Bike fitting is much more than finding the optimal position on the bike. By analyzing the movement of the body, data from EMG and power meter, differences in muscle activation are often highlighted. A core strength exercise routine can help to improve muscle control and overall cycling technique.
Body movement analysis is a bike fitting phase to collect information that together with physical evaluation often explain asymmetries in movements, sensorimotor differences and imbalances in muscle mass. In this case a functional leg length difference affect the pelvis stability/movement.
Distribution of body weight on the bike improves sustainability, performance and reduce discomforts and risk of injuries.
