Bike Fit – [Wheat Ridge Cyclery]


There was no question in my mind, that once Cervelo presented me with my new P3, that I would be going to Wheat Ridge Cyclery to have the world-renowned expertize knowledge of Adam De La Peña to perform my bike fit. A top-of-the-line bike is absolutely gorgeous to look at, and it is easy to get caught up in the thoughts of how fast it will make you to have: a carbon frame, with aero wheels and of course, the best components. As you are looking at the bike it almost whispers in your ear, “I am a weapon of mass destruction waiting to be unleashed!” However, what is often overlooked is the bike cannot ride itself. If the engine (you) does not fit the bike, it is like an abusive relationship. You are both holding one another back from your full potential. The best relationships are ones where both sides make each other better. In order to reap the rewards of having a fast bike, you must have a perfect fit!

That is where Wheat Ridge Cyclery, steps in. They have, by far, the most knowledgeable and genuine fitters on staff. They also have the most up to date fitting equipment and tools required to maximize their time spent and be extremely meticulous. They spend all the time needed to dial in your fit specifically for your needs and according to your flexibility, to not only make you aerodynamic but almost more importantly, comfortable on the bike.

Bike fits are not just for new bikes either! If you are uncomfortable on your bike that is a clear sign you might need some adjustments. Some other clear indications that a bike fit would be a great investment is if you suffer from your hands going numb. If you have any points of pain while riding or right after riding, such as knee, hip or even shoulder and/or neck pain. A big reason to get a bike fit, is if you have had any major changes to your body such as any of the following: lost a ton of weight, put on a ton of weight, got in a car accident, gained or lost flexibility, etc.

If you are unsure if you need a bike fit, Wheat Ridge Cyclery will be able to determine if it is a wise decision based on your specific needs.

It about time that we stop pretending that our bikes are perfect for us and actually make them perfect. Enjoy riding with comfort, speed and ease after having a bike fit at Wheat Ridge Cyclery!!!
