Proper bike fit is essential for comfortable and efficient riding. cycles de ORO's Fit process uses a collection of precision tools and data, combined with the famous "Oracle of Delphi" process, 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.
Multiple tools are used to achieve great Fit; the classic time-proven FIT KIT and the modern and comprehensive Body Geometry system by SPECIALIZED. In the final analysis, it is the life experience and intuitive capabilities of the Body Geometry Fit technician that make the difference. Too many "short timers" or relatively inexperienced bike shop personnel or coaches use elaborate "smoke and mirrors" to try to short cut this process. Be smart and trust experience. Look at our customer feedback to see positive reports.
Ride faster, more comfortably and with less effort!
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

road or dirt.
We also recommend being analyzed if you're shopping for a new bicycle and aren't sure what size is right. or if you're buying a frame set 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.
