BIKE FITTING


A properly fit bicycle is a critical component of performance cycling. Problems with comfort and power delivery can be resolved with improved position on the bike.

Most bike fitting focuses on adapting the bicycle to fit the riders body. The flaw with this approach is that an active cyclists body is not static. As fitness levels change and as the body becomes more or less flexible, the bike position for optimal power transmission and comfort also changes. Ideal bike fit is an ongoing process.

Our 3-hour bike fit is comprised of several components: 
- integrating knowledge from FMS (Functional Movement Screen)
- Dartfish technology aids in pedal-stroke analysis to assist riders to pedal more efficiently
- postural analysis combined with years of coaching experience helps riders to sit properly
- utilise the Wobblenaught measurement system

Bike fit sessions begin with a functional Movement Screen. This provides information about the rider's body in terms of strength and flexibility. This informs the actual fitting of the bike to the rider. The FMS may also suggest possible improvements in position attainable through stretching, mobility and strength exercises.

Every bike fit includes a 1-hour follow up session to make adjustments based on changes in the riders position due to improved fitness, and/or increased mobility.

I initially went to Steve because I wanted a bike fit for my time-trial bike. I received my bike fit - and a whole lot more. By the time that we were finished I also had a much better way of pedalling as well as a structural assessment of my body and a way to correct some of the imbalances that I had.

In the past couple of months I have seen a huge improvement in my speed on the bike, my power and my endurance. I feel much more comfortable in my racing position and my legs have never felt stronger.

The biggest improvement has been in my structural imbalances in my legs and hips. The exercises that Steve gave to me have helped me to re-balance my body and I am pain free in my right leg for the first time in years.

I have invested a lot in my riding and racing over the past few years but this may be the best investment that I have made. If you are looking to become a better rider, no matter what the discipline, I highly recommend that you make an appointment for an assessment with Steve Neal.
