The Basic Fitting is comprised of 2 main parts. The first part is an in-depth assessment your body structure and measurement of ranges of motion. This is crucial in a bike fitting as we are fitting the bike to how YOUR body works and moves comfortably. Measurements are documented so that when the bike is adjusted to you the ranges of motion are not exceeded.
The second part is actually fitting the bike to YOUR body. This is done while take measurements while you are sitting on the bike. The measurement style used is referred to as "Static Measuring" meaning measurements are taken while you hold varies positions on the bike aiming for optimal ranges of power, efficiency, and comfort. This method has been used for years and until recent improvements in bike fitting technology was the fitting protocol used from beginner cyclists to pros alike.

Whether you’re trying to resolve a nagging pain, looking for every crucial watt to get faster, or just want to be as comfortable as possible on your bike the RETÜL Bike fitting is for you!
Like the Basic Fitting the first part of the process is an in-depth pre-fit anatomical assessment. We look at your body structure as well as review of past injuries. This is crucial in a bike fitting as we are fitting the bike to how YOUR body works and moves comfortably. Measurements are documented so that when the bike is adjusted to you, your ranges of motion are not exceeded.
Next, we move to the bike and apply 8 LED markers on anatomical points of your body that will track and measure your movements on the RETÜL Vantage Motion Capture System. The RETÜL Vantage system is used to collect real-time, three-dimensional data from each pedal stroke creating a dynamic fit experience.
The real-time dynamic data is compiled into the RETÜL bike fit software so that the we can look at the numbers, which show degrees of movement that cannot be seen with the naked eye, and make adjustments to your bike based on the fit data, pre-fit physical assessment findings and your goals on the bike.
Bike fitting is a two-way street meaning feedback from the rider is the most valuable tool here. I’ll get your perfect fit by the numbers but with your help together we’ll find the “Sweet Spot”
