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 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."

Riding with Grace

Bike Stolen? Get It Back! - If you're unlucky enough to have a bike stolen, don't assume it's gone for good. As long as you can identify the bike (you did record the serial number, didn't you?) and you're willing to do a little leg work, there's a chance of recovery. Immediately prepare a flyer with a photo and description of your bike. Include any details that make identification easier such as special accessories or markings on the bike. Post these flyers on telephone poles, on community bulletin boards, at colleges, by bus stops, in short, everywhere and anywhere. Also, hand them to all your friends and let us know as soon as possible so we can be on the alert, too (sometimes thieves think they can sell stolen bikes to bike shops and we're always on the lookout). It may seem hopeless, but you have a reasonable chance of getting the bike back if you act fast and don't give up. Good luck!
