In the never-ending quest for the perfect bike fit, Selle Italia partnered with Professor Luca Bartoli from Ergoview to develop their own semi-automated fitting system, known as ID Match Bike Lab. What’s different about their system? By using a 3D imaging camera to measure a rider’s body, they’ve removed the element of human error and can measure joint angles with precision. Not only that, because the measuring process is automated, a full fitting with their system takes only 30 minutes, instead of the usual two to three hours.

The Computer Software

The bike fitter begins by capturing the measurements of the rider’s current bike setup, using a laser to determine precise coordinates to measure the distance from the bottom bracket to the saddle and handlebar. The computer uses these coordinates as a starting point for the seat and handlebar on the automated fitting bike. Once this info is in the computer, the two touch points move into position on their own. The system then uses an X-Box model body imaging camera to capture the measurements of the rider standing up and bending down. Professor Bartoli spent years creating a huge database of rider measurements, on which the software system’s algorithm and calculations are based.

Before the rider gets on the bike, the fitter inputs criteria specific to that rider’s style of riding and level of experience. Operators input what type of bike they are fitting the rider for: road, mountain, track, gran fondo, criterium, triathlon, or downhill. The system also takes into consideration rider comfort and physical limitations or injuries. If the rider has any chronic pain problems, there is a screen that gives you the option to mark where on the body, how painful it is, and how long the problem has existed. The system then takes that into consideration when choosing the right angles for the person’s fit.

The system also allows for the input of an expert fitter: The saddle, handlebar, and crank length can be adjusted manually if the fitter chooses. One thing ID Match cannot do is fully calculate the rider’s comfort, so a human operator will always be necessary for final adjustment and interpretation. The system can also recognize imbalances within the body, and fitters can use that information to create a better setup by, say, putting a shim in the shoe of a rider with one leg shorter or stronger than the other.

The “Bike” Machine

The rider then gets on the fitting bike to ride, again in front of the 3D camera, and pedals at a steady, medium cadence for about 15 minutes. One important note: The rider has to cover up any reflective gear (like shoes, for example) that would be detected by the camera because it confuses the software. You can watch in real time as the software accurately pinpoints the rider’s joints with precision and calculates the angles between them. This is much more accurate than the dots-on-skin method, because as you move, your skin moves over your bone so the dots shift position. The 3D camera locates your joints exactly. As the rider pedals, every minute or so the computer automatically repositions the handlebar and seat as it tries to determine the best position for the rider. This system is also unique in that it can accurately measure the rider’s pelvic rotation angle-which is a function of a person’s flexibility. Most other current fitting systems measure only a hip-to-shoulder angle, which doesn’t take into consideration if the rider is hunching over in a certain position.

This is where the system really cuts down on the time it takes to perform the fitting. Traditionally, an expert fitter would have to manually measure and reposition the rider repeatedly throughout the process. And since measurements are interrelated, as one thing moves, it’s likely something else will have to move, too. The ID Match Bike Lab system can do this automatically and simultaneously, as the rider continues to pedal. It can also sense if a change in positioning has made the rider uncomfortable, by picking up on any rider resistance to the position adjustments. The system is completely based on the biometrics of the rider and the ideal body point angles for that specific rider, not which position results in the highest power output, which doesn’t transfer to long-ride scenarios as well.

The Bike Measurement Tool

Once the riding portion of the fitting is complete, the system will provide updated coordinates to be used to reposition the rider’s personal bike, again with laser-guided accuracy. Or, the system can recommend a completely new bike setup for the rider. Get this-it has a complete database of every frame, saddle, handlebar, and stem currently on the market. Want a new frame? It’ll take your frame preference and recommend the best parts for it by rank, according to your results. After 30 to 45 minutes, the rider can walk away with both a printout of his/her measurements (not just the machine’s coordinates) and an email copy.

Additional Systems Available

In addition to its bike-fitting system, Selle Italia also offers a cleat positioning system for $600, which positions the rider’s cleat on their shoe that’s perfectly in line with the first metatarsal. The process uses an old-school shoe-size measuring tool to locate the spot on the subject’s foot. Then riders step onto a platform that records supination or pronation, the lateral direction your feet and knees tend to fall. The shop inputs this data into the computer and puts the shoe on the machine, and a laser helps line up the cleat. Of course, cleat placement is a personal thing, but this machine gives riders a good starting point on a fresh pair of shoes.

How to Get Fitted With the ID Match System

The ID Match will be introduced to the U.S. market later this year, with the estimated purchase price of around $32,000. The ID Match Bike Lab was designed to be user-friendly enough that it doesn’t require an expert fitter to use. Selle Italia claims that any bike shop employee can be trained to use it in a few hours. For the near future, ID Match labs might be few and far between, so keep an eye on their lab locator on selleitalia.com.

Most high-end bike shops will now have one eye firmly trained on the potential gains to be had from offering professional bike fit in store, but it’s no small investment both financially and in time. CI.N met with idmatch sales manager Neil Davidson in a bid to understand why an automated fit kit might just bolster your bottom line…

In past editions, thanks to our resident bike fitting guru Jon Iriberri, we’ve discovered great potential when adding bike fit to a store’s day-to-day operations. Based on global feedback from a pool of 200 fitters it was found that complete fits average £150 ($200) a pop. With the standalone fitter undertaking as many as 250 fits per year, each taking around two hours each to complete, it’s a shot in the arm for those trained to offer such services and at a time when shops are increasingly looking to bolster their non-product offering.

It’s a time-consuming process, which is both a good thing (in customer relationship building terms) and a bad thing in ‘there goes my day’ terms. Quite simply, it’s a service that should be charged based on the extensive training and expertise required to complete a professional fit. But what if everything could be made far simpler, more efficient and with the removal of the opportunity for human error?

Step in Luca Bartoli, the CEO of Ergoview and former Head of R&D at Selle Italia. Having made training tools for swimming and with a keen eye trained on cycling, Bartoli set about rethinking the bikefitting process, starting by assessing the weakest links and the dead time. As any experienced bike fitter will be able to identify, time is largely consumed by measurements and adjustments; even the fastest of wrenches among us will spend less time than they’d like actually assessing the finished article for any final tweaks.

Bartoli came up with idmatch, an autonomous system that utilises motion capture and a self-adjusting bike fit jig that uses a series of motors to align the handlebars and saddle to the exact human dimensions captured over a series of short images captured in front of the camera.

“We begin the fit process with a series of short poses in front of the camera to determine the rider height, lengths of limbs and pelvic rotation. What this marker-free method removes is margin for error that often stacks up in quick succession when a system forces manual placement of markers at the joints,” explains Neil Davidson, ZyroFisher’s idmatch Bike Lab sales manager.

“Our software determines all it needs to begin a fit within two minutes, everything from crank length to bar width in one seamless process. When manually measured, these findings could take the best part of half an hour; and that’s the point with idmatch, you’re constantly removing dead time and without the need for the customer to hop on and off between adjustments.”

When it comes to the heavyweight fitting jig, a three by four metre space is required in store. Reading the customer’s data from the motion capture software, the jig’s internal motors are then able to quickly and accurately slide into position that will comfortably accommodate the customer. From there, the customer is asked to pedal up to a comfortable 75 rpm, at which point the motion capture cameras set to work to analyse the customer’s pedalling technique and position in the saddle. Algorithms within the software are then able to feed the jig with real time information that fine tunes the rider’s perfect position in the saddle. Accounting for positioning on the drops, these calculations build into the equation a fit that satisfies the customer who desires to spend at least some of the time cheating the wind.

“It is important to make sure the rider is comfortable in the most aggressive and efficient riding position, doing so will make all other positions on the bike comfortable,” says Davidson. What’s more, the shop staffer charged with undertaking the fit can even input individualised detail on the customer’s injury history, intended riding style and even manually adjusting elements to better suit the individual quirks of each fit; all of this while the rider is mobile.

“The idmatch system can be up and running in store very quickly,” explains Davidson. “Typically, when setting up in store we will spend a day setting up, calibrating and two days training staff, It is a very intuitive and easy to use bike fitting system, as it’s software based.”

At the end of the motion capture analysis a report is generated for the fitter which presents a fact sheet filled with essential data flagged, all presented in a jargonfree manner. This data, as well as being stored in the idmatch database for future reference, contains a bar code for the customer to quickly access their data.

Utilising a brand neutral database of global bicycle and parts brands, post fit customers are presented with a wide-range of perfect foundation bike and frame choices on which to begin tacking together their dream steed. With each marked according to the amount of tuning required to exactly fit the customer’s profile, the process is not only confidence inspiring, but presents an incredible upsell opportunity in many cases. Beyond a full bike fit, idmatch also offers a more casual but nonetheless important entry to the world of custom fit. Both the digital saddle caliper and cleat fitting devices are available separately, again, removing the margin for error and adding a scientific approach to a traditionally complicated process.

The saddle fit kit, tethered to an 80-SKUs strong Selle Italia range spanning entry and comfort builds right through to carbon railed performance units, is again a simple threestep process to find the perfect fit. First, measure the distance between the heads of the femur, then the thigh width and finally measure the pelvic rotation. With these measurements in the bag the caliper will recommend either an S (Narrow) or L (Large) along with a digit ranging one to three, indicating the size of cutout required, if any.

“We’ve three or four options per category giving customers choice on price and cushioning, among other factors,” outlines Davidson. “MY18 filled some key gaps in the range, so bike shops can now offer this service in full confidence of finding the perfect saddle first go. Two thirds are sold with some form of cutout pressure relief we find. There’s no downside to a bigger channel, but without a large enough cutout riders will often experience discomfort – (reduced pelvic rotation is not the cause of discomfort) which is a result of increased pressure on the perineum.”

Meanwhile the two-part cleat fit kit first measures the client’s foot, accounting for foot length, length to the first metatarsal and width. These measurements combine to create a recommendation for the tower tool to perfectly install the cleat. Placing the shoe aboard the tower, a laser will indicate the exact position and angle that the cleat should sit to ensure the customer experiences no discomfort. A forefoot tiltmeter is further able to observe the customer’s pressure on the pedal with a laser, again targeting the client’s toe to knee, to observe whether there is any pronation (inward knees) or supination (think bowed leg).

For those with a ZyroFisher account, these tools can be supplied alongside stock-ins of shoes and pedals from Giro. “All of these systems are about helping the IBD, making shops better regardless of what brands they sell,” concludes Davidson. “Taking out a lot of the guesswork and vastly reducing the time taken to complete an accurate fit, idmatch ultimately means extra time in the day to see more customers and put more cash in the register.”

Zyro’s all in package with everything under the idmatch fit portfolio comes in at £28,000, including all setup, software, staff training present and future, as well as courtesy car-style backup if the equipment ever malfunctions. Dealers and standalone fitters are able to visit Zyro for a demo on request, simply contact Davidson with any questions you may have.

Is This The Future Of Bike Fitting? - Dialling Your Bike Position With Big Data \u0026 Selle Italia

The key to a good bike fit is working out your body’s dimensions. But with people having different degrees of coverage, it’s not easy to judge where their various joints are buried in their bodies and the length of their different bones.

Italian company idmatch’s solution is clever: it uses 3D imaging of the cyclist with a camera built into its fitting console to scan the direction and speed of movement of the limbs and torso. From this, its software can calculate automatically where the pivot points are in the skeleton: ankles, knees, hips, shoulders and arms, so giving it a precise measure of the lengths of the cyclist’s body segments and their position on the bike.

The process starts off with a static view of the body to take its dimensions and determine how flexible the rider is at the pelvis. The rider’s weight is input and any particular aches and pains that the cyclist is suffering are recorded, along with which muscle group they affect and their intensity.

>>> Cycling neck pain: how to treat and avoid it

Using an old fashioned foot measurer, like that found in a shoe shop, the fitter measures the dimensions of both feet. The bike fitting software uses this as an input to determine the preferred crank length.

idmatch sells a laser guided cleat positioning jig, which lets the fitter set up a rider’s cleats in the correct position based on the foot measurement. This measures the distance from the rear of the shoe to the cleat. There is a set of templates for each of the different cleat systems, which clips over the cleat and ensures that the centre of the cleat is set up in precisely the right position and at the right angle.

Automatic position adjustment

Then the rider mounts a special interactive stationary bike and starts to pedal. Based on movement and joint angles scanned by the cameras, the system automatically moves the bars and the saddle up and down and backward and forward relative to the fixed position of the cranks. Since the system is automated, the rider just continues to pedal as the adjustments are made.

Its aim is to optimise the cyclist’s position, based on idmatch’s sizing database. There are set-up data sets for different disciplines, so a rider’s position for cyclocross or a time trial bike will be different from that for a road bike. MTB and hybrid positions can also be tested, with a straight bar fitted to the smart bike.

>>> Is 'women's specific geometry' still relevant in 2018?

idmatch starts off with the rider’s existing bike, using laser scanners and a jig to determine their current position. These parameters are input on the system’s touch screen console as a starting point for the bike fit. The bike fitter doesn’t have to stick with the system’s scanned position, but can manually adjust position as well.

Saddle and bar recommendations

idmatch maintains a database of over 10,000 products from 300 brands, so that it can, for example, see whether you’d fit on a size medium Look Huez, what the saddle and bar height should be set at and what length stem is needed to match your fit.

idmatch has worked with Selle Italia and has divided available saddles into categories, so it can select the best saddle to match your anatomy. In my case, it recommended a medium width saddle without a cut-out, which matches my experience of testing lots of different saddles. idmatch has done the same with bar width and drop. Fit is calibrated with the rider in the drops, as this is the most extreme position adopted and needs to be comfortable if the cyclist is to make best use of the bars.

A full bike fit station includes a wide range of bars and saddles, which can be swapped quickly and are mounted so that they are all at the same relative position on the smart bike. idmatch also keeps a database of component dimensions for other brands. An output of the fit is the recommended bar, saddle and bike frame.

The system outputs the results of the fit as a pdf file which can be sent to the rider or accessed via a 2D bar code. It also keeps a history that can be referenced for a later fit. The laser jig used to find the current bike set-up can be used to adjust the rider’s current bike to the post-fit positions.

UK distribution of the idmatch system is handled by ZyroFisher.

idmatch has been concentrating on the Italian market since its launch, but is now expanding into the wider European market and has plans to target the US and Chinese markets too soon.

In your slang, until the next departure, he fucked me several times a day all week and did not go to anyone. We went to our rooms. After all that I had heard from my mother, I had such a sweet ache in the cave that I wanted to retire as soon as possible. And take care of myself.

You yourself know that it is more convenient here, - I unbuttoned her jacket, - Especially since it was here that you spied on us. Tatiana gasped, but how could he have noticed her then. She was neat, and did not allow more than one movement. And Mikhail, it turns out, knew all this time that she watched how he and Yulka had sex.
