ProBikeFit - Bike fitting for increased power and optimum cycling position
Pro Bike Fit is a Masters Cirtified bicycle fitter offering a professional bike fitting analysis using the Retül3D motion capture technology to obtain accurate data on your bike fitting session. Bike fitting using eight (8) anatomical LED markers strategically placed on your body, the Retül sensor gathers information in real time and transmits it to the PC. Based on the information from the Retül system I decide on the adjustments necessary to obtain a perfect fit between you as a rider and your bicycle.
The Retül 3D system is a dynamic bicycle fit system, which means that it measures all relevant data while you are pedalling. Retül captures the rider's position relative to his pedalling motion, and therefore creates the most realistic replication of the actual pedal stroke and body position when out on the road and trails.
This is the best way to perform a bike fit, since there is a significant difference between sitting stationary on your bike and when you are pedalling as you would on a normal ride. Traditional bike fitting tools, such as tape measures, protractors and plumb bobs - don't allow accurate measurements while the rider is pedalling.
This doesn't mean that good knowledge of traditional bike fitting methods is not needed. It is very important to understand the fundamental ideas behind a good bike fit in order to be able to make the necessary changes on the bike setup based on the Retül measurements.
