Data Driven Bike Fitting
During bike fitting sessions, the optimal cyclist’ position is determined. Finding this optimal cycling position is often a time-consuming and labor-intensive process, i.e., a standard bike fitting procedure takes at least two hours when done by an expert bike fitter. The best position is a combination of comfort, performance and injury prevention. To get to this optimal position, a series of adjustments are made to the bike configuration. To date, however, bike fitting suffers from expert subjectivity as there is no consensus among bike fitters on which parameters to focus on. In order to examine this hypothesis about expert subjectivity, a reproducible test methodology is currently under development to perform and evaluate a bike fit by a group of independent experts in Flanders. Results of these tests will be discussed during the presentation
