Road Bike  and Time Trial Fitting (1 on 1 Session)

Road Bike and Time Trial Fitting: Bike Fitting Bike fitting is about fitting the bike to you (the rider).

A good bike fit involves on the road analysis across various scenarios: climbing, descending, rolling terrain and flat terrain. We want to watch what happens when you are under real world stress (not simulated / trainer environment).

Our dynamic fit process helps ensure that you are riding the way your bike was designed to be ridden. By analyzing your pedaling style and current fit on the bike, we will tweak your position to maximize both comfort and efficiency. We want to fit the bike to your biomechanics and not the other way around.

You will need to bring cycling shoes, jersey and shorts and your bike.

Each Sessions is $150 and takes approximately 1.5-2hrs.
