What is it that most cyclists really want out of their biking experience?
Whether you’re a bike trail regular, a devout roadie, or an avid mountain biker, you probably want to feel more comfortable on your bike, which will allow you to ride longer, faster and more efficiently.
It’s simple — how much you enjoy what you are doing depends greatly on how you feel while doing it. If you and your bike aren’t “getting along” so well you probably won’t continue to ride. If that is the case it may be time to consider a professional bike fit. It is some of the best money you can spend on your valuable two-wheeled investment and it will make a great difference in how you feel about your ride.
If you are one of our valued customers, or if you are just passing through our blog, the great news is that we now offer high-level professional bike fits. Bill and myself (Shawn) just spent the good part of a week in Boise, ID, learning the ins and outs of Wobblenaught Precision Bicycle Fitting (WN) – a system we believe to be the best out there.
There are countless theories and fitting systems out there, many with big names and results attached to them. What makes WN the best is simple – science. Like many systems, WN Precision takes measurements using the actual joints for precise analysis rather than dots or marks on your skin. Your skin moves around quite a bit, but the dimensions of your bones do not change. By taking precise measurements of the bike rider’s anatomy and obtaining the “real” bike geometry (full-suspension bikes change quite a bit under load), Wobblenaught’s software provides you with the best “range-of-motion” and best “line-of-pull” for your muscles to perform work on the powerful levers that are your bones. Put simply – Wobblenaught takes the intricate machine that is your body and makes it the most efficient, powerful, torque producing motor for your bicycle. And to top it all off – you will be incredibly comfortable and quiet from the waist up.
Oh and one more thing – WN fitters will spend time teaching you how to pedal most effectively from your new fit…that is the key.WN’s measurements put you in the best position to have the highest possible output but you still have to make your body take advantage of it. Trust me; the light bulb really comes on after you are taught how to pedal correctly – mainly because you are putting out so many more watts…
Did we pique your interest? Hopefully so! Ride On will begin performing fits in mid-February for $195. Call us with any questions you have or to schedule a fit now!
