FIT Computations: Faster!!!

Thank you for using the Wobble-naught® system for fitting your bike. Some of you will have made drastic adjustments to your bike. It may take you several months to fully adjust to the new fit. Give your body time to adjust to the fit before you try to your get peak performance, otherwise you might hurt yourself.

Results in Bend OR., Phil Zajicek Navigators Insurance!

We have pushed the envelope for achieving the perfectly-fitting bike. The process requires a trained fitting technician, lasers, and software, along with a dedicated mind to learn!

Inpetus for developing the Wobble-naught CAD is the belief that the human-bike interface is the extension of the powertrain; it is unseen, but critical to the performance of the "engineered" angles of your body, which provide the direction of power. YOUR best pattern of pedaling through a circle can be performed. We see it all the time, using the Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish.

Up front, you would be shocked by the emails we get from people and their ego/imaginations. They self proclaim that they are the experts on fitting! Tasteful? "Naught!" They claim this, that, and the other! We must press some very real buttons for them to take the time to contact us.

Perhaps, it's because they only have their eyes, along with ideas, or they like to just tag their names along with someone who is well known. We, on the other hand, use serious 'high-tech' equipment and the results are the end-all!

We have taken a "lead, follow, or get out of our way" approach to the fitting game! All the fitting systems say that they are the real-deal, because the bicycle industry is a very competitive! Anyone knows if you want to take a first, that you can't give in to guess work. It's taken almost a decade, to let our 'baby' stand the course. Intense races prove that what we do works. However, we still can't claim anything!

Each year, at the finish line we see: Results! Results! Results! Results! Results! These results are leading to what we see as a very good trend! The trend has come in all areas including road, track, tt, tri, and mtb. Even Tiger Woods doesn't win every event. Results are the only way that things can add up! Not through luck, but fighting through all the critics!

We can't silence the critics, so we just keep spreading the word! The thank you notes just keep coming and we appreciate them all.

Serious cyclists are searching for the competitive edge, based on fact rather than tradition or guesswork. In most cases, sport scientists and top coaches work closely together, collaborating to share their knowledge and/or gained experience. We, on the other hand, hold constraints to our software, and that presses buttons! This is our product!

Scientifically based, and yet highly practical information, on physiological, mechanical, biomechanical, psychological, and medical aspects of cycling is quite the topic. What a tall order!

It's a tall order, in that finding a balance between the topics such as 'the best training principles', 'nutritional concerns', 'power output', 'equipment selection', 'pedaling mechanics', 'speed improvement', and 'psychological preparation' is enough to drive people crazy!!! And it does!!!!

Many people focus on efficiency, as they hear that will ultimately lead to results, while others are focused on injury prevention and medical concerns. Mainly we see researchers and coaches working on research projects to improve their business! Their goal is this: "Working with cycling." They intend on building their own programs! They send us their concerns, as they want to interact with us to learn what we are doing. They feel that we should provide them with feedback on how to get the most from the innate capacities of each individual cyclist.

Looking at Wobblenaught we see years of researching, years working with top racers, making software, and using the best 'high-tech' equipment available (ie. CAD,sEMG,Force Plates,Dartfish,etc...), unlike the trial-and-error methods of traditional understanding, doing things certain ways just because someone said so.

We hear that flexibility is the major issue. Simply defined, flexibility is one's ability of a joint to move through its normal range of motion. Structures that can limit the ROM of motion are: (a) the bony architecture of the joint, (b) the ligaments around the joint, (c) the joint capsule, and (d) the tendons attached to the muscles that cross the joint.

Simply defined, the importance of having an unrestricted, ROM at each joint level in the body cannot be over-emphasized.
The human body works like a new bike chain; each joint must be able to go through a specific ROM as a whole to accomplish it's task.

Muscles work in groups. The hamstrings cause the knee to flex, and work against the quadriceps if off! The quadriceps cause the knee to straighten. If the fit is wrong, one group will have to exert more force to overcome the other group.
Sounds easy? "NAUGHT!"

Each joint has a certain ROM. The size and shape of the bones can even change things! If you have your set-up incorrect, one group of muscles will be placed in stress more than the others, leading to a lack of smoothness of motion and increased fatigue.

Anyone can ride in a passive manner! It's easy to call a fit 'good' when it's tested with this type of effort! The relative power to move the bike under varied passive conditions is small. The ability to apply forces at the velocities required in competition is quite another concern! Everything becomes critical for successful performance. You have to go hard!

When going hard, the rider's efficiency, technique, plus the power generating capabilities, must be considered. The quest: to capitalize on the rider's body structure and physiological capabilities, to attain optimal performance.

Because efficiency is the major topic discussed, many concerns and comments can make its definition for cycling.
Energy stores become important on the long haul. To propel the bike it's necessary to be both effective and efficient. Mechanical issues allow you to haul it (i.e. short sprints).

Today people want an answer for power and efficiency. These measures are not independent of each other. Coaches have concerns about what works best. On any given day, a change in one dimension will affect the other dimensions. Adjustments of certain dimensions can affect the operating leg muscles, leading to their force-production capabilities, simply by using varied pedaling speeds, work loads (hard vs. easy), length-tensions, and force-velocity properties of the skeletal muscle.

Your focus on the pedal stroke alone can cause stress related problems that can lead to poor performance. It's enough to drive you crazy, and it does for many.

So then, what is the task that you wish to accomplish? Is it for the road, track, tt, tri, mtb, or perhaps for passive riding? It may be for one or many of these; whatever you needs, we have a fit for them all!

That is why we use the CAD, the sEMG/Dartfish to help you make sense of this rather simple, but crazy sport!
As we have all seen, people will go to great efforts to improve their games, even using medical technology efforts to gain an edge!

The search for ways to improve performance has taken cyclists down many roads. The self preoccupation with winning, obtaining prestige, and peer approval frequently cause people to follow poor advice! Preoccupation and motivation to be approved have no lids.

The end-all are the results, which become better known as the best "TREND".

We take our fitting systems to the line and let the results do the talking!

Reba Rusch/Team Bjurfors holding on to 3rd at Worlds!

Team Bjurfors doing well in the cold highlands of Scottland! After going without sleep, and being bone-cold and wet, there is a good chance for them to see the "Loch Ness Moster"

There's a series of neat photos of Team Bjurfors in the "Transition 3 & Loch Ness" Gallery on (, starting with a very wet and cold looking shot of Team Bjurfors paddling past Urqhart Castle.
Then keep clicking the "next" arrow to view pictures 3 through 7 as well as 13.

1st - Wilsa Helly Hensen (#9) left at 9:05 am Tuesday
2nd - Nike (#1) left at 10:32 am
3rd - BJURFORS (#13) left at 11:11 (only lead team that didn't sleep at TA3)
4th - Orion Health (#16) left at 11:45
5th - Balance Vector (#2) left at 12:58
6th - Buff/Coolmax (#5) left about 14:00

How do you Rank? Georgia Gould #1, Shonny Vanlandingham #5

Think about it! This is the year when the US picks only two cyclists for the 2008 Games. At the Games, racers will come from every continent, representing many countries and differing perspectives on what is best. They are the real deal! Only those who have earned the points go!

You have to have your A-game; there are few options, and the season is long and grueling. You have to travel, which is enough to tax your body. Shonny even got sick and had to miss a race. This year, luck might get you a few wins, but to go to the Games is another thing. You have to be able to go to the World Cup, do well, and get some points. No easy task! You start according to your rank and even if your rank is high, you have to pass many that are ahead of you. So if you are ranked 40th, you have 39 racers who hit the single track before you!

The two top pros who will represent the US have to go the distance and dig deep! It's a real dog-fight at each race and it will not be an accident who goes! There is so much on the line!

Georgia Gould has stirred the 2007 pot, and the racing is hard and fast and will stay that way! She has her A-Game and to merely be in the top 5 at this time is super! A real test for our fitting, and sEMG/Dartfish. We have a lot on the line! There are so many ideas about what a person needs to get the most from their game. Time will tell!

Shonny Vanlandingham is many times NORBA Champion, which shows you that she has the fight. Again, it's a long season and the racer has many chances to do well. Think of all the support behind the racers, (coaches, bikes, etc...) . They are counting on their racers to do well.

Perhaps this is the year to "end-all" ideas on how racers needs their mtb bikes set up!

That is why Georgia and Shonny both use our input, and our systems! Racers will not use anything that will not improve their game!

How do you rank? There are three who made it to the next level using our Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish systems.

Tina Pic is Pan Am Road Winner!

Yet another 'trend', Tina Pic earns a Pan Am road title. She's been using the WN & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish.

Tina Pic gave the US Cycling Team its ninth medal and sixth continental title with a victory in the elite women's road race at the 2007 Pan American Road and Track Championships on Saturday.

Tin Pic won the 72-kilometer road race for the American squad by out-sprinting silver medalist Yumari Gonzales of Cuba and bronze medalist Gina Grain of Canada.

Tina Pic's victory gave the American women a sweep on the road events after Alison Powers win on Friday's time trial.

Given the flat course and short distance of the road race, Pic , a crit pro, was designated as the team leader prior to the start. Midway through the race, Pic had a flat, but was able to regain contact with the peloton using the support of teammate Dotsie Bausch, who finished 15th.

The four-time USA Cycling elite women's criterium champion, Pic, was delivered to the line by Powers and Bausch before sprinting to a bike's length victory over Gonzales.

She can haul the mail!

Five of Top Ten WN fitted "Kelly Cup!"

What can we say!

Navigators Team was fitted by Craig Upton using our CAD and we fitted the Elite Abercrombie and Fitch Team.

The end-all of what works best for your bike setup can only been seen as trends!

We have got the 'TRENDS'.

Raleigh Criterium - Rich Harper (A&F) 3rd!

Raleigh Downtown Criterium - NE
USA, May 25, 2007

Sprinters dominate in Raleigh for the holiday weekend criteriums. Good showings from A&F's Rich Harper, a 3rd, and Mark Hekman, an 11th.

Sprinters take the top honors on the fast, flat course. Travieso hammered the competition into submission with relentless attacks. The race was aggressive throughout the evening, and when the elastic snapped, it was Travieso who made the winning break, which lapped the field with Rich Harper in the final sprint.

Battle the Bears Results! Georgia Gould gets 5th in Pro Men!

I just got a phone call from Nat Ross. Nat is our new dealer in Golden, CO and wanted to inform us that Georgia Gould just raced the top pro men in Colorado and held her own! If you want to get to the top you need to race with the best.

We see it in Indy Cart and we see it on the bike. There are women who can hold their own in any race they enter!

We watched Kristin Armstrong do the same here in Boise, ID. She races the Cat 1 pro men for a reason, to race! You can't just sit on a wheel in the Cat 1 men. They don't care how she looks, and they give her the real business! The end-all is, she is always in the top 5!

You have to be ready to test yourself and not gage yourself with what the locals are doing! You can't just ride with the pack, but stick your nose out in the wind! By racing with the men, the gals can find out how to race at another level.

Georgia is testing her fitness level, evaluating her needs to help determine how competitive she can be. To do that, you can't let your ego get in the way, or ride to only ride! Georgia is racing to race, which is why she loves her Wobble-naught fit! She can count on it when she is racing, going hard, not just camping out!

Just like Kristin Armstrong, Georgia Gould is racing Georgia Gould, taking her game to another level and she needs the fit to do that. They both are separating their games from the norm, they are riding faster, and being pushed harder, when they race the pro men.

Far too many times, we see female racers just sitting on the bike in a passive manner; riding with the pack.

So the question is this: How do you get faster?

To separate yourself from the pack, you need cutting-edge techniques, training, and racing information. You need to test and achieve your potential for improvement. Optimal racing performance comes from being pushed hard!

There are few gals that can haul it, even against the men!

Men Indivdual Standings: #1 Nat Ross, Gary Fisher Ultra Endurance
Women Individual Standings: #1 Rebecca Rush Red Bull, Ultra Endurance
UCI TT: # Kristin Armstrong TEAm Lipton
MTB NORBA: #1 Georgia Gould, Luna

Congrats to the number 1's! We are very proud to have had the chance to know them and support them! Hats off to the others that are in the top of their game.

Cycling Mechanics - What are the Trends?

A trend will show you what is happening over time. Do we just use tradition or guesswork? Do we just focus on one part of the body only? On what basis does a cyclist make his/her decisions? What is it you want to do?

As I just came back from a fly fishing trip at Billy Shaw Reservoir in Nevada, home of very large rainbows (fish that is!) with friend Pat Harper who is a getting ready to start guiding in Sun Valley, ID.

Patrick was a long time member of Team Montrail and has raced all over the world. He has a love of fishing, as do I, when I can find time. Patrick asked us, "what is up with all the success? You guys are kicking it!"

After 4 hours of drive time, talking about everything, this is what I said!

There is more to cycling mechanics than meets the eye! Cycling has advanced only in the past few years . The game is the same, but the way we teach the pedal stroke has changed! We have better working models that show you how to have better trends. This is not just training!

Equipment design in cycling will only improve your performance to a certain degree! The body is the motor, which is run by your brain, so let's start there! What is the purpose? The quest is to produce perfectly efficient propulsion! No human will ever achieve this, but you can improve your performance, and by doing so, can reach you own potential.

The first thing is to get all the links right! The first is the foot link, which is the correct placement for the best orbit, for the game you want to play. We see people who have used this and that to train on, thinking the feedback of the device allows them to make the best moves. The best moves for what? The road bike is not a mtb bike, nor is the mtb bike a tt or tri bike. Then they come to us and we see huge waste because they have a road bike fit when they need a mtb fit. If you can't get the golf club on the ball, or get your hands right, then don't expect the ball to go where you what it to!

Next you have to find the right shoes, saddles, etc... We even see the best in the world having foot issues! So finding the correct shoe is a huge deal alone! If the horses foot is hurting, it will not go! Some shoes work and some shoes don't, so get the best horse shoe or the game over!

The quest is to exert the different pedal strokes needed, when we want them, and yet to have a constant force on the end of the crank, where the pedal is, so you are not wasting the force to the center of the bottom bracket where the crank starts. Both tangentially and gravity forces are needed. The hip can represent the pivot of upper and lower axis, so as to provide the tangent/gravity stroke it's best to have the hip in place to push against!

This model is determined by the center of the bottom bracket and the radius, determined by the cyclist's choice of crank length. Most will fall into the range of 172.5mm, but taller people will opt for 175mm cranks, then you have some shorter at 170mm. Again, what is it you want to do? We all know that you can turn a shorter crank over!

It sounds easy, but this is a very complex skill for any cyclist. Extensive practice only, on xyz crank, will determine how well you do this, so do your 'home-work'. Too short and you don't have the top-end speed, too long and you bleed the sugar from your muscles! That means you are working on bad motor skills, and that will produce only more bad motor skills later, and ultimately bad results.

If you don't know the precise sequence then you could be wasting your time. You can have the various muscles working and contracting at the wrong times. It also wastes energy to 'over-and-over', speed up only to slow down within one stroke! Also, force that is exerted outward or inward for the best circle is not useful for propulsion. Any lateral movement is also a waste! Even twisting links, (too much toe-in or toe-out), will lower your propulsion!

There is talk about the cleat location under the arch of the foot in assisting the rider in maintaining an improved circular motion. Many could stand to use this idea, as it would provide them with more control of their foot in space. It's true, if the baseball player has his hands or grip at the end of the bat, he doesn't always have the skills to control the swing. Perhaps, if they don't have the skills, they can move their hands up, providing them more control. But don't expect them to hit a home-run!

Perhaps a base hit? Let's see, that would it take for 4 players to drive home just one run? If we can teach a person to hit the home run, then we can get all 4 players to hit home runs, and then, well I think you get the picture! Not to say that base hits can win games! It is just harder to get that many players to even get a base hit.

I want to point out that not everyone can be a winner, but rather we want the target for all to improve their performance, which opens more playground for them. Competitive cycling is not the only focus! Many say that they don't want to race, but on the other hand, would like to meet the physical demands of their local rides.

It's true, no cyclist has unlimited energy to expend in the many ways that energy can be wasted in wobble "Wobble-naught".
The 'Wobble', being the movement not needed, and the 'Naught' is a term for using CAD to find the best solution.

After finding the best zone for the many strokes, the key is then is to teach the cyclist to increase their proportion of force. Just like the batter or golf swing, this must be learned! We understand that learning is hard work and that many don't want to learn, they just want a silver bullet! Think of all those who go to school and pay big for it, plus all that homework?

Today there are many devices that provide some kind of model, or trend for you to watch. Much better than tradition or guesswork! However, for the most part, these devices only show the sum of what someone is doing. They don't show you what muscle is doing what! Nor do they really teach you to make better movements, (which comes from a ton of "home work").
It is fun to see some morphing image, but it is not really scientific.

There is "NO INCENTIVE" to make corrections to a better pedal stroke (swing the bat or golf club) if they don't hold the bat or golf club for the shot you want to make!

There is a relatively large range of motion of foot with any pedal stroke! Only a small range of motion is located where the sit bones make contact on the saddle. Put both in the wrong space, and you will really miss, strike out, or worm burn/sky your drives!

Now comes the teachings of just sitting in a passive fashion of top of the saddle, sliding all over it, or going hard and knowing where to press into it! Anyone can ride passively, but can they go hard?

To sum it all up! The sum of a many linked system is only that; the sum! Ha! You can ride in a passive manner or go hard. However, if you don't have your bones stacked, allowing for the best range of motion for the muscles and their precise firing sequence, efficient propulsion will never come!

Even if you only want a base hit, knowing it might take you 4 hits to get the one "run", you better have your hands in the right spot. If you want to hit a home-run, you had better hold the bat in the best way to increase you chances to score.

Fort Lewis College Team gets an A+ in Cycling Class!

We have been down to Fort Lewis College a few times to work with Rick Crawford's hard driving team.
The focus when one is in college, is getting grades, and it looks like the kids have done their homework. Each one of these guys has had a fit and time on the Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish.

Even with the science, they know there is no "free ride"; they know that you have to do the time in the books (cycling). Even with the best bike setup, you still have to pedal, but if you don't know how to pedal, well then your grade will not be so good!

Once again, our racers seem to show a better "TREND" than all the other fitting ideas racers.
Week after week we see our racers doing well!

Why is this? They went to Wobble-naught and Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish science class!

Heckman/Pic take Crit Series,UCI #1 Gould sweeps Fontana, CA. Rusch puts 8-laps on 2nd & Ross takes 2nd at 24-hr!

Talk about fast company!

Motion in the real world is complicated. However, we can learn a great deal when we consider several aspects of motion and investigate the laws that Newton "formulated" to describe it. That's right "formulated"! How can anyone claim to conduct science without a "frame of reference".

Physical science at work! By physical science, we usually mean physics, chemistry, and the earth sciences. Particular topics in physical science are not the exclusive property of one type of scientist. Hence, physicists are extremely interested in the study. However, we are talking about Wobble-naught and Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish science, and we have the tools!! You be the judge!

Mark Hekman and Tina Pic officially ended SE Crit Series ( Mark had an amazing win at Athens Twilight which was race number one of eight.

Georgia, is known as the peach state, and no question that Tina Pic is a "real peach". Talk about a nice person, a real life bell! But put her in a race, and watch her go! We knew she was going to be in the hunt. She is one of the best crit racers in the world! We know she can fly! Song-"I can't drive 55" by Sammy! Tina can, on a bike, and I have pics of it!

Racing requires working together to get a racer in place not just to race, but to win! It comes from everyone being strong! It also comes from knowing how to pedal and having the correct bike setup!

We are very pleased to have the chance to work with the best, like the A&F Team, the Tina Pic's, Georgia Gould's, Shonny Vanlandingham's, Reba Rusch's, Nat Ross', etc...
Their results say what we are focused on!

UCI #1 Georgia Gould took the short track after a super race on the XC in CA., for a two day sweep! Shonny Vanlandingham right there for 2nd top USA racer!

2007 Fontana XC- UCI #1 Gould unbeaten and wins by 3 minutes!

We work with our racers on a day to day or week to week basis. We check with our racers by email and phone calls and that even adds stress to them. This is not an easy game and you have to be able to deal with the stress of it all.

It looks like the Wobble-naught CAD and Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish are standing the test of time and Georgia's results are the "End-All".

Can you say "FOCUSED"? Georgia reports that the stress is so high, but she is really focused, as the season is well underway, and she is trying to get a spot on the long team for the Olympics. A chance of a life time!

Georgia - "I appreciate all of your help, and I really like the fit. I will let you know if I have any problems, questions, or concerns".

There is so much under the hood, regarding our fit, that the eye cannot see. We stack your bones and that is where we make a difference. One stroke at a time, just like golf! You only pedal 10,000 times per hour, so if you are off it will show!

Bobby Jones - "The course is only 5 inches wide-the distance between your ears".

Gould continues an unbeaten streak at Fontana NMBS. Shonny is still in the US hunt, and she is right there fighting for the 2nd place overall.
Don't think for a second that these gals are not giving it their all. They are hard as nails, and their fighting for chance to go to China.

Talk about stress! You should be in our shoes, this is our chance to show the world that we can make a difference in your game!

South East Crit Series "Pic back-to-back Victories".

Tina has been racing a long time and she also knows what the other racer's might be thinking, and where it is best to pick the right moment.

Bobby Jones - "The course is only 5 inches wide, the distance between your ears".

That is what makes this a great sport, you have to have your 5 inches working!

In golf, you have to get the ball in the hole to win and you can miss by inches. The same holds true for racing to the line, you only have to win by one-inch.

In the women's race Tina Pic (Colavita/Sutter Home) made it to the finish to take back-to-back victories in the South East Crit Series.

What's in your 5 inches?
