If you have back pain, knee pain, hot foot or any other sort of nagging pain, you owe it to yourself to get a bike fit at the store. When your bike fits right, you feel good, more power is produced, and you can ride longer and more consistently with less or no pain.
Don Wilcox explains it this way “Our goal is to get our customers in the most neutral body position that we can by not exceeding their flexibility limitations. If we get this right in the bike fit process, issues including tingling, numbness & sore joints are eliminated or at least greatly reduced and so is the chance of injury.”
We are combining our knowledge & training using the Specialized BG FIT (Body Geometry Fit Integration Technology) with the Retul bike fit Body Geometry system.
“Getting the Retul system is the store is a game changer, it makes the process so much faster and allows for more on the spot experimentation. Not only that we can take old bike measurements and dial them right into the Retul system, allowing for an instant canvas to work from when buying a new bike off the floor. Bike fit isn’t just for the new buyer either, as we get older our bodies change and often making some minor adjustments to an existing bike will make all the difference in how comfortable the ride can be!”
Both Greg and Donnie have been specially trained by Specialized and have passed their exams. They possess the proven skills and expertise to systematically tailor your bike position and equipment to your body! Our goal with the Retul technology is to provide the most accurate and comprehensive bike fit data to help make better fit decisions. A great fit will allow our customer to experience more comfort and better performance on the bike, or buy a new bike will full confidence in selecting the right model and size!
We are thrilled to be the only bike shop in the area offering the Retul bike fit experience!
We're Specialized BG Fit Certified Since 2007
1. PRE-FIT Interview
Every fit- whether it's for a novice or experienced cyclist- starts with a brief interview between a trained technician and rider that addresses the individual's injury history, needs and goals.
2. Flexibility Assessment
This evaluation gains an accurate picture of the individual's flexibility and other physical attributes, including assessment of foot structure, knee position, spinal curve, shoulder extension, hip flexion and leg length, among others.
3. Side View
Assesed using the side view of the rider, the goal is to deliver a correct neutral position that's both powerful and comfortable through adjustments to seat height, handlebar height, stem length and cleat position.
4. Front View
Analysis from frontal view to optimize hip, knee and foot alignment for greater performance and balanced power delivery. includes analysis of pedal and shoe placement and squareness on the saddle.
5. Follow Up
After a week or so, the technician calls to discuss the effectiveness of the adjustments and to answer any other questions or concerns the rider may have.
