Professional  Cycling  Analysis

BIKE FIT

Your Bike Fit session will include a comprehensive examination of your biomechanics off and on the bike by a licensed physical therapist and movement expert.  

​VeloFit, LLC is the only professional bike fitting service in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area that is fully serviced by a Doctor of Physical Therapy.  Therefore, we are able to provide a proper orthopaedic and musculoskeletal examination off the bike prior to making any adjustments on the bike.  We fit the bike to the individual using a fully integrated movement assessment that will translate to efficient and pain-free performance on the bike.

VeloFit was founded to bridge the gap between the body and the bike.  We feel that every client deserves the right to be empowered on and off the bike.  The knowledge of the biomechanics of the human body and the care that is received with each fitting is what makes VeloFit unique.  By having a Physical Therapist guide you through the process of a proper bike fit, you can trust that your body's comfort and performance is the number one priority.

Kur holds a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from Marymount University and is trained with BikeFit® system and is the first in the region to be ISCO (International School of Cycling Optimization) certified through the Advanced Contact Point Analysis course.

COMFORT

Why  Should   i   Perform  A  Bike Fit?


Improve comfort

Increase performance and efficiency 

Decrease pain and risk of injury 

Adjust current bike to the unique aspects of an individual’s body mechanics


GEAR

What Should I Bring ?

Bicycle - Clean and in good working condition
Cycling Clothing - Bike shorts and jersey (form fitting clothes)
Cycling Shoes - Clean and dry. If you have old worn out cycling shoes or cleats now is the time to replace them. If you have recently purchased       new cycling shoes please bring your old pair as they can assist with gathering information about cleat set up. 

BIKE & BODY INTERACTION

PT  perspective

Other bike fitters may offer comprehensiveness in the sense of positioning a client on the bike and making adjustments based on ideal                     measurements, but are not able to offer the off-bike analysis of the rider’s musculoskeletal condition and provide treatment plans to address related problem areas.  Ideal measurements are only one part of the equation.  The relationship between the bike and rider are an integral part of a successful bike fit
 
​Bike fitting done with us will provide a relationship that you can maintain to achieve your goals.  We are not in the business of selling you bikes.     The advantage of working with a PT is that you can have the option to receive follow up-sessions to help you achieve your goals.  Bike fit follow-   ups (if needed) would include: 

*Recheck and progression of your corrective exercises

*Manual therapy work to address restrictions and mobility deficits

*Progressing pedal mechanics on the bike for improved efficiency

 

*** In addition to the services provided above, We also offer follow up treatments to address any pain or limitations found during the assessment   due to overtraining, post surgical rehabilitation and/or power output issues on or off the bike.
