Unless you live under a rock, if you ride a bike, you’ve doubtlessly been told how important a good “fit” is. Well, let me just say, I had no idea the true meaning of that phrase until last night.
On the recommendation of several “fast friends” (not to mention my sports chiro), I finally made an appointment with the King of the Fit, Tad Hughes. To say I was impressed with the process would be an understatement.
I had been “fit” on my bike before, but never had my personal body mechanics and structure been taken into account. Body marking with a green (and red, because I failed the first test) sharpie? Don’t mind if I do.
Although I’ve been procrastinating on this appointment for a while, I have been exchanging tweets with both Tad and his wife, Jessica for a few months. Here’s her reaction to my before and after pictures:
I’ll save a complete review until I’ve actually had time to ride my bike with the adjustments made, but since a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s the one linked in the tweet from Jessica.
