Boulder Center for Sports Medicine

I found these Bicycle Fit Rules from the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine to be a good overview and starting point for a basic DIY bike fit.

A quick overview of the article: A dynamic fit is better than a static fit. Okay, now, here are all the rules for a static fit.

I don't doubt they did, they use a dynamic system, but their article simply regurgitated the same old static rules they say are not as good as a dynamic fit. And they are right, a static fit is not as good. I would rather use Steve Hogg's site for a self dynamic fit. https://www.stevehoggbikefitting.com...ard-can-it-be/ https://www.stevehoggbikefitting.com...d-can-it-be-2/ https://www.stevehoggbikefitting.com...or-road-bikes/
