A BalaGrace BIcycles is the only certified Retul bike fitter in Massachusettsnced 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.

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

Saddle Position Spells Satisfaction (Or Suffering) - The angle and position of your bike's saddle directly contributes to your comfort. Sure, saddle height is important. Yet saddle tilt and the saddle's fore/aft positioning also relate to how your hands, neck and back feel when you ride. For instance, if the nose of the saddle tilts too low, gravity forces your torso to slide forward as you ride, putting extra pressure on your palms. Tilted too far back (the saddle nose is too high) pressure on sensitive soft tissue can lead to serious complications and pain. Sliding the saddle too far forward or too far back affects your spine, neck, shoulders, arms and hands. It takes experience (and sometimes a few adjustments) to find the optimum saddle position for comfort and pedaling efficiency. If you're experiencing any saddle discomfort, please contact us to discuss possible solutions.
