For maximum pleasure and maximum performance, your bike should fit you perfectly.
There are a number of factors to consider when fitting a bike. The first step is to select a bike of the correct frame size. Frame sizes are essentially a vertical measurement. Taller riders will take a bigger frame size. A petite lady will take a small frame size. We stock a depth of frame sizes in all models. We'll set you up in a bike which perfectly fits your height and torso.
Once we've determined your frame size in the bike you want, we will address other fitting issues. Is your saddle height correct? Are you over extended across the top? Is the handlebar too wide for your shoulders? we'll ask you to test ride the bike and to be forthright in telling us how you feel on the bike. When you ride out, it will be with the perfect fit.
For advanced riders, especially road racers and triathletes, we provide a more in-depth fitting service. This service is available in our
Initially, we will apply the method described above. Then we will discuss with you any potential changes or additions to equipment, such as pedals, shoes, aerobars, or adjustments to stem or bar length.
From there we will move on to cleat position, saddle height, including saddle fore-aft, handlebar/aerobar reach, drop, and angle. Then we will take a comprehensive measurement of your body using the latest in fitting tools and technique. Following this, we input all of your data into special software designed specifically to assist in bicycle fitting and review the results. This software will provide us with the correct measurements for your bike, including the recommended frame size and angles, stem length, handlebar length, and saddle height.
We don't end there, of course. We'll review the computer results with you and explain what they mean. We'll apply the changes and see if you're comfortable.
If you're not, we'll make the appropriate adjustments. It's what we do. That is the art of
bike fitting and we are masters of it.
