We'd like to share with your our philosophy as service providers, as bike fitting theory to find your fit and as bike fitting process execution that must be followed to achieve your success.


ʻYou don't need to be a Pro to get a bike fit. Everyone who climbs into a bike deserves to have a great experience, regardless of their fitness, expertise or equipment level.ʼ - Steffi. Senior Fitter, Owner of A Perfect Bike Fit Pro Studio



It's our core belief that everyone who enjoys cycling should have access to proper fitting. You no longer need to be a Pro to have access to the most advanced bike fit services.

Today, many riders log as many miles as the Pros do. A 40 mile ride is just a quick ride. While advancement in nutrition and post-ride care have long become an integral part of the everyday cyclist, access to proper bike fitting has been lagging.

Many riders have come to accept a substandard relationship with their bike. Some even have come to accept that pain and discomfort are an inherent part of the cycling experience.  But that's not true.

This is the sport we love so much. We should go as fast as we can; as often as we can.

Cycling should be the pinnacle of enjoyment in our ability to push ourselves and the bike to the limit - and not discomfort, pain or even injuries.

We want to bring access to world-class bike fitting to everyone who rides. It doesn't matter if you ride just a few miles or you are training for an IronMan. Whether you are seeking the best performance of your life or getting the rid of those pesky recurrent issues, bike fitting is what you need to harmonize yourself with your bike. And it should be available to you.

So, we designed a program that unlocks everyone's potential by fitting everyone's needs and pockets.

But it's not just our belief as a fit service provider, but also as bike fitter that sets us apart. How we believe bike fitting should be done is just as important as why we do what we do.



Bike fitting is a range - not an ideal position. Thanks to years of study and tools like Retül and Computrainer, we know the human range of bio-mechanical optimization. This range is fairly narrow, but sufficiently wide to allow for individual considerations - with dramatic results.

Each individual has his/her own personal window within the human range. This depends on many key points: flexibility, joint range of motion, strength, balance, posture, gait, foot configuration, injuries and other muscle-skeletal issues. This information is obtained during the pre-fit analysis.

There must be considerations for your unique pedaling style also. Spinners interface with the bike much differently than mashers. There are key parameters in the fit that play into the pedaling style and support it - maximizing your efficiency.

This is why the pre-fit analysis is so important and we spend considerable amount of time doing it. How else would a fitter know what's appropriate for you - and what to avoid?

Additionally, each application has its own window within the human range: road is different than mountain or triathlon. Certainly, the riding position of a weekend rider must different from that of an amateur racer or PRO. It's very important to make this distinction. There is no such a thing as the sweet spot. One size doesn't fit all.



With all the above considerations in mind:

where the Human, Person Pre-Fit, Pedal ID and Application ranges intersect, we believe that it is your personalized fit range.                               

This may seems rather straightforward, but this part of the bike fit process is often overlooked or skipped altogether by many fitters.

It's often at the center of the debate of between us modern, educated Retül fitters and the old-school fitters who hang on desperately to the idea of the sweet spot because of their obsolete tools and knowledge. It's important of letting go of that obsolete knowledge and step into the modern era of bike fitting.



The fitting process is just as important as the theory behind the fitting technology. The process is the actual application of the principles of bike fitting. You may have all the best knowledge and tools in the world, but if you don't apply them correctly and execute consistently, the results will leave to desire. Only the correct execution can achieve the correct results.



Read about:

the steps involved in our bike fitting process.

The pre-fit analysis provides us with all the relevant information of you as athlete and human being. Your history is crucial, as it leads to who you are today in terms of health, range of motion, flexibility, injuries and any limitations or special assets to drive your fit.

Once we have the necessary information from the pre-fit knowledge, we can begin the process of the Retül 3D motion capture to test your current fit on the bicycle. Before doing any changes to your position, we need to see your current interaction with the equipment. This helps determining the factors that are holding you back in your performance or that are causing you pain/injuries and/or discomfort.

In particular, for athletes seeking a bike fit for remediating injuries and discomfort, this is a very important step in breaking down the  elements of the fit and coming to the source of the problem.

How you do a Retül data capture is also very important. A meaningful data capture must be done at a specific level of intensity. It is our position that a data capture done at medium to low intensity efforts is a non-valid data capture. Everyone pedals pretty when they are comfortable. There is no knowledge to be gained from this. We need to put the rider outside the area of comfort to see all the good and bad habits that may have developed over time. Then, we can build upon the good habits and remedy the factors causing the bad ones. 

To do that, it's necessary to have the right equipment, simulating the correct load - a regular home trainer, no matter of fancy, it's not up to the job. That's why we employ Racermate Computrainer. Computrainer has been at the leading edge of power testing and pedaling mechanics analytics technology for decades and it's still the reference tool for everyone in the industry. This state-of-the art trainer allows us to simulate very realistic loads, as close to real-life as we get. The specific loads at which we work with our customers are very individual and a bit of a trade secret.

The Computrainer also aids us in doing the pedal ID and power analysis. By breaking down the pedal stroke in 15 deg increments throughout the revolution, each individual's pedaling style and technique can be identified. This is vital in determining certain key parameters for your fit.


Multiple Retül data captures must be done to keep honing into the right position.


Each Retül data capture yields an incremental step towards your final position.

This step-by-step process allows to focus on individual key areas and address specific issues while aware of the relationships with other key parameters of your fit.

And that's the challenge that often eludes the do-it-yourselfers and even many fitters: how addressing one bike fitting parameter affects all the others. Move one thing on your bike and everything else seems to go out of position.

The cascading effects of each key bike fitting parameter is the most challenging part of a fitter's book of knowledge.

For Pro-level fit, Fit For Injuries fit and Fit For Weight Management Fit we test various positions within your personal fit range, until we arrive at the best combination of comfort and power, while protecting you from potential injuries, or helping you recover from them.

The sheer amount of data (8 sensors transmitting 16 data points per second) and accuracy (1mm) of the Retül 3D fitting technology empowers us to engage you and your bicycle in a dialog that leads to harmony.

Additional to this, there are a few trade secrets that we accumulated from our own research and experimentations over the years.

  • We learned how to make your core part of the pedaling stroke, increasing significantly your efficiency.

  • We learned how to de-activate key muscle groups for Tri-athletes to save for running and for endurance riders to go the distance.

  • We learned how to place your cleats so your feet won't hurt and will transfer max power to the pedals.

  • And we learned how to help out with the many typical pains associated with cycling (hands, back, feet, etc.).

The knowledge of the fitter remains the key asset of a bicycle fitting service provider. Technology means nothing without an expert operator, but the right technology is everything in the hands of a skilled bike fitter.

We made it a point of learning in-depth our tools of the trade (and even inventing them when needed) so that we can provide the best service possible.

We look forward to sharing that knowledge with you in our fitting studio and helping you become the best you can be with your bike.
