How and What is measured?
The Body Scanning CRM bike was developed in cooperation with orthopaedic specialists; physiotherapists; cyclists; and engineers. The system allows physical measurements to be taken without the need for direct physical contact between sales representatives and clients, seeking to find their ideal ergonomic bicycle seat position and to calculate their perfect frame geometry.
A bicycle finely tuned and adjusted precisely to your body’s ergonomic needs will increase your power, while decreasing health risks. We recommend your bicycle dealer adjust the ergonomic settings of your bicycle as accurately as possible, based on the correct analysis of your individual biometric data and the bicycle’s designated purpose.
It all starts with the saddle measurement and it’s correct height. It’s measured with an adjustment gauge called the bike adjustment device. The measurement is taken from the centre of the crank screw up to the upper- edge of the saddle . Or with the ergonomic step saddle, up to the upper edge of the step.
The saddle offset or saddle position is crucial for the right feel and power while pedalling. The saddle offset is measured vertically from the bottom bracket to the front of the saddle The angle between the force affecting the foot pedal and the force affecting the crank arm is determined by the saddle offset This angle must be optimised for the full crank arm rotation (360 degrees). The saddle offset is measured with the adjustment gauge (Bike Adjustment Device).
The handlebar height is adjusted relative to the saddle height. In this case there is a lot of tolerance; with three basic back postures: comfortable; mezzo and athletic, with many positions in between. These three seat positions, always correspond to the chosen bicycle category. The handlebar height is measured with the adjustment gauge (bike Adjustment Device).
The correct distance between the saddle and the handlebar will depend on upper body length and the seat position. It’s measured from the front end of the saddle to the handle bar grip. This distance often determines the choice of the bicycle frame. The distance between the saddle and the handle bar is either measured with the adjustment gauge (Bike Adjustment Device) or it is calculated with the top tube calculator, in the event that the frame only exists as geometrical information in a catalogue.
