You've completed the didactic portion of the cycling content, and it's time to apply these concepts to a hands-on bike fitting. In this course, we'll work through 2 different patients, one on a traditional road bike fit, and the other on a triathlon bike fitting. We'll use their athletic goals, symptom history, and body assessment, to deliver an individual fit experience that improves postural alignment, optimizes the neuromuscular recruitment, and comfort on the bike. Throughout this course, we'll discuss the rationale for each change and intervention to integrate concepts throughout the cycling series, and ensure you can apply them to your unique patients and athletes.

1. Clinical Bike Fit: Road Bike

In this chapter Jay Dicharry performs a bike fit for a road bike with a female athlete. Follow this case study to better understand bike fitting for an athlete working toward competing in a triathlon for the first time.

2. Clinical Bike Fit: Time Trial Bike

The second case study shows a bike fit for a time trial bike with an elite male athlete. This case study provides insights into the special considerations for a serious athlete looking for optimal efficiency.

3. Clinical Bike Fit: Writing it Up

In this chapter, we’ll show you how to correctly document the changes you’ve made in contact points. This should be saved to have a record of your fit so that the patient can re-check their fit if breaking down the bike for maintenance or travel, or to transfer these measurements to a new bicycle in the future.
