A BALANCING ACT BETWEEN PEDALLING EFFECTIVENESS AND SADDLE STABILITY

I came across the pressure mapping technology used in cycling biomechanics years ago over a webinar, but it didn’t really get my attention as I just couldn’t find any published evidence on validity and reliability of those measurements. Things changed last year on Eurobike, where I met Lotte and Daniel from GebioMized. 

 

MASTER CLASSES IN CAEN, FRANCE 2016 – TECHNOLOGY, INJURIES & SCIENCE

We are delighted to be actively involved by organising a special master class with an aim to bridge the technology and cycling science.  Advanced diagnostics systems, including force pedals, pressure mapping, 3D kinematics and EMG, will be practically and theoretically presented in a context of cycling analysis. 

 

CYCLING BIOMECHANICS OPTIMISATION

Whoa ... what does that phrase even mean? For starters, it’s so vague - just the term ‘biomechanics’ is so broad that it would be almost impossible to cover every single interpretation of its meaning! So, with this post, I’d like to explain what is meant by ‘cycling biomechanics optimisation’, and also to present a case study of a cyclist with initial poor biomechanical performance. 

 

REDEFINING THE DEFINITION OF BIKE FITTING

Type "bike fitting” in to Google, and you will most likely get more the 7 million hits. But what does bike fitting actually mean? If you were to ask the average bicycle retailer, you would probably get an answer something along the lines of setting up the seat height. On the other hand, if you were to ask a sport scientist the same question, you should be enlightened to the following definition: "Bike fit is a process of changing body position by adjusting bike parts to achieve an interaction between a number of variables – such as exercise economy, mechanical/metabolic efficiency, and comfort – to minimise resistive forces and maximise bicycle velocity while at the same time reduce the risk of injury occurrence.” It sounds very complex and difficult to comprehend but, in reality, it is very simple: a bike fit should make cyclists faster, safer and/or more comfortable. Although the aims are clear, the process of actually undertaking a bike fit is not that simple.
