Professional Bike Fitting in Calgary
We have started offering professional bike fitting in Calgary at our Coach Hill clinic. Getting your bike properly adjusted to best suit your body can improve your comfort, performance, and overall enjoyment while riding your bike. Road racing bikes, mountain bikes, and even pathway cruisers can be adjusted to best fit their rider.
What Happens During a Bike Fit?
During a bike fitting appointment, the rider will first complete a mobility and strength assessment as well as an interview to determine how their body moves and their goals for the appointment.
Next, their on-bike position will be analyzed to determine what changes need to be made. The Bike Fitter will then use a variety of state-of-the-art tools and techniques to adjust the bike (and suggest changes of parts if needed), make changes to foot position in shoes using insoles and/or wedges, and develop an exercise program to address imbalances, immobility, and strength limitations that may be impacting the rider's on-bike experience.
Our experienced bike fitter, Colin Hillson, uses a biomechanical approach to ensure that bikes are not only adjusted to the unique build of every rider, but that the rider is given homecare exercises to help their bodies stay injury free for the riding season. This evidence-based technique helps tailor the rider's bike to them, but also properly trains their body for the bike.

FAQs on Bike Fitting
Not at all. Everyone from professional racers to the most recreational rider should have a properly fitting bike. Every bike fit is tailored to the type of riding you are doing, regardless if it is once a month or every day.
The initial bike fit session is a 90-minute appointment where the rider will complete a mobility and strength assessment as well as an interview to determine how their body moves and their goals for the appointment. Next, their on-bike position will be analyzed to determine what changes need to be made to both the bike and the rider’s body. Once those changes are made, and the rider has had the chance to have a few rides on the bike, a follow-up appointment may be booked if further work needs to be done. Follow-up appointments are generally 30 minutes long.
A bike fit can be done on any bike, from this year’s state-of-the-art rocket ship road bike to the 30-year-old cruiser you pulled out of the shed. Our bike fitter has access to parts and techniques that will work for most bikes from the last 60 years of bike production.
The cost of an initial bike fit appointment is $150 for the 90 minute appointment, and then follow up appointments cost $50 for 30 minutes.
