If the shoe fits, wear it. If the bike fits, ride it… a lot. Fitting bikes to people is actually a skill you learn from riding them and fitting a lot of people. Good fit lets you ride until your legs are tired. Your contact points should not limit your rides. If your bike fit is good, your bike rides will be good as well. A well-fit bike is a joy to own and often tricks you into riding more.
What makes good fit? The length of your bike and your torso are tied together closer than the size of your frame and the length of your legs. We calculate the best possible top tube and stem combinations that place your upper body upon the bike in an ergonomic and stable position. This position saves your strength for pedaling not fighting the improper position and makes riding more enjoyable.
Fit is so important to all riders of all levels. Everyone riding today could use a fit Tune up, and if you ride in pain then you need help. With new riders a well-fit bike keeps you from learning bad habits. For experienced riders or racers a fitting could give you that little extra to take you to the next level.
