Hello, my name is Vinicio Lazzarini and I am a physical therapist who graduated for 25 years and fitter since 2018 with more than 300 complete fits. I have attended a bike fit course from the physical therapist Gustavo Vieira at the city of Belo Horizonte and several webinars of professor Marcelo Rocha from Brasilia.
The goals of a bike fit are to make a biomechanical, ergonomic, physical and global analysis of the cyclist and bike set to decide and execute the required adjustments accordingly. Such adjustments aim for the improvement of the athlete’s performance due to more comfort while cycling. Any athlete, including the amateur ones, can benefit from a bike fit.
We start with the analysis and the adjustment of the sneaker clubs, followed by the three dimensions of the saddle (height, recoil and inclination) and by a personalized measure of the cockpit's height (table and handlebars) according to the athlete’s needs.
This entire process is made with the athlete on top of the bicycle, which is attached to a fixed training roll. Specific anatomic points are marked on the cyclist body enabling the high-speed camera to catch them and allowing the measure of body angles. Afterwards, a 2D shot is made through specific software, so the fitter can analysis for posterior decision making.
In order to avoid any orthopaedic complaints or problems, adjustment kits of Ergon sneakers are also used during the process, so then I can align precisely according to the angle of rotation of the athlete's feet.
The evaluation starts with a complete anamnesis: we do mobility, flexibility and muscle strength tests. Then it's taken the measure of the ischial bones, which are important to determine the correct width of the seat, and from that, tells which is the best type of seat for the athlete.
All these stages combined take approximately 2 hours, and the entire method follows Retül's guidelines.
