New bike position by Team TBB’s Joseph.

My position before the fit, long and stretched out. Saddle is far back and bars high and long.

While Joseph is here at Sands Beach I thought it was the perfect opportunity to use his skills as a bit fitter and get him to look over my position.

The one thing he liked on my bike was the 3T brezzer bars with the 6cm spacer under the arm rests. I really like this set up as I feel it puts the base bar in a really good position for in and out of the saddle riding.

Jo would normally do this in his shop with the Retul system, but he had a few tools with him to measure joint angles and tape measure and plump lines to help too.

So below is the results of our fit. Photos aren’t great but the best we could do at 6pm at night and with the drug testers as guests as well:)

I am very happy with the results, it feels good and is more aero. Thanks Jo. Get in touch with him if you want a proper bike fit for your new bike.

Stretched out, not quite the superman position though:)!!

Progression 1, moved saddle forward, bars down and shorter with down ward stem. stem.[/caption]

Progression 1.

Progression 1. Forward and up in saddle. Lower and shorter in bars, with a different stem.

Final position. Lowered saddle from progression 1, tilted bars up. Final result being, much more aero and much more comfortable:)

Final position, front view relaxed aero.

Active aero position, lowered head and hunched shoulders:)
