Bike fitting Procedure
Following on from Neill's role as a therapist, his approach to bike fitting is to assess the biomechanics of the rider and then fit the bike to the person's individual needs to allow that rider to achieve their personal goals.
The process starts with a detailed questionnaire to find out about the rider's cycling experience, past injuries, present concerns and goals for the future.
A biomechanical assessment then follows to understand the rider's movement patterns and to get a clear picture of the causes of any problems that the rider is currently experiencing on the bike.
The rider is then observed on their bike and positional alterations are made as necessary to achieve a harmonious balance of rider and bike. Shoes and cleats are assessed and altered as required. These changes will allow the cyclist to get the best out of themselves and their cycle.
At the conclusion of the fitting process the rider will be able to ride more efficiently which will result in more power, better pedaling dynamics and increased comfort on the bike.
