I am now a reborn cyclist, thanks to position specialist Gerard Bullen’s expert advice and elaborate bike adjustments (cleats, stem, aerobar, handlebar, shifters, saddle). It’s quite an experience to go through his “world-renowned” measuring protocol. Mr. Bullen speaks with the kind of self-confidence that comes on a person who knows he’s right.
His gentle mastership is unsettling (“In the position you’re in, you’re killing your achilles’ tendons”) and reassuring (“You should now go 2km/h faster”) at the same time. The ethnographic experience in itself was well worth the trip to Bullen’s neck of the woods. I hope my revamped bike position will eliminate the stomach cramps I get during races.
