Bike Cycles Precision Fit 2.5–3 Hours - $250
Buying a new bike is a major commitment and one most of us will live with for 5-10 years. Fortunately for buyers, there are more great bikes available from a whole host of manufacturers than ever before. Unfortunately for buyers, the surplus of good options can result in otherwise rational people choosing their new bike in one of two irrational ways: an over-reliance on the subjective opinions of “expert reviewers” or an equally subjective parking lot test rides aboard poorly fitting bikes.
We recognize that buying a new bike is a highly personal experience for most riders. Why then shouldn’t the buying experience be personalized? Though we happen to carry some of the industry’s most highly coveted bike brands, we also acknowledge that in the 21st century it’s become difficult to buy a bad bike. The worst thing one can do is buy the wrong bike for their needs. The Bike Cycles Fitting takes the guess work out of helping you find your new bike by combining the objective and data driven protocol of our precision fitting with a personalized buying experience that will end with you test riding and choosing between well-fitting bikes that match your riding style, bio-mechanical needs, and budget.
