How to Fit a Bicycle / Como montar uma Bicicleta

Tem alturas que as dores de costas afectam a cíclica e a performance do atleta. Maior parte das vezes e’ simplesmente porque a posição na bicicleta não é a ideal, originando más posições e defeitos que no decorrer dos treinos e provas afectar o rendimento e poderão inclusivamente provocar lesões crónicas.

Bicycle fitting is a subject most people find quite mysterious. Fitting systems with charts and graphs, computer software, measuring devices and “rules of thumb” make for a lot of confusion and is very expensive, at least for me (around 3000 hkd). But it’s really quite simple, just go to internet :). Bicycle fit involves compromises. Compromises between comfort and performance, quick acceleration and handling stability, top speed and “taking in the scenery”.

Your body’s position on the bike affects how you ride. It affects how much power you can efficiently deliver to the pedals. It affects how comfortable you are on the bike. A position that is more comfortable may not allow you to put as much energy into moving the bike forward as a less comfortable position might. How do you decide where to position your body on the bike?

These videos relates only to traditional road bicycles and simple but important tips of fitting the bike to your body. they don’t have reference of the using “aero bars”, which allow the rider to rest his forearms on the handlebars and for Ironmans is the way to have a better average in the bike session. More time in the “aero bars” better time in the bike.
