Benefits of a Professional Bike Fit

All new bike purchases at Proteus and Patuxent Adventure Center include complementary bike sizing, ensuring you the proper saddle height, ideal leg and knee extension positioning, and a comfortable handlebar reach, 

To go to the next level of power and comfort, some cyclists may have bike fit needs beyond sizing.

If you are having discomfort on the bike, are working through an injury, or looking for more power and higher performance, then you may choose to invest in a professional bike fit. A professional bike fitting focuses on proper alignment of five touch points: hands, feet, and seat (and forearms if you’re using aero bars). During a professional fitting we start with an interview to go over your long and short term goals, problems on the bike, and medical/surgical history that may impact your cycling. We evaluate your position on the bike and make adjustments based on measurements of body angles and your feedback. 

What to Expect During Your Fit

For Flat Pedal Pro-Fits, we get you positioned comfortably on your bike, with possible adjustments to saddle height, leveling, and fore-aft positioning, and stem length and angle for comfortable reach and hand position. We analyze your leg and hip alignment on the trainer and take sit bone measurements for saddle selection and adjustments.

For Pro-Fits, we will conduct an interview and flexibility assessment, and then take foot measurements for foot-pedal interface adjustments and sit bone measurements for saddle selection and adjustments. We analyze your leg and hip alignment on the trainer. Finally, we work up to arm and hand cockpit positioning. Please wear form-fitting bike clothes, bring your bike shoes, and plan on doing a lot of pedaling! We have a coffee shop where you can get more water, food, caffeine as needed.

Bike Fit Notes -- We will gradually add slots in for more fittings this Summer. Thanks for your patience, and please contact us if you have difficulty using the new Bike Fit scheduling calendar system.  -Laurie
