    Physiotherapist Neill Stanbury from Australia joins the show this week to dive into his specialty which is complex asymmetrical motion patterns and injuries.  As a bike fitter, Neill encounters extremely difficult cases where cyclists have experienced significant pain, injuries, and developed issues and complications due to the asymmetry.  He discusses how issues manifest itself on the bike, the brain's involvement in the process, and also his treatment methods. The episode is broken down into a few main topics:

    Neill Stanbury Bio:
    Neill is a Physiotherapist who specializes in cycling biomechanics and injury management. He has been fitting for around 10 years and has a special interest in complex asymmetrical motion patterns and injuries. His interest in bike fitting came about after suffering from severe knee pain on the bike and attempting to overcome the problem with conventional fitting philosophies. After struggling to achieve any improvement with three separate bike fits, he set out to solve his own challenging problem and became deeply interested in the complex biomechanics and problem solving involved in high-level bike fitting. After running his cycling-specific Physiotherapy clinic for a decade in Melbourne, Australia, Neill has just recently moved further north to Brisbane and is currently conducting fitting sessions by appointment out of Cam's Cycling Collective in Bowen Hills. Neill has trained with world-renowned bike fitter Steve Hogg and specializes in all forms of complex asymmetries, as well as cycling overuse injury management.

    Ep. 16: Online Bike Fitting

    Ep. 16: Online Bike Fitting

    Online or virtual bike fitting is not a new concept in the scope of bike fitting but certainly considering the current state where many are confined at home due to stay-at-home or lockdown orders, most in-person fitting is not functional. As a result, more fitters offer a virtual or online fitting service. In Ep. 16, I interviewed 4 different bike fitters to glean their diverse opinions. Two of them currently offer the service and the other two expressed concerns about the practice. Between the 4 interviews today, you’ll acquire a quality sample of the current pros and cons of this topic.

    Please note that in this as well as our other episodes, the views and opinions of our guests do not necessarily reflect those of the company BikeFit.

    Ep. 15: Pelvic Stability with Greg Choat

    Ep. 15: Pelvic Stability with Greg Choat

    Pelvic stability is integral to power transfer.  Seasoned professional and functional movement specialist Greg Choat has been involved in racing for 40 years, coaching for 30 and fitting for 20.  He extensively discusses how pelvic stability impacts our fit, the comfort of your saddle and how your efficiency and power transfer.  He's traversed the arduous path of injury recovery which sidelined him for a period from cycling.  His winding road back to health inspired a relentless hunger for knowledge of body functionality and bike fitting.  Greg also is an expert on saddles and he talks about not only his view on the world of bike fitting but why it's so incredibly difficult to navigate the saddle selection market.

    Greg Choat Bio:
    Greg's passion for bike fitting grew from his own misfortune. Unable to ride a bike, walk or run following a back injury he sought out professionals to help address his issues. The answers he sought could not be found in the bike industry at the time so he looked to the wider health community.
    His journey took him both eastern and western medical professionals, neurologists, kinesiologists, phycologists, chiropractors, physiotherapists, and some who's practice could not traditionally be described.
    After 14 months of inactivity, he returned to competition with a new appreciation of the human body and the many ways it can function.
    Greg is a Cat 1 USA Cycling Coach and Certified Skills Instructor, Functional Movement Specialist II, RKC HKC kettlebell Instructor & Precision Nutrition Master Coach. With over 20 years of fitting experience and 30 years coaching and continuing learning he is a journeyman in the world of human movement and sports performance.
