SWIMSOLUTIONS

Ten-Point are pleased to announce its partnership with SwimSolutions owned and run by Tracey Baumann the head Total Immersion Coach for the UK. Tracey works extensively with Terry Laughlin the founder and head of Total Immersion USA and is one of his master coaches.

Swimming is an essential life skill but many struggle to reach a stage where they feel comfortable and efficient in water. Conventional teaching methods appear to focus on sets, lengths and exhaustive combinations. Given the difficulty that triathletes have with this discipline perhaps this is not the way.

Total Immersion focuses on streamlining, balance, efficiency and most importantly learning to work with water rather than against it. If swimming is your nemesis Ten-Point highly recommends that you seek the advice of SwimSolutions and consider the Total Immersion method of swimming.

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...

Storck Aernario Platinum picks up top award

Another week goes by and the Storck Aernario Platinum picks up another award. Not content with being Tour Magazine’s ‘best bike ever’, it has just walked off with the top spot in the Road.cc Superbike shootout 2014-2015. They said it was “light, stiff and comfortable” and it “sparkled on the climbs, flattering your abilities with a wind-behind-you feel”. High praise indeed! Ten-Point, for those of you that didn’t know, are a Platinum Storck dealer. Because of this, we have a fully built Aernario Platinum, running a dream build of Shimano Dura Ace Di2 and a Rotor 3D+ crank with Q-rings, in the shop. Why don’t you come on in and take a look at this beauty? Be careful though, to see it is to want it! If you’re interested in the Aernario but maybe can’t quite stretch to the lofty heights of the Platinum, then the Aernario G1 is almost identical. It gives away 100g in weight to its more illustrious stablemate, but otherwise the differences are hard to spot. Equally, if the Dura Ace Di2 build is not to your liking, don’t forget that we can build your dream bike with whatever components you most...
