According to their PR, “aÃ‚Â recent study of over 500 cyclists at California State University found that 85% had overuse injuries.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â And 36% of them needed medical treatment.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Most overuse injuries can be prevented with proper bike fit. Ã‚Â Riding for four hours a week, the average cyclist will petal 1,000,000 revolutions per year.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Even a minor misfit can lead to major problems over time.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Proper fit is essential for longevity in the sport.”
