Specialized Body Geometry Fit

Specialized's Body Geometry Fit method was developed in a joint venture between Specialized and Dr. Andy Pruitt, Director of the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine. The Body Geometry fit process is scientifically proven to increase power, improve knee tracking, reduce injury; and is the same method that is used with top professional riders in all cycling disciplines, that is available at Okoboji Expedition Co.

Drew's Daily Cycling Tip

Shifting For The Hills – The best way to shift for climbing (assuming that the hill is challenging, not a short one you can roll right over) is to start in a gear that feels almost too easy and find a nice pedaling rhythm that gets you about half way up the hill. Usually, you will start to “warm-up” to the hill at this point and feel okay because the gear is actually a little bit too easy. At this point, you should shift into a slightly harder gear and see how it feels. This allows using different muscles while covering more ground with each pedal stroke. Depending on the hill, you might find that you can shift several times and actually accelerate over the top of the hill, a great feeling!

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

working together

An important tactic in cycling, working together means riding with at least one other person and sharing turns in front blocking the wind so you can both rest regularly and maintain a better speed than you could riding alone.
