Sourland Cycles - Tom Mason

Overview

Tom Mason is our bike fitter extraordinaire. He is a Level 2 certified BikeFit specialist, with hundreds of fits and happy customers to his credit. Tom is a life-long cyclist with a wide variety of riding experience; he has overcome some injuries as well. Combined with his patience,customer rapport and attention-to-detail, all this makes him an exceptional bike fitter. If you are looking for greater comfort on long rides, more speed on your tri-bike or you need some fine tuning to address flexibility or injury, Tom can help. The Sourland Cycles approach to bike fitting is a holistic one, not a rigid system of parameters and computer programs. While we use elements of other programs as well as common sense and years of riding experience, BikeFit is the foundation of our program. BikrFit was started in 1995 by Paul Swift who is recognized one of the leaders in deeloping the bike fitting technologies. BikeFit was recognized by Bycling Magazine as one of the most innovative fit programs for cycling. The BikeFit starts with specific measurements, both on and off the bike. The andle of the forefoot is the cornerstone of a BikeFit session. From foot angle and position flows everything else, suchas knee, hip alignment and lower back stress.Only then do we address the following areas: * Saddle Selection, height and fore/aft position *Handlebar positioning,width, reach and drop *Crank arm length * Cleat position and rottion. We also incorporate the Giant RightRide system which can help determine correct sizing of bikes, allow us to duplicate various settings and sizes so we can best determine what bike geometry and size is best for you. This system also lets us quickly swap saddles, saddle set-backs, stem length, handlebar widths and crank arm length to help determine which of these variables is the best fit and to make sure you are comfortable with your bike settings."
