Bike Fitting

Most ‘off-the-rack’ bikes are not very well tailored to the people riding them. You only touch your bike with your feet, seat, and hands, but a poorly fitted bike can hurt you all over! Fortunately there are a lot of options for moving or changing these contact points according to what works best for you. That’s what bike fitting is about – assessing your body and your riding style and setting the bike up so that it works well for you.

If you are a casual cyclist, a properly fitted bike means a more comfortable, stable, and efficient experience on the road. This keeps you safe, boosts your confidence, and makes riding much more enjoyable. For more serious riders, the improved handling and power transfer of a well-fitted bike will help you avoid injury and allow you to go further, faster.
