How does this work?

It's pretty simple actually how we do this.  There are two options to choose from:

1.  "Live" fitting via Skype 

We can do the entire fitting "live" via Skype if you have a high quality web cam.  HD webcams are pretty cheap these days (my current model is the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 which cost me about $70) and provide for a great experience on Skype.  It helps having a "helper" on your end to move the camera around to get views of you on and off the bike from different angles.

The bike fitting process begins with an interview to find your riding habits, goals for the year, previous injuries, current issues on the bike, current bike setup, etc.  

We then move to a movement assessment that I walk you through so I can get an idea of what restrictions in stability and range of motion you have.  

Then it's on the bike, where I'll have you riding at different cadences and powers as well as going through some custom tests on-the-bike I've used for years.

I can do some measurements using some digital tools, but functional on-the-bike tests have been the most effective way to ferret out problems.

This method is the most time-consuming, but it provides the best interactive experience.

Cost:  $125/hour

2.  The second method involves a recorded section and then a Skype consultation.

First, you will use a digital camcorder or high-quality digital camera that records video and record yourself on the bike for 20 seconds in each of the positions from the right and left sides, as well as the back and front.  The camera should be placed just below saddle height and just far enough away so the entire body from head to feet throughout the pedal stroke is in view.

Next you'll record yourself going through my customized functional movement sequence which is available on YouTube here.  You can simply follow along with the video and record yourself at the same time.

You then take these video files and "drop" them in my MediaFire drop box here.

Once I review them, we will make contact on Skype and go over what I've found.  It will be necessary to be ready to get on the bike during our interview so that we can adequately discuss the findings and changes we'll need to make.

Cost: $150 flat fee

**you will be responsible for making any and all changes to your bike, I recommend you take it to your local bike shop for service**
