The benefits of having a bike fitting on a mountain bike is different than that of a road bike. With a mountain bike your main concern is maximum power and handling. By having the saddle in the correct position you will transfer maximum power with minimum effort. Saddle position will vary depending on the style of riding that you do. The DVD explains three different options for saddle placement, and how you benefit from each.
After using The Bike Fitting Kit, you will learn how having a correctly fit mountain bike will enhance the handling characteristics of your bike. By being correctly positioned on your Mtn. bike you will have the correct ratio of your weight over the rear tire to assist in traction, and the correct amount of weight over the front tire for optimal handling in corners.
The DVD explains how to use the goniometer to determine correct torso angle so you can engage the largest muscle in your body and lighten the load on your quads. This will allow you to ride longer and faster without using more energy.
“After using the kit, I feel I have more power on the hill climbs, and it’s not taking as much power out of my legs.”
