Bike Fitting Services
At Bruce's Cycle Works we have been using professional bike fit tools longer than anyone else in Saskatoon. We also firmly believe that a properly fit bicycle will improve your enjoyment of the sport of cycling whether you have a road, tri, or mountain bike!
The experience and training of our staff make them eminently qualified to provide professional bike fit services. Cory has a degree in Kinesiology which provides him with a unique set of skills and understanding of the biomechanics involved in bike fit to go along with his Specialized Body Geometry training. Neil has a master's degree in mechanical engineering, is a certified level III cycling coach and active triathlon coach.
Specialized Body Geometry Bike Fit
The Specialized BG FIT (Body Geometry Fit Integration Technology) system was developed during a long partnership with Dr. Andy Pruitt Ed.D., PA of the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine. This scientifically based bicycle fitting system will allow you to rider faster, longer and in great comfort!
The BG FIT starts with a pre-fit interview to determine your injury history, fit needs, and cycling goals. The interview is followed by a flexibility assessment to gain an accurate picture of your flexibility, physical attributes including assessment of foot structure, knee position, spinal curve, shoulder extension, hip flexion, and leg length to name the major points. From here the fit progresses to assessment of the rider on the bike to deliver a neutral position that is both powerful, and comfortable. Adjustments to seat height, handlebar height, stem length and cleat position are performed. The next step is to optimize hip, knee, and foot alignment for greater performance, balanced power delivery, including
Bike Fitting Tools
At Bruce's Cycle Works, we have a complete array of bike fitting tools to assist us in fitting your bike properly to you. Our most powerful tools are a combination of Specialized BG fitting tools and the Juteau-Cantin Bike Platform and squares. These allow us to work with you on your bike (or the bike you are about to purchase) and make precise measurements and adjustments to your position. We also have the ability to attach your bicycle to a TACX power meter to simulate real-world pedaling loads to allow us to evaluate changes in position on kinetic ergonomics and make appropriate changes.
In addition to the BG fit and Juteau-Cantin tools, we have a wide array ofstems, handlebars, BG saddles, BG footbeds, BG shims, and axle extenders to ensure that your bike fits you properly.
