We’re discounting our Dynamic Bike Fittings the rest of December. Pick your jaw up off the floor and read on…
What is a “Dynamic Bike Fit”? I’m glad you asked.
You bring your bike, your gear, and get ready to get your sweat on. That’s right, these bike fits aren’t a walk in the park.
You’ll walk into the awesome House of Pain (Alleviation) and your coach and bike fitting expert will greet you. You’ll chit chat about races, training, and all those goals you’re going to smash next year.
This whole time your bike fitting expert will be processing this information and begin painting the picture for what your ideal fit should be. Comfort vs speed. Aggressive vs casual. Aero or non-aero.
This initial conversation will then move towards your first “test.” Don’t worry, this doesn’t hurt and you don’t need to study for it. In fact, this is where you get to show off your flexibility, limb length, and natural biomechanics. This is where your coach’s mindset shifts from “ideal bike fit” to “ideal for you.”
After you’ve shown off your superior athletic genetics during this off-the-bike assessment, it’s time to let the sweat roll.
Why do I have to break a sweat!? You are asking ALL the right questions!
We need you to simulate a variety of efforts on the bike so we can check your fit and body angles over that broad range of intensities. A lot can change when you are putting out 1.21 gigawatts.
You may be one of those people who look and feel just fine in cruise mode, but when the hammer drops, your body position and alignment goes out of whack.
In order to capture all of this power you’re laying down, the video camera will be rolling. Your bike fitting expert will use this awesome footage to measure your body angles, check joint alignments, and make sure your muscles are firing at the right time.
These measurements, combined with your goals, and your natural biomechanics all come together and THEN adjustments can be made. You’ll be amazed at what 1 cm can do.
Bring a water bottle as well – you’ll want to be sipping on it while we make the necessary adjustments to your bike. This is your recovery time.
After that short breather, it’s now time to check the changes. That’s right, more sweating and plenty of dialogue between you and the bike fit guru to determine if further changes need to be made. Video will still be rolling and angles re-checked.
Once all the major adjustments have been made, and you are happy with the fit…you’ll be free to leave and drop the hammer on your riding buddies. Fear not, if it doesn’t feel right after a few rides, we will fix it for free for the next 30 days (some exceptions here).
But wait! THERE’S MORE! While your fit specialists is going through the fit process, if there is a specific limiter in your strength or flexibility, they will show you a few exercises or stretches to help correct your imbalance.
You want MORE? Wow. OK. How about our fit specialists are all experts on different riding positions, pedal stroke mechanics, and muscle activation during an efficient pedal stroke. So if there is an obvious issue with any of the above, your fitter will give you specific cues and pointers on how to fix these problems.
So how long does this process take?
Typically you’ll be in and out in about 90 minutes unless you’re in need of a bunch of adjustments. Or, your bike contains rusted out bolts that make adjustments tricky. Or you really like to chat.
So how much cheddar is this going to take? Just a single Benjamin Franklin. (That’s $100 in case that last part confused you…)
That’s right, $50 off the regular bike fitting price.
So how do you book? Just shoot us an email – firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call – (901) 308-7272
We’ll set up an appointment and rock and roll from there.
Share with your friends and spread the fast and pain free riding love this Holiday Season.
