Guru Bicycle Fit and Custom Bicycle Design Essentials
February 13, 2018 @ 8:00 am - February 15, 2018 @ 5:00 pm$1024.95
The GURU Academy’s newest offering, this course will teach fitters and cycling fanatics the basics of bike fit and custom bicycle design. This 3-day course is being held in the days preceding the North American Handmade Bike Show (NAHBS) which is being held nearby in Hartford, CT.
The curriculum has been formulated using input from our international team of fitters and industry partners from MOOTS, BikeCAD and Cannondale. This course will offer 1.5 days of bicycle fitting education followed by 1.5 days of custom bicycle design education and will culminate with students designing their own custom bicycle using BikeCAD with assistance from our instructors and partners. Students will leave with the skills required to fit and design custom made bicycles.
Each Guru Academy course promotes an interactive learning environment with emphasis on hands-on fit demonstrations and active training to reinforce key concepts. Students will fit other students using our Guru Dynamic Fit Unit and Range of Right™ motion capture system however all skills that are acquired in this course can be applied to work with any fit bike or fitting equipment. No prerequisites are required for this course but an understanding of bicycle and/or human mechanics will be helpful.
