Bicycle Fitting Services

Spokes Etc. offers professional bicycle fitting services at all five locations. Because no two riders are alike, we work with you and your bicycle to determine the optimal riding position to meet your riding needs and preferences. With a professional fit from Spokes, you'll increase performance, comfort and efficiency on every ride.

Fit Room - Spokes Etc. ViennaWe take a comprehensive approach to fitting. Our process starts with an interview with you, the rider, to assess your preferred riding style. We want to know how you ride, and we tailor the fit process to your needs. We'll discuss your goals, strengths and limitations on the bicycle. We'll also evaluate your physical needs and assess flexibility, proportions, and physiological uniqueness. With this information, we can then consider a variety of important adjustments to acheive your perfect fit:

  • Saddle Height – the distance from the top of the saddle to the bottom of the pedal stroke.
  • Fore & Aft Adjustment – The position of the saddle forward or backward on the seat post
  • Saddle Angle – The angle of the saddle up or down
  • Reach Analysis – The distance from the saddle to the handlebars, and the height of the handlebar relative to the height of the saddle.
  • Handlebar and Hood Position Adjustment – the placement of the levers to ensure proper hand position.
  • Cleat Placement – Ensuring proper foot placement on the pedal for optimum power transfer.

In some cases, all of these adjustments can be made without changing the existing componentry on the bike, but if changes are required, our expert fitters will make a recommendation to give you the best fit. We currently offer fitting services for road, mountain, and triathlon bikes, as well as a fitting for those interested in a fully-customized frame. 

  • Road / Mountain Fit - $150
  • Triathlon Fit - $200

A few more things you should know about bicycle fitting at Spokes Etc.:

  • Please allow 1.5 to 2 hours for your fitting – we don't want to rush such an important process.
  • Please arrive promptly for your appointment, ready to ride in your cycling gear.
  • If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please contact us in advance.
  • Adjustments and tweaks can be made for up to 12 months after your initial fit, free of charge.
  • The cost of new components is not included in the price of the fitting.
  • Installing new parts may require additional time or require a separate labor cost.
