State of the Art Technology - Bike Fit Toys and Tools
Revolutions in Fitness uses the latest technology to get the analytic data we need to thoroughly understand your biomechanics. We have invested over $50,000 in bike fit equipment. Our licensed medical training lets us interpret the data and use it to evaluate different positions effectively. Our current arsenal of toys and tools includes:
GebioMized (GEE-be-oh-MYZ-ed) is a German pressure sensor system that provides a real-time 3-D map of all three contact points on the bike, including:
GebioMized helps us minimize painful pressure points and gives us invaluable feedback on shoes, cleats, and even saddle height.
Retül 3-D Bike Fit System is a state-of-the-art 3-D motion capture system that collects dynamic biomechanical measurements of every moving body angle with sub-millimeter accuracy. It is the only bike fit system that allows the rider to be measured while pedaling under force.While you pedal, the Retül system gathers data from eight key anatomical points in your riding position.
Using the data, Retül is able to accurately profile your existing angles and quantitatively map out the ideal angles and precise adjustments they are trying to achieve with your bike fit.
Dartfish 2-D Video Motion Capture Systems is a multi-camera based system that offers dynamic athlete feedback during and after the fitting; for instance, to provide a graphic if one knee flares out to the side during the pedal stroke. Our background in sports medicine helps us understand the source of eccentric knee flare, whether it stems from the knee, the foot, the hip, or somewhere else. This system helps us provide suggestions about technique, in addition to bike fit.
CompuTrainer SpinScan provides pedal efficiency & assessment for power analysis.
X/Y Size Fit Bike for size fit service is used to easily document a rider's position by describing the position of the handlebars and saddle relative to the bottom bracket, as well as measuring the reach and stack of a frame. This position reference information may be used to translate a fit position from the XY Fit Bike to other stock or custom bikes.
Garmin Vector Power Pedals are an amazing new technology that we helped Garmin to develop. They measure power in each pedal spindle, they weigh about the same as a regular pedal, and they are easy to switch between bikes. We use them in our bike fits and offer them for sale to our clients.

PowerCranks by isolating right and left leg movements while you pedal, reveal a lot about imbalances and inefficiencies and give you instant feedback to make you a smoother and more effective cyclist.
Traditional Tools like a plumb bob, protractor, level, and tape measure also provide useful information to the savvy bike fit pros at RIF.
Using the Data
We don't just have the equipment... we understand how to interpret the data. Besides certification for just about every bike fit system available, our professional cycling analysts have extensive training in sports medicine and years of clinical and personal cycling experience.
Using the latest technology, the data, and our clinical experience, we can accurately profile your existing bike and body angles and quantitatively determine the optimized new geometry to help you realize your cycling dreams.
