General Information

General Information: I've been a practicing physical therapist since 1997 and have been doing bike fits since 2000. I've had a Retul unit for a number of years now (since 2007) as well as a Gebiomized 3D Saddle pressure system. My fit process is focused on the rider from a functional movement standpoint and fitting each rider in the manner they best match their bike -- not according to some formula or what's deemed "appropriate" by some weekend bike fit class.

I do a full functional movement screen and assessment, along with a detailed history. From there we use the Retul infrared system to take our first round of measurements and at the same time get saddle pressure data from the Gebiomized unit. This is unique because I can determine how the pelvis is moving on the saddle, what portion of the pelvis is contacting as well as objective quantifiable (measured in psi, kPa, mmHg, etc) pressure information theat lets us know exactly how you're loading your seat. Based on this, we make changes to your fit and re-test until we're happy with the results.

*I also include all follow up appointments for an entire year -- I don't want there to be any barrier to a client coming back in for minor tweaks.*

I did my first triathlon in 1994 and my first Ironman in 2000 so I fit from a perspective of someone who has been on the bike as well as long distance mtb races (Leadville 100) and solo 24-hour races.

There are few places in the world where you get this combination of experience, educational background, and technology.

Drop me a line or call to chat and ask questions. Thanks.
Directions: Leaving downtown Grand Junction, head west on Grand Ave. Once you cross the Colorado river, you'll take a right at the next light (Monument/Power Rd). Power Rd takes you behind the Albertson's grocery store, take a left at the fork and you'll see the building on your left hand side....unit #4
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."
