    Just listened to the podcast…excellent info. The guru suggests getting “off the shelf” insoles, does he mean Dr. Scholls or more like eSoles eFit or Soles custom footbeds? If not Dr. Scholls, which insole would be recommended?

    • Hi Felizr,

      Victor means eSoles. They are a fantastic heat moldable footbed. Visit Victor’s website and reach out to him as he is a distributor if I am not mistaken. He set me up with a set and they have done wonders for my foot pain since he discovered that I have a fallen arch. – Coach Rob

    Hi,
    I listened to many of your podcasts and love them. Keep up the work, people are listening and appreciate it.

    I have a quick question:
    1) When are you supposed to get a professional fit, before you have bought a bike or after?
