Youth & Junior bike fit
Why do we offer a specific Youth & Junior service?
In a world of slammed stems, pointy feet pedalling, and other questionable trends, a young, aspiring and growing rider could be unknowingly building up to a lifetime of injury and physical damage.
We want to help young riders and parents have full control of their position on the bike, with an understanding of the basic elements involved in fitting a rider to a bike.
The same elements of our Custom Bike Fit apply to this service, however, we also include a further 2 appointments during the year to reassess the position (including all points of contact from foot to hand) as part of service.
Main features of your Custom Youth & Junior Bike Fit
- Pre Bike fit consultation
- Musculoskeletal analysis
- 3 point on bike analysis & correction
- Custom Bike Fit Report & recommendations
- Follow up 2 appointments within 12 months
Pre Bike Fit consultation
Complete the online form to highlight your main areas of concern, your immediate & long term goals, current bike/equipment and any previous injuries, to allow us to accurately assess, correct and improve your position.
By identifying areas such as stiff joints, reduced mobility (eg shoulders), tight muscle groups (hip flexors, hamstrings), previous injuries, leg length imbalances, we can work to correct the position on the bike to eliminate aches, pains, add comfort and improved performance. Pain will lead to increased fatigue, possibly long term injury and much reduced enjoyment of the ride.
3 point On bike Assessment & Correction
Following the BikeFit® fitting process your custom bike fit begins with an analysis of your foot/pedal interface, moving through to the pelvis and saddle, and finally hand contact on the bars.
Power transfer from body to pedal starts with the shoe. Any alignment issues here will cause immediate energy loss, and reduced efficiency of performance on the bike.
Pelvic Pains/Loss of Performance
As most clients report pains or aches in their shoulders, this can often be attributed to a poor set up on saddle position, which, in conjunction with your knees are the 2 most complained about areas. Working through fore and aft, as well as height and tilt, saddle position we can correct and align the sit bones ensuring optimal hip/knee/shoulder position is achieved.
The final contact point is the hands on the handlebars. Achieving a safe and comfortable reach position is our final goal. Ensuring a reach to the brake levels from both the hoods and the drops without losing form or performance completes the triangle of contact points.*
*Areobars can also be included within any of our bike fit services.
