The University Bicycles Fit

Your bike fit should be a very unique and personalized experience.  Here at University Bicycles, we believe that each fit session should be tailored to your individual needs.

This is your fit – how can we help you make the most of it?

Our bike fit is a fluid process of joining a unique individual rider and an amazingly efficient machine.  The union of those two is different every time.  We give your fit session the time and space it needs to meet your specific goals.  There is no formula, machine or calculation to determine your ideal position.  Drawing on decades of experience and training, and using the best tools in the industry, we work with you and your bike to find the most harmonious union of the two based on your specific goals.

Bike fit has been integrated into the foundation of University Bicycles.  Our bike fit perspective has informed our service department on both repairs and new bike builds.  It has influenced our buyers toward an inventory of effective ergonomic equipment.  Correct bike fit and sizing is a key element of every sales interaction at University Bicycles.

What matters most to you?

We have worked with thousands of cyclists over the years and almost universally, midway through the fit process, people say “I should have done this years ago.”  Why wait?  Let us help you refine your bike fit position today!

During your fit session we will discuss any injury history or problem areas that affect your riding.  We will also assess your flexibility and range of motion to determine what role any limitation might play in your ideal position. Once on the bike, we work from the ground up to stabilize the foundation of pedaling by giving the foot and ankle the support and position it needs to pedal most efficiently.  We work up to the the saddle width, shape, design and position to establish the best biomechanical position for you.  Then we discuss the possibilities for the front end of the bicycle like handlebar position, shape, height and posture.  We also evaluate all functional adjustments for brake lever reach and shifter position for optimum placement.

Our fit experience is without an agenda.  Our fit session is tailored to your specific goals and needs.
