World-Class Bike Fitting & Problem Solving in Spokane, WA
Paul Swift (Founder/Owner of CyclePoint & BikeFit) and Kit Vogel, PT, DPT, MS are actively booking bike fits in Spokane, WA for cyclists, triathletes and mtn of all levels (recreational, competitive, elite). Kit and Paul work with a few different local bike shops but are also available to bring the fit to you.
Why chose CyclePoint for your bike fit? Kit and Paul bring over 40 years of combined experience in biomechanical bike fitting and problem solving. They teach bike fitting world-wide (including the partnership SlowTwitch/F.I.S.T.) and have designed & manufactured many of the products used world-wide in bike fitting today, including cleat wedges, spacers, as well as the stem sizer and saddle changer. Both Paul and Kit help drive the national and international bike fitting industry and its continued progression and growth.
What does a bike fit include?
- A complete bike fit usually takes 2-2.5 hours and includes a follow-up 1-2 weeks after the initial bike fit.
- The fit includes a full dynamic digital assessment of the side and front views with the highly rated BikeFit App.
- Special attention is given to the contact points, including the foot-pedal interface, saddle and handlebars/stem (includes tri bars on tri bikes).
- The foot-pedal interface specifically addresses lower extremity biomechanics that create a wide variety of over-use injuries. Adjustment many include medial-lateral, fore-aft, canting wedges (inside/outside the shoe), inserts, rotation and (if needed) leg length correction.
- The stem sizer determines the proper length and angle of stem for the current bike.
- The saddle changer allows the cyclist to try multiple saddles in a very short period of time to select the best possible saddle for comfort, performance and the best possible spine/pelvic biomechanics possible while cycling.
Clinically, Kit addresses injuries both on and off the bike. Many cyclists start riding after being told, “You shouldn’t run anymore. Start riding your bike instead.” However, they may be miserable on their bike due to their current/past injuries or impending surgery (such as hip replacement/OA or knee surgery). Her biomechanical expertise and clinical mind-set keep people on their bikes and out of surgery as long as possible.
