What size bike do you ride? A 54cm? A medium? How do you know? Many cyclists buy new bikes simply based off the size of their last bike. Can you really “stand over” a bike and tell if it fits?

You may be surprised to know that often two bikes that claim the same size will actually fit very differently underneath a rider due to the actual geometry of the bike. Welcome to the GPP Cycling™ Performance Bike Fit Institute℠ where we like to flip things around. Instead of buying a bike and then doing a bike fit, how about doing the bike fit first to ensure you are spending your money on the correct bike? To do that, we utilize the F.I.S.T. performance fitting methodology on The GURU Fit System™ advanced dynamic fit bike to ensure we, together, find the right balance of comfort and power to ensure the most productive ride. Dynamic means you are riding the fit bike while we make the changes allowing you to instantly feel the benefits of a change. Seat height, bottom bracket offset, cockpit – all of these are carefully selected to find both comfort and power in your final riding position.  We also utilize the Retul Muve™ and Precision Fit Bike™ dynamic fit bikes for specialty and/or entry fits in the Rogers and Fayetteville Shops.

We also use BikeFit® methodology to align your biomechanical chain from your feet up through your knees and hips to give you a more stable pedaling platform with additional power. Ensuring you are biomechanically aligned also reduces the risk of injury and helps ensure you are riding on into your twilight years without issues derived from thousands and thousands of pedaling revolutions on a misaligned setup. Once the fit is complete, we use your fit coordinates (Stack and Reach) to help you select a bike that will truly fit underneath you in the way you selected during the fitting session. Buy with confidence and ride with comfort and power by getting fit first!

Be the Bike...Ride Fast℠

GOLD Fit

$225 (Free with bike purchase of $3000 or more before tax)**

The Gold fit is where you get “dialed in”. Simply put, if you are in the correct optimal position, you will be BOTH comfortable AND powerful! To be fast and effective, you MUST be able to sustain your position for the duration of the event. Most people don’t realize that in performance cycling, comfort is a large driver in the fitting process.  This fit finds your personal, optimal geometry and position for the most comfort and power.    The goal is to shed minutes off your time in competition with the most comfort.  When considering a bike to purchase, this fit can (and SHOULD) be used to find the optimal bike that fits you as well as fits your needs.  For those with existing bikes, we can retro-fit your current bike to your new position as closely as possible to ensure you are getting everything out of your current steed.
