Kona 2013 – Bike Fit Analysis – Pro Women: How Aggressive Should Your Aero Position Be?

I finally made it around to doing an analysis video on the pro women. In this video we compare and contrast the aero positions of Michelle Vesterby, Liz Blatchford, Jodie Swallow, Amanda Stevens, Caroline Steffen, Amy Marsh, Rachel Joyce and Mary Beth Ellis. Here we talk about the meaning of an “aggressive” aero position, and compare setups at both ends of the aggressiveness spectrum. We also discuss whether the positions are appropriate for the rider in question (or anyone for that matter) and why. Finally, we put a couple of the athletes in the bike fit penalty box. As always we employ our videos shot on the Queen K at mile 110 at 300 fps.
