Get the most out of your cycling experience. A professional bike fit will make you more comfortable and improve endurance, while increasing power and efficiency when riding.

Chris’ Philosophy
Chris believes cycling should be enjoyable for everyone — regardless of size, shape, weight, objective, experience — and that proper bike fit is necessary to make that happen.

Unfortunately, bicycles are symmetrical, fixed machines that force human body into unnatural position and movements. Gravity, balance, and alignment are redistributed from standing, making comfort and efficient positioning difficult to find, subjectively. We only know what we know, and frequently anything better than that is great!

Each person has unique attributes, as individual as his/her voice, and there are far more cyclists than bike models/sizes. To address this problem, manufacturers provide components in a variety of models/sizes, designed to accommodate bike owners needing more adjustability than the “stock-fit.”

Professional bike fitters are employed to determine the exacting adjustments and components necessary to integrate bike and rider — and some are better than others.

My opinion is that great fitters combine experience, education, mechanical aptitude, artistry, and humility with good listening skills to meet each client as an individual, important person.
