Bike-Fit
  • Commercial Fit Systems
    • Formula-Based
    • Customised Fit
  • Medically-Based Fit

VelophysioCycling Physiotherapy Services

Commercial Fit Systems – Formula Based

+

  • Cheap
  • Good Starting Point
  • Better Than Nothing!

-

  • Don’t consider individual strength, flexibility, or co-ordination of rider
  • Don’t often consider the goals, type of rider, injury history etc
slide6

Commercial Fit Systems – Customised Fit

+

  • Much Better!
  • Consider the individual
  • More interactive, dynamic process

-

  • Can compensate for, rather than address, riders’ physical imperfections due to lack of medical expertise of the fitter

VelophysioCycling Physiotherapy Services

“Medically Based” Bike-Fit

  • Includes musculoskeletal screening
  • Interactive process using digital video analysis
  • “Off-bike” solutions also offered to “on-bike” problems
          • Stretching
          • Strengthening
          • Stability / Co-ordination
          • Self-Treatment
bike fit goals

VelophysioCycling Physiotherapy Services

Bike-FitGoals
  • Stable and Symmetrical Pelvis
  • Knees and hips moving through range that reflects rider’s flexibility and injury history
  • Knees tracking straight in frontal plane
  • Comfortable neck, shoulders, arms, wrists and hands
  • Optimal balance and handling
  • Optimal aerodynamics
example asymmetrical pelvic movement

VelophysioCycling Physiotherapy Services

Example: Asymmetrical Pelvic Movement
  • Structural assymetry? (e.g. Leg length difference)
  • Functional assymetry? (e.g. twisted pelvis, flexibility imbalance, muscle activation pattern imbalance)
  • Poor bike set up?
  • Simply poor technique?
example poor knee tracking in frontal plane12

VelophysioCycling Physiotherapy Services

Example: Poor Knee Tracking in Frontal Plane
  • Faulty Knee Tracking can be caused by “Top Down” and “Bottom-up” Factors
  • Examples of “Bottom Up:”
    • Overpronation
    • Anatomical Variations (e.g. Tibial Varum, Forefoot Varus/Valgus)
    • Faulty Cleat position
  • Examples of “Top Down:”
    • Unstable or asymmetrical pelvic movement
    • Tight hip lateral rotators
    • Muscle co-ordination issues e.g. overactive TFL muscle
