Tri Bike Fitting is essential if you are: Do you have only one skinny-tired bike, or will you own both a road race bike and a tri-specific-geometry bike? Are you intending to road race on this bike, or commute, or do centuries and group rides with road riders? Do you intend to spend a lot of time in the aero position, or only be there very occasionally? How important is speed to you?
Essentials of a Tri – Bike fit: There are just a few reasons why you should get bike fitted. A tri bike fit is essential when you put aero bars on your bike, whether you have a standard-geometry road bike or a steep-angled triathlon specific bike frame. Body position is, by far, the most important consideration when it comes to reducing aerodynamic drag, so you want to ensure you are fit correctly to maximize the benefits of an aero position. At the same time, it is crucial to maintain power output and comfort. As triathletes, we also have the need to run strong off the bike and it has been proven time and again that proper positioning, utilizing a tri bike fit, will facilitate this.
Every athlete will be interviewed to determine his or her custom needs for their fit. Tri bike fits always take into consideration the athlete’s goals, riding and racing distances planned, ability level, and flexibility. Your bike fit will be conducted using a Computrainer® and sophisticated computer and video equipment. Using the Computrainer® you will also be able see changes in your power output and your pedaling technique as your position changes.
