Fit

Assume the position with efficiency and comfort. 


The purpose of fitting a bike to a client is to:

1. Find the right frame

2. Determine seat and handlebar position, i.e. fine tuning

3. Identify other fit issues

  • Saddle width and shape
  • Clipless pedal cleat orientation
  • Cleat risers for differential leg extension
  • Handlebar reach and shape
  • Address any loss of efficiency or discomfort resourcefully

Many of us at Fat Tire can custom fit your bike to you, but one of us provides a professional certified fit for custom builds and racing. Erik Faria has 15 years experience with various fitting systems. He has studied sports nutrition and physiology at Sacramento State and UNM. He's also just a really nice and helpful person who knows a lot about the products you can choose from to make your cycling experience the best.
