Barbara received her training and certification in professional bicycle fitting from Serotta International Cycling Institute in Saratoga Springs, NY. For the last 5 years this program had been run by Greg Robidoux, who has been working with cyclists performing medical bike fitting and treating cycling related injury for more than 8 years.
The fit process is a very detailed experience that is meant to provide a cyclist with a roadmap, addressing each individual’s unique anatomy, history and skill level. Throughout the fit process you are guided by your fitter. Each step is explained, and, when complete, you are given measurements which provide for comfort, economy of movement and safety. These coordinates are used to establish dimensions on a custom frame or determine the best position on a standard bicycle.
Whether you want to improve performance on a standard bike or are experiencing the common malaise of numb hands, feet and derriere, a thorough professional bicycle fit is well worth the investment.
All you need to bring is your bike, bike shorts, bike shoes and any gear you might want to add or change on your bike such as clip on aerobars for your road bike or a new saddle for your tri bike.
