Bluegrass Bicycle Company
Lifetime, Relationship-Based Fitting ~ $500
We begin with a 4-hour appointment where we get to know you and your equipment. We'll discuss your motivations for riding, riding history, bikes you've owned, physical condition, what your typical riding is like and what your riding goals are. We'll also gather lots of information about you and your bike to help us find your perfect fit and to construct a valuable database that we can use in the future as fitting needs occur.
We cover all aspects of bike fit including shoe fit, proper foot support and orthotics, cleat position, saddle height, saddle angle, saddle fore-aft, saddle choice, reach to handlebars, handlebar and stem assessment and height of handlebars. We also cover important aspects of riding including hand positions, pedaling technique, shifting and braking.
After finding an excellent starting point we will turn you loose to enjoy your new fit. We will then encourage you to follow up with us to make sure that we have been completely successful.
~ Due to increase in time, setup and additional body measurements there is an added $75 surcharge for fitting bolt-on aero bars.
Rental Bike Setup Communication ~ $100
* This service is only available for fitting clients.
Whether you are renting a bike on vacation or traveling with a tour group, we will help ensure your fit setup is as close as possible. We will gladly communicate key fit measurements to your rental bike provider and answer any followup questions they may have when configuring your bike. Throughout your time on the bike we will be available should you have any questions/issues regarding your fit setup.
Unlike most bicycle fittings on the market, our fitting is good for as long as you own your bike! We use a unique lifetime, relationship-based approach to bicycle fitting. We do not think that it is good business or good sense to fit people in a "one-and-done" fashion.
The majority of our business comes from word-of-mouth recommendations. Any success that we have had in bicycle fitting can and should be measured by the happiness, comfort and performance of our clients.
There is no way we can cover all of the details or philosophy behind our fitting methods in this space. However, we would love to talk to you over the phone or in person if you'd like more details or if you have any bicycle fitting questions.
We offer a Lifetime, Relationship-Based Fitting that covers any fitting related needs and adjustments during the life of your bike. With 30 years of combined bicycle fitting experience, we have fit thousands of cyclists of all types.
Free lifetime fitting adjustments include:
~ Adjustments due to necessary fitting related parts changes such as saddle, seatpost, shoes, pedals, stem, handlebar and crank.
~ Adjustments and resetting due to crash, packing bike for travel and adjustments made by client or others.
~ Adjustments related to body changes such as injury, weight changes or age.
~ Adjustments related to changes in riding style and physical goals.
~ Accurate re-positioning of new cleats.
~ Access to our handlebar stem exchange program allowing clients to try different lengths and angles of stems to find the perfect fit.
~ Full service shoe fitting and assessment with Lake Shoes.
The human interface with a bicycle is dynamic and complex, and it suits itself perfectly to a long-term, relationship-based fitting approach.
