“If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
Case Study 1
Comfortable 3000km riding time post- F.I.S.T. road bike fit ✔ New pedals researched, bought, attached to bike, cleats attached to shoes (all DIY because cyclist is confident & competent ☺) ✔ 30 minutes into next turbo session feel beginnings of pain in medial right knee ✘
Called to check if possible cause:
altered Q factor? ✔ new cleat position? ✔ change in effective saddle height ?✔ some/all the above combined to modify ‘power to the pedal’ position AWAY from the optimum previously chosen ✔
Could this be you?
No problem! We’ll set the fitting bike up at your previous chosen set-up and with your sparkly new pedals, we can check your position and your pedal action, making any appropriate adjustments on the fly. Quick, easy and more productive than having multiple DIY guesses.
