Bike fit - Options
Dynamic Fit £110
A Dynamic fit is designed to establish the best compromise between efficient power delivery and comfort, which will vary depending upon the customers flexibility and objectives. Using a CompuTrainer ergometer with Spinscan analysis software and Dartfish motion capture to accurately define the cyclist's posture around the pedal stroke. An optimum fit is achieved using a combination of direct observation, subjective impression and objective data. The motion capture equipment enables detailed measurements of dynamic knee, hip, ankle, torso, arm and wrist postures whilst Spinscan provides left-right power contribution, and pedalling efficiency metrics. More importantly for a TT or Triathlon bike, the Dynamic Fit would also include an assessment of the total frontal surface area and look for opportunities to improve aerodynamics.
Dynamic Fit plus Shoe and Cleat £145
Our most popular fitting option. The additional Shoe & Cleat fitting is a detailed study of the foot, shoe, pedal interface and the subsequent implications to power delivery and comfort. The Shoe & Cleat option is essential for anybody experiencing any discomfort with their feet, knees and hips or hoping to prevent injury in the future. The Shoe & Cleat fitting uses the front and side cameras to accurately define knee and ankle trajectories and in conjunction with the cleat jig, fore-foot measuring device and foot scanner, help develop suitable recommendations and countermeasures. These could include cleat wedges, shims, insoles or a change in pedalling style. Asymmetric cleat placement can also be used to correct for leg length differences. If appropriate we may also use the Look Keo Fit System, an electronic pedal to accurately measure the angle of the foot and required float whilst pedalling.
Additional bike £75
Very few cyclists are satisfied with owning only the one bike, with summer, winter, mountain, fixed wheel, time trial, triathlon and many other machines taking up space in garages, sheds and houses. Replicating the recommended position on a similar geometry frame with an identical saddle is relatively straightforward, but even small differences will necessitate going through the Dynamic Fit process again.
Bike fit - Extras
Chartered Physiotherapy Assessment - Pilates Instruction £70
Our bike fittings include a number of postural and flexibility checks, but an optimum bike fit or problem resolution may require a more detailed analysis by a Chartered Physiotherapist.
Helen Tudge (MCSP) provides this service to BikeDynamics customers, with typical additional content including.
Postural assessment to identify factors that may predispose customer to muscular-skeletal pain.
Core stability assessment and training plan to optimise performance.
Detailed balance assessment of the key cycling muscle groups.
Treatment plans to address current issues.
Home regime of appropriate maintenance exercises to optimize performance and retain cycling comfort.
These Physiotherapy sessions are integrated into the Dynamic Fit process. They are currently only available on Thursday and some Monday afternoons. Please see the online calendar here for availability.
Helen also runs Pilates for Cyclists classes in Leamington Spa and other South Warwickshire locations.
Please see HelenTudge.co.uk for details.
During a typical Dynamic Fit plus Shoe and Cleats we could take between 6 and 12 video clips of front and side views. A summary DVD of the clips (including analysis) can be produced, sometimes whilst you wait, but more usually sent by post within a couple of days.
Please note we keep a stock of both new and recycled parts, particularly stems, seat posts, bars and tape, shims, wedges, insoles and cleats. If, for instance, the fitting suggests you need a different stem, you can either purchase one of ours or buy and fit one yourself separately. For new parts, I will usually match Wiggle prices.
