Bike Fit Process
1. Rider Preparation
For best results, the rider should wear classic cycling kit - including lycra shorts and a short sleeved or sleeveless top.
2. Rider Consultation
Bike fitting is a very personal process and requires in-depth understanding of your cycling goals, experience and unique physical characteristics This includes any bio-mechanical restrictions or injuries. The rider consultation ensures this information is captured to best inform the fit process to follow.
3. Physical Assessment
Every rider has different physiological characteristics which effect their contact points (bars, saddle, and pedals) and the position which they are able to achieve. The physical assessments allow identification of the limitations of the rider, together with the appropriate support required to establish bio-mechanical stability on the bike.
All fit services include cleat positioning, and sit bone, pelvic rotation & spinal flexibility assessment for saddle selection, and foot structure assessment for determining required support. BG and BG with Retül fittings provide additional anatomical assessments, for example leg length discrepancy.
4. Rider Fitting
The rider mounts the bike, fixed in a turbo trainer. For BG with Retül only, the dual harness of LED markers are placed at eight anatomical points on the rider's body. Adjustments to the bike are then made to optimise the fit. As well as positional changes to the bike, components may also be swapped at this point from the wide range of stock including saddles, stems, bars and shoe support inserts.
Upon completion, all bike position measurements are recorded. For BG with Retül only, the bike is 'Zinned' using Retül's handheld digitizer the 'Zin' tool. This creates a millimetre accurate digital map of the complete bike including all the contact points. From this a rider file is created including your personal profile, consultation notes, physical assessment, bike measurements and your final fit position. This is then stored on the Velocita Coaching server for future comparison and a report emailed to you.
5. Follow Up
You will receive a scheduled follow-up to review your adaptation to the new position, answer your questions, and provide guidance on how to get the most out of your ride.
