General Information

General Information: We are the exclusive user of the ground breaking Air Athletics tecnology - enabling us to measure your CdA in real time. Our fit process is very dynamic, and one that's been developed over several years. We don't believe in taking measurements and then relying on math equations, or packaged software, to tell us how a person should fit to a bike, nor do we believe that every person should be fit to their bike exactly the same way. We believe the human body works withing certain biomechanical parameters and wants to work properly. Its an amazing machine - adaptive to a degree with its skeletel structure, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, all able to perform well within ranges of motion. There is no one saddle height that's correct, no specific measurement for handlebar reach or height, no single cleat position for every foot. Rather, there are "ranges" we work within to place our clients properly based on their individual needs, abilities, physical history, body makeup, and goals.

We believe bike fit should be a combination of science, technology, and art. Science tells us how the body works, technology is utilized to make sure the body is performing correctly, and the art of bike fit comes from the ability to communicate, instruct, and understand that sometimes the "rules" have to be broken, or at least bent a little, to allow for the uniqueness of each client.
Directions: Located inside the VELO Sports Center (a US Olympic Training Site) on the campus of The Home Depot Center.
Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
