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





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


Happy has been instrumental in developing the first multi-disciplinary hospital-based state-of-the-art Bike Fit Lab, to be used for performance, clinical bike fit evaluations, and research. With professional experience covering a range of related areas, over 10 years at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York City – the #1 ranked orthopedic hospital in the United States – and his current position in Prosthetics and Orthotics (P&O) in the HSS Rehabilitation Department, Happy works in close cooperation with physical therapists and investigators in the motion lab.

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 focuses on fitting the cyclist first, then adapting the bike, to address the individual needs of the rider, in collaboration with staff in Performance Services to develop an evidence-based protocol for bike fitting.
