Part 3 and the final part of our series on saddle height in bike fitting continues with an interview with the founder of BikeFit, Paul Swift. We refer to these regular episodes as "Paul's Corner" where he not only weighs in on our previous podcast topics but expounds upon what he perceives in the world of cycling and specifically with bike fitting.
Today's riveting topics cover the following:
The range of saddle height and the variables that affect it.
Challenges to setting up proper saddle height.
The art and science of bike fitting
"T-r-i" which is the same as "try" but we were thinking of our triathletes
The Saddle Changer's impact in finding the right saddle.
Saddle shape and selection
Sit bone measurement
and much more...
