Focus on contact points
Posture is not a question of attitude
You are at the right place for your bikefitting!
Daniel Hechenblaickner is a physiotherapist, has been bikefitting for 14 years and is also author the book: Bikefitting - Von Kopf bis Fuß richtig eingestellt. He can therefore assess postural dysfunctions and give tips on further therapeutic or training procedures even before the actual bike fitting. During the ride on the smarttrainer, he analyses quickly and precisely, both for beginners and professionals. This competence is outstanding.
Independent recommendations on products and individual set-ups are given only if necessary. Suggestions for a tiny material update are conveyed objectively. These attempts are made on basis of the existing hardware - the focus is simply on the perfect symbiosis between wo:man and machine.
Daniel's cycling and triathlon experience comes from active riding and coaching of all age groups. His insight ranges from health and recreational athletes, to ambitious amateurs, to elite athletes. His own career in bike racing and triathlon (Dusika Youth Tour, x-times Austrian National Champion, Ironman Top 5, Powerman Top 6, European Cup Triathlon Top 4, World Cup Triathlon Top 15, Triathlon European and World Championships in the Austrian Team) underlines this expertise.

The contact points between wo:man and machine
From the overall posture to the contact points: bikefitting for road bike, gravel bike, triathlon bike or mountain bike at the saddle, handlebars, brake grips, cycling shoes and cleats, no matter if racing handlebars, straightbars and aero handlebars want to keep the rider in a perfect position!

15 years of bike fitting in Tyrol - Bikefitting ★★★★S
15 years ago the current cycling and triathlon boom couldn`t be expected: insiders only knew about bikefitting. Nowadays ambitious cyclists can't hide from it, because almost every magazine, manufacturer and dealer is dedicated to the perfect bike position. In addition the number of bikefitting services and ergonomic hardware has grown. I look backward to more than a decade of bikefitting with all theses improvements.
This "tuning" has been in my interest from the beginning of my cycling career, but in the end of the 80s cycling was still something for freaks only. Just a few folks were riding their steel roadbikes - cycling wasn`t cosy and hip and the mountain bike has just been invented. Maybe this was the foundation for my expertise in bikefitting.
This story will be continued in my bikefitting studio in Innsbruck - where experience meets finesse.
Bikefitting for every bike and rider
Light + fast
On the flat or on epic climbs - you pedal much better if you are well positioned.
On + Off Piste
Bikefitting gives you wings to fly through the terrain without having any painful hotspots.
Uphill + Downhill
Cornering with comfort and in technical perfection without any pain in the neck.
TriATHLON & TT
Exploit the full potential in aero position while enjoying a powerbar.
To the hut + beyond
Ride a transalp efficiently with or without a backpack.
Riding for hours without losing your position - not even after a stop-over.
Shuttle without physical discomfort during your visit in a bikepark.
You don't need a fitting, really!
Exercise is more than sport - bikefitting helps you get going.
Bikefitting for professional cyclists & top athletes
The human system is unbelievably complex: small reasons have big effects. A problem usually starts on one body-side and if it`s too little you don`t care about this in the beginning. Is the symptom really the reason?
Even professionals who fight for the worldcup podium have to take care to cure any small aches. Despite all the training and adaptations, nobody is immune to discomfort. Intensive competitioning is by no means a good model for a any riding posture which you would like to copy.
Bikefitting is a dynamic process
Bikefitting is active riding. These motion sequences are analyzed, adapted and finally implemented. This procedure is about the pedaling motion, the general posture, specific positions and joint angles. The shoe-foot unit, legs (especially knees), pelvic position, spine, neck, head, shoulders, arms and hands are to be analyzed. Your posture will be permanently checked, re-adjusted and improved. Fitting in progress, the final is good to go!
Bikefitting is not Bikesizing
Bikesizing is the static measurement of body proportions to determine the hardware. The selection of the right frame size is done in your trusted bike shop. With this selected bike the bikefitting will be done:
the contact points between rider and bike are to be adjusted.
FIT YOUR BIKE & FIT YOUR BODY LATER!
Feeling & efficiency
Lot of cyclists ride with saddle and handlebars that aren`t adjusted. The used material is somehow collected without exploiting the potential. This means: if the hardware doesn`t provide every possible position, the perfect saddle adjustment is limited. Handlebars are usually set a little lower to make the bike looking smooth. Discomfort, back- knee- and neck- pain, numb fingers and toes can result - in addition physical limitations arise.
Cleats perfectly adjusted
Bar tape in perfection
Racebar in race or recreation mode
Mountainbike grips options
Cycling shoes should fit
Cycling shoes are offered in different stiffness indexes and different sole widths. A suitable base for every foot. Ventilation helps to prevent overheating and swelling of the feet. Tight but with no wrinkles and yet big enough is the experienced recipe for road cycling shoes, triathlon shoes, mountain biking shoes and gravel shoes.
Aero with clip-on and aerobar
Brake levers adjusted properly
The brake lever is adjusted to the respective finger length during a bikefitting session. Braking is possible at any time like shifting and operating the remote.
Good saddle and saddle height
A bicycle saddle is the central element in bike fitting. A wide variety of materials and designs, including 3D printing support every pelvis when pedalling. If a saddle is adjusted almost horizontally and in the right vertical and horizontal position, too the rider is satisfied.
Shape is just a snapshot - the correct position is for good
