New for Cycletime Customers - the Body Geometry FIT program

"To give everyone the best ride of their life." that's the idea behind Body Geometry FIT and what we are aiming for at CycleTime.

Our customers have been asking for it and now we can deliver the goods. CycleTime owners Dave Spring and Julie Paterson have recently completed the SBCU Body Geometry FIT course in Melbourne and the customer response has been phenomenal.

Our goal is to get our customers riding faster, longer, and in greater comfort while reducing chances of injury. The Body Geometry FIT program is the most comprehensive bike fit education in the industry. Working with Dr. Andy Pruitt and his team at the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine, the BG FIT process has been refined into a step by step fit method to deliver personal, hands on bike fit to help cyclists ride longer, faster and in greater comfort.

It is available exclusively to Specialized dealers. Body Geometry fit system works for anyone and with any brand of bike.

Call us today at CycleTime 07-8471-544 to book your appointment with Dave and Julie.

 

Process

1. Pre-Fit Interview

Every fit - whether it's for a novice or experienced cyclist - starts with a brief interview between our Body Geometry FIT staff member and rider that addresses the individual's injury history, needs and goals.

2. Flexibility Assignment

This evaluation gains an accurate picture of the individual's flexibility and other physical attributes, including assessment of foot structure, knee position, spinal curve, shoulder extension, hip flexion and leg length, among others.

3. Side View

Assessed using the side view of the rider, the goal is to deliver a correct neutral position that's both powerful and comfortable through adjustments to seat height, handlebar height, stem length and cleat position.

4. Front View

Analysis from frontal view to optimize hip, knee and foot alignment for greater performance and balanced power delivery. Includes analysis of pedal and shoe placement and squareness on the saddle.

5. Follow Up

After a week or so, the technician calls to discuss the effectiveness of the adjustments and to answer any other questions or concerns the rider may have.

Products

Gloves

Featuring a unique pad system, designed by ergonomics expert Dr. Roger Minkow, M.D., that helps reduce hand numbness (aka, cycling palsy) by relieving pressure on the ulnar nerve. Multi-density grips and bar coverings work together with BG gloves to improve comfort and endurance. Our palm construction, seam placement and premium materials optimize comfort and fit. We tune the size and location of the padding for riding position and experience. Our ergonomically shaped Body Geometry Gel padding dissipates pressure on the ulnar nerve to reduce numbness.

Shoes

Developed with Dr. Andy Pruitt of the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine, BG shoes and High Performance footbeds use built-in ergonomic features like the varus wedge, longitudinal arch, and metatarsal button to make the connection between body and bike more productive and more comfortable.

Saddles

Developed with ergonomics expert Dr. Roger Minkow, M.D., BG saddles and shorts use customized shapes, cut-aways and multi-density padding to reduce pressure on arteries and soft tissue for improved blood flow and comfort. The anatomically designed Body Geometry cut-out or groove takes pressure off arteries and soft tissue for improved blood flow and comfort. Pressure mapping research helps us determine areas of high/low pressure so we can optimize the design of each saddle. Since a properly sized saddle increases your comfort and power on the bike, Body Geometry saddles come in a range of widths to fit every rider. We design the shape of every saddle to complement the way you ride. Based on your position and preferences, you can find your match from a variety of flat, curved, and comfort saddles.

Footbeds

Medically tested Body Geometry footbeds were co-developed with Andy Pruitt, Director of the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine, to enable a semi-custom fit that improves efficiency, increases comfort and reduces potential injury. Built-in varus angulation improves pedaling alignment for greater power and endurance. Also prevents knee pressure and strain. Built-in arch support and metatarsal button eliminate hot spots and numbness and helps maximize your power transfer with proper arch support. Three distinct levels of arch and metatarsal support help you customize your fit.

Grips

Body Geometry triple-density ergonomic grips are anatomically designed to help cyclists ride longer by reducing hand numbness and fatigue. Suitable for commuting or MTB. Higher-density inner core for secure bar attachment. Flexible, ergonomically-shaped platform absorbs shock and disperses pressure. Medium-density body for secure grip. Medically designed by ergonomic specialist Dr. Roger Minkow to prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and cycling-related numbness/weakness of the hands, known as Cyclist's Palsy. Easily installed locking clamp with 3mm bolt head ensures secure attachment. Softest density in key contact area to cushion the ulnar nerve.
