Kinetic Bike Fitting
Who are we?
Between them, Ross Hamilton and Craig Lia have 15 years experience working in the bicycle industry.
Ross completed his studies in Osteopathy at Victoria University in 2014, Craig is currently studying.
Combining their knowledge as bike mechanics with the in depth anatomy and biomechanics training of an osteopath was a natural fit.
Both Ross and Craig race regularly. Craig competes in olympic distance triathlon and Ross races on the road and track.
Why is a bike fit important?
A proper fitting of your bike is important primarily to ensure comfort on the bike, prevent overuse injuries and maximise performance.
A cyclist riding ten hours a week can expect to do 50,000 pedals strokes per week. Combine this with the inherent asymmetries that we all have predisposes to developing overuse injuries when biomechanics are sub-optimal.
What can you expect?
A bike fit session is an extended consult of 2 hours duration. It involves an in depth review of your riding and injury history. Depending on your goals, flexibility, core strength and injuries your fit will be optimised to your own biomechanics with the aid of motion capture video analysis.
After your fit, you will be provided with a fit report detailing changes to your position and any other recommendations made.
Kinetic Bike Fitting provides full correspondence to any referring health professional to aid in ongoing injury management when relevant.
Parts, accessories and orthoses
While changes in position are enough for some patients, fitting accessories are often required.
Kinetic Bike Fitting keeps a stock of handlebars, head stems, saddles, cleats, leg length shims and orthoses.
