To be more comfortable, your bicycle must be adjusted to suit your unique body. The proper bicycle fitting must consider your cycling history, riding style, fitness and flexibility as well as dimensional measurements.

To be safer, adjustments must allow an optimal weight distribution on your bicycle. Too often, bicycles have poor handling characteristics caused by improper fit. Wobbly cornering, for example, is frequently caused by a poor bicycle fit, which creates an incorrect center of gravity on the bicycle and unsure steering. A proper fit avoids extremes that might reduce your cycling safety.

To be faster, adjustments should promote your most efficient and powerful pedaling technique. Every body is different, so fitting formulas based solely on static body measurements simply don't work for many people. Competitive cyclists must have a bicycle adjusted to them that accounts for their strengths, weaknesses, and unique fit requirements.

Fitting practices based on cycling tradition are rapidly being replaced by methods based on scientific research. BGI strives to use methods based on the most current fitting knowledge combined with the real-world experience gained from thousands of fittings.  Every BGI bicycle fit is unique because every cyclist has a unique combination of expectations and needs. Whether you're looking for increased comfort to finish longer rides or increased speed for a better chance to win that key race in your season, you will benefit from a BGI bicycle fitting.

Every rider, from competitive triathletes to touring enthusiasts, will benefit from a Retül fitting. Using the world’s only cycling-specific 3D motion capture system, including eight LED markers placed at anatomical landmarks and a motion capture camera, we measure your movements in three dimensions as you pedal. Data is collected dynamically, not from an isolated point of view. We use this information to adjust your fit, and you receive a full report with our findings and recommendations.

A BGI Intro Fitting Plus is the best route to making your bike path and recreational club cycling more comfortable. BGI Intro Fittings use current industry standards to set saddle height, saddle fore/aft, saddle angle, stem length, stem angle, etc. (modified to your body as fitter experience suggests). These fittings are not recommended for competitive cyclists or those with medical issues (e.g. LLD or knee surgery).


Allow 1 Hour for Appointment   •  Available Only at BGI North

For recreational cyclists who do not require a cleat fitting, we recommend our BGI Intro Fitting Basic service, which includes the same analysis and adjustments as the Intro Fitting Plus without the cleat fitting.


Allow 1/2 Hour for Appointment  •   Available Only at BGI North

Attention to detail will ensure you'll be riding in your most comfortable position when using aero bars on your road bike. Speed and comfort are not contradictory goals. This includes installation and adjustment of most clip-on aero bars. Can be scheduled with either BGI Intro Fitting.

Your feet experience more pressure and repetitive motion than your other bicycle contact points. This makes proper cleat adjustment key to injury prevention and performance improvement. Fore/aft and rotational adjustments and installation of any required BikeFit cleat wedges are all included in the BGI Cleat Fitting.
