Bike Fit:

WHAT IS A BIKE FIT?
Bikes come in a limited number of shapes and sizes. Cyclists do not. Bike manufacturers use adjustable components so their bikes can be made to accommodate a larger cross-section of riders. Our bike fitter knows which adjustments needs to be made to each of these components so that you and your bicycle can truly become one. At Cap`s we have NCCP Level 2 Cycling Coach and certified Retul Bike Fitter, Ryan Petersen,  (one of only two Level 2 Bike Fitters in the province).

WHO NEEDS A BIKE FIT?
Anyone who plans to spend any length of time riding a bicycle will benefit greatly from a professional bike fit. A proper fit can:

  • Improve overall rider comfort
  • Help prevent cycling-induced repetitive stress injuries
  • Reduce or eliminate back, knee, neck and wrist pain
  • Reduce or eliminate “hot foot”
  • Reduce or eliminate saddle discomfort and genital numbness
  • Reduce or eliminate numbness in the hands and fingers
  • Reduce rider fatigue


Our bikes all come with a sizing and bike setup and also include a $25 Bike Fit Coupon to be applied to more advanced bike fitting services.

Please note: Full deposit refund if cancellation is within 48 hours of booking.
