Whether you're looking for a competitive edge or new to cycling, nothing can improve your riding experience as much as a professional bike fit.  A fitting will help prevent injury, ensure comfort on long rides, maximize use of important muscle groups, and optimize power transfer.

  

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN A NEW BIKE ADJUSTMENT & UPGRADING FOR A COMPLETE FITTING?

All of our new road and triathlon bikes include a bike adjustment at the time of sale.  Should you consider a complete road or triathlon bike fitting as well?  A complete fitting is a more in depth process than a new bike adjustment and makes sense for many riders - newer riders who want to ensure comfort, experienced riders or anyone who wants to have the best possible experience on their new bike. A complete fitting will assess details like stance width, foot tilt as well as determining if you require cleat wedges, shims or adjustments that are not included in your initial new bike adjustment.

WHO GETS FIT?

A complete bike fitting with can benefit any rider.  This service is a great option for all level athletes - whether you're looking to shave seconds in a race or just want to be more comfortable on your bike - a good fit is key!

WHAT TO BRING: 

Once you've scheduled an appointment with our BikeFit Pro, be sure you plan to bring your bike, shoes and cleats, riding shorts, jersey or comfortable top as well as gloves if you use them regularly; the complete bike fit is a 2 - 3 hour process, it is important that you are comfortable and the bike fitter has a true sense of how you ride and a clear view of the knee.  

MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE: 

Ride it and feel the immediate difference. All of our fits are backed by a money-back guarantee.  We also offer fit adjustments after the fit - without paying for a re-fit! Follow up adjustments are included with your fitting for one year.
