Bicycle Fit

The Dynamic Fit Process– Our fit process has been refined through sixteen years of fitting experience by master fitter John R Huenink.  The best description of the Dynamic Fit Process is a holistic approach to gathering information based on personal history, riding history, and goals.    Information gathered coupled with years of fitting knowledge ensure a scientific approach to improving the overall cycling experience.

  • Information gathering-Known information is compiled to understand the clients posture, position, and performance.  Identifying the clients physical attributes, the fit technician has a systematic approach to making the proper adjustments to support the body.

o   Initial interview and warm up-Evaluation of the clients medical history, riding history, and goals.

o   Video analysis-Understanding the clients current riding position.  By dissecting each element of the current riding position, the fit technician creates a road map to an end result; Comfort, power, and performance.

o   Physical assessment-Performed off the bike, the fit technician identifies client-specific biomechanical concerns that influence the bike fit.  Performing several biomechanical evaluations based on principles of physical therapy, the fit technician refines the road map.

  • Adjustment of the bike– Macro to micro.  Having a road map based on information gathered, the fit technician performs position adjustments to areas of concern.  Video data is analyzed after each position change to determine optimal range of motion and posture on the bike.  Once “roughed in,” adjustments of millimeters and fractional degrees add up to major changes in comfort, power, and performance.
  • Post Video analysis– A back to back comparison presenting adaptations and improvements, showing pre- and post-fit posturing changes.
  • Fit measurement– A series of measurements capturing the exact dimensions of the bike allowing us to recreate the position at any point.
