Positional bike POSI + VELO is the name given to the variety of bike fit services and supply we provide.
Geoff Farnsworth is a native Montrealer and has a lifelong experience as a cyclist. Having raced competitively as a mountain biker, been a race team manager and partner in a bike shop, he turned his interests toward long distance bike camping and one-day fondos. More recently he is a multiple Race Across America ( RAAM ) participant.
He has worked with many Cycling Canada and Team Quebec athletes, specifically for aero optimization. Geoff is also the Canadian representative for the SecretSaddle Club saddles and Gebiomized technology.
Welcome to a new world of cycling saddles! Developed by bike fitters, made for bike fitters. Based on more than 15 years of experience in building custom cycling saddles, more than 50,000 analyses of Gebiomized saddle pressure mappings with thousands and thousands cds of cyclists and backed with valuable input from some of the worlds finest and most famous bike fitters, we proudly present the very first line of gebioMized saddles.
I am just beginning my journey with new tooling from Gebiomized pressure mapping and video analysis software and hardware but it is a game changer. No longer is there a need to guess how a client’s body responds to a fit, therefore, the client and bike fitter have more confidence and more unbiased data on the changes made.
Jules has joined the Posivelo bike fitting team!. A kinesiologist and holder of a master's degree in sports science (University of Montreal), Jules has developed a genuine passion for optimizing human performance, exercise physiology and data science. Over the past 5 years, he has collaborated on various research projects in partnership with high performance sports organizations. An experienced athlete, still active on the elite road cycling circuit, he has participated in several international competitions, including the prestigious Tour de Beauce, the Philadelphia International Cycling Classic and the Tour du Rwanda. Hungry for knowledge, he reads practically everything related directly or indirectly to sports performance. He is recognized for his attention to detail, his ability to marry the latest scientific advances with field practice, and his deep desire to help and advise others towards their goals.
German designed saddles based on the evidence and experience gleaned from thousands of pressure mapping sessions and fifteen years of making custom saddles for the worlds top riders.
We currently have opportunities for Canadian dealer inquiries.
FD= ½ ρν2 CdA
(Drag force) = (1/2) x (air density, ex. altitude less p) x
(velocity squared (2x faster is therefore 4x more drag) x
(drag coefficient) x (frontal area) The Bioracer Aero green screen set up measures the "A" in this equation. Smaller area (A) means more efficiency means more SPEED!
The gebioMized team has been working on the optimal seating position since 2001. Developed in cooperation with the University of Münster, our dynamic bike fitting concept is now represented in over 20 countries worldwide.
In addition to suitable measurement technology, we also support the international bikefitter scene with training courses at various levels and in several languages.
Based on more than 15 years experience and more than 50,000 pressure mappings with thousands and thousands of cyclists, we proudly present the very first line of gebioMized saddles. These are sold primarily through out SecretSaddle Club fitters but can also be procured through this website.
Depending on your foot shape, we are offering semi custom PUSH insoles. A design based on more than 10k pressure mappings and thousands of foot to shoe optimizations. This is a high-quality insole designed by fitters specifically for the realities of a cycling motion 100% conceived and made in Germany!
More comfort, enhanced stability and perfect power transfer were our objectives when we started developing PUSH insoles.

Posivelo employ the Gebiomized saddle and foot pressure mapping systems. Developed by Daniel Schade, as part of his Master thesis at U of Munster in Germany, this system allows for quick, reliable analysis of the rider’s saddle and foot pressure distribution.
Both systems permit a type of evidence based view through the point of contact to view in unbiased terms how the rider is interacting with the point of contact. Allied to the rest of the rest of the fit process, this evidence can help direct a fit towards the changes that need to happen to achieve your goal.
We have been using Retul for the last 7 years and Geoff is one of a handful of Master Certified practioners in Canada.
The static fit process can't tell the fitter what’s happening dynamically when the rider is moving and applying load to the pedal. Retul provides the tool that allows and helps us get a better understanding of bike position in the real world and can often spot details and connections that the eye does not. Another Retul product is the adjustable 'MUVE' fit bike which permits exploration of saddle position, trial of a variety of crank lengths, handle bar position. The Muve is especially used in cases of new bike selection, exploration of aero position and in cases where the front end of the bike is integrated in the bike design.
Retul offers quick, reliable data to be gathered; not only about the rider but also the bike. The 'ZIN' function uses the same 3D motion capture technology that allows the riders dynamic joint angle data to be collected to assure the bike itself. Every fit we offer over 1.5 hours leaves with a Retul report on both themselves and the bike.
Data alone means practically nothing by itself and requires an experienced technician to analyze and interpret the data and advise the fit process.
