Basic Fit – $150
The ultimate bike fit. We set your saddle height, saddle fore/aft, stem length, handlebar height, and more for a correct fit. Allow 90 minutes minimum. Pro Bike fits include free installation and 10% off additional fit components like seatposts, stems, and shoe wedges. After taking your Pro Bike Fit measurements, transfer fits to additional bicycles are $75. Email Matt McLoone at our Brookland location (or call 202-832-2453) for an appointment or more information.
Saddle Fit – $45
All of our pro bike fits start at the saddle, so for our quickest bike fit we focus on just that: your saddle position. Saddle fits include basic adjustments to your saddle, seatpost, handlebar, and stem, and can be performed on a walk-in basis without a prior appointment.
Saddle Tests – FREE
The search for the right saddle is often a lengthy one. Fortunately, we have over 30 test saddles from Fizik, Brooks, Giant, Liv, and Terry at our Brookland store. Demo any saddle for a one week trial period, and test as many saddles as necessary to find the right saddle for you!
Where do bike fits occur and what should I bring?
Our Pro Bike Fit studio and test ride saddles are only available at our Brookland store. Pro Bike Fits require your bike, riding shoes, the correct pedals and shoe cleats, and your full riding attire including chamois riding shorts. Matt said that bringing a great attitude, an open mind, and cookies wouldn’t hurt, though.
How close to my ride or race should I get a bike fit?
It is best to plan at least a month ahead of your ride or race. Following a professional bike fit, the cyclist needs to spend time on the bike before they decide if the changes are right for them. It is common for the fit process to take a couple of follow-up consultations before the “right fit” is discovered. Additionally, if replacement parts are needed, the process could be delayed by several days.
What if my current bike is the wrong size?
This is a question we can’t answer over the phone, so we’ll have to see you and the bike in person to determine fit. If a frame size is a couple centimeters off, a bike fit can often help the cyclist to feel comfortable despite the frame size. If the frame size discrepancy is greater, there isn’t much hope for a bike fit correcting the problem.
Should I get fitted for my hybrid?
Bike fitting on a hybrid bicycle typically involves a $45 saddle fit. Unless the cyclist is experiencing legitimate pain due to the riding position, a hybrid is not appropriate for a $150 Professional Bike Fit.
I’m buying a bike. What size am I?
Determining your bicycle size is a process that often requires testing several bike sizes and even multiple different models. There’s extreme variability in sizes between manufacturers, models, and model years, so just because your last bike was a 54 cm doesn’t mean your next one should be. That’s where our trained sales staff comes in.
