In Ep. 6, I was invited by renowned bike fitter Happy Freedman from the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City to join a talk with a group of fitters from around the country where he attempted to answer the question, “What is bike fitting?” In our conversation, some of the visiting fitters from New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Tennessee, Kansas get the opportunity to share their thoughts and ask Happy questions about fit. He describes the current state of bike fitting, where he feels the focus should be and the future of fitting.
The episode was recorded in the large atrium of the Pennsylvania Convention Center where truly we can say, fit happens.
Happy provides some incredible insight into bike fitting from the wealth of knowledge he's gained through over 40 years of experience.
