A friend of the shop, Miguel got his first professional fit on his No. 22 Broken Arrow. Knowing that Miguel relentlessly rides hundreds of miles a week, Wilis gave him an extensive setup to ensure optimal comfort and performance.
Getting someone comfortable on their bike is of the utmost importance to getting the most out of any riding experience. It allows you to understand what wasn’t working before and addresses what needs to be changed specifically for your body and riding style; ultimately to enjoy riding more and prevent injury.
“I was suffering on the bike, and after the fitting, it really impressed me. I thought it was going to be a loose fitting, but it actually made a huge difference. My bike went from painful to 100% comfortable. I was getting pain after 30 miles before, and now I’m doing 110 miles and want to keep going.”
“Wilis went over the essentials. Starting with how I stand up. If my feet are at an angle, and we found out one is longer than the other. I rode for about 20 minutes or so on the trainer and he adjusts as I free-pedaled. We would assess what needed to be done based on a combination of how I looked and what I felt. My saddle height and my reach, testing my flexibility, measuring everything, etc. The whole process took about two hours.”
If you’ve never had a fit before, you don’t know what to look for if you have discomfort or pain. “It gave me a clear sense of what to look for if something is wrong.” How do your feet feel, how is your back, how are your hands doing? Miguel had set up his bike himself and thought things were fine until he started experiencing pain and didn’t know what to do about it. After being fit, he’s feeling comfortable and confident on his bicycle!
