Bike Fit - from $150
A bike fitting is a complex balance, optimizing compromise between aerobic efficiency, aerodynamics and power while prioritizing injury prevention.
Bike fitting offered at capital cycles begins with a discussion about your riding, your history, your body, and your intent. We follow this with some assessment of off-bike stability, strength and flexibility.
We examine your stance while riding your bike on an indoor trainer. At this time we assess how well a given bike or position is suited to you. Variables such as stem length, stem angle, handlebar width, handlebar reach/drop/shape, saddle shape and angle, saddle height, saddle setback, crank arm length, q-factor and float are assessed on the bike and adjusted to ensure an optimum, tailored position.
We follow up each fitting with assessment which scales from verbal catch-ups, to comprehensive re-assessment as deemed necessary- we understand that fitting and adaptation is a process which can take more than one session- let us work with you to achieve your desired outcomes on your bike.
