Using Trial Mode (V1)
To experiment with using the system you can download a replay file via dropbox. Please note that the file is 1.5Gb so may take a while to download. The file contains the full 3D data stream for a short capture, hence the size.
To use the file, open the system and press the F12 key, a popup window will appear:
Select the ‘Playback’ tab then ‘Select file to playback’
Navigate to where ever you have saved ‘Aug 2016 Trial Mode File.replay’ and open. Once you’ve done this you can close the popup window (do not click ‘Eject’).
On the main screen click “New Client”
In the client details screen you can either enter actual values or press ‘Ctrl-D’ to have it autofilled. Then press ‘Next’
Choose ‘Capture - measure current bike’
Then click ‘Calibrate’
On the first calibration screen you will see our Technical Director, David, pedalling away. Move the green box to include the whole rider and bike. Note that the rider will not be on the bike at this stage of the fit. Then click ‘Next’
On the second calibration screen, make sure ‘Non-driveside’ and 31.8mm are selected. Then click ‘Next’
On the third calibration screen use the ‘Ctrl-D’ shortcut to autofill the calibration points. This step requires the Wand - you can see the red dots on the image above showing where the Wand has been applied.
A ‘Calibration complete’ screen will appear, click ‘Next’ from that screen.
The bike measurement step also requires the wand, press ‘Ctrl-D’ to auto-fill then click ‘Next’
The red dots show the measurement locations on the bike. Click ‘Next’ from this screen
This screen lists the bike measurements that have just been taken and has free text fields to enter additional setup details. The bike measurements can be manually edited if needed. You can skip this screen by pressing ‘Next’
At this stage you ask the rider to get on the bike and place the markers on them. In this case just click on ‘RETRAIN’ to begin marker ID
THe first screen in the popup asks you to shrink the detection area to only include the markers (make sure the rider is pedalling). This reduces the processing strain on your computer. If you anticipate making large changes to the riders position set the area to allow for that. Then click ‘Next’
In the second screen you hover the green circle over a marker then click on it. You can use the mouse wheel to zoom in to ensure you click accurately on the marker. Once a marker has been detected it will be highlighted in red. Keep clicking on the un-highlighted markers until all are detected. Each click expands the colour range the software is looking for.
Once all seven markers are being reliably detected the wireframe will appear consistently, as shown above. Click ‘Finish’
Once back in the main screen click ‘Next’ to progress to the capture screen.
To begin, click ‘Capture’ - the system will begin a 10 second countdown before showing values. It is capturing during this time, the 10s is to allow the average/max/min values to settle into realistic values.
After the countdown is complete the system will then take a still image of the rider on the next frame where the crank is within a few degrees of bottom dead centre. This will appear as a thumbnail beside the comment box.
Once you have captured for 30-60s, press stop. If anything is wrong with the capture (for instance the rider moved their hand to push hair back) do not save the capture. If you are happy with the capture, write in a comment and press ‘Save’ - you will see the data added to the History list.
Once you’ve collected the initial data you can proceed with making changes to achieve the desired outcome. You may save as many history items as needed. Note that only the initial and final captures will go through to the report so if you wish to save a set of measurements (body or bike) from the intermediate steps you’ll need to screenshot them.
If you wish to compare a previous capture to the current data, click on the history entry - a popup will appear.
Once you have achieved the desired position, click “Measure” at top right. This will open the bike measurement screen. Click “Redo” on the points that have moved (for instance - if only the saddle position has been changed you only need re-measure the Rail XY, Saddle tip and Saddle top).
Place the wand just at those points. You do not need to repeat any point that has not moved.
The next step is to record any equipment changes that have been made.
Once complete, click “Finish” - this will return you to the capture screen. Click “Next” to progress to the report screen.
The report field is pre-populated with your standard text that can be modified in the Settings. Write in your comments regarding the fit process. Note that we do not have a spell check built in. If you wish to have a spell check we suggest having your template in word - write the report there and paste into our system when complete.
Once complete click “View Report” - the report will be generated in your browser. We recommend using Chrome as the appearance of the report is harder to control in other browsers. From there you can print to pdf and send the report to your client.
