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

>PREFIT 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.

<ON-BIKE ASSESSMENT 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 receive 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.
