The right bike fit will benefit all types of riders – from recreational and competitive cyclists to multisport athletes. A professional bike fit by The Bike Rack will optimize your power, comfort, efficiency and safety on the bike – and in some cases, avoid serious injury or making an existing injury worse.

We schedule fitting appointments Monday-Friday from noon to 5 p.m. and on most Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To schedule a bike fitting appointment, call the shop at 202-387-2453.

Custom Fit – $175

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 will use a comprehensive rider/bicycle analysis to find your optimal riding position. We can fit on your current bike or if you are considering a new bike. Allow 1.5 to 2 hours.

We go through our complete Custom Bike Fit for a proper road bike fit. We will install aero bars on your road bike and make adjustments to find your optimal aero position without sacrificing your optimal road position. Price of Aero Bars not included. Allow 2 hours.

We use the measurements from your initial bike fit and transfer them to your second bike or new bike.

FAQs

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.
