Bike Fits during COVID-19 

After six long months we are resuming bike fits! Currently all bike fits will be conducted outside behind our Manayunk store under a tent with fans to keep ventilation high. We are only doing Essential Fittings currently as we cannot operate Retul outside. We hope to start Retul fits in October. If you have a need to take care of an acute fitting issue or overall comfort please click "Book Now". Choose Manayunk -- Fittings -- Essential Fits to find the availability. As we get comfortable we will be able to offer more and more time slots throughout the week.

 Thank you for your patience. 

Bike Fitting

Led by certified fitter and owner, Brady Gibney, Cadence has averaged over 200 performance level fits each year since 2010. We pride ourselves in having great fitters with some of the best technology. Cadence uses the Body Geometry (BG) methodology, developed by Dr. Andy Pruitt and Specialized and technology from Retul. We offer three levels of fit to accommodate everyone from the beginner looking to be comfortable to the seasoned racer looking for every available watt.

($225 with bike purchase)

Time allotted for schedule:

3 Hours

Includes a 1 hour follow up 4-6 weeks after your initial fit

Leave no stone unturned with this comprehensive, dynamic fit. Starting with a pre-fit physical assessment, your fitter will take into account your body’s limitations, previous injuries and pains, and your goals on the bike. From there, we turn to our Vantage Motion Capture System to collect real-time, three-dimensional data from your pedal stroke. This data is then compiled into our system so that your fitter can look at your numbers and dial you into your perfect ride position.

Lactate Threshold & VO2 MAX



INSCYD is an improvement over traditional VO2 and lactate testing, combining the benefits of both while also providing additional information that previously was unavailable. It gives a full athlete profile that can help maximize your training and performance, including recovery, race strategy, fueling and much more. It also measures VLaMax, the endurance athlete’s “secret weapon”.

Economy Testing 



Economy testing is for long endurance athletes (marathon, iron-distance triathlon, RAAM, etc). This test involves a similar protocol to the AT & VO2 Max test above but does not take the athlete to max. Instead we choose 4-5 stages near race pace to determine effeciency and caloric needs for a better race-day strategy.

Lactate Threshold


Our original lab test. Blood samples are taken from the athletes finger every three minutes until threshold has been crossed. This is a very repeatable test and easy to do on the road or in the lab.

Anaerobic Threshold & VO2 MAX 


This is by far our most popular option. Choose this if you want the most accurate readings for both anaerobic threshold and VO2 max. This test involves a 30 minute warm up followed by a ramp style test, increasing work load every two minutes until failure.
