We all know that strengthening our bodies can improve our pain management when done correctly. Wrench Ride and Roost in Moab, Utah, is dedicated to proper bicycle fitting that can help to reduce pain, improve strength, and even boost the aid of using the bike as rehabilitation.
If you have chosen your bike, Lawrence will help you next with an amazing fit. With these numbers, you can also purchase a new bike, based on mechanical advantage. The first adjustments are for the contact points. Cleat position on your shoe determines the starting point for all the other adjustments. Saddle height, fore-aft, and angle, and finally reach to the handlebars, all adjusted to meet your body dimensions perfectly. Modern seat posts offer two common positions for holding the saddle—one with zero offset and another being 2+centimeters offset. This option helps to get the knee over the pedal while increasing the mechanical advantage, and helping to relieve strains on the lower back, Achilles tendons, hamstrings, and the sit bones...meanwhile unlocking the body to perform.
Most people use bikes for fitness, and everyone will run into aches and pains at some point. By following some guidelines, you can eliminate the pain that accompanies an improper fitting bike. It's always wise to take care of being well placed on the bike before problems arise. For instance, incorrectly placed saddles can lead to lower back pain, neck pain, numb hands, cramping calves, etc. Having a saddle that cradles your skeleton, without pitching you onto your hands, is essential.
