Bicycle Fitting Techniques

Whether you ride on road or off, pedal casually or competitively; bicycling is most comfortable and efficient when your bike and components are adjusted to fit your body correctly. Let's face it, if your bike isn't comfortable for you, you're not going to enjoy riding it. We take care to ensure that your new bike is fit to you optimally. As you develop as a cyclist, maintain your equipment and travel with your bicycle, however, your adjustments and needs may change and require fine-tuning. To help, we've put together these guidelines for checking and perfecting your fit. They work for on- and off-road bikes (assuming you're on the right-size bicycle and not trying to fit a too-small or large model you purchased used, for example). Keep in mind that we specialize in bike fit. If you're experiencing a problem that you can't fix at home, come in and see us. We will set your bike up in a trainer so that we can make easy measurements and judge your riding position as you pedal.

A proper fit is comfortable and efficient.
