The Bike Lane offers different levels of bike fitting in our stores. Our fitters are trained at helping align riders to new or existing bicycles to insure their comfort and efficiency. Every bike purchased from The Bike Lane is sized to each customer based on the customers feedback and our reccommendations. We also offer more specific bike fittings which include professional fittings. Please see descriptions and pricing below.
A proper bike fit is essential for injury prevention and maximized efficiency. An optimal position on the bike will allow for greater comfort and enjoyment while riding. All bodies are different and your position on the bike should reflect your biomechanics.
Generally, if you are serious enough to clip into a bike, you will benefit from a bike fit. Whether you are a professional or recreational rider, getting the proper bike fit is an effective yet economical way to improve performance.
Most appointments are made during the week to ensure that we are able to focus on the customer during less busy store hours. Please bring your cycling shorts and shoes. Fittings can be one to two hours depending on which service the customer chooses.
