What Is Bike Fitting ? It Will Help You To Maintain Your Riding State?

blobWith the development of the domestic bicycle market, road vehicles have gradually replaced mountain bikes and become the favorite bicycle type of domestic consumers. Whether it is various large-scale bicycle riding activities or daily cycling, it is more and more easy to see the figure of road vehicles. There is a wide range of people riding road bicycles, from teenagers'fresh meat to retired elders, both men and women can see people riding road bicycles. They generally believe that road biking is faster than mountain biking on the road, and handsome road bikes are especially handsome.

   In the daily riding process, some riders will feel uncomfortable symptoms of their body, including palmar paralysis, ankle pain, back pain, knee joint pain and so on. Perhaps they think that this is just the "excessive symptoms" caused by the various maladjustments from the original bicycle after the purchase of a highway car. As long as they get used to it, they can overcome the above maladjustment symptoms, but in fact, this view is wrong. Because road bicycle is a very data-intensive movement, through accurate and effective data, to adjust the riding posture and position in the process of cycling, according to the requirements of the rider to adjust the size and data of the road bicycle, so that the rider can bear the range, to adjust the road bicycle to the most suitable riding state for the rider.


For most people, they buy road vehicles, according to the original point of view, they may buy large, medium and small specifications of the frame, and then in the process of riding, constantly through the body's feelings, to adjust the cushion, handle, bend angle and so on. This road vehicle adjustment is actually fitting, but it is a very simple static fitting.

   Bike fitting is a program that allows cyclists to better maintain their state in the most comfortable road vehicle data and reduces all kinds of bicycle problems caused by inappropriate posture or size. According to the previous law, fitting can adjust the highway bicycle to the most comfortable riding state, but with the continuous development of competitive sports, many riders now require fitting to be based on the maximum output power, so as to help riders optimize energy output and improve endurance to achieve the unity of pedestrians and bicycles. This data fitting method can select the frame geometry and size suitable for different riders according to their requirements. With the increasing popularity of fitting knowledge, a more accurate and effective dynamic fitting has emerged.

 As the first Chinese in China to compete in the three major competitions around France and Italy, Ji Cheng once said to bike fitting: "I like bike fitting's motion detection very much. I have not changed my riding posture since I started riding, but through the motion detection, I know that only a small adjustment of the bicycle structure can greatly improve my riding posture and pedal frequency efficiency. And I also learned that my treading efficiency is already very high, which makes me more confident.

With the continuous development of fitting business, every bicycle dealer has launched a very specific fitting system. Shimano, the largest bicycle component manufacturer, began to develop a bike fitting system at an early stage. At present, there are three main types: static testing, dynamic testing, and tread frequency analyzer.

Dynamic mode: bike fitting dynamic detection can optimize the static data of the whole rider, such as specific data, action range, flexibility, riding mode, etc. Generally speaking, dynamic detection is divided into two modes. The first mode is guided mode, which allows the software to improve the quality and stability of rider analysis service by using built-in biomechanical knowledge and professional technology. The second mode is advanced mode, which allows riders to obtain all data (such as joint angle and length) and apply the knowledge and skills learned in training courses to riders. The posture is fine-tuned.


Tread Frequency Analyser: This is a cycling simulator with 3D tread analysis settings. It can adjust the bicycle by using the data of static detection and analysis. The simulator has the function of quick release and adjustment of handlebars and seats, and is an ideal tool for testing and selling bicycle accessories. Location data copying tools allow you to install bicycles accurately based on project-calculated data, as well as copy existing frame geometry data. The integrated 3D trample analyzer can record performance and efficiency. In addition, trampling analysis helps to identify asymmetrical parts of the trampling technique. These analyses can provide proper training plans for riders and improve symmetry. Of course, this must be through professional Shimano fitting detector material, in order to fully and accurately detect the professional fitting of cyclists.
