Bike Fits: A Tale of Two Shops

All bike fits are not created equal.

Every shop offers bicycle fitting on its list of services. Fitting certifications usually requires less than a week’s worth of training, training that allows someone to hang a “Certified Fitter” shingle on their wall.

They’re not a dime a dozen, but anyone that works at a bike shop can attain one.

But, bike shops with employees that have in-depth education, substantial experience, and real-working knowledge to provide high-quality fits, those are few and far between.

Don’t Settle for Half a Bike Fit

Are you only getting half the picture with your bike fit? Just about every motion capture system used for bike fits only captures half of your body at a time which is why, when we went looking for a new motion capture system, we wanted a full-body, bi-lateral, three-dimensional system. After extensive research and testing, we selected the gold standard in human motion capture, STT Systems 3DMA. Read more

The World's Most Advanced Fit

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 lab uses the latest fitting tools to achieve an optimal fit. But how do you quantify those measurements? The answer is three-dimensional motion capture. Riders are outfitted with 20 reflective dots where 8 high speed motion capture cameras record riders in real time, under real-world resistance levels.

Since captures are bi-lateral and full-body the 3DMA system allows the fitter to perform a full 360 degree evaluation and provides tracking data and automatic analysis on every joint at the same time. And is the only system that allow for pelvis, back & knee tracking simultaneously. With the 3DMA system motion data is recorded at 100 fps (frames per second) – 5 times more precise than the Retül bike fit system.
