A proper fit is essential to your comfort and performance on your bike.

We ensure every customer is properly sized to every bike we sell. All our staff will follow a uniform 'bike sizing" process to deliver the most appropriate frame size and an initial body position on your bike before you leave the store. For performance road bike purchases, will include an on the bike fine-tuning for frame selection and body positioning.



Our bike fitters have received accreditted bike fitting training through a number of bike fit programs and collectively have many years of experience with cyclists. We have received training and certification from industry experts such as:

We believe there are three essential components that lead to a successful bike fit:

1) Bike fitting is an optimizing process focused on pain-free riding.
Fitting to your individual riding characteristics is the key to producing "comfortable" power. If you are not comfortable, you can not produce power optimally. Fit must address body size & proportional differences, riding style, muscle imbalances, back and neck pain, saddle soreness, and above all flexibility. As result, bike fitting is often an ongoing process as you become more accustomed to your bike, more physically fit or possibly desire a more aerodynamic position.
Our fit service does not end after you are out the door with your first fit. We often have cusomers return for a further fit session to allow for "tweeks" to your fit once you have some mileage on your new ride position.

2) Every rider is unique.
The fit for every rider is different and the ultimate key concept is "pain-free".  Rider body conditioning, flexibility and medical history are all essential considerations in ensuring a comfortable and pain-free ride. So It is not appropriate to adjust your bicycle by just following a formal procedure without consideration of rider's physical differences, limitations and needs. Knowing when and how to make consructive changes takes expertise, analysis and experience.

3) It's an art supported by some very useful tools
 The reality is that no one "system" can tell you how your bike should optimally fit. No one system factors in your riding style, body shape, injury history, fitness level, bike design, component sizes. the list of factors is huge. This is where the art of bike fitting begins and it takes one-to-one interaction with an experienced fitter to fit your bike properly to your body.

Fitting is done by appointment only. Please call or email us to schedule your fit appointment.
