Our personal bikes fit so we are comfortable, efficienct, and fast. Read more to see why Andrew and Stephane can help make your bike fit you better too.
A Cyclesmith Bike Fit is a process which involves assessing many factors, such as flexibility, strength, injury history, cycling goals and aspirations, and physical aspects of the body; your hips, spine, shoulders, arms, and leg length. Gone are the days of low and long "Italian race" fitting. No two riders have the same body; your body is unique in its measurements (it's what your parents gave you). A Cyclesmith Bike Fit is specially designed to fit your bicycle to you.
Regardless of your cycling aspirations, a Cyclesmith Bike Fit will optimize your position on your bicycle. This will minimize the risk of injury from overstressed muscles and joints while maximizing your cycling performance.
Riding a bicycle should be virtually pain free, as cycling is a low-impact activity compared to many sports. Injuries caused by riding generally are a result of improper bike position.
Before proceeding, you need to have a clear idea of what your riding style is. You should ask yourself; "Why am I riding this bike?" Are you a commuter? Are you perhaps curious about long-distance tour riding? Are you a triathlete racing at an Ironman or at the local duathlon? Are you an aspiring racer, perhaps with dreams of the Tour that won't subside? Your bike fitting needs and associated package will differ according to your answer.
