More Comfort, More Power, Fewer Injuries: this is our promise delivered with each 3D Body Geometry Bike Fit. Our BG Fit Technicians are trained directly by Specialized to be experts in this fit technique because it is the best.
Developed by Dr. Andy Pruitt from the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine, this fit includes a full physical assessment to measure and record each rider’s body structure, range of motion strengths & limits, and unique needs. Riding experience, past injuries, and future goals are discussed before beginning the BG Fit process. The fit is performed while the cyclist pedals at 60% effort on a trainer, and addresses the side view (XY Plane) plus the front view (Z-Plane). The Z-Plane assessment is a crucial part of fully analyzing and correcting the knees and hips, and pedal stroke, frequent troublemakers when it comes to nagging pain on the bike.
Most alternative fit techniques are static, only taking a few basic measurements (such as inseam, torso, arm length, etc.)and adjusts the rider only on the XY plane (viewing the rider from the side of the bike). By comparison, our BG Bike Fit is undeniably more comprehensive and examines your body’s dynamic interaction with your bike while pedaling. Our goal is to make the BIKE FIT THE RIDER, maximizing biomechanics for optimal comfort, ease, efficiency, and power. If you’re ready to eliminate pain and shave a few seconds (or minutes) off your next ride, call to schedule an appointment guaranteed to change your riding experience!
Our 3D fits are available for Road and Triathlon bicycles. Most riders find items need be replaced during a fit, such as saddles, shoes, foot beds, handlebars, etc. Our 3D bicycle fits typically take approx 1.5-3.5 hours and we recommend occasional follow-up visits to review your positioning. Please make sure to bring EVERYTHING you would need for a typical ride. This may include:
Cycling Gloves if you wear them
Cycling Shoes, pedals, and socks
