Why is setting up your bike so important? The question may seem rhetorical but you will be blown away, as I am, by the number of cyclists I meet weekly who question the need for a PERFECT set up.
So, why is a good setup so important?
- To create the perfect union between cyclist and bike. This results in maximizing power, mechanical efficiency and aerodynamics.
- Seat and position comfort improve dramatically. Comfort is critical because as soon as you are uncomfortable, even slightly, your performance suffers and your risk for injury increases.
A bike set-up is all about comfort, prevention of injuries and improving performance.
