Our bike fitter, Les Welch, brings over 30 years of fitting experience to Green Lizard Cycling. In the early 80’s, most bike fit emphasis was on improving efficiency; the science of fit at that time was the (Fit Kit) method. Over the next few decades the need for comfort and efficiency became much more apparent, and other fitting systems arrived on the fit scene. The next big step was improving aerodynamic position, mostly for time trial and triathlon cyclists. Les is a certified F.I.S.T. fitter, and combines numerous aspects from various fit methods into a (Fit for the Masses). The GURU Fit system is dynamic, combining motion capture, measurement, and observation by our experienced fitters. A chart showing the original position, and chronicling all changes, will record your fit process-you will get a copy of the chart, and we will keep a copy in our files.
Les’s motto regarding bicycle fitting starts with, ” it’s okay to be comfortable”. Les’s vast experience includes professional and elite road cyclists, triathletes, mountain bikers, new cyclists young and old, and lots of people who just want to be more comfortable riding their bikes.
