Awesome job on the fit.
You asked me to follow up with you after you made the changes to my Trek 2.1. I have not experienced any cramping in my calf since you made all the adjustments. I have been on 2 day 50-mile each day ride w/o any issues. Thanks for the assistance.
Thanks so so much!
OMG - just got back from my first outing on my new Trek Lexa SLX that you fitted for me yesterday...I am in LOVE! I was clipping in and out like a pro! So easy! The SIDI Mamba shoes feel like butter- super comfortable! I am so grateful to you for the time you spent with me yesterday! I really feel like the bike fits me beautifully. I had no problem with the gearing and all the pointers you gave me were extremely helpful! I just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping me turn a negative into a positive! I am looking forward to many miles of biking fun!
Zurich, had a PR for the race. That was cool.
An update on how the bike fit from the other week has gone. The summary is Great!
A couple of data points include the following: The evening after the fit I went for a 90 min ride. Had multiple 10 to 15 min intervals at threshold power (~260W) and then steady effort to finish out the 90 min. Overall was my highest average power ride ( 217 W) in about 3 months – legs felt good.
I think the telling ride was this last Saturday. I did a full 112 then bricked into a hour run for a race rehearsal day. I did the same ride back in early June in prep for IM CDA so have results to compare.
June ride old fit (had race wheels 808 front and back and aero helmet on)
112 miles, time 5:23, avg watts 181, NP = 185 VI = 1.02 avg HR = 120, avg Cadence = 88, avg temp 84.4
August ride , new fit ( training wheels and std helmet)
112 miles, time 5:13, avg watts 191, NP = 194 VI = 1.02 avg HR = 120, avg Cadence = 88, avg temp 82
So 10 more watts and no impact on HR! Stayed in the drops the whole time with my back and legs were all good. Transitioned into the run and legs were fine!
I think we have a good setup here – Let’s see if I can have a good run at IM LOU in 3 weeks.
Thanks for the help.
I want to thank you again for all the things you did to help me get back on the bike and be comfortable!! I had thought it was a lost cause before I came to you. I smile every day because I can ride my bike again, it has given back to me something I thought was lost. I've been riding a ton and having so much fun!!
Jess is jazzed about her new ride. I watched her at Forest Park on that windy day when you adjusted my bike and despite some huge south winds that were gusting @ 25+ mph she had great control... Even without the cup. The brake has been working great! No issues. It is a big improvement. Thank you for making this work!
Just wanted to say thanks again for the great job on the fitting last
Wednesday. I ended up putting 106 miles on the bike over the weekend
with none of the previous problems showing up. In fact the only pain I
experienced was caused by my need for a new saddle and pushing myself
after taking three weeks off.
I'll be in for a saddle when I get some funds set aside.
