Basics of Bicycle Fit

Whether you ride on road or off, pedal casually or competitively; bicycling is most comfortable and efficient when your bike and components are adjusted to fit your body correctly. We take care to ensure that your new bike is fit to you optimally. As you develop as a cyclist, maintain your equipment and travel with your bicycle, however, your adjustments and needs may change and require fine-tuning. To help, we've put together these guidelines for checking and adjusting your fit. They work for on- and off-road bikes (assuming your bicycle fits in the first place). Keep in mind that we specialize in bike fitting. If you're experiencing a problem that you can't resolve at home, come in and see us.

A proper fit is comfortable and efficient.
