Retul - The Best in Bike Fit

Certified Retul Bike Fitters (like us!) offer the best in bike fitting solutions...

What is Retul?

Retul is a cycling-specific 3D motion capture system that reads a rider's movements while he or she is pedaling on the bike, and allow us to adjust a rider's postion using objective and highly accurate fit data.

Why focus on bike fit?

A proper bike fit is essential for optimarl performance, efficiency, injury preventionm, and comfort on the bike. A proper fit of the bike to the rider helps prevent or mitigate pain that is commin in the knee, hip, and lower back. To accomplish this, we conduct a detailed evaluation of the rider and capture highly-specific data on the rider's movement patterns while riding. The rider's feedback and this data are used to make personalized fit decisions to optimize the bike's fit to the rider.

We'll Fit You Right!

How well your bicycle fits you determines a lot. It can mean the difference between comfort and pain, fast and slow, safe and unsafe.

Proper fitting starts with selecting the right size bike frame. Most of our bikes are not one-size-fits-all, but rather, come in different frame measurements to help you obtain the best overall fit. Frame size is usually measured along the length of the seat tube (the tube which supports a bike’s seat and seatpost). While measurement standards vary a bit between different manufacturers, we can help you determine the ideal range of sizes that would offer you your best match to your body type and riding style.

What does body type have to do with fit? Well, have you ever heard someone say, “He’s a tall drink of water” or “She’s all legs”? The point is: Each of us has a different body style. And this has to be taken into account when fitting for a bike.

What's Your Riding Style?

How does your riding style relate to proper fit? Let’s say you want to cruise the bike paths on a bike that lets you sit upright where you get a good view of the scenery. That calls for a different frame size, bike type and fit approach than, say, a time-trial racer who needs to be positioned for optimum aerodynamics and speed.

Better Bike Parts Can Be Adjusted

Beyond frame size, other components of a bike also contribute greatly to a good fit. Take seats, for instance. What's the best height for your bike seat? How far forward or back of center is your correct seat position? The tilt of the seat is also adjustable. Other factors to know more about include: stem length and height; crankarm length; and, what width and shape of handlebars work best for you.

No Matter Where You Bought Your Bike, Great Fit Starts Here

We love helping our customers get the right fit. And if you didn’t buy your bike from us, worry not. Just bring your bike in for a complimentary review of the fit basics so you know what changes, if any, you might want to consider. We look forward to seeing you
