Dear all,

A long time ago, David Winter analysed the frequency content of
natural gait and came to the conclusion that there was very little
signal power after the sixth harmonic (i.e. 6 x stride frequency).
Like many things in motion analysis, Winter's number has become almost
biblical in its widespread use.

I am currently working on a cycling problem, which is not normally my
field (although I am a keen cyclist!). I wonder if anyone has analysed
cycling and can tell me the frequency content of cycling kinematics?

Many thanks,

Chris
