General Information

General Information: What size bike do you ride? A 54cm? A medium? How do you know? Many cyclists buy new bikes simply based off the size of their last bike. Can you really "stand over" a bike and tell if it fits?

You may be surprised to know that often two bikes that claim the same size will actually fit very differently underneath a rider due to the actual geometry of the bike. Welcome to the GPP Cycling Performance Bike Fit Institute℠ where we like to flip things around. Instead of buying a bike and then doing a bike fit, how about doing the bike fit first to ensure you are spending your money on the correct bike? To do that, we utilize the F.I.S.T. performance fitting methodology on The GURU Fit System? advanced dynamic fit bike to ensure we, together, find the right balance of comfort and power to ensure the most productive ride. Dynamic means you are riding the fit bike while we make the changes allowing you to instantly feel the benefits of a change. Seat height, bottom bracket offset, cockpit; all of these are carefully selected to find both comfort and power in your final riding position. We also utilize the Retul Muve and Precision Fit Bike dynamic fit bikes for specialty and/or entry fits in the Rogers and Fayetteville Shops.

We also use BikeFit methodology to align your biomechanical chain from your feet up through your knees and hips to give you a more stable pedaling platform with additional power. Ensuring you are biomechanically aligned also reduces the risk of injury and helps ensure you are riding on into your twilight years without issues derived from thousands and thousands of pedaling revolutions on a misaligned setup. Once the fit is complete, we use your fit coordinates (Stack and Reach) to help you select a bike that will truly fit underneath you in the way you selected during the fitting session. Buy with confidence and ride with comfort and power by getting fit first!

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
