A professional bike fit will help optimize your comfort, efficiency and power on your bike. When your fit is right, you should feel comfortable and natural with no aches and pain. The right bike fit will benefit all types of riders – from recreational and competitive cyclists to multisport athletes and randonneurs.
We schedule fitting appointments Monday-Friday from 10 to 5 p.m. and on most Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. To schedule a bike fitting appointment, please call our Brookland shop at 202-832-2453 or email Matt.
Basic Fit – $125
Perfect for when your schedule does not allow for a Custom Bike Fit. We will set your saddle height, saddle fore/aft, stem length, and more for a correct fit. We do not suggest this option for competitive cyclists or those with medical issues. Allow 1 hour.
Custom Fit – $250
Perfect for the cyclist who is experiencing more than just discomfort on the bike. We will conduct a complete interview followed by a series of tests for range of motion and flexibility. We use motion analysis software for real time data collection and instant replay with the goal of maximizing performance, power and comfort on your road bike.
The Custom Fit is best suited for the competitive road cyclist and multisport athlete. Allow 1.5 to 2.5 hours depending on need.
Transfer Fit – $125
We use the measurements from your initial bike fit and transfer them to your second bike or new bike.
Should I get fitted for my hybrid?
Bike fitting on a hybrid bicycle typically involves only the saddle height adjustment. Unless the cyclist is experiencing legitimate pain due to the riding position, a hybrid is not appropriate for a professional bike fit.
What if my bike is the wrong size for me?
If a frame is one or two 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 is not much hope for a bike fit correcting the problem.
How close to my ride or race should I get a bike fit?
It is best to plan at least two to three weeks 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 appointments before the “right fit” is discovered. Additionally, if replacement parts are needed, the process could be delayed by several days.
