Bike Fitting

The initial bike fit is for athletes who would like to benefit from a professional bike fit with Noa and have not worked with her previously. The type of bike you have and your ability level do not matter - we provide equal opportunity bike fitting services! Noa is experienced with road, MTB, cyclocross, track, triathlon, TT and tandam bike fits and has worked with recreational cyclists all the way to Olympic madalists. 

The Process

The bike fitting process takes 2:00-2:15 hours. 

  • A consultation to review your riding and athletic history, goals and objectives, current and past injuries, current training/riding, etc
  • A basic flexibility and structural assessment
  • Dynamic capture of an enormous amount of dynamic data from your pedaling stroke and tracking of all the moving parts of your body simultaneously while you ride your bike under different workloads, looking at both left and right side individually
  • Adjustments to your position on the bike and cleats, as needed
  • Technique & posture while riding, including prescription of exercises and technique correction, as needed
  • Digital measurement of the bike at it’s final set up, using the Retul Zin
  • After the bike fit, a file containing your position on the bike (left and right), your bike position and geometry will be uploaded to your account within our online booking system
  • Email support following the fitting during the adaptation period (Typically -3 weeks)

Sometimes we will split the bike fit into two parts and you will be asked to follow up with a health care professional (physiotherapist, chiropractor, sports medicine) before completing the bike fit. This does not change your bike fitting cost.

Tools Used

  • Eyes. Observing you while you ride and using years of bike fitting experience is as important as any gadget!
  • We are extremely proud to be the FIRST bike fitting studio in Canada to use the Retul 3D dynamic motion caption bike fitting tool. Noa has spent some time learning from Todd Carver of Retul and has been fitting hundreds of athletes using this tool since the beginning of 2008
  • For key instant & visual feedback, 2D (video) analysis is used, if needed
  • Retul Zin for measuring bike geometry

Bike Fit 'by the hour'

Available for those who have been previously fitted by Noa and would like to get fitted again. Because bike fits are dynamic in nature, a bike fit 'by the hour' can be done several months, a year, or more after the initial fit to make sure you are still dialed in on your bike.

Most athletes come in for a 'by the hour' fit because of changes in range of motion, changes in fitness level, different goals, a second and/or new bike, different bike shoes and/or saddle, etc. A 'fit check up' is recommended annually.
