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 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.

 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

Softer Is Usually Better – If you’re uncomfortable on your road bike, you might check the tire pressure. Today’s tires usually have recommended inflation ratings printed on the sidewalls. If you’re finding the ride rough, it could be because the tires have been inflated to the highest end of the scale. Unless you're a heavier rider, there's usually no need to pump your tires this hard. For example, you might be riding on 115psi. If that’s the case, try dropping the pressure about 10psi and see if your bike doesn’t ride more smoothly. And, don’t worry about riding with 105psi. That’ll work fine.
