FasCat performs bicycle fits as an extension of our coaching services. As coaches we hear first hand from athletes about knee, hip, & back pain that we can correct with a better bike fit. You do not need to be a FasCat athlete to get a FasCat bike fit.
Ann Trombley performs all of our fits blending 10 years of bicycle fitting experience with her physical therapy practice. Ann has a Masters Degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, and is a former professional mountain biker who represented the United States in the 2000 Olympic Games.
Our biomechanics lab is equipped with two video cameras for a front and side computerized motion analysis using the Dartfish software. We use video monitors to show athletes how they look while riding and the software to slow down and replay the pedal stroke. Dartfish enables us to double check our goniometer measurements including knee, hip and ankle positions. By slowing down and freezing the image we are able to see subtle movements that would otherwise go undetected.
