The Follow-Up Bike Fit in More Detail
The follow-up bike fit will take you through the same process as your initial bike fit, but it’s slightly quicker as we have your data from the original bike fit appointment.
The more information you can bring to your bike fit regarding changes since your last bike fit, will give you the best results. Changes to your riding style, your training routine, your components, your body composition, and your equipment can all have an impact on your bike fit. By giving us this information, we can adjust your bike fit based off your changes.
Pre-Fit: Cyclist Survey and Checklist
Once you book your follow-up bike fit, we will send you an email with a questionnaire to fill out. While this is the same survey we gave you in your initial appointment, we’d like to get an idea of what has changed for you since then. This survey is to gather as much information on your changes that we can consider in your follow-up bike fit.
Step 1: Initial Assessment & Review
Every Bike Fit Studio Retül Bike Fitting starts with an initial assessment. We discuss your cycling history, any previous injury issues, points of discomfort, cycling experience, and your goals in cycling as detailed in your pre-fit survey. We then go through a physiological assessment to identify leg length discrepancy issues, flexibility issues, stability issues, core strength, upper body strength, and pronation issues. We use that data to better understand and plan for any accommodations that need to be made in the fit. Bike Fit Studio Bike Fitting is highly accurate, so we look at the contours of the soles of your feet to identify varus or valgus feet so we can assess any need for cleat wedges.
Step 2: Initial Video & Data Capture
Before any changes are made, we get precise measurements of your current position on your bike from both sides, using the Retül motion capture system. These initial captures help us to quantify where you are riding before the bike fit, and explain some of the issues that you may have been experiencing previously. We also examine differences on the left and right sides to better understand your riding style and to assess any rider asymmetry, because every cyclist is built differently, and Retül takes that into account in every aspect of your bike fit.
Step 3: Knee Tracking & Cleat Placement
Before making any major changes to the bike configuration, we then assess your knee tracking. Ideally, as a cyclist, your knee will move up and down in the same plane. Any lateral or medial movement can result in loss of power, discomfort, or even injury. Lasers are placed in front of you and markers are positioned on your tibial tuberosity and in-line with the second metatarsal head for each leg. Changes are then made to the cleat position to increase power, decrease foot discomfort, and to adjust knee tracking through the pedal stroke.
Step 4: Rider Position Changes
The primary part of the fit involves changing your bike configuration to arrive at an orthordox road, Track, TT or triathlon position based on your cycling discipline.
This can involve simply the modification of the saddle position, modification of the bar position, or replacing stems, saddles, bars, or cranks (at the customer’s direction).
The goal is to take an existing bike, with all of its limitations and equipment, and get as close as possible to an ideal fit.
Step 5: Final Changes & Final Video Capture
After your bike fit is validated based upon your feedback, and our own visual assessment – your fitter will take a final set of Retül captures from both sides to validate the fit with unparalleled precision.
Micro-adjustments are then made, and your bike fitting is completed.
To complete your appointment with Bike Fit Studio, your bike configuration is traced using the Retül Zin Device to give us precise bike configuration coordinates for you to use.
Step 6: Your Personalized Bike Fit Report
When your fit and Zin Measurement are both completed, you will receive a Bike Fit Studio Retül fit report containing before and after photos, the resulting bike configuration data, left and right body geometry data, and some notes about your fit. You will now have finished your Bike Fit Studio Bike Fit, and will leave with the optimal bike position for you and your bike.
