New Bike Fit

In addition to including all of the analysis and steps in the Existing Bike Fitting, the New Bike Fit also includes the use of computer design software designed specifically with the Size Cycle to help you find the frame/bike options that match your position as best as possible.

We will review options with you and discuss how the characteristics of each frame and component you are considering match up with your riding style, body and needs. If you do not purchase a bike at the time of your fitting, you will receive a form documenting key bike frame geometry ranges as well as top recommendations for bike models and sizes that fit you well.

The cost of a good fit is paid back instantly. By knowing what you need before you buy a new bike, you will save time and money by not having to go through frustrating and expensive component swaps after the fact or realizing that you bought a frame or part that simply doesn’t work well for you.

2.5-4 hours. $375 w/out bike purchase. Only $175 with bike purchase.

$200 of this fit may be credited towards the purchase of a new bike at anytime.

Note:  Comprehensive CAD custom frame design templates (down to the mm) are available for an additional fee with this fitting without bike purchase. Please inquire.

Fitting Steps

Not all fit systems are the same or produce consistent results. We pride ourselves on viewing rider positioning scientifically and using a system that we have developed through our training, background and experience. We offer attention to detail that is found in only a very small number of places in the country and we offer an array of services that is unparalleled in any other single location.

1) Comprehensive InterviewEvery Fit Werx fit starts with a detailed interview that covers everything from your cycling goals and riding habits, to injuries as well as existing problems with your current bike fit.
2) Limb and Skeletal MeasurementsBy taking skeletal measurements, we determine starting points and gain knowledge on how your body is proportioned. It is important to note that these measurements are designed to give us general perspective as to how you are proportioned and do not directly determine the end riding position.
3) Range of Motion and Stability AnalysisWe assess your range of motion, flexibility and stability in key cycling muscle groups so that we can properly align your body and build a position around your individual capabilities and needs. This helps us maximize your strength, comfort and efficiency on the bike.
4) Biomechanical Alignment Assessment and Cleat AlignmentStrong buildings are built on strong foundations. A good fit is not any different. By assessing your skeletal structure for functional and structural limb length differences and reviewing the dynamics of your foot and leg biomechanics, we can stabilize your feet and legs for greater power, comfort and injury prevention. Often we will recommend custom cycling footbeds and cant wedges to accommodate for pronation/supination and forefoot varus/valgus. We make sure to put your feet, legs, pedals and shoes into the most aligned and powerful position possible.
gebioMized Saddle Analysis 5) Digital Motion Analysis Size Cycle Positioning Session w/Pressure Scan
When used properly, an infinitely adjustable Size Cycle is the best fit tool available. Modern video analysis technology makes it even better by allowing you to see your riding technique and key positions and angles during and after your fitting. In this step, we place you on the Size Cycle and work with you to build your position.Computerized motion analysis technology, from companies like Dartfish, Retul and CompuTrainer, is used to make sure your body is aligned precisely, to record your position and key angles, and to review the efficiency of your pedal stroke.A Fit Werx fitting includes a preliminary gebioMized pressure scan to assess saddle pressure, pelvic tracking and balance.  We also discuss and demonstrate muscle recruitment patterns, riding techniques and drills that can help you better understand and maximize your pedaling economy. The end result is a position that is as efficient and comfortable as possible.

6) Apply the data from the size cycle to a computer design template to find the production bikes that fit you best or to design and build the ride of your dreams.Once the best fitting options are known, we’ll discuss the other important variables beyond fit to help guarantee that you make as confident and as informed decision as possible. The goal is to make sure you not only get a bike that fits as well as possible, but that also rides as well as possible for your individual needs. There is no reason to compromise.
