Biomechanical Cycle-Fit

Building stability from the foundation up

  • Evaluate your Feet and Lower Body Structural Alignment
  • Leg Length Assessment - Functional or Structural
  • Measure Lower Body and Foot Alignment for Cleat Placement and Q-Angle
  • Evaluate Cycle Shoes - Fit / Modify to Fit Feet

 

Checking Rider position

Using lasers to check alignment on the bike

On The Bike

Power Position

  • Pedal Stroke - Spin and Power
  • Seat Height / SeatSetbac
  • Leg Length - PSIS Alignment (posterior superior iliac spine)
  • Fore-Aft / Internal - External Cleat Alignment / Q-angle

Comfort Position

  • Stem Length, Stem Angle, Bar Height, Bar Width

Aero Position - TT and Tri

  • Power (watts) vs. Aero
  • The most efficient position for each individual, flexibility, strength, body type
  • Multi-positions for different course types: Flat / Hilly / Mountains

Pre-Fit

No Orthotics/Float Cleats
Body Rotated Left
> Left PSIS Low
Spine Curved

Post-Fit

Orthotics / Aligned Fixed Cleats
4mm Lift Under Left Cleat
PSIS Level / Body Centered
> Spine Straight

 

 

NEW SCIENCE FOR CLEAT PLACEMENT
We have done extensive research on FORE/AFT cleat placement.

Results:

  • More Efficient Pedal Stroke
  • Increased Power
  • Better Foot & Lower Leg Mechanics
  • More Balanced Usage
  • Greater Comfort

 

Custom Cycle Shoe From Foot Fitness and Bont

Custom Made to Your Feet (Not Just Custom Fit)

 

Shoe / Cleat / Pedal - POWER Transfer

Your Shoes are what connect you to the bike.
The Closer the Fit - The Better the Power Transfer!

You can spend thousands of dollars
on lighter and more high tech equipment, BUT:

If Feet, Knees and Hips are moving side to side
you are losing POWER and SPEED!

Also:

  • Knee, Hip or Back discomfort or pain
  • Shoes must be SNUG but not TIGHT which will create pressures and hot spots
  • Feet must be stable - Custom Footbeds or Custom Orthotics
  • Cleats must be Aligned - Little or No Movement
  • Pedal must have a Large Platform - Stability
