Victor Jimenez is the driving force behind Bicycle Lab and the bicycle fitting studio and is a recognized cycling expert and master bicycle fitter. He has done thousands of fittings and worked with cyclists all over the world for over 30 years and is one of the most experienced experts in the industry. He was the co-host (with Darryl over at Lovingthebike.com) of one of the most popular cycling podcasts in iTunes (Cycling360) which was listened to by over forty thousand athletes around the world every month. Victor is also the creator of the cyclist’s education site called The Fluent Cyclist where he taught road cyclists and triathletes about their machines and how to become better athletes.
After years as a triathlete and fitness testing specialist with the American College of Sports Medicine, Victor began to apply his ideas to “bicycle fit” – fitting a bicycle to the rider’s body, riding style, and use. Victor studied bike fitting in the mid-eighties with “The Fit Kit” founder, as well as some of the most respected builders in the country. Besides running a small and busy bicycle fitting studio, over the years Victor became a frame builder, master mechanic, and teacher of all things related to cycling. You can read a few articles over on my blog page.
Twenty-plus years ago Victor founded a high-end retail bicycle store to supply custom-fit bicycles to triathletes and road racers, and has also been an importer and distributor of bicycles. He was also the founder and lead designer of a high-end bicycle company making bespoke titanium, steel, and carbon fiber bicycles in the United States.
He has taught clinics to enthusiasts, physicians, physical therapists, coaches, and teams. Topics covered have included bicycle positioning, bicycle repair and frame selection, and riding skills.
Victor is a presenter for USA triathlon on bike positioning and cycling technique for coaching certification. He works with many coaches and athletes to improve their technical skills.
