Bike Fitting Packages
Wheel Werks prides itself on its fitting services.
We have pursued education and experience in this field for 30 years and are confident we can improve your cycling experience, whether that means improved comfort, increased power, or both.
Any rider who spends considerable time on their bicycle over the course of the year will benefit from one of our signature fitting services.
Advanced Fit for Road and Mountain Bike $240
We begin with medical and cycling history, and then perform a hands-off physical assessment.
Next we fit your existing bike, starting from the shoe/ foot/ cleat interface and working up. We set your lower body over pedals for optimum power, comfort, and range of motion, before moving to the upper body angles, specifically reviewing proper reach, back angle and hand/handlebar interface.
After our session, you will receive a full report of the fit via email, with your personal fit angles and set up.
Advanced Fit for Tri Bike $260
Same as road fit but with extra time added to set up aero bars. An extra charge for time to adjust integrated handlebar systems may apply.
Retul Fit for Road and Mountain Bikes $340
We start with all the services included in the Advanced Fit, but employ additional input from our Retul 3D motion capture system.
The Retul system gives us realtime feed back as we make adjustments, which is particularly beneficial when addressing chronic fit/comfort issues and for optimizing the foot/pedal interface.
System cameras monitor movements on both sides of your body simultaneously. This allows us to detect tightness in the body, asymmetries, and pedal stroke inequities arising from limb length difference. Observations of knee and hip movement allow us to pick the best saddle and to fine tune foot/cleat set up.
Wheel Werks was among the first three fitters certified by Retul in 2009.
Retul Fit for Tri Bike $350
All the Retul Road Fit services plus time for aero bar placement. An extra charge for time to adjust integrated handlebar systems may apply.
Pre-Purchase Bike Fit- Any Style $225
For riders who want to dial in their optimal fit before identifying a new bike or beginning a custom bike project.
We start with a fully adjustable fit bike that measures crank arm length, stem angle and length, rise from headset, handlebar width and correct saddle. We apply one side of our Retul 3D motion harness to confirm angles. With this process we are not concerned with what size frame you should select, but rather how your body’s unique lengths, angles and flexibility want from a new bike.
Once we fully understand you as a cyclist, then we can over lay your fit onto one of the models we sell or have a frame built to your individual specifications. We only overlay and recommend frames we sell. If you choose to buy from another source, the Fit First approach give you an invaluable start, a map to your body, on a bike, in its best possible position.
Additional Information and Services
Some portion of the cost of the Fit First service can be applied to the purchase of a new bike from Wheel Werks within 30 days of the fitting. New bikes retailing between $2500-$6000 receive a $100 credit. Bikes in excess of $6001 retail receive the full $225 credit.
If you have had a bicycle fit with Wheel Werks in the previous 12 months you qualify for the services below.
Cleat Fit for new shoes and cleats $75 ( we stock cleats)
Saddle fit with demo saddles $75
- We do recommend beginning with an Advanced Fit, as this will allow us to see if your current saddle can work with proper adjustment. Saddle fit, we find, begins with proper alignment of the whole body.
Wheel Werks stocks all fitting items
We stock stems, bars, cleats, tape, pedals aerobars and much more.
Wheel Werks is a full service shop and can upgrade your existing bike to your needs. Contact us before your fit to discuss.
