Benefits of a Professional Bike Fit
Cramped shoulders and knee pain shouldn’t be a part of your ride. In fact, riding with any type of discomfort is unnecessary. There are various ways to adjust your bike to meet your needs.
Getting a Body Geometry Bicycle Fitting will fine-tune your bike positioning to your body, making your ride more comfortable and efficient.

Body Geometry Bicycle Fitting
Kevin, a certified Body Geometry Fit Specialist, will evaluate your unique needs and tailor your bike position and equipment to your body. The process includes:
To get started, Kevin will ask you about your goals and riding preferences.
Flexibility and body measurements will be recorded to aid the customization.
You’ll jump on your bike and Kevin will assess your current positioning.
Based on the gathered details, Kevin will personalize your bike positioning and equipment options. Typically, this includes adjustments to your saddle, shoes, footbeds, cleats, and handlebar.
After a few good rides to test the fit, you’ll come in for a follow-up session to ensure your new positioning is helping you maximize efficiency and comfort on your rides.
