Just guessing, but his method was likely going to a fitter who then measured with a goniometer.

Can you explain me your method to mesure your flexion ?
Went to a fitter last year and that was one of many variables. I believe +55 to +65 is the range of 'normality.'

I have a lot of drop as you do (~10cm). Did you run your Arione flat or nose tilted down?

My max hip flexion is pretty good; recently measured at 62d and a trunk tilt at 43d. Sounds like from a textbook perspective a Dimension may be a good candidate.
Can you explain me your method to mesure your flexion ?
I would like to know this to

Do you know if the famous fitters (like Bikefitting, Retul, Gebiomized...) can make this kind of mesurement ?
I have already try the Shimano bikefitting system and the checking of the flexion was not in the variables system. But It interested me particularly because I make an hard work with a physiotherapist to improve my flexion.

I used an old school fitter that also uses the new age tools to dial in fit. I think he uses BikeFit. They attach reflective stickers to certain body parts and measure using strobes & software or something.

I would not use a fitter than soley relies on tech to fit. Get someone that knows how to fit.
