Ryan Dungey on Specialized Body Geometry FIT
Ryan Dungey knows a thing or two about bikes. The professional motorcross racer has won every major title in American Motocross and Supercross. But he doesn’t stick to just bikes with engines. Ryan is an avid cyclist.
ERIK’S: What did you think about the Specialized Body Geometry FIT experience?
Ryan Dungey: The bike fit experience was very eye-opening for me. Overall I feel much more comfortable in the saddle. It was only millimeters of adjustments, but those changes made all the difference! Knowing I’m getting the most out of my pedal stroke and power is mentally good to know!
ERIK’S: What improvements did you noticed to the bike fit after adjustments were made to your bike and equipment?
Ryan Dungey: The adjustments that were most noticeable were the inserts in my shoes and adjusting the cleat positioning. The little bit of support in the front part of my shoe and the support in the arch made my pedal stroke feel more connected, smooth and efficient. The cleat adjustment kept my right knee from coming across as I pedaled downward, which was uncomfortable.
ERIK’S: Would you recommend a Specialized Body Geometry FIT to other cyclists?
Ryan Dungey: Yes, I think everyone should be fitted. It will save you a lot of stress on the body if you get fit correctly from the beginning! I would recommend a fit to someone who has been cycling for years or just starting. I’ve cycled for 10 plus years before getting fit. I believe it could have saved me from a lot of discomfort and aches and pain.
