Time trialists, triathletes & those who aspire to be such: We’ll do free TT mentoring sessions on Legacy Pkwy Trail, weather permitting, November through January.
Good time of yr to work on flexibility & aero positioning. We’ll look at setup & offer suggestions for better efficiency, comfort & aerodynamics. We’ll also address bike handling skills.
If interested, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “TT” in Subject line.
Varus/valgus issues are an important aspect of footwear fit, as well as overall body alignment and proper positioning on a bike.
For cyclists, ITS wedges help to address common issues such as forefoot varus. There are certain situations where a rider has trouble accommodating an ITS wedge under the footbed inside the shoe. In that case, forefoot varus can be supported with a wedge between the shoe sole and pedal cleat.
It is important to understand that external wedges placed between the shoe sole and cleat are typically used to acoommodate overall foot varus, not just forefoot varus. Externally implemented wedges are used in combination with proper lateral cleat alignment as well as proper fore/aft positioning.
The amount of forefoot and overall foot varus need to be assessed then accounted for while working toward proper knee and hip alignment.
Hot spots are usually the result of improper cleat placement laterally or improper fore/aft placement, or a combination of both.

Proper biomechanics apply to all sports, not just bike fit.
Many of our athletes are trail and road running this time of year for run-specific fitness, cyclocross or triathlon conditioning, as well as cross-training for downhill and cross-country skiing, road cycling and mountain biking, etc.
Whatever your sport(s) of preference, the Pose Method® can prove indispensable to help reduce the risk of injury, and to make you a more comfortable and efficient human machine.

Be on the lookout for write-ups we’ll be posting regarding the importance of functional as well as fitness training.
