Moment’s staff has considerable triathlon experience from sprint to Ironman. Everyone rides, and we have collegiate runners, swimmers and pro cyclists on staff. We are also very female friendly. We have 3 women on staff! As the longest running bike shop sponsor of TCSD we’re here to help you succeed!
JT started his career in mechanical engineering with Shelby American and various aerospace companies. Moment Bicycles was a way to combine passion for triathlon and his engineering expertise.
Bike Fitting - JT bought his first tri bike from “another bike store” in 99. He got the typical “You’re 6’2” so you need size 58”, they set his saddle height and a test ride. After experimenting with his bike position A LOT (never getting it 100%), JT went to bike fit school at F.I.S.T. (slowtwitch.com) and learned he was on the wrong size. Dan Empfield (tri bike & wetsuit inventor) developed a new fit method called F.I.S.T. It was opposite from the traditional [pick a bike, then fit person to the bike], to what Moment calls “Fit First” [Fit the person, then find the bike that matches the person BEST]. A new technology called the “dynamic fit bike” made this possible. In 2007 JT improved the process creating a proprietary method to compare rider positions to all bikes using software. Moment “virtually” matches bikes to the rider’s best position. Moment shows a rider before they buy what configuration of bars, stem, saddle etc. for a particular bike model. The rider has complete information before making the purchase. Hence, the name of the process, FIT FIRST. Moment Bicycles is San Diego’s only Fit First retailer.
In 2008 Dan Empfield asked JT to be an instructor at FIST. Moment teaches the competition. JT also regularly consults with bicycle brands on geometry, component spec, and bike fit. Our fit-techs have fit Olympians, pros, and the best magazine editors around. JT occasionally writes for slowtwitch.com and other magazines.
