Bike Fitting Packages

Bike fittings happen in one of two ways; static or dynamic. Static Fitting is performed in a non-motion position. Dynamic Fitting is performed by considering initial static position, followed up with an in-motion riding position. Dynamic Fitting is more representative of your riding style out of doors. To simulate the outdoor riding position, dynamic fitting is achieved by using an indoor trainer and varied efforts.

Since cycling is a sport of repetition, the rider benefits directly from the proper fit. There isn’t any reason to ride inefficiently, with discomfort, or pain any longer.

The 3 types of Bike Fit are outlined below, along with other services you may want to consider. Once you determine the level of Bike Fit you desire, we will use our skills, knowledge and experience to help you achieve your cycling goals. We are interested in your questions and will help you with any decisions you have to make.

Advanced 3D Fit
The goal is to have a successful 2D fit and ensure ideal alignment of the hip/knee/foot throughout the pedal stroke while minimizing stress on any of these joints.
$250
BG Fit DATA
The BG DATA (Dual Angle Technical Analysis) System brings a greater level of analysis and accuracy to our already distinguished fitting services. The Advanced DATA System employs two video cameras and a proprietary software suite to record the rider in motion and helps Jan analyze the rider’s position under realistic efforts. The fitter applies rider-specific solutions based upon the individual’s unique goals, abilities, and physiology as a part of the BG Fit method. The BG method focuses on proper biomechanics, comfort, and efficiency while minimizing injury potential. The BG Fit DATA System’s side and frontal profile analysis show the rider the changes in near real time. Proper rider positioning, knee tracking, back and neck profile and frontal area can all be analyzed with the DATA System. Now you don’t have to take the fitter’s word for it – you can see and feel the difference for yourself!

Fitting Notes:

*For any Bike Fit or cleat installation, additional accessories are separately charged. 24-48 hours may be necessary for repairs / installations as a result of bike fitting changes. Appointments are made when product is on order.

Pre Fit Interview and Assessments

This is performed for the 2D and 3D Bike Fittings. The pre fit interview will consider the rider’s history, previous injuries, and goals. The 2D and 3D Bike Fittings will have a range of exercises to cover for the flexibility and structural assessments. The 3D assessment includes consideration of the biomechanics of the pedal stroke, while addressing the specific needs of the individual’s feet, squareness of the rider on the saddle and any leg length discrepancies.

Flexibility Assessment

This is used to help determine a rider’s flexibility limits. Flexibility affects how comfortable a rider can be on the bike. This evaluation will help us determine possible positions for the rider in order to maximize their potential. The fit technician will guide the customer through a range of exercises to evaluate their flexibility.

Structural Assessment

This addresses the rider’s rear foot and forefoot angulations. This evaluation helps to determine the customer’s need for shims, wedges and/or foot beds. A supported foot offers stability and power which ultimately affects the alignment of the hip/knee/foot.  Since cycling is a sport of repetition, the rider benefits directly from the proper fit. There isn’t any reason to ride inefficiently, with discomfort, or pain any longer.
