Cycling is a repetitive activity that places tremendous demand on the body. Poor conditioning, technique, training errors, and the smallest misalignment—whether anatomic or equipment-related—can lead to dysfunction, impaired performance, and injury.
The key to a proper bike fit lies in finding one’s optimal cycling posture and position. Fitting a bike so that it is comfortable, reduces the risk of injury, and maximizes factors such as efficiency, power, and aerodynamics can be a real challenge.
Numerous bike fit programs are available; however, few consider the cyclist’s individual needs. Because each person’s optimal riding position and bike specification are unique, it takes interaction between the cyclist and a trained professional to find the optimal bike fit. Furthermore, how you sit in the saddle when cycling under load is very different from how you sit when stationary, so a true bike fit must be dynamic and should be assessed in “real time” while you cycle.
SSPT offers a unique dynamic bike fit that addresses all aspects of the bike fit in a five-step process:
Bike fitting should be an ongoing process because, as you train, your body will adapt and you may find that your “perfect position” changes from year to year.
“The fit was perfect. I rode 20 miles on Friday and 70 today. I basically was flying and averaged 2 miles more than I normally do on the course. I felt really good.”
-- E. Guzman
“Sports and Spinal is a great find. It was exciting to see my teammates--people who ride hard every day--act like little kids talking about how great their bikes now feel. But it was especially gratifying to know that my fit also was designed precisely for me.”
-- T. Jawetz
