You're about to get an insider view of exactly how pro cyclists and triathletes get a bike fit using the fanciest bike technology on the planet. It's called the “Retul bike fit”, and here's how they describe it on their Retul website:
“Fit data collected in a traditional two-dimensional plane (i.e. video-based systems) is fairly limited because the fitter can only look at one view at a time, and those views stand as independent reference points. In order to make the best fit recommendations, the fitter must realize that the front and side views are actually interdependent reference points. In other words, the front and side views must be viewed simultaneously in three dimensions in order to see how all the applicable movements of the body are working together. Retul uses a 3D motion sensor to simultaneously gatherdata on multiple angles of the rider.”
Good news. I'm going into the Retul Bike Fit center in Boulder, Colorado on today at 9am PST, and you get to watch LIVE below as I ask them to make my bike fit my body *perfectly*, and they do the entire Retul bike fit. If you want to ask your questions on a LIVE chat Q&A, simply click here to go the the my Justin.tv video channel, where there is a chat box.
