Bicycle Fitting

    Proper bike fit is essential for comfortable, efficient riding. The Fit Kit is a collection of precision tools and data that allow us to efficiently, discreetly and precisely measure you to determine your exact frame size (seat-tube length and angle, and top-tube length) and the proper adjustments for the points where you contact your bicycle.

Fitting requires special tools and experience

Ride more comfortably, with less effort and just plain faster!
If this sounds complicated, it is! However, this process will make a world of difference in your enjoyment of cycling.  Fit is the key to riding efficiently on any new frame or bicycle and is HUGELY important, whether you ride for recreation, fitness or fun, or on the road or dirt.

If you're uncomfortable on your bike, suffering from numb hands, a sore rear end, a stiff neck, aching wrists or back, it's very likely that a poor bicycle fit is contributing to the problems if not causing them. cycles de ORO's trained technicians can help.

We also recommend getting fitted if you're shopping for a new bicycle and aren't sure what size is right or if you're buying a frame to build into your dream bike. Once we've measured you, you'll know the proper size, which will make it a lot easier to pick out the right bike or frame. Equally important, it will allow ruling out those models that don't fall within your fit requirements, which is a great help if you're comparing many different brands.

Fitting Sessions
We offer in-store Fit Kit fitting services to accommodate your needs. Contact us first for an appointment and plan on spending from 30 minutes for a size analysis to 2 hours for a complete Fit session. Our trained Fit technicians will take your measurements and discuss your cycling goals, problems and issues.

If you're here to get measured for a new bicycle, don't forget to bring along your cycling clothes (shoes, too). You can change in our dressing room. By wearing cycling clothes, the measurements will be accurate (seams in street clothing can interfere with precise measurements)

If you're interested in being fit to your current bicycle, please bring your bike and your cycling clothes as above. We'll measure your bicycle and its  components and you on it, observing your position and current setup.

Then we will fine-tune your bike for a perfect fit. We'll also make recommendations if you require different components, such as stem length, angle and height, and install these if you wish (components are sold separately). We're sure you'll be delighted at how much more comfortable you are on your bike.

Bike Size Analysis

is a professional prescription for the correct size bicycle.  This requires some key measurements, including foot size, inseam, torso and arm length, along with questions that help determine fit considerations. This information uses our Fit Kit data and will allow us to provide our recommendation for the best choice within stock bike models or a custom bike sizing.


Dynamic Performance Analysis  & Fitting

allows you to get the most out of your bike (new or used).  This process requires many more measurements and time investment with our technicians to make your bike provide the absolute best propulsion possible. As part of this analytic process, a myriad of dimensions entered into our Fit System software as you are positioned on your bike in our fit center.

Saddles, seat posts, handlebars and stems may be changed to optimize your position.*

You and your bike are placed on a Kinetic trainer and our Fit Kit master techs will analyze and fine tune all adjustments, checking body alignment, pedaling action and discussing comfort levels as you ride.  Our goal is to perfect your cycling stroke and maximize your comfort, efficiency and power output.

 Parts often need changing to achieve optimum fit, and in those cases, labor and parts are an additional cost.
