Should I get a fit?
Whenever your body, your bike, or your biking changes, it’s a good time to get a fit.
That mean's if you find your bike uncomfortable, want to change your riding position, or the way you ride has changed due to training, inactivity, or injury, a fit can help. Likewise, if you are on a new (or new-to-you) bike, planning a big trip or race, riding with more or less intensity, or just wanting to change your style of handlebars, booking a fit is a good idea.
What can I expect during a bike fit session?
We’ll chat about your cycling history and future plans, then we’ll put your bike on a stationary trainer and assess your riding position using a combination of measuring tools, video analysis, and collaborative observation (“That looks better, but how does it feel?”). Then we'll start making some small adjustments to see how we can improve the fit of your bicycle.
Expect to spend about half the time chatting and half the time pedalling.
What do I need to bring?
Bring your bike, whatever shoes you normally ride in, and riding kit or fitted clothing so we can clearly see your body angles.
When can I schedule an appointment?
What is the scope of the bike fit program?
Our fits are almost always able to help people get more comfortable and stronger on their bikes, but if you have serious long term health or mobility concerns, we would recommend getting an ‘adaptive’ fit from a medical professional trained to work with complex bike-body challenges. If you are an elite athlete, we would recommend you see an bike fitter who specializes in the kind of riding you do. There are some great people offering these services in Vancouver and we would be happy to refer you.
