BIKE FIT SERVICES

WHY INVEST IN A PROFESSIONAL BIKE FIT?

To be more comfortable, your bicycle must be adjusted to suit your unique body. The proper bicycle fitting must consider your cycling history, riding style, fitness and flexibility as well as dimensional measurements.

To be safer, adjustments must allow an optimal weight distribution on your bicycle. Too often, bicycles have poor handling characteristics caused by improper fit. Wobbly cornering, for example, is frequently caused by a poor bicycle fit, which creates an incorrect center of gravity on the bicycle and unsure steering. A proper fit avoids extremes that might reduce your cycling safety.

To be faster, adjustments should promote your most efficient and powerful pedaling technique. Every body is different, so fitting formulas based solely on static body measurements simply don't work for many people. Competitive cyclists must have a bicycle adjusted to them that accounts for their strengths, weaknesses, and unique fit requirements. 

Fitting practices based on cycling tradition are rapidly being replaced by methods based on scientific research. BGI strives to use methods based on the most current fitting knowledge combined with the real-world experience gained from thousands of fittings.  Every BGI bicycle fit is unique because every cyclist has a unique combination of expectations and needs. Whether you're looking for increased comfort to finish longer rides or increased speed for a better chance to win that key race in your season, you will benefit from a BGI bicycle fitting.
