Performance Bike Fits
A properly fitted bike will make the most effective use of your energy, make your ride more comfortable, and help prevent injury.
Reasons to get a bike fit at IMPACT:
- To improve your ride performance and efficiency
- You’ve previously had a bike fit without much change to your pain or efficiency
- You would like to prevent injury
- To assess your alignment while riding
- You’re experiencing pain while riding*
What to expect during a bike fit?
During your bike fit we will first determine your cycling goals, identify prior injuries and discuss any pain/discomfort you feel while riding.
We will evaluate your alignment off the bike. We will then watch you pedal, assess your alignment, measure you both on and off the bike and make adjustments to your bike as applicable. We will evaluate both your profile on the bike and also your foot/pedal interface (for those who use clipless pedals).
How is a bike fit at IMPACT different from a bike fit at a local bike shop?
We will perform a complete musculoskeletal evaluation to identify biomechanical issues that may cause pain or malalignment while cycling. We will focus on your postural asymmetry both on and off the bike. We will evaluate your alignment, strength, and flexibility to fit your bike to YOU.
*If you have pain related to biking, we may be able to treat the bike fit as a physical therapy evaluation appointment and bill your insurance. Call 651-646-7246 for more information!
What to bring to your Bike Fit?
Bring your bike and the biking clothes and shoes you typically wear when you ride. If you use clipless pedals it is important that you bring your cycling shoes with you to your appointment.
