Finding the Right Fit for Your Bike

 

1. Bike fitting is an ongoing process not just for when you purchase a new bike. Your body is
always changing due to fitness level, weight and strength. You should have your bike fitted at
least once a year.

2. Fitting can take 2-3 hours and should include:
a. An interview of your medical history
b. Flexibility testing
c. Analysis of your biomechanics

3. Get fit prior to a big event to improve efficiency

4. You want your shoes to be snug but you should not have pain, tingling or numbness in your feet; this may be a result of improper cleat or saddle placement
