Fitting

Why Bike Fit? A properly fit bike is a comfortable bike!

Having your bike fit your body is at least as important as which bike you ride. At West Point Cycles, trained professionals work by appointment to adjust your new or existing bike to fit you perfectly. With 4 Serotta trained and Certified Fit Technicians on staff, we are able to properly set up your new or existing bike to provide maximum performance as well as comfort. Considerations such as age, flexibility and gender are some of the main factors in determining the best fit for you. West Point Cycles’ large inventory of stems, handlebars and anatomically correct saddles assure you a proper fit and a faster, more comfortable ride.

The fitter acts as a facilitator, moving the rider through a series of positions, and using feedback from the rider to select the ideal position. In particular, the fitter will spend a considerable amount of time establishing the proper cockpit length and hip angle. All these measurements and adjustments help ensure that the rider is comfortable and injury free as well as efficient and fast.

The perfect fit is comfortable!

For more information on proper bike fit please contact Andrew Fullerton our Senior Fit Specialist.

All bicycle fits are done by appointment. Deposits are required to book a bicycle fit and we require 48 hour notice to cancel a fit appointment.

All bicycle fits come with a 90 day fit guarantee.**

Pressure Analysis Saddle Fit (P.A.T.)* 

$99

 
Pressure Analysis Saddle Fit

West Point Multisport is utilizing new pressure mapping technology to help you choose the most appropriate saddle for your needs. Use of this Pressure Analysis Tool (P.A.T.) provides the ability to visually displays a rider’s pressure distribution across the saddle to see if they are riding the right one. A saddle fit includes full saddle evaluation of proper sit bone (ischial tuberosity) positioning, analysis of pressure distribution upon the saddle while riding, and leg length and fore/aft integration with the pedal system. The fitter works with the rider to establish proper saddle height and sitting position as well as evaluates saddle selection with the rider for best comfort.

Please allow approximately 45 minutes for fit.

P.A.T. Saddle Fit with Cleat Adjustment* 

$129
Saddle Fit with Cleat Adjustment at West Point Cycles
 

A Cleat Fitting assures proper fore/aft and rotational placement of cleats on cycling shoes. It is recommended with the purchase of new cycling shoes or pedals. The fitting takes place with your bicycle in a stationary trainer where you will be instructed on how to use your pedals, with plenty of practice getting in and out. West Point’s fitting methodology begins with proper cycling shoe and foot bed selection. Neutral cleat positioning will be established and is based on your individual foot structure and any anatomical needs you may posses. It then progresses up the leg. Some areas of focus will be ankle articulation (pedaling dynamics), knee flexion and pelvic angle.

A saddle fit includes full saddle evaluation of proper sit bone (ischial tuberosity) positioning, along with leg length and fore/aft integration with pedal system. In a saddle fit, the fitter works with the rider to establish proper saddle height and sitting position as well as evaluates saddle selection with the rider.

Please allow approximately 1 hour for fit.

At this point, we will assess the key aspects of your current cycling position. If necessary, the Performance Fitting allows us to make pertinent changes to your bicycle by adjusting your pre-existing components. If deemed essential, we will collaboratively select new components in an effort to establish your most desirable cycling position within the boundaries of your existing frame, enabling you to ride faster, longer, injury free and in greater comfort.

Performance Triathlon Fit*

Performance Triathlon Bike Fit at West Point Cycles
 

Our Fit Technicians will work with you to establish the most efficient and aerodynamic riding position based on your flexibility and the type of events you ride. Triathlon bike geometry is specific to the forward aero position and includes geometry changes, like shorter head tubes and chain stays, to accommodate the lower body position used in an aero position while helping to keep weight distribution even and the bike stable and handling properly. If you become a serious triathlete, you owe it to yourself to own a triathlon specific bike for races and a road bike that you can do much of your training on.

Please allow approximately 2.5 hours for fit.

 

Serotta Size Cycle Fitting* 

$249
Serotta Size Cycle Fitting at West Point Cycles
 

The Size Cycle is a fully adjustable stationary bicycle designed to give our Fit Technicians a blank slate for determining your proper fit. Crank length, seat height, seat angle, top tube length, stem height, and stem length can all be adjusted independently. The Size Cycle gives us endless options to adjust your position for comfort and performance. The end result is three points in space – pedals, saddle, and handlebars – that represent your ideal position. The Size Cycle is primarily used during the purchase of a custom bicycle, and is included at no charge with the purchase of a custom frame or bicycle.

Please allow approximately 2 hours for fit.

 

The Fitting Process

  1. Comprehensive cycling related interview.

  2. Analysis of your current cycling position.

  3. Fundamental positioning based on you as an individual will be established: saddle height (leg extension) is determined by an objective process involving, but not limited to, measuring knee flexion using anatomical markers while taking into account your individual pedaling technique; an objectively neutral horizontal saddle position will be established; a proper hip angle, torso angle and correct shoulder/elbow/hand alignment will be achieved through appropriate handlebar positioning and/or aero bar positioning.

  4. Your pre-existing bicycle’s positioning coordinates and post-fit positioning coordinates will be maintained for future reference.

  5. You will be assisted by a professional, certified and career oriented Bicycle Fitter who is also an active cyclist.
