…..all potential consequences of a poorly fitting bike.
Cycle Dynamics provides clinically- and performance-orientated bike fitting services performed by an APA Sports Physiotherapist/Level 2 Cycling Coach and researcher in the field of cycling injury and bike fit. Whether you are recreational or competitive, amateur or elite, a cyclist or a triathlete, Cycle Dynamics can assist you in achieving your cycling goals by drawing on over a decade of experience as well as the best current evidence.
At Cycle Dynamics, every bike fit includes a review of your injury/medical history, cycling history, your goals, a physical/biomechanical screening and on-bike assessment, allowing each fit to be tailored to suit individual needs and physical capabilities.
The foundation of a good bike fit is a bike which fundamentally suits the rider’s physique, capabilities and intended use. For those who are looking to purchase a new bike “off-the-rack” or order a custom frame, Cycle Dynamics provides independent pre-purchase advice to ensure you get it right the first time and avoid potentially costly mistakes.
Cycle Dynamics also specialises in assisting riders who for one reason or another find it difficult to source an appropriate bike. Examples include:
- short and tall riders (<160cm and >190cm)
- significant structural or functional restrictions and asymmetries
- chronic musculoskeletal injuries/conditions
- neurological disorders
Cycling is a sport with a high prevalence of overuse injuries affecting multiple body regions. Managing non-traumatic cycling injuries effectively not only requires expertise in injury diagnosis and management, but also a detailed knowledge of the demands of the sport, the equipment, and how the human body and bike dynamically interact. There are certainly many excellent clinicians and bike fitters around but relatively few who are qualified and experienced in both realms.
Effective injury management begins with a taking a detailed history of the problem and conducting a thorough assessment both on an off the bike. Many problems can be significantly improved or resolved with adjustments in bike setup and advice regarding home management strategies and training modifications. Some issues may, however, require additional management such as manual therapy, strength & conditioning, taping, orthotics and/or referral to other health practitioners.
Cycle Dynamics will work with you to determine an appropriate management plan to get you back on the bike as quickly as possible, taking into account your individual preferences and resources.
