Bike Fit is a marriage of bicycle to rider. While the human body does an incredible job of adapting, it is our job as fitters to adjust the bicycle to the rider and not the rider to the bicycle. A rider should not be stretched or contorted to achieve the “ideal” or “Pro” position. Rather, the bicycle should be an extension of the rider and reflect his or her riding style and or goals.

Dynamic bike fit is better than static bike fit. Fit while pedaling under load must be considered when fine tuning saddle height and cleat positioning. Static formulas for deciding height do not take into account a rider’s natural ankling pattern or exact saddle position under load. As said before, “we must make the bike fit the rider”, and not attempt to place the rider in a prescribed “ideal” or “Pro” position.


Cycling is a sport of repetition. A cadence of 90 revolutions per minute is roughly 5000 revolutions per hour. A six hour century would require 30,000 pedal revolutions. Obviously the positioning on the bike must be as perfect as possible to prevent repetitive use injuries, and this is why a precision fit is a must for even casual cyclists. We have several different fit levels available.

We approach each fit with expanded experience based off the BG FIT system developed by Dr. Andy Pruitt and the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine in 2 levels for Road and Mountain bikes and 1 level for Triathlon / Time Trial fitting. This system of bicycle fit has proven to work extremely well for us here at New England Bike & Scuba and has a proven track record for completing the marriage of rider to bicycle.

Although many of the same services of the BG process are replicated here, there are some subtle differences in the overall process that are fine-tuned to the unique positioning of a Time Trial or Triathlon bike that will be based on the riders flexibility, limitations, event goals and experience.
