When was the last time you felt pain and discomfort free on your bicycle? Does your seat feel like a torture device? Do your hands go numb? Does your back feel stiff? Is your neck tight? Do your feet get tingly? Are you able to ride for more than an hour on the bike path? Are you unable to reach and comfortably ride in the drops on your road bike? If you answered yes to any of these, then you can benefit from a bicycle fitting.

Pedal Power offers several fitting services that will create a seamless marriage between your bicycle and your body. You'll be amazed at how comfortable you can be atop your ride!

Pedal Power also offers add-ons to our fitting services to allow them to be even further tailored to your specific cycling needs:
All fittings are scheduled by appointment. When you are going to arrive for your fitting, you will need to bring all of your regular cycling clothing (jersey, shorts, shoes, etc). Snug fitting cycling clothing is importatnt as it allows your fitter to observe the contours of your body when you are pedaling. If you do not own cycling shorts or a jersey, we have an assortment for sale. Consider arriving early should you need to try on some options to find your favorite fit.
We utilize many aspects, theories & techniques learned at Trek Precision Fit classes. For more information on what we do during a fitting, watch this quick video:
