Don’t ride with pain. Get fit today!

Who is candidate for a bike fit? You don’t have to be a pro cyclist or a racer to see the benefits. With a proper bike fit, anyone can see their cycling improve. Proper positioning on the bike FOR YOUR BODY ensures you’re maximizing your effort (read: watts) while minimizing discomfort. So, if you’re spending ANY time on a bike, consider getting fit.

Keep in mind that our bodies change over time. With more time spent cycling, our body position can change. Flexibility can improve. On the flip side, as we age, we might lose some flexibility. Your position on the bike will change as your experience as a cyclist increases. If it’s been a while since you’ve been fit or if you’re noticing any pain during or after rides, contact us at Higher Gear to schedule your fit.
