Why Should I Have A Bike Fit?

A bike fitting is designed to optimize your active riding position because it considers the unique connection between your body and bike. Getting it right will help you climb faster, descend more confidently and ride with less fatigue. A correctly fitted bike will also help reduce many strain related injuries cyclists often suffer.

Frequently asked questions

What is a Body Geometry Fit?

Body Geometry Fitting is the perfect compliment to any bike. Any rider who is looking to ride longer, faster, in greater comfort and with less risk of injury can benefit from a Body Geometry Fitting. Whether you’re a novice rider looking to find more comfort out of your fitness bike or a seasoned racer looking for that extra edge, the personalized nature of a Body Geometry Fit will tailor to your needs. During your fitting, your Certified Fit Specialist will consider your bio-mechanical needs while catering to your preferred riding experience, adjusting your position based off your individualized wants and needs. Assessing every aspect on the bike, your Fit Specialist will take the time to make sure your bike is a picture of the rider you are and the riding you want to be doing.

Is cleat fitting part of the Body Geometry Fitting process?

Yes! We refer to our cleat portion of the fitting as “z-plane” analysis. As we assess rider position our z-plane analysis not only takes into account knee tracking as a result of cleat adjustment, but also takes into account rider rotations on the saddle, which can create abnormal knee, hip, and upper body positioning.

What should I bring with me to a bike fit?

Please bring the following items to your session

  • Your bike – During your session your bike will be placed in a trainer to allow for your cycling bio-mechanics to be recreated inside the studio
  • Your shoes - If you are hoping to purchase new shoes at the time of the fitting please contact the store prior to making an appointment as we will want to allot a slightly longer time frame to accommodate the sizing of this purchase
  • Your pedals - We stock cleats for most pedal systems should your cleats need replacing
  • Cycling shorts or tri suit - These need to fit well to ensure we can take accurate measurements
  • Jersey or base layer - We need to be able to see your shoulders for the most accurate measurement
  • Helmet – In particular instances we may want your Triathlon/TT helmet
  • Headwear and Sunglasses- In some cases something as simple as the bill on your cycling cap or the rim on the top of your sunglasses may be leading to that nagging neck pain.
  • Proprietary bits - If your bike has any kind of "integrated" stem, seat post, or tri bar set up, please bring all spacers and fittings provided with the bike.
What is the Body Geometry DATA System?

DATA stands for Dual Angle Technical Analysis. This is our Video Capture system. Using high frame rate and live streaming video cameras, your Fit Specialist can capture your riding position at varying levels of intensity allowing for a closer look at your unique cycling characteristics.

What types of bike do you fit?

We fit nearly all kind of bikes including road, MTB, Fitness, Cyclocross, Triathlon, and Time Trial bikes

What if I bought my bike elsewhere? Do you only fit bikes that you've sold?

No problem! We fit all types of bikes from any vendor. If you have a specific seat post or stem that is proprietary to a manufacturer please do make sure and bring all required pieces as our relationships limit some of our ability to order small parts from all vendors.
