What's more important the man or the machine, that's an often debated question among cyclist?
In other words, is your bike or your fitness more important?
The answer could possible be neither. What really counts is how the athlete interacts with the bike.
Tim Troha of Colorado Multisport would probably agree with this as he's professionally fitted hundreds of athletes to their bikes.
Recently I had a chance to see him in action as he fitted my friend Greg of the great Blog Bolder in Boulder for our team's new BMC bike.
For those of you not in the loop, the core of the sponsored team raceAthlete is currently made up of myself and five other Bloggers and Podcasters.
If you want to be part of the team just click HERE to join and get all the details.
We're still seeking two additional age-group athletes to fully sponsor and several others to partially sponsor.
In fact we'll be announcing the first raceAthlete partially sponsored athlete today on the Team's web site: www.raceAthlete.com
If you have not yet joined the team I encourage you to do so as all team members have exclusive access to a great coach and bike mechanic plus many other benefits.
You can also read more about Greg's fit HERE and/or click below to listen to what Greg, or our first Guinea pig, had to do to optimize the fit of man and machine.
