Bike Fitting

Custom Bike Design

When you get a bike fit at West Hill, we work with you to address all aspects of cycling to help you achieve your comfort and performance goals. You’ll be evaluated for your body's ability to move and control your position on your bike. We’ll set your bike up so joints and sensitive tissues aren't overloaded and muscles are in their best position to produce force. We can adjust your existing bike, size you for a new bike, or help design a custom bike. Our mission is to help you find the sweet spot of comfort and performance best suited to your individual needs.
