The original bike fit education company, educating the best bike fitters in the world. We offer the most comprehensive bike fit education in the industry.
Who needs a bike fit?
Everyone who rides a bike should get a bike fit! Whether you are a recreational rider or a serious racer, your bicycle must fit you. Just like your cycling shoes and shorts, your bike must fit properly in order for you to be comfortable, perform well and prevent injuries. With a comprehensive fit, every cyclist will have a better experience.
Why do we teach bike fitting?
Bike fit is an opportunity to not only provide a valuable service to your customer but to remain competitive in an ever changing retail landscape. We also strongly believe that bike fit belongs to everyone in the industry and can be performed with a methodology that is brand agnostic. We want to cultivate “practitioners” of bike fit, individuals who are able to collect data on each athlete and confidently make informed decisions about rider position.
What is the perfect fit?
The perfect fit is comfortable. It facilitates efficiency of movement and the ability to generate power and speed. In the proper position, on the right bike, you can effectively balance, stabilize, and easily handle the bike. This culminates in the ultimate biomechanical marriage of cyclist and machine.
How is the perfect fit achieved?
By applying the most up-to-date evidence based principles of bike fit, using a standardized and easily repeatable method. A “perfect fit” is about the education and skill of the fitter to use what ever tools at his or her disposal to tease out the best position for that athlete at that time. The wonderful array of technology available to fitters should augment their skill instead of driving the fit. The perfect fit is based on the rider’s unique history, current physical concerns as well as their biomechanical interaction with the bike. SICI certified bike fit professionals will work with you to achieve a position that allows you to meet your goals, while taking into consideration your abilities and limitations.
