Proper bike fit is especially important for people who cycle on a regular basis or ride longer distances. Without it, cycling can be uncomfortable, and even downright painful. Although many people don’t realize it, poor bike fit is often at the root of whatever afflictions may be keeping them from doing more cycling.The right fit makes all the difference.
Bikes need to be comfortable and efficient. Although the starting point for getting a good bike fit isn’t overly complicated, there can be a lot of variables in getting it just right. We can help with a Cyclesmith Professional Bike Fitting.
CYCLESMITH BIKE FIT - FITTING YOUR BICYCLE TO YOU
A Cyclesmith Professional Bike Fitting is a process which involves assessing many factors, such as flexibility, strength, injury history, cycling goals and aspirations, as well as physical aspects of the body, including your hips, spine, shoulders, arms, and leg length. No two riders have the same body, and we are all unique in our measurements.
Regardless of your cycling aspirations, a Cyclesmith Professional Bike Fitting will optimize your position on your bicycle, minimize risk of injury from over stressed muscles and joints, and maximize your cycling performance.
Riding a bicycle should be virtually pain free. Injuries caused by riding are generally a result of improper bike position.
