Traditional bike fitting approaches (tool kits, articles, etc.), are based on formulas and key measurements. Typically these systems fit the rider to the bike. The Trek Precision Fit System is a program that addresses each person on an individual basis taking into account each person’s anatomy, flexibility, range of motion, and riding style thereby fitting the bike to the rider.
The Trek Precision Fit System takes bike fitting a step further by employing body alignment principles learned from biomechanics and flexibility. By assessing imbalances and misalignments in the body we can establish good alignment and determine the range of motion of the body. These two principles are used to diagnose each person’s flexibility level and alignment problems to determine the “best fit” for them on their bike.
As bike fitters it is valuable to understand the biomechanics of the body as well as the physical mechanics of the bicycle. Our bike fitters understand the alignment factors involved in riding a bike and how to accomplish this for each individual through the fitting process. This will be taught, not just as a series of measurements, but also by recognizing good alignment through visual assessment.
A good fit program completes the bike buying experience. Armed with the knowledge of how to properly size a bicycle to a complete body fitting, this program helps to ensure that we can address the full spectrum of a rider’s needs in a confident and professional manner. Proper bike fitting provides the customer more enjoyment and comfort on the bicycle. As bike fitters, our commitment is to address each person with an open mind to determine their personal fit needs.
|Cleat Placement||$49||This is a ½ Hour (approx.) process to properly position your cleat to prevent any soreness or numbness in the feet.|
|Basic Sizing Analysis||$99||The basic sizing analysis is a 1-hour (approx.) analysis including: Saddle height, saddle fore and aft and cockpit set-up. This will give you peace of mind knowing your bicycle is properly set-up for you and prevent against any long-term injuries due to improper positioning.|
|Saddle Pressure Analysis*||$149||This is a 1-hour (approx.) saddle pressure analysis using the Trek Saddle Pressure mapping System. This includes finding your correct width and shape. We will provide up to four saddle options and consultation.|
|Precision Fit (Advanced Cycling Analysis)**||$389||A Precision fit is a 3-4 hour comprehensive analysis including: detailed interview, history and goals, flexibility and core strength assessments, foot mechanics evaluation, 2D analysis, saddle pressure mapping, consult/product recommendations and equipment adjustments.|
* Saddle Pressure Analysis is an in depth process to finding a better fitting saddle. This analysis is not a bicycle fitting or a sizing. The only adjustment that will be made to your bicycle is to keep your current saddle height and distance from saddle tip to handle bar. We highly recommended that if you are looking for serious comfort that you do the advanced cycling analysis.
** Advanced Cycling Analysis can be done to prior to bicycle purchase to find the bicycle that will perfectly fit your needs.
