|We are the only independent
and dedicated bike fitting center in South Florida.
All we do is bike fitting, sizing and
custom geometry design. We don't sell bikes, components
(unless specifically needed for fitting), nutrition or
anything else. We are not attached to a bike shop - but
we collaborate with and support our local shops and
engaged the best of them into a program to extend special discount pricing to
We find that to be important, so that the fitting
process is never tainted by sales.
We are a Retül certified
bike fitting center specialized in advanced fitting.
We handle bike fitting needs that range from the
entry-level cyclist to the most advanced issues with
comfort, pain and injuries. We are often sought to
resolve the issues that the bike fitting at the bike
shops cannot address.
We mostly work with everyday
cyclists. We are also sought after the very Elite Pros -
many of whom compete in the UCI Worlds and Triathlon
Worlds theater - because we offer an unparalleled level
of technology and knowledge.
We are a technology-rich bike fitting center. We
recognize that the proper tools and an experienced
operator are the right combination for success.

We also engineered our sizing bicycle to an unprecedented
level of custom adjustability and developed a ground-breaking
software around it, so we can offer the new generation of custom
geometry design. We wanted to bring the process of custom
bicycle design into the modern era of motion technology.
Traditionally, the old-school custom geometry methodology has
used your static limb measurements (like length of limbs, torso,
etc.) to determine your size/geometry. We saw the potential of
3D motion capture afforded by the Retül technology and build a
system around it, so we'd be able to design a bike that fits you
based on how you move, how you interact with it.
See here this impressive process.
The results? Ground breaking.
We developed this technology to extract the maximum performance
out of the Retül 3D motion capture system. And, as far as we
know, we are the only ones in the world doing this.

of its certified, Independently Owned Retül fitting
Retül is not a franchise.
It's a bike fitting technology that was previously only
available to the Pro circuit and became commercially
available in 2006. In 2012 Retül was purchased by
Specialized so it could be offered it as its next,
most advanced step in bike fitting beyond their
well-known Body Geometry bike fitting technology.
Bike fitting centers that operate
Retül technology are independently owned by
operators. This means, that each bike fitting
center has its own take on what the fit should be, how
long should it take, how much additional technology it
uses and how much it costs.
Variety is good when it comes to
services, but not when it comes to operating the most
sophisticated bike fitting technology. There are
stringent Retül operating standards.

How serious is this accreditation and
In 2014 there were 267 certified Retül centers in the
US. Retül went through a thorough audit process of all
its operators in 2015 upping the quality requirements. As of August 2015 there were only 91 that made the
cut for recertification for 2015, including us. It has
stayed that way since.

Only the fitting centers with the
highest verifiable quality of work can be re-accredited.
This way, you know that we, as

into your bike. This keeps the process pure and prevents the
fitting from being tainted by sales considerations. You are even
welcome to bring your own bike parts that may be needed for bike
fitting (like a stem or a seatpost or a saddle). We will direct
you to a bike shop to purchase any pre-fit supplies, if needed.
We can connect you with a shop and/or
manufacturer if needed - and extend our discounts we have with
participating bike shops. We are always happy to help. But we
won't be selling you a bike, even when we coordinate the custom

Every athlete is unique
in his/her situation.
Using this unique ensemble of
leading edge technology, deployed in the true and tried
environment of biomechanics, we fit cyclists within their
own personal fit range.
Bike fitting is a range
- not an ideal position.
There is no "sweet spot", the
mythical ideal position. This is an outdated concept. Run
away if anyone tries to sell it to you.
Don't believe in the sweet spot. Believe in the fit range.
The fit range allows for individual
considerations and is the convergence of many factors:
- Your own personal fit
window within the human range resulting from pre-fit analysis:
- Flexibility, joint range of motion, limitations
due to injuries, gait, foot configuration, strength
in key muscle groups, limitations of any kind, etc.
- Your own unique pedaling style:
- Spin or mash
- Toe down or heel down
- Each application also has its own window
within the human range:
- Ultra endurance
- Time Trial
- Sprint and Olympic
- Ironman and half Ironman
- Cross Country
- All Mountain
Where the parameters of the window ranges
intersect, we find your personal fit range.
THE FIT RANGE:
This may sound really straightforward, but
most fitting organizations and individual fitters struggle with
this notion; they hang on to the idea of the sweet spot because
it's easy to sell.
Would you fit a 60 years old cycling enthusiast the same as you
would a 21 years old skinny Pro? Clearly, the answer is no.
And so, there isn't a sweet spot, but a personal fit range.

Our senior fitter also holds a
BS in Aerospace Engineering, specialized in
aerodynamics. This is very helpful in many occasions,
especially when working with all the Triathlon and Time
Trial aero enthusiasts looking to go faster.
The wind-tunnel experience comes
handy when setting up Triathlon and Time Trial positions
that truly reduce your drag.
Aerodynamics are tricky. Most fitters
use the feeling of wind resistance on their own body as
accumulated experience for drag. This is all well and
good to play around, but experiential methodologies fail
to the scrutiny of the wind tunnel.
Air interacts with a rider in
complex ways. Only when you are trained in aerodynamics
you can truly understand the complexities of fluid
dynamics. The success depends on the details of
flow management and boundary layer separation - not how
low-down you slam the rider.
Especially at low speeds, like those
involved in human-powered motion, the management of the
flow is the key to reducing the drag - not how small you
make your front section.
This is not something you can feel on your skin while
going downhill. It's something you need to spend years
studying and manipulating in the wind tunnel. We have
done it and now it's available to you.
Our senior fitter has
an incredible talent and breath of knowledge, with an
uncanny ability to understand each individual situation.

possible. We call it affectionately the fit rig.

It's a rig built with flexibility
of application in mind. It can easily switch to
hold road, aero or mountain bikes.

also developed our sizing bicycle to offer the
ideal pre-sale testing grounds upon which
a customer can rely to make the most informed decision
in his/her bicycle purchase.
Buying a new bike can be a daunting
task, even for the most experienced cyclists. What is
the right size in a specific brand? What is
geometry given a body type, or a specific use?
We wanted to provide an educated
answer to those questions. So we developed the sizing
bike to emulate any bike geometry, any size.
This is where our
knowledge of bike fitting, design and geometry
optimization came together to create a unique piece of
We looked for available commercial bike sizing technology
products and we saw a huge gap in a
specific area that's critical to the process of
accurately sizing a person for a new bicycle. We noticed
that none of the currently available systems would
emulate the head angle. These systems are adjustable only in two
dimensions, when 3 are needed.
We designed our
sizing bike to move in 3 Dimensions and emulate both
seat tube angles and head tube angles. This is critical.
Capable of emulating road, mountain, tri, track bicycle
geometries and more, our design is so capable, it
actually allows us to literally design bicycle
underneath you that moves the way you do.
We saw an untapped potential in the Retül 3D motion
capture system and so we developed the Dream Bike
proprietary software to complement the capabilities of
your sizing bike hardware and, in the process, made a huge
breakthrough in bicycle design:
dynamic motion capture geometry design. This is
cutting edge, revolutionary and puts us in a very unique
