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

Featured Bicycle- Independent Fabrication

Custom IF Crown Jewel SE

After years of faithful service, P.C. set aside his Raleigh road bike for this custom I.F. Crown Jewel SE. After a positional fitting, P. went through the bike design process with us talking about aesthetics, component selection, and ride characteristics. Built with a steel tubeset picked for his weight and riding style, P.'s new bike has enabled him to ride farther, faster, with greater comfort and power economy.

Riding with Grace

Simple Brake Tuning - As you ride and use your brakes, the brake pads wear slightly. You feel this as more travel in the levers. You should adjust this additional travel out before it gets to the point of jeopardizing your braking. Fortunately, there's an easy way to do this on almost all modern bicycles. Look for knurled adjusting barrels on the levers (on most off-road bikes) or on the brake calipers (most road bikes). Turn these barrels (usually counter-clockwise) to quickly restore optimum braking.
