Bikefit

It's important to first understand the difference between bike sizing and a bike fit. If you're purchasing a new bike, remember that bike sizing is done to determine the correct bike frame size.

Bike fitting, on the other hand, alters the bike to fit the cyclist’s unique body architecture to maximize efficiency.  Bike sizing and bike fitting can - and sometimes should - go hand in hand.  Comfort and efficiency are key to making that Sunday ride a great one.

 

Your 2-hour Road Bike Fit session includes examination of and required adjustments to saddle height, saddle fore/aft, cockpit length, handlebar drop and handlebar rotation. In addition, a pedal stoke evaluation determines whether any cleat adjustments are needed, including wedging for varus (inward) or valgus (outward) deviation. 80 to 90% of all cyclists have some kind of misaligned foot-pedal set up. At 90 rpm the average cyclist completes over 5,000 revolutions per hour... lets make every one count!
