Trek Precision Fit

Last week I had the pleasure of having a bike fit with Matt Gehling of Trek Precision Fit out at Trek HQ in Waterloo, WI. TPF is science and number based yet takes comfort into consideration. Using a stationary bike fitting tool, we made a few changes to my fit.


The first was we switched to a new saddle. Matt used pressure mapping to show that I was putting a lot of pressure on the nose of my previous saddle. I am now switching over to the Bontrager Hilo XXX and you can see from the before and after pictures below that the Hilo distributes my weight a lot more evenly.

We also moved my knee over pedal spindle back to take some weight off my arms and open up the chest yet maintain the aero position more comfortably.

The deliverable was a detailed report with an analysis on my new fit and why we made the changes we did along with photos to show changes in angles.

If you haven’t had a chance to get fit I highly recommend it. My fit with Matt will result in a more aero and more comfortable position for 2015. For those who live in the Madison area, TPF is available at the Madison Trek Stores. I have had a number of athletes see the specialists at the Madison Stores and have had great results.
