Spring Race Season Successes

Two of our customers have been reaping the benefits of a long hard winter of training. Each has had wins in their spring triathlon campaigns. Local favorite Dave Stubbs turned in an impressive win at Rumpus in Bumpass Olympic distance triathlon and Sue DeJesus with an age group win in her FIRST full Ironman at Ironman Texas.

Triathlon Race Results

Dave Stubbs

Exactly a year prior to Dave’s win at Rumpus in Bumpass he was getting back on his bike after a horrific crash due to a wheel failure. But with perseverance and hard work, Dave eased his way back into winning form. Dave is one of those athletes that has a huge engine but with a focused training, consistent training plan his hard work pays HUGE dividends.

As one of our elite fitting customer we were even more excited to hear that he turned in the FASTEST bike split of the day!

I cannot imagine how much faster he will get as we make the final tweaks to his fit.

Sue DeJesus

If you have hung around the shop at all over the last year and a half, you’ve probably run into VeloConcepts customer and Shop Ambassador Sue DeJesus. While being famous in her own right for being ranked number 1 in the world for her age group, her success only comes with extensive hard work & dedication. I have witnessed that first hand as I’ve marveled at her 3+ hour rides on the trainer as she prepared for her first full-length IRONMAN

Her hard work definitely paid off as she came away came away with a super impressive age group WIN at IRONMAN Texas.

This win netted Sue a coveted qualifying spot in the IRONMAN World Championship race in Kona. Be sure to read more about Sue’s race in her always inspiring race recap report.

And if you want to help Sue achieve her claim a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in Kona be sure to support her via a GoFundMe campaign.

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 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.
