Bike fits are not one-size fits all.
They are a snapshot in time. 
Fit the cyclist first,
then adapt the bike.

ABOUT

HAPPY FREEDMAN
SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS / CONFERENCES / WORKSHOPS ON BIKE FIT

"Bike fit unplugged" is the philosophy behind Happy Freedman's revolutionary approach to bike fitting, driven by the rider's anatomy, medical history, cycling experience, and riding goals. Going beyond gadgets and software, bike fit unplugged redefines what a bike fit is, and in the process places the cyclist in their best position yet. 

Happy Freedman is an innovator and internationally recognized expert in the field of bike fit.

 

Over the past 15 years, Happy has been instrumental in developing the first hospital-based clinical bike fit program in North America, during his tenure at Hospital for Special Surgery. There, he also worked with exercise physiologists, physical therapists, and medical researchers in the motion lab.

Happy's approach focuses on posture, breathing, and the use of antagonist muscles, and benefits riders at all levels, from professionals to recreational cyclists. 

He has presented on bike fit at the International CycleFit Symposium in London, numerous events throughout the US and is a founding faculty member of the Medicine of Cycling Conference held annually at USA Cycling in Colorado Springs, CO. He is on the advisory committee of IBFI, the International Bike Fit Institute.

 

Happy fits the cyclist first, then adapts the bike, to address the individual needs of the rider and to develop an evidence-based protocol for bike fitting.
