We've revamped our Bike Fitting service at Podium Sports Medicine, and we think you'll like it. There is no more comprehensive service available! We have two products, both of which address a specific need cyclists have when scheduling a bike fit.
Additionally, we're excited to partner with Smokey's Mobile Bicycle Repair during these fit sessions. Every year bikes become faster, more intricate, and harder to work on. We will now have a professional mechanic onsite to make adjustments to the bike and ensure your ride is well cared for. Smokey's is a full-service mobile bike shop, providing the same service and many of the same products that you'd find at your local shop...but they come to you.
Bike Fits at Podium are highly specialized and time-intensive. You will work with at least three professionals throughout the process. These fits are not for everyone! But if you want to get the most out of your time in the saddle, or if you just want to ride without pain, we can get you on the right path.
Performance Fit ($450)
Our Performance Fit ensures you get the most out of your position on the bike. You will start with a full Functional Movement Screen so that we can better understand your body's strengths and limitations with regard to both mobility and stability issues. You'll then undergo MuscleSound scanning to assess for any imbalances at a muscular level. Only after gathering this information, you'll get on the bike and begin to undergo video analysis using our Dartfish software.
Often times a bike fit comes down to a few positions that could all reasonably work for a rider. In such a situation we can use our Computrainer and lactate testing to determine the physiologic cost of different positions. If you can hold 250 watts at 2.0 mmol of lactate in one position, but your lactate at 250 watts is 3.5 mmol in another, then you'll want to chose the most physiologcially efficient position.
Medical Fit ($350)
Medical Bike Fits are designed to address a specific ache or pain experienced on the bike. The goal of this service is pain-free riding. You will start with a full Functional Movement Screen so that we can better understand your body's strengths and limitations with regard to both mobility and stability issues. Careful attention will be paid to your biomechanical limitations and the optimization of your movement on and off the bike.
