Expert Bike Fitting

A precision fit makes all the difference not only in your performance but also in how you feel while you’re riding and after you finish a ride. 

We are certified licensed users of the precision Retül bite fit system which uses motion capture technology to assess not just how you sit on your bike, but how you actually ride it.

We look at multiple angles as you’re riding to ensure the fit of your bike is optimal, knowing that even a millimeter can make a huge difference in your performance and in how you feel during and after a ride.

If you’re contemplating buying a new bike, we can help you narrow the range of options based on your biomechanics.

Then, we can fit that new bike (or your existing one) to you perfectly.

The in-person process takes around three hours and includes an interview so our fitters understand your goals and how you plan to use your bike. We factor your size, flexibility, compensations, mobility, and position and movement patterns to optimize how you interface with your bike.

People who we’ve fit bikes for report better performance as well as less pain in their necks, backs, wrists, hips, knees and ankles.

With certifications from SICI and Retul University combined with over 10 years of bike fitting experience we are excited to work with you to achieve your bike fitting goals.

What is Retül

Key Concepts of Retül

Retül tools, technology and methodology are built on three foundations that result in the application of accurate, objective and comprehensive bike fit data to a rider’s position on the bike:

Dynamic fitting is the most realistic

Using motion capture technology, Retül records a rider’s position while he or she is in motion; therefore, creating the most realistic picture of the rider’s actual pedal strokes and body positions when out on the road and trails. Ridinga bike is different than sitting on a bike, and capturing data dynamically presents a clearer and more accurate picture of a rider’s movements.

Biomechanics are best assessed in 3D space

Fit data collected in a traditional two-dimensional plane (such as video) is fairly limited because the fitter has to isolate a single view at a time. In order to see how all of the applicable movements of the body are working together, the frontal and sagittal planes of a rider should be viewed as interdependent reference points. Retül’s motion sensors simultaneously gather data on multiple angles of the rider in three dimensions so a fitter can not only see measurements such as knee and hip angles, but also lateral knee tracking and hip lateral travel.

Measurement accuracy is vital

Slight inaccuracies (the difference of millimeters) can drastically change a rider’s feel after a ride. The Retül system is accurate to within less than a millimeter, creating true objective data which can be utilized by the fitter for the perfect biomechanical fit. Small adjustments can make a big difference in alleviating back, knee or neck pain, and those adjustments will improve a rider’s performance.

Fit Pricing and Policies

RETÜL 3D MOTION CAPTURE BIKE FIT ON EXISTING BIKE: $300

Includes:

  • Biomechanical analysis

  • Cycling-specific flexibility/functional strength assessment

  • Dynamic data capture of 3D full body movements to determine optimal position

  • Real-time recording of power output and physiologic response to help determine optimal position

  • Comprehensive digital reports of 3D and 2D body parameters, 3D bicycle fit coordinates, and bike frame geometry

  • An additional bicycle is priced at $200 when bikes are fit consecutively (for example road and mountain bikes fit back to back).

3D MOTION CAPTURE BIKE FIT FOR NEW BIKE PURCHASE: $350
Includes:

  • Biomechanical analysis

  • Cycling-specific flexibility/functional strength assessment

  • Dynamic data capture of bilateral 3D body movements to determine optimal position

  • Real-time recording of power output and physiologic response to help determine optimal position

  • Comprehensive digital reports of 3D and 2D body parameters, 3D bicycle fit coordinates, and bike frame geometry

  • Accurate and objective recommendation of optimal frame geometry and parts

  • FrameFinder bike compatibility analysis and report for applicable bike lines

  • Follow-up appointment for final bike setup (bike build and bike tuning NOT included)

FRAMEFINDER OR BIKE SELECTION CONSULTATION: $150

  • If riding position is already known (no fit required) a consultation is available to help select a properly fitting new bike, including frame size and part sizes/styles.

  • This will allow the rider to select a properly fitting bike before a purchase is made, and avoid purchasing the wrong bike.

FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENT: $150/HOUR

  • A follow-up appointment is available for clients who have already been through a Retül analysis, and are in need of adjustment.

  • A follow-up appointment is appropriate for a bike that has been fit by Fôrm within one year prior to the follow-up appointment date.

  • A follow-up appointment is appropriate for part changes and recommendations.

  • Note that each fit with Fôrm is guaranteed. If you are experiencing problems with your fit, appointments made within two weeks of original fit appointment will be free of charge.

PAYMENT POLICY

A credit card number is required to book a fit appointment at Fôrm Attainment Studio. No payment is charged at the time of booking. Payment is due at the fit appointment, and an alternative method of payment may be used (other than the credit card used for the booking). For cancelations with 24 hours of the appointment, the credit card on file will be charged $50.
