Your Riding Style is Important to Us
How does your riding style affect proper fit? Do you want to ride the bike path on a bike that lets you sit upright where you get a good view of the scenery. That calls for a different fit approach than for a racer who needs to be positioned for optimum power transfer and aerodynamics to attain high speed. We understand that bike fit stars with your intended use and we go from there.
Bike Components are Adjustable
Beyond the size of a bike, the components contribute to a good fit. The placement of the seat is a good example. What is the best height for your bike seat? The tilt of the seat and the forward and back adjustments should also be considered. Other items to know more about include: stem length, stem height, crank length, handlebar width, handlebar shape and many more.
