Hi Folks,

Here is an overview of what will be covered at our Fit Clinic.

Fitting Principles

1. Sizing Tools, explain what the Fit Kit is used for, why, and level of accuracy of over 95 percent 

for getting and incredibly accurate range of bike size, stem, and seat height.

2. Fitting Tools- Using the principles of the Fit Kit we use the measurements as ground zero. Using the current bike measurements (if applicable) the Fit Kit numbers are placed as a comparison.

Next the sizing cycle is used to determine the NEW position (custom fit) , and  simulates a correct position based on both Fit Kit and current bike data. Also bone measurements of your foot are made to place the cleats in the most bio mechanical efficient position. 

We strive to use the best tools we can provide that are accurate and easy for the customer to repeat on all of their bicycles.

4. Use total data to determine bio mechanical needs of each customer based on





5. Simulate new position on the trainer to determine how the customer responds to the changes,

sometimes the customer is not capable of meeting those measurements based on our principles.

Comfort and efficiency are the most important features of our Fitting process. We listen to the customers needs, injuries, and problems with their current bikes and strive to provide superior customer service and expertise to create the best Fit possible.
