Clinical Bike Fit

Bike positioning is an important variable influencing pedalling efficiency, fatigue and performance. Positional change is achieved through adjustment of contact points that provide the connection between body and bike. These include handlebars/Time Trial extensions, saddle and the pedal/cleat interface that all transfer load and force with each pedal stroke. Positioning is also an important factor in preventing and managing injury due to the repetitive movement and stability required by the body as load/forces are transferred from one body region to another. In the presence of injury or following injury, incremental adjustment of bike position can also be an essential element in achieving competition goals.

It is vital bike position advice is provided by an individual with practical cycling knowledge combined with theoretical knowledge of human movement, anatomy and pathology and how interaction will occur on the bike.
