General Information

General Information: Bike Fit is a marriage of bicycle and rider. While the human body does an incredible job of adapting, it is our job as fitters to adjust the bicycle to the rider and not the rider to the bicycle. A rider should not be stretched or contorted to achieve the "ideal" or "Pro" position. Rather, the bicycle should be an extension of the rider and reflect his or her riding style.

Dynamic bike fit is better than static bike fit. Fit while pedaling under load must be considered when fine tuning saddle height and cleat positioning. Static formulas for deciding height do not take into account a riders natural ankling pattern under load. As said before, "we must make the bike fit the rider", and not attempt to place the rider in a prescribed "ideal" or "Pro" position.

Cycling is a sport of repetition. A cadence of 90 revolutions per minute is roughly 5000 revolutions per hour. A six hour century would require 30,000 pedal revolutions. Obviously the positioning on the bike must be as perfect as possible to prevent repetitive use injuries, and this is why a precision fit is a must for even casual cyclists.

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."
