Bike Fitting, Coaching, Performance Retail, and Indoor Training for all levels of cycling athletes.
Road - Gravel - Triathlon
The philosophy underlying the science of bike fitting is that everyone is unique in their preferences and aspirations on the bike, and the process of finding an optimal position should reflect that. Together, we will look at your current or prospective bike, talk about your riding goals, and evaluate how to achieve a fit that complements your body type and fitness. Our goal is that you leave the process fully confident that we have determined the best bike and position for your individual needs.
The sizing step of the process begins with a physical evaluation and detailed measurement of your body. That information is then processed in our software system to help determine a baseline setup any specific frame, geometry, and riding style. You will receive that data in a report that you can take to your bicycle dealer to purchase a new bike, or we can apply it to your existing one.
Position Analysis and Adjustment:
The Ames Cycling Center is one of only two facilities in the United States that features the full BikeFitting.com suite of technology, including the Position Simulator with 3D pedaling analyzer. The stand alone Position Simulator, or “fitting bike,” allows us to efficiently try out a variety of positions in concert with a 3D camera system, while the pedal analyzer provides real-time feedback and metrics with regard to your pedal stroke.
This technology, along with your feedback, allows us to address any special imbalances that require additional expertise. Once we come to a decision on your optimal position, we apply the changes to your bike using laser measuring tools. The result is a fully customized position that will maximize your functionality and comfort on the bike.
