Published July 1, 2016

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. (BRAIN) — Interbike is revamping its Fit Symposium, which will be held for the second time this year, during the Interbike expo in Las Vegas. This year's edition will be curated with Medicine of Cycling, a group that organizes an annual academic conference in Colorado Springs. 

This year's Fit Symposium will be held Tuesday, September 20, from 12:30-5:30 p.m. 

"Bike fit continues to be a hot topic among the bike industry today, and is another way for brick and mortar shops to separate themselves from 'click and ship' retail operations," said Pat Hus, the vice president of Interbike. "We are committed to helping the retail fit community – those interested or just starting out, and those already invested in this segment of our industry - to help IBD's find ways to enhance their businesses."

The content will include the following topics:

  • (General Session) Accommodation vs. Rehabilitation – Body vs. the Bike
  • (Beginner Session) The ABC's of Fitting
  • (Advanced Session) Fit Technology – The Tech & the Tools
  • (Beginner Session) The Anatomy of Fit
  • (Advanced Session) How Foot-Pedal Interface Solves Problems and Sells Inventory
  • (General Session) Selling the Right Bike/Frame Size: Getting It Right The First Time

Curtis Cramblett, the chair of Medicine of Cycling, will moderate and speak at the event. Other speakers include:

  • Paraic McGlynn, Founder and Chief Technologist, Cyclologic
  • Wade Hall, Specialized master teacher, Co-Chair of Medicine of Cycling Bike Fit Task force; Owner, Spokesman Bicycles
