IN PERSON COURSES

LEARN. TRY. GET FEEDBACK.
BIKE FIT LEVEL 1

This 2 day Level 1 program will cover all the skills necessary to conduct a professional bike fit for a road cyclist. This includes examination of and required adjustments to saddle height, saddle fore/aft, cockpit length, handlebar drop and handlebar position. In addition, at Bike Fit Canada we believe that the foot pedal interface is the foundation for the cyclist. That is why we will be teaching what it takes to evaluate the pedal stoke and determine whether any cleat adjustments are needed. This is a critical contact point for the cyclist one that is often over looked, not at Bike Fit Canada.

The Level one course is held at the in North Vancouver and at JoyRide 150 in Markham Ontario. But, if you are a bike shop, coach or physiotherapist looking to enroll the course can be held at your place of business. Although specific calendar dates are being offered we also have the ability to schedule a date so that it meets the needs of you and your employees. For more information on private in house course please contact Bike Fit Canada.

Bike Fit Canada will provide a certificate indicating that they have completed the Level 1 course and your name and place of business will be added to the find a fitter page on the Bike Fit Canada web site.

If you have any additional questions about Bike Fit Education please don’t hesitate to contact us.

BIKE FIT LEVEL 2

The Level 2 course builds on the information that is presented during the Level 1 course. BikeFit Canada strongly recommends doing Level 1 prior to enrolling for Level 2.

The Level 2 Advanced Fit course would suit any Professional bike fitter looking to increase knowledge and improve skills when it comes to problem solving and more advanced fit techniques. Level 1 provides a strong foundation for understanding the cyclist cockpit and what is needed to make the changes for a more comfortable efficient position. During the Level 1 a great deal of fucus was on the side view perspective, during the level 2 we will be looking at some of the advanced changes that are possible. 

The Front view pedal stroke assessment has always been something that BFC believes in. So often this perspective is overlooked during the Bike Fit. During the Level 1 we learned about the Fore-aft, medial lateral and rotation adjustments. When you take the Level 2 we will introduce wedging, Leg Length discrepancies and we will explore other influences on the pedal stroke such as the actual fit of the shoe plus learning more about after market foot beds. This will also allow us to learn more about Speedplay pedals and other after market longer spindle products.

BFC will also introduce the rear-view perspective, looking at the pelvis and what roll it plays while cycling. The Saddle and the Pelvis are very much connected so we are going to take a deep dive into the saddle world looking at how one interfaces with the other. We will also take it one step further as we begin to examine the pedal stroke and connect what we see to the pelvis and how these to contact points are connected. The rear view is usually completely overlooked, at BFC we would consider this an advanced aspect of bike fitting.

Other topics to be presented are;

  • Saddle Fit - Finding the right seat

  • Rear View – Examination of cyclist while pedaling (Pelvic evaluation)

  • Advanced foot Pedal adjustments

  • Speedplay Pedals – Learning about longer spindle products

  • Crank Arm Length – Shorter vs. Longer

  • Aero Dynamics

  • Shoe Fit – LAKE cycling shoes

  • Stack and Reach - Lets talk frame size
