Scott... the "Bike Whisperer"
It's been a while since you helped me with my track bike set up. But since you got me set up in a much more comfortable and aggressive set up, things feel much better. So much so that last weekend I managed 2 silver medals at the National championships in Masters A. Looking back on my racing this year over last, I realize just how much I was cutting off my diaphragm and limiting my breathing in my old set up. With your help and sponsorship to the team this year I was able to reach my potential, so thank you for that.
I have been telling a few riders at the track about the work you did with my set up and I couldn't be happier with it. Hopefully you get a few new track bike setups as a result.
Any ways thank you again for your help and let me know if you want any testimonial or content for your website. I'd be happy to help since you have helped me so much.
Took the bike out a couple of times now. Wow what a difference.
Bye bye neck strain (for the most part), and the lower back issue I was having is gone. I used to get off the bike after 40k and be bent over, because it was too painful to straighten my back at first. Now I simply get off the bike, and my back does not feel tight.
Definitely a big improvement in general.
I am looking forward to getting those before and after adjustment sheets you mentioned, as I now am hooked on to the power of proper fitting.
Thanks so much Scott,
I went on a 1.5h loop up Royal York that I like to do in the mornings. It was magical! Not even a trace of pain in my knee or anywhere else for that matter. I feel very connected to the bike and all that stuff people always say, but what I couldn’t really tell during our session was how much better my spin is.
As you know, I ride fixed gear, descending is so fluid now. I always used to feel like I was fighting the bike trying not to bounce during fast spins, now it feels like the air is all that’s holding me back. Spinning is the best part of riding fixed gear on the road and now thanks to you my spin has gotten 10 times better!
Finally, another aspect that wasn’t so clear during the session is how much better being out of the saddle feels now. I guess with the longer stem and improvements you did with my feet, whatever the case, it feels very natural to be out of the saddle now, I’m not fighting the bike all the time and straining to move my feet into the right position.
I’m looking forward to finally be able to get into the season and start bringing on the hours again!
Thanks and take care,
