Join us April 23rd for our rescheduled Fit Clinic
“What is a bike fit and why would I need one?” A professional bike fit should help you feel comfortable and natural on your bike, with no pain. It will optimize your comfort efficiency and power. A fit can benefit all types of riders, from the urban commuter to the long-distance rider to the triathlete.
Still not sure if it’s for you? That’s OK! We are hosting a free bike fit clinic so you can see first hand the process and decide for yourself if a fit is right for you. We will walk you through the process while Matt, our fit specialist, runs tests and makes adjustments on the spot. You can watch a fit first hand and see if it may help you be more comfortable on your bike.
Special offer: Attendees of our fit clinic get 20% off bike fits scheduled after the clinic. Talk to Matt to schedule yours!

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.
