Gary G. - Who Knew Millimeters Could Produce Profound Results?
I've been riding road bikes since 1983 and enjoyed seasons of racing, touring across North America, and being that weekend warrior Cycling is a passion of mine. I love pushing myself physically, mentally, and getting that satisfaction that I can still accomplish my goals. Through the years, I have undergone several bike fits to resolve a myriad of issues. Four years ago, I was fitted on my road bike in an aggressive bike position that resulted in a severe case of varicose veins in my left leg. After surgery and extensive physical therapy, I was searching for a professional fitter that would consider all aspects of bike fitting coupled with physical flexibility and core strength. That is when I met the team at Cyclologic in 2015 (Paraic Claudia, Barry, Adam, Steve, and RJ). The fitting experience was first-rate because they listen to the customer's goals, collect the critical data from the customer and bike, and educate the customer on the necessary steps for a better fit (core strengthening, improve flexibility, and selecting the correct equipment and frame).
Fast forward to 2018 and it's been three years since I got fitted. I was experiencing consistent pain in my knees and couldn't figure out why I was in such pain. I tried stretching, massages, and weight training with no improvements. I reached out to Barry for an assessment to find out that my muscular structure was too strong in one direction and that I had to work on other strengthening exercises coupled with millimeter changes to my saddle. Three weeks of riding in this new position has allowed me to consistently sit comfortably at the back of the saddle, which has resulted in improving my normalized power by 10-15 watts. I had no idea that my bike riding had become so inefficient. I've learned a valuable lesson that as you improve your fitness, periodic bike fittings can yield massive results. Thank you Cyclologic for the top notch customer service!!
