Bike Fit


Basic Guide for Bike Sizing & Fitting
You need to understand these steps. You may have been set up wrong for years and any change will feel wrong for sometime. Measure up your bike as in, before and after, so you can go back to the way you had it before if you want too.

Nice write-up, Cap, and I would add, that I would leave it to a professional fitter to tweak your bike fit per your current fitness, your riding style. etc. I notice that if I go by pure plumb line measurements, I get a baseline, and when I go to a professional, I get an almost 'perfect fit'. Kung baga, para kang sinukat ng sastre, A professional bike fitter like Mike Boester from Bike Connection Palo Alto, also recommended by BG.

Can't argue with you Manny. Mine is just basic guide. But if you want a professional fit, I can do that also for a fee of $200.00 Guarantee you can beat me on any climb & any sprint, but if you choose Mike Boester to fit you, you can still beat me, but not always. LOL ;-D
