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 sized to you. 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 some guidelines for checking and perfecting your fit. They work for most bikes (assuming you're on the right-size bicycle and not trying to fit a too-small or too-large model you purchased at a yard sale, for example).
Keep in mind that these are only some guidelines, If you're experiencing a problem that you can't fix at home, drop in at the Shop and we'll be happy to help you out!
