Bike Fitting 

Every rider benefits from a professional bike fit.

Getting your bike professionally fit to your body and your riding needs is not just for racers. You are unique, and your position should reflect that. The Cranky’s Bike Shop fit protocol prioritizes the rider over everything else, which is why we invest the first hour of our fit session in figuring out what makes you... you.

It doesn’t matter if they are a world champion, or a new rider buying their first bike. Everyone gets the same first-class treatment. We then take all of that data, combine it with what we learned during the physical assessment, and create your individualized position. 

Helping riders get the most out of their cycling experience is our top priority, this is why we believe in the “Fit First” philosophy.

Precision Fit Examples

   





Precision Fit Process

Interview

This is where we get to know you. The interview process allows us to understand the type of rider you are, this along with your fitness and riding goals will influence the way your bike will be fit to you, taking into consideration previous pain on the bike and any other related injuries.

Off-Bike Assessment

The physical assessment allows us to see your strength, flexibility level as well as your body dimensions. These measurements allow us to see what type of positioning is best for your body.

On-Bike Assessment

We can use our fit bike to recreate any road bicycle from any brand. We will then take the information obtained from your physical assessment and adjust the fit machine to the most comfortable and efficiency position for you. Once completed, we will extract the coordinates from the fit machine to modify your current or future bike.

Your fit backed by Technology

Fit Bike

The Precision Fit Bike allows you to try different set ups within minutes. We can have you try different stem lengths/rises, different crank lengths, different bar widths, and different seat heights and angles. Using our database, we are able re-create essentially any bike and make adjustments as necessary. This is an excellent opportunity to try different sizes and chose which one feels best before buying a bike.

Motion Capture

The Motion Capture technology allows your fit expert to explain, graphically, the fit process to you step by step. The system films you while you are riding the fit bike and allows us to show you trends and improvements that can be made to your riding position.

Saddle pressure analysis

Saddle Pressure Analysis

The Pressure Analysis Technology allows both you and your fit expert to see your saddle data in real time. This analysis shows different pressure points and your movement in the saddle when you are in motion.  From this data, we can determine how stable you are on your saddle and optimizes your pedaling dynamics.
