You don’t have to be a pro cyclist to benefit from a proper bike fit from Bicycle Sport. You don’t have to be a professional model to appreciate clothes that fit, right? Sure, a belt can shore-up a pair of slightly oversized pants, but in the realm of bike fit, a few millimeters can make a huge difference. Better fit means more comfort. And yes, that equates to more control, more power and more speed.
Bicycle Sport uses the Guru Fit Experience machine to find your perfect bike fit. Real-time, on-the-bike adjustments help us get you to that position that will improve overall comfort on the bike, reduce or eliminate on-the-bike discomfort, numbness and tingling, reduce rider fatigue, and yes! make you go faster, if that’s your goal.
What to expect
The Guru Fit Experience available at Bicycle Sport goes something like this: A trained and certified technician will fit you to the Guru machine; it’s just like riding a bike. While you’re spinning, we’ll use the computer t change the bike’s set-up positions. Kind of like being at the optometrist, we’ll ask, “better or worse?” as we continue to dial in the optimum fit for you and your riding style. The Guru Fit Experience offers real-time data as your position changes on the bike. Once we’ve found the perfect fit, we can determine brands, models and ideal sizes that will fit you best. We’ll even be able to apply the numbers to stem length and rise, and handlebar width, reach and drop. Naturally, this data can also be applied to your existing bike as well as a new bike or custom bike build. The Guru computer saves your fit data for future set ups, tweaks, and so on.
Timing is everything
The spring riding season is coming up fast. The earlier you put a fit session on your calendar, the sooner you’ll begin to reap the rewards that greater comfort and efficiency on the bike can provide. Remember, even small changes to your bike’s set-up will require some getting used to, so if you’ve got an “A” race planned, a cross-country tour, or just want to enjoy riding more, you’ll need to take the time for your body to adapt to any changes made to your bike. It’s easy to do: just call Bicycle Sport at 704.335.0323 and ask to make an appointment for a bike fitting. Done. Be sure to block at least an hour for the entire process, bring your cycling shoes, and the shorts you find most comfortable.
