Bike Fitting

It's all about finding the sweet spot on your bike!

Every bike rider deserves a professional bike fit. How you sit and how you fit on your bike determines how comfortable and how efficient you are. Muscles work best in an optimum range of motion. Outside that range, body tissues are strained, power decreased, and discomfort or injury are more likely. We can adjust your existing bike, size you for a new bike, or design a custom bike so that you're within that ideal range of motion for your muscles and within the limits of your flexibility. The result will be comfort, efficiency and safety. A bike that fits well is just easier to ride.

Saddle Fitting

Saddle Fitting: $25-$50

A comfortable and supportive connection to the saddle is the foundation to your cycling position. How the saddle supports your pelvis directly affects how you use your legs, torso, arms and neck, to pedal your bike. Both the front and the back of your saddle need to support you comfortably. If you are experiencing pain, numbness, abrasion, or overall discomfort, you need to consider a new saddle or a new saddle position. We are here to help with a selection of our most successful saddles that vary in shape and width. We also have test saddles that you can test ride to really make sure it's right for you. If you need guidance or personal one-on-one attention contact Diny. She is our saddle fitting specialist and is happy to talk to you about your butt!
