It’s time to demystify and demyth the bike fitting world. BikeFit interviews professional fitters, athletes, coaches, manufacturers, and researchers about a multitude of topics in fitting.
In Episode 2, Damon interviews Dr. Rodrigo Bini of Latrobe University in Australia. He is one of the leading researchers in bike fitting in the world and also is one of the editors and authors of “Biomechanics in Cycling.”
Dr. Bini discusses his research on saddle height and how much it actually needs to be changed to impact oxygen uptake or force output. He delves into the research on static vs. dynamic fitting adjustments and also explains fitting technology and its use in the world of bike fitting. Prepare to geek out with one of the leading researchers in the field!
Saddle height is an often debated topic in cycling and there are multiple methods used to establish it. The questions raised today are part of our first 3 episodes delving into this ubiquitous topic.
Professional bike fitter and BikeFit Pro Tom Wiseman of Cycling Solutions joins BikeFit for a candid conversation on how he establishes saddle height, the importance of fit in the process, and the factors you should look for to see if your saddle is in the wrong position.
