Gone are the days when a bike fit meant hopping on the bike and eyeballing your saddle height. You're a serious rider. It's time for a proper bike fitting.
A Fort Worth Cycling and Fitness we have the latest Trek Precision Fit system so you get the perfect bike fit. Trek's Precision Fit System ensures that you're in the optimal position for power, handling, speed, and comfort. Your cost for a Trek Precision Fit is only $100. Add the Saddle Pressure Mapping (see below) for only $50 more. Our Trek Precision Fit can be performed on road bikes, triathlon bikes, time trial bikes, and mountain bikes.
Step 1) The fit process is completed by one of our trained pros who start with an in-depth interview with you, the rider. We learn your goals and needs as a cyclist to establish a baseline for our fit session.
Step 2) As perhaps the most crucial point of contact between you and your bike, your shoes are the focus of the next step. Your technician helps you choose the best shoes for you, as well as proper cleat placement so your power is transferred to the pedals as efficiently as possible.
Step 3) Now it's time to get on the bike. Your technician will start with an assessment of your current riding position to identify potential issues, strengths, and areas for improvement.
Step 4) Working from your lower body upward, your technician will help you select a saddle that's comfortable for you. Small, incremental adjustments follow to ensure your legs are taking advantage of the best pedal stroke for your riding style and needs. Body position, biomechanics, and comfort all come into play here, and your technician is trained to pay close attention to them all.
Step 6) The upper body adjustment comes next. Your technician adjusts your stem height, reach, handlebar shape, handlebar width, and more to optimize your posture, bike handling, and power.
Nothing brings down a great ride like an uncomfortable saddle. Choosing the right saddle straight off the shelves is nearly impossible since every body is different and every saddle has a shape tailored to different riders. So how do you know which one's right for you?
At Fort Worth Cycling & Fitness, we ensure you get the right saddle for your body type and riding style by using Trek's Saddle Pressure Mapping. This advanced process allows us to identify hotspots and zones that may cause discomfort for you while you're riding. Based on the pressure map we produce for you, we can help you identify a saddle that's right for you. We account for saddle width, length, shape, curvature, and more to help ensure you ride away comfortable and focused on the road or trail ahead. This service is only $50.
Our in-store fit area is loaded with the right equipment to get you in a perfect position. Our fit techs spend one-on-one time with you right in the store to ensure you're heading out onto the blacktop or the trails in the most comfortable, powerful, and stable riding position possible.
