It’s not (always) about the bike

“A good fitter will listen to the athlete’s problem and then ask a lot of questions,” says Fritz Tomasello, fitter at Edge Cyclesports. “Many times a triathlete’s pain [on the bike] can be caused by a change in training or equipment that is unrelated to bike fit. New shoes, either cycling or running, can aggravate an injury. The best fitter I know, Hank Iglesias, once told me, ‘The best tools a fitter has are your head and your hands.’”
