Weight lifter turned cyclist here, I’ve been cycling for about two years now and now I’m chasing performance. Position on the bike is what was recommended to me using a Retul Fit system last year (Aug 2020) and a physio. No issues with my current fit except I feel like I could get some low hanging aero gains here. I’m coming back from a terrible off season so I’m trying to get the easiest marginal gains I can.
Info about myself (Currently at 171cm, 79kg @ 222w ). I have no previous injuries aside from general low flexibility from years of weight lifting. My rides range from 2-5 hrs normally.
Bike Fit results below (Only change is a 90mm stem):
Bike is a 52cm Vitus Vitesse Evo. 400mm bars w/ 170mm cranks. Bike measurements Below:
Here are some pics of my position:
Apologies for the low res, had to use my old laptop while I wait for a new webcam on the desktop.
What are my options?
- Play around with a longer stem to see if I can hold the position?
- Try slamming the stem to get lower?
- Work on my flexibility?
