WHAT TO EXPECT 

Every fit starts with a brief interview between you and your trained Body Geometry FIT technician. The 3 hour Body Geometry FIT process that follows will help your fitter fully understand you, your riding and your body’s needs through:

PRE-FIT INTERVIEW

These questions allow your fitter to focus of their flexibility assessment of you. By learning your injury and riding history, flexibility issues that will affect your saddle position, handlebar drop and stance width can be anticipated. 

20-POINT FLEXIBILITY ASSESSMENT

This series of evaluations provides an accurate picture of your flexibility and other physical attributes that will determine your final riding position. Assessments include foot structure, knee position, spinal curve, and hip flexion, among others.

SIDE VIEW ANALYSIS

By assessing the side view of you on your bike, your fitter will establish a correct neutral position that’s both powerful and comfortable by precisely adjusting seat height, handlebar height, stem length and cleat position.

FRONT VIEW ANALYSIS 

Analysis from frontal view will optimize your hip, knee and foot alignment for greater performance and balanced power delivery. Includes analysis of pedal and shoe placement and squareness on the saddle.

After a week or so, our technician will call you to discuss the effectiveness of the adjustments and answer any other questions or concerns you may have
