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.

Custom IF Steel Crown Jewel
J.M. is a hard-working family man whose main vice is to ride. And ride. And ride. He first came to us with some fit issues on his trusty Klein Quantum, and we worked those issues out. He began saving for his new IF. One day, after the IF crew gave a presentation at our store, J. bought a ticket for a custom frameset that the IF Racing Team was raffling off. He won! Here is the result: A custom Steel Crown Jewel SE.
J.'s first impressions- "...this bike likes to climb. I thought my Klein was stiff when it came to resiting flex from pedal strokes - this bike is better! But there is no stiffness on the ride - very comfortable...I think we've done a remarkable thing here."
