your bicycle. Your power output is measured under load as well as your lower body and upper body angles.
3. Our Serotta Size Cycle provides you with pre-bike purchase information to assure that you have correct and complete information before making your purchase of your new right-sized bicycle.
Bike Fitness Coaching’s philosophy is to provide YOU with the best bike-fit possible so that you will be more comfortable and enjoy your time on the bicycle to the fullest.
