What is your method to determine fit?


It really depends on the rider, some folks come to me with a set of numbers that theyíve honed over years or decades and for the most part Iím fine with this as long as their fit doesnít seem way outside the norm. The most common scenario is a rider whoís had several bikes over the years but hasnít found one that they feel really ďfitsĒ perfectly, and then itís usually a matter of taking a look at their bike(s) and having a conversation about the issues theyíre having, whether it be discomfort, pain or just a bike thatís too big or small for them. If folks are really unsure of their fit and visiting the Milwaukee area is possible, I work closely with a professional fitter at Benís Cycles and what we typically do then is to schedule a fit and Iíll sit in while Brett either adjusts the fit on their existing bike or fits them on a stock bike off the showroom floor. Basically what weíre trying to accomplish during this process it finding the correct position of the 3 contact points (bottom bracket, saddle and handlebar) on the bike and their relationship to one another. Once I have those numbers, I can use my design program to connect those dots in a way that incorporates both the riders fit along with the intended purpose of the bike, whether itís going to be a race bike or a loaded tourer will dictate quite a bit of the design.
