About Our Fitter

Sizing and Fitting is overseen by Steve Dauphinais, our Certified Fit Professional.  With well over 2000 fits under his belt, he has the knowledge and experience to ensure that our fit process meets and exceeds your expectations.  Our methodology focuses on matching the clients physiology to the correct cycling position by using an extensive interview process, skeletal measurements, flexibility and range of motion assessment, and proven biomechanical evaluation techniques.  Our fit program has been developed through study and education of methods taught by Doctor Andy Pruitt (Boulder, CO, Center for Sports Medicine), Paul Swift (Bike Fit Systems), Paraic McGlynn (Cyclelogic) and Dan Empfield (SlowTwitch.com).  In addition Steve is F.I.S.T. certified,  Serotta Fit certified, Serotta Advanced Triathlon Fit Certified, and Trek Precision Fit Level 1 and 2 trained.  Our system is based on continuous improvement—each year we invest more time and money into our fit program seeking out more education and state of art fit tools.

Our Fit Cycle

Our Precision Fit cycle

We use the state-of-the-art Purely Custom fit cycle along with our other assortment of bicycle fit related tools.  This fit cycle allows us to make size/fit adjustments while the cyclist is pedaling.  Adjustments can be made to both the saddle and handlebar positions in both vertical and horizontal directions.  Because the rider never has to stop pedaling, they are better able to feel the changes for instant feedback.  Measuring scales built into the unit allow us to accurately note each position and to also transfer the final position to your bicycle.  A CompuTrainer load generator is built into the fit cycle creating a natural bicycle feel while giving pedal feed back via power output.  CompuTrainer's Spin Scan feature allow us to gain insight into your pedal stoke by separating your right and left side.  Fits can be performed for Road, Tri, Mountain, Hybrid...pretty much any bicycle position.

Saddle Pressure Mapping

Pressue mapping is the latest in bicycle fit technology.  It takes the guesswork out of saddle selection and allows us to accurately measure how pressure is distributed on the saddle to determine which saddle and position will result in the most comfort and performance for you.  If you have had problems withyour current saddle, or if you have tried may saddles without success, our pressure scaning a mapping is for you.
