Retül Fit – There is no better way to “become one with your bike” than going through the Retül Fit process. Cycling can, and should, be a lifelong passion, changing lives for the better. Retül Fit will ensure this is possible.
You will spend two uninterrupted hours with our professionally trained Fit Specialist. Because this is an appointment only service, our Fit Specialist will dedicate all their time to your fit. This is very important so the fitter can really get to know you, your history of injury, your goals on the bike, what you do for a living, and what might be bothering you on the bike. More importantly, you will also get to know our fitter, and can trust that our Fit Specialist will do everything they can for you to enjoy your bike!
The service that all discerning riders get. Our 15-step process will look at your body’s ranges of motion, flexibility and asymmetries (there is no such thing as a “perfect” body), understand your injury history, and your cycling goals; then we customize the bike to support your body.

You will go through the 15-step pre-fit assessment process. Our Fit Specialist will truly understand your body’s ranges of motion, flexibility, strengths, weaknesses and asymmetries. Without this thorough understanding of your body, a fitter can only guess on how to fit you. Our fitter WILL KNOW. He will know how to support your body on the bike, because he understands your body off the bike. There is no guesswork.
Only after our Fit Specialist has gone through a comprehensive interview and the pre-fit assessment process will he perform the 13-step process to make on-bike adjustments. Again, it is very critical to understand the rider’s goals and body to make the right support decisions on the bike. It is truly remarkable how moving touch points on the bike with incremental millimeter changes can be the difference between enjoying the bike, or having it hang in the garage.
Our Fit Specialist will make sure every touch point is in the right position to support your body in a neutral, safe and efficient position that is perfect for your cycling goals. Our fitter will also ensure that you have the most efficient cycling biomechanics possible. This is where the Retül Fit process really shines. Your fitter has been trained to understand how to increase your biomechanical efficiency as well as protecting you from injury. There is no way to separate out comfort, safety and efficiency!
The actual process looks like this:

- Lower extremity alignment
- Level pelvis
- Spinal curve evaluation
- Forward spinal flexion
- Cervical spine ROM (range of motion)
- Shoulder ROM
- Hamstring ROM
- Hip ROM
- Ankle ROM
- Leg length discrepancy
- Thomas test
- 1/3 knee bend
On-Bike Fit Process (what we will adjust on the bike and equipment)
- Saddle selection
- Cleat placement/rotation
- Saddle height
- Saddle fore/aft
- Handlebar width
- Handlebar reach and drop
- Handlebar rotation and lever position
- Hip angle
- Leg length discrepancy

The final step is for you to come back for a follow-up visit. This is very important as your body will go through an adaptation period. There may be some minor adjustments needed to your position once the body has adapted fully. This appointment should take no more than 30 minutes.
