What is BikeFit®?

  • BikeFit® is a system designed to ensure that a cyclist’s body dimensions and mechanics are matched/fitted to that of their bike to achieve maximum comfort and cycling efficiency

Why Choose Us?

  • You’ll be fitted to your own bike that you bring into the clinic! – we’ll do everything for you vs providing you with a list of adjustments to figure out on your own at home
  • Fittings are performed by Evan Thomas, our BikeFit® Canada Certified Physiotherapist, which means you can also use your health benefits plan (e.g. Blue Cross, Manulife, Sunlife, etc)

What’s Involved/Included?

  • A short interview to gather information about a rider’s health, cycling history, currently cycling volume, and cycling goals
  • Visual and/or video analysis to get a sense of the rider’s current cycling posture and position
  • Joint angle measurements at the elbow, shoulder, hip, and knee to direct what changes need to be made
  • Adjustments to the saddle height and fore/aft/tilt, stem length, handlebar drop/rotation, and hood position (as required)
  • A side/lateral view pedal stroke evaluation and measurement to determine if fore/aft cleat adjustments are needed
  • A frontal view pedal stroke evaluation and observation of knee, hip, and ankle motion to determine if medial/lateral and/or rotational cleat adjustments are required – wedges and pedal spacers may be added
  • Bike measurements are completed at the end so you have a spec sheet which you can refer to if needed at a later time

What Types of Bikes do we Fit?

  • Road
  • Gravel
  • Triathlon/Time Trial
  • Cyclocross
  • Mountain
  • Hybrid/Commuter
  • E-Bikes (except for those with the power cable entering the rear hub trough the axle, sorry!)

Who’s it For?

  • BikeFit® is suitable for all ages and abilities 😃 – from weekend warriors and commuters to racers and superhero cyclists!
