Dan Empfield talks bike fitting training

Regular followers of the blog will know that Dan Empfield was at Ten-Point this week. On Monday and Tuesday he delivered his F.I.S.T. bike fitting course for the first time outside of the US. With 8 students on the course, we had a fantastic two days learning from the master. Dan was full of amazingly interesting insights, in-depth learning and some wonderful stories from his years in the bike industry. Here is a short introductory video we produced with Dan while he was over explaining why he has partnered with us as his European training centre. Whether you are a dealer who is interested in bike fitting, or simply a cyclist interested in learning more about bike fitting, coming on one of these courses here, at Ten-Point in Buckinghamshire, is well worth it. If you’re interested, drop into the shop, call up or send us an email and Brian will get in touch. Over the coming weeks there will be more video clips from Dan’s visit, where we got chance to sit him down and ask him some questions, so stay tuned for...

F.I.S.T. dealer fitting course with Dan Empfield at Ten-Point

We’re getting excited here at Ten-Point. Tomorrow Dan Empfield, the father of the F.I.S.T. protocol of bike fitting, arrives! He’s over for a few days to run a two-day course on F.I.S.T. bike fitting for some UK bike dealers who want to up skill their staff in the best bike fitting methods around. For those that have never heard of Dan, beyond his bike fitting knowledge, he is also credited with designing the first triathlon specific bike – the Quintana Roo – and the first triathlon specific wetsuit! He is the owner and manager of www.slowtwitch.com (probably the most popular triathlon specific website in the world) and in 2004 he was inducted into the Triathlete Magazine Hall of Fame. All three of our bike fitting staff, that’s Helen, Brian and Bryn, were trained over in the US by Dan and we are the European Training and Service Centre for the GURU Dynamic Bike Fitting System too.  That’s why Dan has partnered with us to run his European training courses from Ten-Point. All places on the course this time around are fully booked, but if you are interested in bike fitting, let Brian know and he will keep you updated with what is going on in the future. Keep your eyes on the blog for pics and a write up next...
