Your bike tailored for you.

The best bike for you is the one that fits. Whether you are a recreational, competitive or pro rider, to get the best riding experience you need to be in your unique active riding position. This position will bring you more comfort, help you climb faster, descend more confidently and ride with less fatigue.

We are proud to offer Manitoba's only Certified Retul/Specialized Body Geometry Fit studio, with the highest level of training from Specialized Bicycle Component University Body Geometry Fitting System and additional training and experience with Retul University and Trek Precision Fit.

What To Expect

Your Retul bike fit is a personalized one-on-one consultation with a professionally trained Body Geometry/Retul Bike Fit Technician, designed to help you get the best experience - whether you are tweaking the fit of an existing bike or considering a new bike. The process will typically take a couple hours, and is broken down into 4 steps.

Pre-fit Interview

Your fit technician will talk with you about your riding experience, goals, and any relevant injury history or current areas of concern.

Physical Assessment

During the assessment, your fitter evaluates your strength and flexibility, collecting data he or she will use to tailor the contact points of your bike.

Ride Analysis

Your fitter will analyze your riding position with either 3D motion capture from Retul or video capture technology, and adjust accordingly in order to determine the best and most efficient ride position for you.

Follow Up

Following your fit you'll recieve a detailed report and measurements for your new position. After some time in your new position, you may want to schedule a follow-up to address any concerns.
