An afternoon spent with @danpullen99 @cyclingsheffieldgiantsheffield looking for symmetry and stability. If you’re racing in 2019, this is the time to address issues and dial in new equipment before the training load ramps up #bikefit #bikefitting #cycling #fromwhereiride #symmetry #balance #improvement #bebetter

You can over complicate things sometimes. A client showed up with this pressure map, the result of a previous appointment with a well known UK specialist fitter/retailer. I'm not going to second guess what they were thinking, but they weren't looking at, or listening to, the rider. There were plenty of visible compensations and verbal feedback indicating his saddle was significantly - in the region of 20mm - too high. But the pursuit of a pre-defined measurement on motion capture and whatever they were looking for on the pressure map led them away from the obvious. The purpose of this post isn't to highlight someone else's error, because who hasn't stuffed up occasionally? But it is to show that technology doesn't guarantee a result. Sure, information is good. But it is the decisions taken by the fitter that define the quality of the outcome. So, if you're in the market for a fit, shop for people, not machines. Find someone you can collaborate with, not just once but in the long term. Talk to them, ask questions, be curious, build some trust. You're far more likely to get the outcome you want. #bikefit #bikefitting #results #trust #decisions #progress #cycling #fromwhereiride

Meet the new apprentice: Elvis, the educational plastic pelvis. Seen here modelling an SMP Dynamic. #bikefit #posture #saddles #pelvis #support #comfort 🕺🏻

We’re feeling the love for @sellesmpofficial this week. This Dynamic is ready for installation and roll out on a client’s bike this morning #smp #smpdynamic #bikefit #support #stability #comfort #bikefit #bikefitting #progress #bebetter

A couple of new saddle solutions from @sellesmpofficial landed today. Different shapes, different widths and, yes, marmite aesthetics, but top marks for skeletal support and pressure relief. A significant majority of issues on the bike are caused directly or indirectly by indifferent saddle choice, often without the rider realising it. If the seat isn’t right, it’s unlikely anything else will be #bikefit #saddles #comfort #performance #fromwhereiride #cycling #posture #bebetter #improvement at Fit2Ride

Repost from @mellywellywoo using @RepostRegramApp - Great session with James @fit2ridebikefit this morning! Before and after photo = Lower saddle, higher bars and change of cleat position.

We kicked off a #workinprogress with @neopro_cycle_coaching @transition_cycle_coaching this week, setting some initial positional benchmarks for the start of Jody’s competitive comeback next season. After six years off the bike, and only a month back on it, he has some ambitious long term goals. But with a progressive approach, and some solid planning, it’s going to be a fascinating journey #bikefit #bikefitting #timetrials #racing #speed #roadtothenational10 #plans #goals #ambition

A well used pair of cycling shoes always have a story to tell. In this case, an unstable, and unsupported, left foot meant the rider was putting so much pressure through their forefoot that they had excavated two significant dents in the insole with their first and second toes. As well as being uncomfortable, the significant knock-on effects were seen further up the chain of movement. If your shoes look like this, and it’s not uncommon, it’s time to put some structure under the foot #sidas #custom #support #stability #insoles #footbed #bikefit

The aftermath of an outstanding evening @themoorcock with @corinnenotcolin @topdoorespresso Amazing, innovative cooking, highly recommended.

Repost from @flyerelle using @RepostRegramApp - Had a catch up session with @fit2ridebikefit James this week - can’t tell you how much of a difference having a bike fit at the beginning made, best investment by far, and now to be settling in to a much better position naturally. Look and feel a ton better on the bike butttt Heading up to MAX point on the seat post 😳 😑 I guess next time I’ll be buying a Small instead of XS eek! @canyon Whoever said 34inch legs was a gift is lying 😂😂😂 #bikefit #yorkshirecycling #bikelife #34inchlegs #canyon #mycanyon #canyonendurace #discbrakes #winterbike #cycling #cyclinglife #fit2ride #bikefitter #learntocycle

Always nice to see clients scrapping for the win. Nice work @gabzcullaigh @robwscott98 #racing #sprint #cycling #close #bikefit #footbeds #sidas

Solid, productive morning with @georgefox___ @phmas_cycling_team Basic contact point measurements are actually very similar in before (left) and after (right) images, but the second has: Custom arch support from @sidasuk ✅ Foot correction courtesy of @form_bikefit ✅ Significantly narrower handlebar ✅ Result: Big changes to posture and symmetry. A reminder that #bikefit is about much more than numbers. #bikefitting #support #improvement #bebetter #stability #racing #cycling

School holidays. Less time working, more time riding to cafes with small people #happydays #canallife #tunnels #nocars #fun #kids #cycling #calderfornia #fromwhereiride

Sometimes you fit for speed, sometimes for sustainability and comfort. When the client knocks out 380 miles plus change in one ride and doesn’t fall apart in the process, you know you are on the right lines #miles #miles #moremiles #audax #superrandonneur #mad #kudos Repost from @jay_seventy_one using @RepostRegramApp - Rummaging for a charger. Need to learn that less is more sometimes.
