Who Are We?
Tim Carolan is the owner/operator of CycleFit Solutions. Specializing in the Wobble-Naught precision bike fit system which includes Road, Tri, TT and Mountain bikes along with Cyclesoles custom cycling orthotics (the lightest most state of the art available today) Tim Is a category one rider who has 25 years experience in the bicycle industry and an equal number of years riding at the elite level. He understands the requirements of spending long periods of time on the bike at low and high intensity day after day for training and racing. Maximizing strength and staying injury free is the number one goal.
Wobble-Naught (WN) precision bike fitting system
Price for a WN fit are $250 (time is around 2 ½ hours)
One of the things that convinced me to choose the WN fit system was having the fit done on myself about 8 years ago and in the process I not only became more comfortable and efficient on the bike but also educated about bike fit myth and truth proven by scientific methods to actually made me a better rider and maximize my fitness. The WN fit system starts by recording 22 measurements from the bike and body to eliminate as much guess work as possible. Setting up the bike to make you more comfortable is only the first part of the fit and were allot of others stop. The next part of the process is explaining it all to the rider, the better they are educated the more confident they have in the changes to allow the body to be accustomed to the new position which takes about 30 days to fully adapt although riders usually feel more comfortable the very first ride. The next part of the fit is showing the rider the correct way to pedal the bike and become even stronger more efficient by firing the most effective muscle groups.
Finally once we have everything on the bike set up we record all the measurements to give you a future baseline if changes need to be made or if additional bikes need to be set up.
Cyclesoles custom foot beds
Price for full custom Cyclesoles are $250 (24 to 48 hr turnaround)
At 14 grams a pair the materials used to make cyclesoles are the lightest most custom available today.
Price for semi custom Cyclesoles are $100 (30min process)
Since Cyclesoles are intended for riding the bike what better way to mold them to the feet with the rider on the bike and the foot, ankle, knee and hip aligned in a neutral position. The materials used to make cyclesoles are the lightest most custom available today. This insures the insole shoe interface aligns perfectly and the fit of the shoe is unchanged.
A bike fit should really always start at the feet; they are not only the foundation that supports us but also the first and last contact point that drives the bike forward. The goal is to make the foot a rigid lever on the bike so all power produced goes into the drive train. By making the feet stable we also prevent extra movement of the ankle, knee, and hips thus allowing the legs to track straight going forward and allowing the muscles to work for the propulsion of the bike and not stabilization of the leg. The result is comfort and efficiency keeping you injury free.
