Proper bike fit is essential for comfortable and efficient riding. cycles de ORO's Fit process uses a collection of precision tools and data, combined with the famous "Oracle of Delphi" process, that allow us to efficiently, discreetly and precisely measure you to determine your exact frame size (seat-tube length and angle, and top-tube length) and the proper adjustments for the points where you contact your bicycle.

Multiple tools are used to achieve great Fit; the classic time-proven FIT KIT and the modern and comprehensive Body Geometry system. In the final analysis, it is the life experience and intuitive capabilities of the Body Geometry Fit technician that make the difference. Too many "short timers" or relatively inexperienced bike shop personnel or coaches use elaborate "smoke and mirrors" to try to short cut this process. Be smart and trust experience. Look at our customer feedback to see positive reports.


Ride faster, more comfortably and with less effort!

If this sounds complicated, it is! However, this process will make a world of difference in your enjoyment of cycling. Fit is the key to riding efficiently on any new frame or bicycle and is HUGELY important, whether you ride for recreation, fitness or fun, or on the road or dirt.

If you're uncomfortable on your bike, suffering from:
Numb hands or feet?   Sore rear end?  Stiff neck? Aching wrists?  Back problems?

Then it's very likely that a poor bicycle fit is contributing to the problems if not causing them. cycles de ORO's trained technician can help.

We also recommend being analyzed if you're shopping for a new bicycle and aren't sure what size is right. or if you're buying a frame set to build into your dream bike. Once we've measured you, you'll know the proper size, which will make it a lot easier to pick out the right bike or frame. Equally important, it will allow ruling out those models that don't fall within your fit requirements, which is a great help if you're comparing many different brands.
