Retul bike fitting:
We are lucky to have expert Retul bike fitter Nate Koch available through out the week and is offering fitting to all of Team Zoot.
Nate's philosophy is: "Speed is a byproduct of comfort and sustainability. We want to understand how your body functions most optimal and allow it to do that naturally. It is when the body is forced into positions and made to do unnatural movements that discomfort and injuries occur. The only pain you should feel on the bike is the pain you inflict upon yourself. Your saddle should feel great majority of the time, nothing should be going numb and you shouldn’t have any neck, back, shoulder or knee pain." After five years of bike fitting and several thousand bike fit I have learned not just how to use a fancy motion capture machine, but more importantly what changes to make when riders express certain issues. When your body shifts forward, back or up and down it is trying to tell us where it wants to be and we just have to know how to listen.
Nate's Retul bike fitting rate is normally $350- Team Zoot rate $250, $325 with custom insoles To schedule a fitting please email Nate at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To pay for a Retul bike fit: PayPal: email@example.com
Support: ALL the sessions are fully supported. Rides will be sagged with nutrition, hydration, mechanical support and directions.
Weather: Yes, SoCal is beautiful this time of year but it still is a high desert, so can be chilly mornings and cool evenings. Be prepared for both warm and cold weather. Pack you thermal cycling jacket, base-layer, gloves, arm and knees warmers.
