A Balanced BikeGrace BIcycles is the only certified Retul bike fitter in Massachusetts 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.

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

CO2 Safety - Take extra precautions using CO2 inflators on Presta valves that have replaceable cores. The drastic pressure drop as the CO2 leaves the cartridge super-cools the cartridge and the adapter. In damp weather, this can freeze the adapter to the valve. And when you unscrew the adapter, you end up extracting the valve core with it, deflating the tube you just inflated. Argh! To prevent this, use this trick: After inflation, squirt the valve with some water from your water bottle to de-ice things and then carefully remove the adapter from the valve.

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

damping
How suspensions are controlled to get them to react to impacts the way you want. An un-damped suspension might provide too much springiness or too rapid action turning the bicycle into a dangerous bucking bronco. Damped correctly, a suspension will absorb the bumps predictably providing control and boosting your confidence.
