Bike Fitting Services

We are recognized throughout the region for our proven expertise in bicycle fitting.

There are those who insist that you can be fitted with a few skeletal measurements, detailed questionnaires and inputting data into a formula-based computer program. Establishing these things is helpful and can deliver a “ballpark” fit, but it does not assure a perfect result. It does not guarantee you are getting your money’s worth.

Those fit systems would work great if we were just fitting a skeleton on a bike. But we’re not — we’re fitting your body. Building a proper position takes into consideration not only your skeletal dimensions, but your muscles, tendons and ligaments in their current state of flexibility, strength and mobility.

Our techniques are based on biomechanical assessments that have been developed to address the specific needs of cyclists and triathletes. Physical therapists, aerodynamicists, medical doctors, exercise kinesiologists, chiropractors and structural engineers are just a few people that are continually involved the development of our fitting protocols.

Our fit protocols focus on optimizing the following key components:

  • Power Output
  • Efficiency
  • Aerodynamics (when applicable)
  • Comfort
  • Stability

Existing Bike Fit:
Designed to enhance performance and comfort as best as possible on your existing bike. This fit starts with a detailed personal interview followed by comprehensive assessments of your biomechanics, range of motion/flexibility in key cycling muscle groups, core stability and alignment needs. You will receive a worksheet, documenting your position, that can be used to set up any bike.

Time needed: 1.5 to 2.5 hours

New Bike Fit:

The best first step if you are searching for a new bike. This fitting includes all that is listed in an Existing Bike Fit as well as an individualized product consultation with recommendations for proper setup. You will receive all the dimensions and component sizes needed to have a stock bike set-up to your position.

Time needed: 2 to 3 hours.

Performance Analysis Fit:

Designed for the athlete who wants to optimize performance and efficiency; this is our most complete fit. Performance Analysis includes all that is in the other fit levels and goes farther to optimize your position. We use the Compu-Trainer system to measure power output and spin in detail while optimizing your aerodynamics. The average speed increase gained is greater than what a pair of aero wheels offers at about a third of the price.

Time needed: 3 to 4 hours.

General Fit Services:

We are happy to address any fit issue (pain, numbness, etc.) that you would like us to address. For more information, please contact us.
