Hart's Cylery Pedal stroke Analysis and Cleat fit: 1 hour in length. Cost $100.00 (plus parts). Cleat fits are done on existing bikes. Taking into account your specific needs we look at the alignment of the hips, knees, feet. We then use special tools to be able to understand your body’s alignment. We may use shims or wedges under your cleats or footbeds inside your shoes to help us align your body correctly.

Graduate Sports Therapists Nick and Nicola Dinsdale, father and daughter team, run NJD Sports Injury Clinic in Clitheroe, Lancs. UK. The family clinic is recognized for its strong evidence based approach to the management of sports related musculoskeletal injuries and its keen interest in working with competitive cyclists. Patients include professional cyclists, in addition to British Cycling officials.
NJD Sports Injury Clinic has extensively researched into cycling biomechanics and how lower limb / foot biomechanics can impact on cycling performance. These findings, combined with our own published research, enable us to optimize our Bike fit. To keep abreast of new research and technology, we frequently work with, and liaise with, various Universities in cycling related matters.
3. POWER TO THE PEDAL – CLEAT POSITION
by Steve Hogg
METHOD NO. 1 - So what is wrong with ball of the foot over the pedal axle (hereafter referred to as BOFOPA)?
METHOD NO. 2 - Here's another thought experiment. Most (I hope all) would agree that it is a good idea to spread the pedaling pressure on the foot-over the largest area to lessen the likelihood of hotspots or pain developing. If you agree with that, why is the focus of the literature on BOFOPA?
METHOD No 3. - Here we enter a whole new world, that of Midfoot cleat position. Midfoot cleat position is when the cleat is positioned so that the Tarsometatarsal (TMT) joints are over the centre of the pedal axle. The TMT joints are the joints between the two rows of bones drawn on the foot below.
4. Cleat Positioning
by: Aram Goganian on January 4, 2011
Basic variables that professional bike fit specialists can change to correct potential problems:
Fore/Aft Adjustment of the Cleat
Left/Right Adjustment of the Cleat
Rotational/Float Adjustment of the Cleat
Wedge Adjustment of the Cleat
