How well your bicycle fits you determines a lot. It can mean the difference between comfort and pain, fast and slow, safe and unsafe. Pro racer or beginner, no one should be uncomfortable on a bike.
Proper fitting starts with selecting the right size bike frame. Most of our bikes are not one-size-fits-all, but rather, come in different frame measurements to help you obtain the best overall fit. We can help you determine the ideal size that would offer you the best match to your body type and riding style.
How does your riding style relate to proper fit? Let’s say you want to cruise the bike paths on a bike that lets you sit upright where you get a good view of the scenery. That calls for a different frame size, bike type and fit approach than, say, a time-trial racer who needs to be positioned for optimum aerodynamics and speed.
Beyond frame size, other components of a bike also contribute greatly to a good fit. Take seats, for instance. What's the best height for your bike seat? How far forward or back of center is your correct seat position? The tilt of the seat is also adjustable. Other factors to know more about include: stem length and height; crankarm length; and, what width and shape of handlebars work best for you.
As a Trek Fit certified dealer we can help you get the most enjoyment from riding your bike by giving you the best fit available. A detailed fit session will make you more comfortable, efficient and have you riding longer.
Traditional bike fitting methods fit the rider to a preconceived idea of what rider on a bike should look like. This is wrong. We want to make the bike fit the rider, not the rider fit the bike. Our fit service takes into consideration variables of anatomy, flexibility, range of motion and riding style.
Our Premium Bike Fit cost $175.00 and the process usually takes about 2 hours and includes:
Be prepared with your bike, shoes, pedals, and cycling clothing. A new fit does take a few rides for your body to adapt to the changes. We recommend having your fit done during training and not right before a big ride or race.
We back up every fit with a guarantee. If you are still experiencing any discomfort after 15-20 rides we encourage you to come back for a follow up at no extra charge.
