The goal of a fit is to optimize balance and comfort in the overall position of a rider while they are riding their bike. This allows the fitter to make precise adjustments that are individualized to the rider while also making the rider more efficient. As well as gaining efficiency, a fit allows for compensation of injuries or anatomical imbalances, and in most cases leads to performance gains and improved comfort in the saddle over extended periods.
A fit can be done on an existing bike and is always done with the purchase of a new bike. To get fitted before you buy we can use our fully adjustable fit bike. This bike can replicate the fit of almost any bike and size.
Who can benefit from a bike fit?
Anyone who rides a bike at any level, whether it is road, mountain, gravel, cross or triathlon, can all enjoy the same benefits of a fit. While it is common to have a fit done after experiencing pain and discomfort from riding, having a full fit can also prevent it by putting the rider in the best position from the start.
Why we don't use 3D or Retül?
While we believe that the perfect bike fit is extremely important, for us, it is not a money generating service. We use many schools of thoughts and practices in order to best serve you. In some cases we will even work with you 2-3 times to ensure that if we have to take things slow and are achieving the desired result. Our priority is to provide you with the best fit for you and not to sell you on bike fit for hours on end.
What do I need to bring for a fit?
To perform a fit, you need to bring cycling shoes, pedals and riding clothes.
