RETUL BIKE FIT
Cost - $300
Leave no stone unturned with this comprehensive, dynamic fit.
A bike fit using Retül technology typically includes the following steps:
The fitter conducts an initial physical assessment of the rider, and at this point can address the rider's concerns about performance, pain, or any other issues the rider hopes to alleviate during the bike fit.
LED markers are strategically placed on eight anatomical points of the rider: the wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, heel, and toe.
As the rider pedals, Retül's sensor bar gathers real-time, three-dimensional data of the rider's pedal strokes and movements.
Retül's rotating platform allows the fitter to collect data for both sides of the rider without the rider leaving the bike.
The rider's data is compiled into a reader-friendly report for analysis by the fitter. The fitter can then assess the rider's position and make necessary adjustments.
The Zin, Retül's handheld digitizer, allows the fitter to digitally measure the rider's bike at 13-15 points, depending on the bike. The Zin can measure fixed points, contours, and curves, and provides a complete digital map of the bike.
The fit information is saved and stored on the fitter's computer.
The data includes the rider's personal profile, measurements from the fit, bike measurements, and the rider's final fit position.
The fitter will be able to access and print these records for comparison and tracking of historical fit data for the client.

Body Geometry Fit enables riders to maximize power, endurance, and comfort. During your personal Body Geometry Fit session, a trained specialist will assess your individual needs and systematically tailor your bike position and equipment to your body.
A Body Geometry Fit Specialist will learn about how you ride, your cycling goals, and other pertinent information to understand your needs as a rider.
Your Fit Specialist will administer a comprehensive pre-fit assessment process to determine the flexibility and dimensions of your body. This is critical to guide the customization of your bike position and equipment.
Your Fit Specialist will visually assess your position on the bike while you ride. This provides additional information to optimize your position and equipment.
During this 15-step process, the Fit Specialist will personalize your bike position and equipment choice. In the end, saddle selection and position, shoes, footbeds, cleat position, and handlebar position are all optimized to your body.
At the conclusion of the process, the Fit Specialist will schedule a follow-up to review your adaptation to the new position, answer your questions, and provide guidance on how to get the most out of your ride.
"...The fit you did for me was awesome. I did quite a few century + rides on that bike with no pain at all, and I can't tell you how many times I said "Thank You Brady!" to myself while I was out riding it." - Dan J.
"In Nov, my wife was in for a custom fit with you. It transformed her riding and her relationship with the bike. She thinks you are a genius." - John K.
"Glad to tell you bike fits like a glove. Totally comfortable. Much more on the road than when I was in the store. ISM saddle is incredibly comfortable. Rode conservatively right at FTP for most of the intervals just to get a feel for the bike, but let it out the last 5M of each interval I let it out a little and added 10% and it felt great. Had more in the tank too. Handling on fast twisty descents is great. After an hour felt totally confident on bike....the fit is spot on. Neck and shoulders felt relaxed and hips were moving free and easy. No soreness in legs/knees afterwards either. Absolutely love the bike. It feels real slippery. Can't wait until I have the aero wheels, a skin suit and aero helmet. It is going to be a fun TT season." - Rich B.
