Benefits of a Professional Bike Fit
While all new bike purchases at Proteus include complementary bike sizing, ensuring you the proper saddle height, ideal leg and knee extension positioning, and a comfortable handlebar reach, 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 use video to evaluate your position on the bike and make adjustments based on measurements of body angles and your feedback. If you’re riding with clipless pedals or need to be fitted for shoes/clipless pedals, the fitting takes 2 hours or more. If you’re riding with flat pedals, count on about an hour.
