Bicycle Fitting

 

 

 
A properly fitted bike

A bike that is properly fitted to your individual riding characteristics and comfort is the key to producing power. If you are not comfortable, you can not produce power optimally. An Advanced fitting addresses such biomechanical issues as leg length discrepancies, riding style, muscle imbalances, back and neck pain, saddle soreness, and flexibility. Bike fitting may be an ongoing process as you become more competitive and desire a more aerodynamic position. The fit for a recreational rider should be different than a competitive cyclists.


Not everybody is the same

The fact that every person is unique does not make bike fitting easy. Torso length, leg length, and arm length all vary from person to person and in proportion to each other, and sometimes vary from left to right on the same person. So It is not appropriate to adjust your bicycle by just following a procedure without customization of rider's differences and needs, and knowing when and how takes a great deal of expertise and experience.


What makes us different

At Escala Studio not only are we known for our bike fitting expertise but we can prove it, as we have performed hundreds of successful bike fitments. Now days  many bike shops claim to do "professional bike fitting" but the reality is a very different one. With us you can have the satisfaction of knowing that we not just claim but we are truly experienced on the art of fitting.



 
A large variety of fitting systems

There are a wide variety of fitting systems that use ratios, formulas, algorithms, computer programs, etc.. All this systems are very good, but the most important thing to remember is that no one system can tell you how your bike should optimally fit because no system knows your riding style, biomechanics, injury history, etc.. This is where the art of bike fitting begins and it takes one to one interaction with a professional to fit you properly.


Incorporating different systems
 

As a part of our different fitting and testing processes we incorporate different analysis to identify technique issues with your cycling. We count with a computerized system that reads power, crank torque distribution and many other indicators. We use video motion analysis with state-of-the-art hardware and software. Our motion analysis system is on the cutting edge of today's fitting techniques. We also use other industry standard fitting devices such as Rotational Adjustment Devices (RADs™) system. A USA Cycling Certified Coach and Elite athlete performs the fit and testing while taking in consideration your riding style and training goals.
