I will be bringing my bike fitting services to the Tampa/St Pete area from Dec 14th through Jan 5th. I have worked with a few SWAMPers such as Harvey Minton and Kurt Leverette, but my services are not just for racers. More power to climb the hills and more comfort in general are things riders of all levels can appreciate. Do not let knee, neck or back pains from riding go unchecked. Numb hands? I can help there too. You can spend a lot of money swapping stems and replacing pedal systems just to find they did not fix your issue or have caused a new one. I can help eliminate those steps and having riding stronger, longer and with more comfort in just a few hours.
Why is a 55nine Performance bike fit better?
There is no such thing as a position on the bike. Cycling is not a static movement, it's dynamic. So why would you obtain a bike fit that measures you while you are holding still? With a 55nine Performance Laser-Precision Bike Fit, you will be "speed-balanced" on your bike. This means that all the calculations that are done behind the scenes take into account skeletal movement, forces, and angles while you are in motion. We will take specific measurements of your body, and your bike, and use the Wobble-Naught system to produce a blueprint. We will then follow the blueprint precisely, to fit your bike to you. Our fit maintains your personal skeletal integrity while aligning your muscles for their best line of pull. Remember: your bones are your leverage, and your muscles only pull. So why not make use of those bones and quit wearing out your body needlessly?
better leverage = increased potential= increased horsepower = better cycling
55nine Performance's philosophy is to "keep it simple, but not oversimplify". If the front end of your car is not aligned, the best tires in the world will wear out. Think about this in terms of your body! With your new 55nine Performance Laser-Precision fit, you will be moving in your optimal range of motion on the bike, meaning less microtraumas to your tissues (less soreness), allowing you to ride more and recover faster. Comfort works, and the proof is in the results. You can learn more about 55nine Performance at our website.
If you are interested in a fitting or would like to give the gift of a proper fitting bike as a Christmas present, you can reach me at 404 432 5841 or eddie at 55ninePerformance.com. Fittings cost $165, though we do offer a 15% discount for each addition bike fit during the same session (this offer is for single person only). The first fitting will take about 2 hours and will include a skeletal assessment, a blueprint, the bike set up and technique assessment and teaching. Each addition fit will take about 1.5 hours. We can fit road, mountain, track, tri, time trial and cyclocross bikes.
The locations of the fittings will be based on were the demand is. I am currently securing sessions in Lakeland, Tampa and St Pete. I will do what I can to accommodate all those who have an interest.
I look forward to riding with the SWAMPers again. See you on the trails,
