Bike Fitting

Man has cycled for over a hundred years. At first, the bicycle was seen only as a practical and cheap means of transport, but over the last few decades, bicycles have also become popular as a means for participating in sports and/or recreational activities.

In addition to all kinds of technical requirements which the modern bicycle must comply with, such as reduced weight, many gears, precise steering etc., the size and geometry are critical. Not only frame size is important: proper adjustment of the handlebars and saddle is also crucial. Proper bicycle size and positioning prevent problems from arising and largely determine the cyclist’s comfort and performance level.

Bicycle professionals and sports coaches work with sophisticated measuring systems such as Retul 3-Dimensional motion capture fitting to realize optimum bicycle adjustment and positioning.
