Custom Bicycle Fitting
Being comfortable on your bike is one of the most important aspects in riding. Some riders are lucky enough to find a stock bike that fits very well and may only require small adjustments to find the ideal riding position, but this rarely happens. Other riders are lucky enough to have a custom frame built to match their body geometry for that ideal fitting bike, but this is quite costly and also very rare. Most riders end up buying a stock bike and making changes and adjustments to the bike's setup to achieve their ideal riding position. This is what we call bike fitting.
ike fitting is important to anyone who rides. Whether you are a recreational mountain biker or a road bike racer, adjustments to the fit of your bike can have many benefits. Cycling demands a lot from your body because of the arched over bike riding position, as well as the repetitive pedaling motion for long periods of time. A proper fit can improve your comfort and performance as well as reduce your chance of injury.
