Thanks to the authors for providing some preliminary data on the potential effectiveness of bike-fitting to reduce pain and discomfort in cycling.
Very interesting study, but probably some questions are worth comments from authors:
1- Was there a proper ethics approval for this study? It seems that data was obtained retrospectively from clinical records.
2- How transferable to training is 100W of cycling?
3- Would authors be able to disclose the source of the 'measurement reference values'? Elaborating the criteria used for changes in bike-fit is critical to understand how and why cyclists improved their posture on the bike.
It would have been nice to see a control group to determine how much of the perceived changes are from placebo-effect.
