"I went to see Robert Wilhite for a bike fitting and initial technique evaluation. The Client Comments at his site are quite bold, and my impression is that they are not overstated. Robert is a true teacher. The fitting was educational as well as functional. If someone is considering a bike fitting or an initial evaluation , I highly recommend that they are done at the same time. The two processes mesh well together, and you even get a discount.
Throughout the fitting, Robert explained the bio-mechanical reasons for positioning certain bike parts relative the location and motion of certain body parts. In a nutshell... I walked away with a bike that actually compliments the size, shape, and movement of my specific body, my technique has been immediately corrected in the area of posture, and I have a clear path to generate more power and speed by simply correcting my motion."
"Well its been 1 week and about 200 miles since you set (fit) me and my Bianchi up. I can't even come close to telling you how much better I feel and preform on the bike. Not only is climbing somewhat easier (still gotta get better at breathing) but also high cadence cruzing has also improved. Who would think that a bunch of small adjustments to myself and the bike could make that big a difference. You are the man! I am still having to work hard on my core support for longer rides as my core strength is still not up to par. But it is getting better even if slowly.
Just want to really thank you for your time and advise."
"HOLY COW! So I just finished my second ride since the fitting. I can't believe how much of a difference that fitting made! Without even trying, I set my PR on two climbs and my total average speed increase 1.2 mph on this ride. Most importantly, my heart rate didn't spike, I recovered quickly during the ride, and I feel like I have a ton of energy left for the rest of my day! During today's ride, my riding buddy (a triathlete who happens to ride a tri-bike) called me the "Rocket Man". Love it!
I do see a tremendous power gain in the new position, and am going to continue working on those muscles and become stronger. Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for helping me!"

"Thank you, Thank you, Thank you ROBERT! I bought my Pink Elite bike in December 2005 and I have had 4 different individuals do fittings for me. After having constant severe lower back and knee issues, I decided to give a fitting one more shot! Lucky enough for me, I run into you at Columns drive. I have been riding my bike now pain free, thanks to you. You were also the first to notice that my bike is to small for me. I guess a new bike is in the future for 2008 and I will be calling on you again for a fantastic fitting! I am looking forward to my training season with you."

"Robert, thank you SO MUCH for my bike fitting Friday night. I went in thinking there would be some minor improvements, but the differences I felt Saturday were not minor! I had so much more power, using the same amount of exertion. During the 3 hour ride, I just kept saying WOW! It really felt like a whole new experience. I didn't know just how poorly fitted I was until I got the right fitting. After getting off the bike, I went for a 13 mile run. With the old fitting, that would have been so much harder - I used to get off the bike with pain and soreness. Those same pains were not there Saturday. Now, I just have to get a lesson to learn how to tackle those hills?! Thanks for your help, I appreciate your expertise!"
"I never felt better riding this particular bike like I felt after you made the seat adjust the first time I came over to your house (I guess you made a small adjustment to the bar as well?). What you did on that seat/bar adjustment made all the difference in the world (before that, I was always moving my rear end all over the place)."
"Grateful to announce my improved performance since my profession fit and training with Robert. My riding skills impressed my friends with my improved avg mph by at least 2-3 mph! Wilson 100's 65 miles made for lots of time for practice :)
I am convinced that everyone needs to schedule a fit and lessons with MYCYCLECOACH; it really makes sense."
"With his emphasis on biomechanics, Robert found & corrected things that I never even thought about. Not only did he find & correct issues with my bike fitting, but also with the way my cleats were set, and gave me instruction on proper positioning on the bike."
"Having Robert Wilhite as a Coach has been very beneficial to my cycling. The individual one-on-one sessions are very informative and enjoyable. The bike fitting was very in depth, and no changes were made without Robert first describing in detail the mechanics and purpose/importance of each change. After the bike fit and going over posture/position and breathing techniques I could feel a difference in the power of my pedal stroke and efficiency of my recovery."

"You took the time to listen to and understand my objectives then spent hours fitting me and test riding different Models. I am grateful that you helped me make the right choice then and appreciate how you have stayed in touch, encouraging me to continue riding."
