How do you make speed?

If we showed you who is in our database, seeing the names of all the people we've worked with would blow your mind. They all want to go faster! To do that you've got to have the mechanics spot on!

Two legs, one leg, even those with no lower legs can all move the bike down the road faster with a better understanding. That is what we bring to them! We just had a small crit race just outside of Boise, ID. It was interesting to go and watch the many ways people pedal!

We will only say that people who use our CAD mechanics took the first few races and then raced the final Cat 1 race. One of them had no problem lapping the field.

So what's the deal? First, everyone should study Tiger Woods and then they would learn a few things about making power. He has had knee issues, and just had his left knee worked on due to a certain move he puts into the impact part of his swing.

Sure, you folks are going to say "golf- give me a break." Ha! But you are a human and mechanics are the key to all sports. You pedal about 5000 times per hour! That's a lot! And if you can't hit it, well?

Speed factors boil down to mechanics and foot speed just like a golf club! If the cleat in relation to the saddle zone is in the wrong place, the mechanics will never come together!
So if you can't make perfect swings, then you will never make good contact with your stroke.
In fact, the body will have to take up the wasted energy and that will cost you later.

Is there any question that if a person can hit a ball far, they gain an advantage? The same is true for each pedal stroke. But what about the sprint? For the most part, when you are standing your body has to follow where the hands are in space. With that, good cleat placement can make a difference just like the club face hitting the golf ball!

Where do you obtain your info for sport? "Not all advice is good and often is bad"

Perfect practice and repetition creates good players! That is why we use CAD, Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish. It provides you with the biofeedback of what is going on, rather than someone telling you what they think you need to do! It shows you what you are doing!

The foot travels in a circular path around the bottom bracket. There are physics, and the game is hard, because it is the opposite of what you think. It is not always like your instinct and not just a downward stroke!
