A Balanced Bike Fit is Key to Optimizing Your Cycling Performance

For every rider, good balance can be achieved by finding the optimal saddle height, adjusting the saddle's horizontal position, achieving a proper reach from the saddle to the handlebars, and optimizing handlebar height relative to saddle height. Some factors that can affect these critical adjustments include a rider's body measurements, age, weight, gender, flexibility, riding history, & chronic ailments.

Grace Bicycles uses the Retül 3D motion capture system and bike fit methodology, the same system adopted by pro teams like Radio Shack and Garmin-Chipotle.

Grace Bicycles owner Roy Cervantes is the only Retül fitter in Massachusetts certified by Retül University.   

At Grace Bicycles, we offer several levels of bike fit:

  • Basic bike fitting with every bicycle purchase
  • Existing bike fit: road, mountain, triathlon, comfort
  • Fitting for a custom bicycle
  • Shoe and cleat fitting

Custom Parlee Z1 SL

B.R.'s custom Parlee Z1 is a thinking man's superlight bicycle. He estimated the weight of complete bike before it was built by keeping a spreadsheet that tallied the frame weight, fork weight, and the weights of the individual components. We worked with him to make sure that the components being selected were not "stupid light", meaning that they had a very good track record of quality and durability as well as light weight.

Grace Bicycles custom fit & built Parlee Z1 Carbon bicycle

 Custom Parlee Z1 SL 12.7 lbs

 The result is a complete bike that weighs 12.7lbs, and complements B.R.'s spinning and climbing style very well. After all, that's what custom is all about. Click here for more photos of this and other Parlee bicycles we've built recently.

Riding with Grace

Group-Riding Smarts – The first rule of riding with others is communicating. Speak up! Ask where the ride is headed, if there are any hazards you should know about, what pace is planned, if people wait when there’s a flat tire, if there’s a rest stop, etc. Knowing these things will help you ride safely and enjoy the ride. Also, if you’re unfamiliar with group riding, it’s best to stay at the back where you can watch and learn what’s going on without being in the thick of the action.

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

bunny-hop
A useful maneuver for clearing obstacles such as curbs and logs. You either jump and lift both wheels simultaneously or you lift the front and then the rear wheel. Careful! If you tag the rear wheel, you'll probably crash (see "faceplant").
