Bicycle Fitting

Who Should Get a Bike Fit?

Anyone who plans to spend any length of time riding a bicycle will benefit greatly from a professional bike fit. Whether you are a weekend warrior riding 15 miles on the bike path, an avid cyclist preparing for your 10th Pan Mass Challenge, or you are preparing for your next Ironman triathlon, a proper fit can:

  • Improve overall rider comfort
  • Help prevent cycling-induced repetitive stress injuries
  • Reduce or eliminate back, knee, neck and wrist pain
  • Reduce or eliminate “hot foot”
  • Reduce or eliminate saddle discomfort and genital numbness
  • Reduce or eliminate numbness in the hands and fingers
  • Reduce rider fatigue
  • Help you get more enjoyment out of cycling

A good fit can also improve riding performance, because it allows the rider to use multiple muscle groups in the most effective and efficient manner.

When Should You Get a Bike Fit?

The ideal time to get a bike fit is before you buy a bike, so you can select one that is best suited to your body geometry and riding preferences. No one wants to spend thousand(s) on a bike that isn't right for them. But if you’re not in the market for a new bike, that’s okay too. A bike fit can also give you the optimum riding position for use on your current bike. 

How Much Does a Bike Fit Cost?

Our Guru dynamic bike fits range between $150-$350. It might sound expensive, but dollar-for-dollar it's the best thing you can do to improve your cycling. And if you decide to buy a bike from us after your fit, we'll give you $ credits toward your new bike purchase (see below)!

Why a Guru Bike Fit?

We are proud to leverage the latest Guru Dynamic Fit Unit (DFU), the most advanced bike fit system in the world, and a Guru-certified fitter on staff. Unlike other fit systems, the Guru DFU makes adjustments in real-time so you can instantly feel the difference that even small changes make. This is critical because it's very difficult to compare, for example, a 5mm difference in saddle height if you have to get off the bike to alter the position. All of Guru's measurements can be adjusted in real-time so you can experiment with saddle height, handlebar height, stem length, etc. while getting immediate and accurate feedback. The Guru system also delivers a personalized fit report that outlines your exact riding position coordinates and tailored bike recommendations (from a database with over 10,000 bike models) to match your riding preferences.
