    Japanese fitting / power ergometer?

    Check this rig out. Found on fb, not sure of source. Would love to hear more about this machine.

    The equipment in the background looks like something out of wargames

    My local shop has been talking about this for a while, hoping to see it at some point

    You fit on the machine, which is adjustable in every way, then it lines up with lasers to the bike on certain points to duplicate the fit.

    It looks like a university setup. I've seen similar at Georgia Tech in a research lab.

    I've actually been on the Guru machine that's very similar to the one pictured above. It's very very cool. Totally adjustable as you're pedaling, hooked up to a spinscan / computrainer... it resulted in a pretty radical re-vamp of my road position, which I'm still using. Traditional ruler and rule of thumb fitting had me a lot further back and with longer and higher reach (old school position) and after an hour on the machine it was clear that I'm more powerful and more comfortable with the bars a lot closer and lower and the saddle much more forward and a tad higher. Anyway, I endorse the machine, it's one of the few fitting systems that I think is worth real money to try.
