On Thursday, March 14th, VeloConcepts owner Joe Coppola will present an essential Bike Fit & Cycling Analysis workshop. This workshop…
With the computer controlled fit unit we can quickly and dynamically change your fit as you ride. Want a 5mm lower saddle? How about a 10mm longer stem? Those changes are made via the computer controlled fit bike through its use of small motors that actively raise/lower and lengthen/shorten the touch points. These changes allow us to monitor your fit in real time and provides immediate feedback. Once dialed in we can then use “saved” fits to easily switch back and forth between “fits”.
The DFU is also paired with a smart trainer which applies a consistent resistance and allows us to monitor your effort via heart rate and pedal cadence. This allows us a fit that not only improves comfort on the bike but power output as well.
The gebioMized pressure mapping is part of our next level of analysis services. This diagnostic tool does much more than map saddle pressure, it is our window into your fit on the bike. Through use of this tool the fit professional receives an unprecedented amount of information on the complete interaction between the cyclist and the bicycle. Pressure analysis can assist with resolving saddle pain, low back pain, hand discomfort and many other fit related problems.
By analyzing a cyclists pressure "profile" the fitter can determine where you sit on the bike and make adjustments to your position, by moving you over the bike or the saddle underneath you. The result is a purely custom fit with a tool that provides quantitative feedback.
Our fit center uses the latest fitting tools to achieve an optimal fit. But how do you quantify those measurements? The answer is motion capture. The combination of high-quality motion capture systems with a good fit bike is where the magic really happens. Now the rider can be moving under real-world resistance levels and the effect of the effort on the position can be accurately measured.
Our motion capture system leverages a high speed 4K UHD camera and the software allows measurement tools to be overlaid on the videos to quantify motion. Videos can be taken from any angle, so assessment from the front, back, top and side of rider can be made simply by moving the camera.
