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 IF Steel Club Racer

After 20,857 miles on his beloved Lemond Alpe D'Huez, D.S. decided that it was time for new bike. Needless to say, after putting that many miles on a bike, it becomes a part of your life. D. didn't know this, but we felt both excited and daunted at the challenge of designing and building the bike that would replace his Lemond. Because D. was going to use this bike in many ways, we decided that I.F.'s Club Racer would fit the bill. We designed the Club Racer to have the responsive handling of a refined stage racing bike, but still be able to take 28C tires, fenders, and a rear rack and light panniers if needed. For serviceability and durability, D. chose Campagnolo Chorus and we built his wheels using DT Swiss 240S hubs mated to Mavic Open Pro rims.

After two months with his IF, D. emailed, "I continue to enjoy my Club Racer. I have 1150 or so miles on it now. It's comfortable on the slow rides (I led an MIT cycling club ride with someone on a hybrid and finished the ride at 13mph and did a 23 miles 18mph ride after work yesterday. I'm consistently faster this year while still comfortable after 90-100 mile weekends. Thanks again for a great frame and build."

Riding with Grace

Fender Fun - When the day's forecast calls for scattered mud showers and you have no fender in sight, and can't come by to pickup one, here's an easy and fun solution: Longitudinally cut in half a large plastic Gatorade bottle. These two pieces are now your front fender. Using big zip-ties, attach one piece facing forward off your fork crown and the other facing backwards, or on the middle of your down tube. Shape the plastic as needed and remove any sharp points for safety (sometimes it's easier to shape before the fenders are zip-tied on). You can even style out your handcrafted fender with stickers!
