JIMI BROCKET TEAM RIDERS FOR RYDER
NO MORE KNEE PROBLEMS
Hi Rob, Things are doing great! I did a club ride of 100km last week and planning to do another 100km tomorrow morning. Things feel solid. My left knee feels like it’s bomb proof, zero issues. My right gives me the slightest tingle AFTER 70 km so I think things are fantastic. Thank you for the kind and much appreciated follow up email. Says a lot about how much you care about the athletes you work with. I know I definitely made the right decision seeing you with regards to my bike fit. In the mean time, I’ll just keep riding and working on my weak/tight muscular issues. I’ll definitely let you know if I have any further issues, but as of now everything is solid. Cheers, A.L.
SMALL ADJUSTMENTS LEAD TO BIG IMPROVEMENTS
Good Morning Rob. I was in for a bike fit a few weeks ago and the changes are aaaaaaaaaamazing! What a difference a few mms here and there make. Super duper grateful to have it done as my riding is sooooo much more comfortable!C.B.
Hello Rob, The 2 bike fitting experiences I received resulted in entirely different outcomes. My first opportunity to participate in a bike fitting was on the Guru Bike Fitting system but with a very different approach than what I received through your services at Catalyst Kinetics Group. The most noticeable difference was the ‘mechanical’ approach to the bike fitting process at my first fitting. The machine was heavily relied upon to produce a final report although there were some adjustments based on my personal feedback. Measurements were done solely on a mechanical basis whereas with your process the individualized sizing of my body was much more exact and accurate. In addition, incremental adjustments were far more precise. This of course produced significant differences in the outcome of recommended fit for a road bike. As we discussed in our fitting session, the accuracy of measurements for each specific individual is critical in the fitting process in order to maximize the best possible ride in terms of comfort, reduced risk of injury and sustainability for longer rides. I would highly recommend the more individualized and precise fitting in a setting such as Catalyst Kinetics Group. The right equipment; the right person, and the operating knowledge equal a great riding experience. Sincerely, K.W.
KNEES FEEL GREAT
Hi Rob, Thanks again for the fit last night, went out for a 22km blitz this evening and everything felt great with the positioning and the knee. Got a KOM I’ve been working on for a couple of seasons now.I meant to take it easy, but the bike just feels like it wants to go faster and I obliged.So Kudos to you.D.T
Hi Rob, Thanks for the fit. I can honestly say that my last two rides have been the best I have felt on my bike for about 2 years. I know you wanted me to go easy, but I put in a reasonable effort up cypress last night and there was a huge improvement. I’m delighted with the effects of the adjustments so far, although I’m yet to change my stem (having said that, simply raising the bars has helped with the numbness quite considerably). As I said to you on Monday, I’m extremely busy over the next few weeks, but I’ll find a time to re-visit you once things are a little quieter and I’ve had more time on the new position. Thanks, J.M
THANK YOU FOR YEARS OF KNOWLEDGE
I have known Rob Wright for a few years now. He helped me get set up on my first road bike when I was just starting out. Rob is very thoughtful and meticulous and has always available when I needed a little tweaking here and there as I became adjusted to the bike. After a year on my first bike, I purchased a custom bike from Rob. We spent some time making sure I was measured correctly and that the fit felt comfortable. I loved the bike and it has been great since I got it. Rob listens to the clients needs so he can give the best fit possible. I have since gone back to Rob for minor adjustments and he has been so helpful. I also love the fact he has state-of-the-art equipment so I know I am getting the best fit possible. I would recommend anyone who is getting into cycling or hasn’t had their bike properly adjusted to get a bike fit from Rob. It makes all the difference. “Thanks!M.G.
WORDS FROM THE DOCTOR
Being an older road cyclist with the inevitable problems associated with aging, I did not think that a professional bike fitting would be of much benefit to me. In the past I have had the traditional bike fittings and adjustments but as time has passed the usual “rules of thumb” and recommended metrics don’t work for the older (impaired) cyclist. I considered a custom frame to get a more comfortable fit. Rob’s fitting gave me an unexpected benefit. Using the fitting system he was able to find the best geometry for me based on comfort rather the than using a calculated ideal geometry. Going to the web sites of various manufactures we were able to find an almost perfect match for the geometry without having to go to a more expensive custom frame which would be no better. In my case the best fit was a TREK Domane. The frame choice was very good and turned out to be ideal without making further adjustments. It is apparent that high level fittings are beneficial for elite athletes but also helpful for those with various physical impairments. G.M M.D.
