New Bike Fit Menu at Machinery Row Bicycles

A proper bike fit is essential for optimal performance, efficiency, injury prevention, overall comfort on the bike, and will provide a rider with the most economic means of expending energy. A proper bike fit will prevent pain that is common to the knee, hip, and lower back, particularly with riders who are trying to adapt their bodies to the bike they have purchased. From professional athletes to competitive age-groupers to recreational riders to commuters, every cyclist will benefit from a proper bike fit.

We now have the Retul 3D motion capture system to precisely analyze a riders position while pedaling their bicycle on a trainer. All 3 planes of movement are recorded, and is therefore more accurate than any 2D video system, static fitting, sizing chart or eyeball-only fitting. A hard-copy printout and e-mailable format allows us to give the customer an exact set of dimensions and adjustment recommendations for their bicycle, old or new.

Please call Machinery Row Bicycles at 608-442-5974 to schedule a time that works for you. The length of the appointment will be different, depending on to fitting needs of the customer, and if the Retul 3D motion capture system is used.

When arriving for you appointment, you should bring and/or wear the following items: All clothing normally worn for a ride such as padded cycling shorts (your most comfortable are the best choice), riding jersey or top, cycling shoes, gloves, a water bottle and -of course- your bicycle.
