In my almost 50-year cycling career as a competitor, coach and bike fitter, I have been able to observe cyclists of every level, style and ability. I have boiled all of this experience down to one basic fact: cyclists are athletes in every aspect, no different from swimmers, basketball players or track & field athletes.
Lots of new technologies have emerged in the world of bike fitting that has the potential to alter the language that we use when we are discussing bike fitting. However, the ultimate aim remains the same no matter what tools are or are not used. What does a successful bike fit look like in the end?
