At Different Bikes, we know the importance of a perfect bike fit. We provide a range of fit services for every type of rider to help ensure you're enjoying your new bike.
All DB locations provide basic fitting analysis with every new bike. Pre-purchase we always assess frame size to ensure you are choosing the right brand and model for your riding goals. After purchase, as a part of bike delivery, we provide a basic fit to determine saddle placement (height and fore/aft), stem length/rise, lever placement and alignment and neutral cleat alignment for clipless pedals. We strive to provide this service at bike pick-up time, but for best results an appointment is suggested.
Different Bikes can provide in house comprehensive bike fits by appointment. Appointments available in all locations. We recommend a detailed fitting for those planning to spend significant commuting, training or racing hours on their bikes. Road cyclists in particular can benefit from a more detailed fitting analysis to ensure comfort and performance. We'll review position, pedal stroke, alignment and more. Laser and video analysis available soon! Fit sessions are priced at a competitive hourly rate and require an appointment please.
