What is Motion Capture & Dynamic Analysis?

We utilize a high-speed camera to digitally record a rider in motion and software to analyze the motions and alignment in key riding positions. This technology allows our fitter to observe and measure your pedaling and biomechanics as it actually happens.  You will see, step-by-step, what your body is doing on the bike throughout the entire process.  

Our Purely Custom Fit Bike is used on all drop bar, triathlon, and time trial fits.  Mountain bike and hybrid fits are performed on the customer's bicycle on a rear wheel trainer.

Why do I need different parts on my new bike?

It's common for a brand new or existing bike to need a different saddle, handlebar, stem, or crank to provide a proper fit.  Our goal is to help create the most enjoyable riding experience for you.  Please bring all your riding gear to your fitting session, including your bike, favorite riding shorts, jersey, gloves and water.  If you have any extra parts, such as stems or saddles, bring them along too. 

Following a fit session, your bike will be put into the queue in our bike service department to get any new parts installed.  The cost and installation of any parts required is not included with your bike fitting, and will be performed at our current bike service rates. 

Standard Level Bike Fitting - $250

Cost is $125 when you purchase your new bike from Fitness Central.

The Standard Level Bike Fitting is our starting point for most road, mountain, hybrid, and cyclocross riders.  This 2-3 hour session will look at getting the bike set up to your unique body.  We focus on your contact points with the bike and how they affect your comfort and performance.  This is vital when purchasing a new bicycle.

The standard level session includes:

  • Interview, physical history & rider goals
  • Standing visual alignment assessment
  • Basic physical flexibility & stability assessment
  • Foot/pedal/cleat analysis and alignment
  • Upper & lower body analysis
  • Side profile 2D video analysis of cycling position throughout the process
  • Detailed post-fit Motion Capture report
  • 60-day Fit Comfort Guarantee

Advanced Level Bike Fitting - $300

Cost is $200 when you purchase your new bike from Fitness Central.

The Advanced Level Bike Fitting is our most comprehensive fitting service designed for road, mountain, hybrid, and cyclocross riders. This 3-4 hour session will analyze the body from a 360 degree perspective, incorporate advanced level physical assessments, and stability testing. This level of fitting may require follow up visits.

The advanced level session includes:

  • All aspects of our Standard Level Bike Fitting
  • Advanced level physical flexibility and range of motion tests
  • Advanced level strength and stability tests
  • Static and dynamic foot assessment with insole sizing
  • 360 Degree Motion Capture Analysis
  • Knee tracking analysis

The Advanced Level Fit requires more time and focus to look at other areas of concern, which are not covered through a Standard Fitting.

Triathlon Bike Fitting - $300

Cost is $150 when you purchase your new bike from Fitness Central.

Triathlon Bike Fit utilizes aspects of both Standard and Advanced Level fits and focuses more on the individual riders goals and distance.  Because the tri fit pushes the limits of a persons flexibility, it is very important to optimize positioning on the bike to conserve energy for the run.  This is a 3-4 hour session.  Riders should bring their tri kit and helmet.

The triathlon level session includes:

  • All aspects of Standard Level Bike Fitting
  • Crank length analysis
  • 360 Degree Motion Capture Analysis
  • Knee tracking analysis
  • Pedal pressure analysis

Triathletes are encouraged to schedule fits, at least 2 months prior to their next race.  The body needs time to get used to new positions and it will allow our fitter to work with you to optimize comfort, power, sustainability, and energy conservation.

Fit Follow-up/Refit Services - $100/hour

All follow-up visits must be preceded by a full level fit session

Every level of our fitting sessions come with a 60-day fit comfort guarantee to fine tune changes and adjustments that we made in that session. We will schedule a follow-up visit approximately 30 days after your fit session. If there is additional time needed from a Standard Fit to perform more advanced level assessments and adjustments, follow-up services are subject to a $100 hourly rate.

A yearly fit check-up is recommended to ensure the bike is optimized for you changing body and changing goals. This hourly rate is applicable to anyone that has had a fit performed and just needs adjustments.

Basic Bike Sizing

FREE when you purchase your bike from Fitness Central.

We will do our best to get you on the right bike in the right size. Whether you are buying a high-end carbon fiber road bike, trail taming full-suspension mountain bike or comfortable cruiser-style bike, we can easily make sure that you are in the right position to enjoy your experience.  Basic bike sizing will ensure the seat and handlebars are at the appropriate height for you.*

  • Saddle height & for/aft adjust
  • Stem/handlebar height adjust
  • Test ride comfort check

*Note: Basic bike sizing is not a professional bike fitting.  Bike sizing is a quick and generic way for us to set your bike up for your leg length.  It does not take into account anything about your flexibility, stability, injuries or any other physical limitations.  Bike sizing does not include any of the paid services listed above.  If, after riding, you determine that your bike could fit you better, we offer the above services to address your specific individual needs.
