The PowerFiTTE bike fitting also includes a strength and flexibility program for cyclists that helps rehabilitate and strengthen these structures.
All bike fits in our San Diego sports medicine office are done by three-time Olympic cyclist and 1981 Ironman Triathlon World Champion John Howard with over 40 years of elite and professional cycling experience and bike fitting experience and feature his PowerFiTTE system.

You’ve probably had your bike “fit.” This typically includes a series of measurements and adjustments. But it doesn’t take into account your unique biomechanics.
An incorrect, inefficient fit could be holding you back as a rider. Worse, it could lead to injury or chronic pain.
PowerFiTTE is a unique, dynamic bike fit process that fits you and your bike together, and determines your ideal riding position. We’ve spent more than 25 years perfecting it, and it’s the most comprehensive fit program available.
Set aside two full hours for your PowerFiTTE session.
First, you’ll fill out a detailed questionnaire. You’ll discuss your riding history, style and goals with your FiTTE System practitioner. We analyze your riding position, in motion on your bike, including placement, knee movement, hips, back, arm and hand placement. Using our computer system, we’ll record your work output and relative left/right leg strength. We gauge cadence, heart rate, power application and efficiency. We’ll then hand-measure every relevant joint angle and examine the flexibility of all key muscle groups.
Off the bike, we look at your flexibility in such key areas as hips, hamstrings and quads—the “power zone”. We’ll show you ways to increase your range of motion—the key to power—and demonstrate some techniques to improve your physical limitations. (We’ll let you know if physical therapy is needed.) We make micro adjustments to your to your bike and instruct you on modifications to your riding position.
Finally, it’s back on the bike, where nearly all our clients instantly notice significant increasing in power and performance at the same effort and heart rate.
