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 week…
