WHO NEEDS A BIKE FIT?


A bike fit is beneficial for cyclists of all levels, from casual riders to competitive athletes.

Our Fit Process

 From the moment you step into our shop, our fit expert will guide you through the process, ensuring every aspect of your bike fit is tailored to your individual needs and goals. Your bike fit specialist will keep you involved and informed throughout the process, guiding you to a better understanding of how your body and bike work together to keep you moving forward. Let's dive in and discover how we can elevate your riding experience together.

Welcome, Bike set-up

When you arrive for your bike fit at Western Cycle, you'll be greeted warmly by our friendly staff and shown to our fitting area. Here, you'll have a chance to get changed into your cycling gear before we begin. We'll then set up your bike on our Wahoo Kickr Rollr, take detailed measurements of your current bike setup, and transfer those measurements to our Trek Precision Fit bike, ensuring a seamless transition that allows us to fine-tune your fit with precision and accuracy.

Interview

During the interview process, we'll take the time to get to know you and your riding habits better. We'll ask you about your cycling experience, including how often you ride, the type of riding you do, and any specific goals you have for your bike fit and cycling in general. We'll also inquire about any past or current injuries, as well as any areas of discomfort or issues you may be experiencing while riding. This thorough assessment allows us to tailor your bike fit to address your individual needs and ensure that you leave our shop feeling comfortable, confident, and ready to conquer the road or trail ahead.

Measurements/mobility

Next, we'll take precise measurements of your body to ensure your bike fit is tailored to your unique anatomy. We'll measure key points such as your knee flexion, torso length, arm length, and more to determine the optimal bike frame size and geometry for your body. Additionally, we'll assess your range of movement and mobility, paying close attention to factors such as hip flexibility, knee alignment, and shoulder mobility. This comprehensive analysis allows us to make informed adjustments to your bike fit that not only maximize your comfort and performance but also help prevent injuries and discomfort down the road.
