FREQUENT QUESTIONS

Who should get a bike fit?

Any rider who wants to improve their riding experience is a good candidate for a professional bike fit. It is often thought that investing in a bike fit is reserved for elite/pro cyclists. Though a good integration of your body's characteristics to your bike is really just as important as the bike you choose for your style of riding.

What is bike fit?

Bike fit is the process of changing a rider’s on-bike position and bicycle interface to achieve an amicable interaction between several mechanical variables such as exercise economy, mechanical efficiency, and comfort—all while reducing the risk of injury for rider safety. A proper bike-body integration can completely change your cycling experience. 

Where does this take place?

Erg fittings are taking place at Paradise Garage in the Short North in Columbus, Ohio. Mobile fitting can also be arranged at a location of your choice. Contact Eric@Ergcycling.com to learn more details.

Why is bike fit important?

1. Riding a bike is supposed to be enjoyable and comfortable.

2. Bikes come in limited shapes and sizes, but riders do not.

3. A good fit increases pedaling efficiency and comfort—while also reducing risk of injury.

4. Your riding experience should be free from things like tingling hands, saddle discomfort, numb feet, or a sore neck.

How do I schedule?

You can schedule at the Get a Fit page.

Or, email Eric at Eric@Ergcycling.com

What do I wear?

Wear any clothing that you would normally be riding in. The closer you can replicate your normal riding wear, the better. For example, athletic shoes and shorts that you ride in, your new team kit, tri-kit, whatever. If you ride with shoe and pedal clip-in systems, please bring your shoes.

How long does a fit take?

The duration of fittings can vary depending on several factors; complexity of fit such as a road bike with no suspension or aerobars vs. a mountain bike with full suspension or a Tri bike where several additional bike specific characteristics need to be addressed to achieve optimal ergonomics. Erg aims for 1.5 to 2.5 hours tops.

What if I don’t like the fit once I go ride?

Erg advocates for multiple fitting sessions to achieve adaptation and satisfaction. Reason being, the body needs time to adapt; especially if you are an avid rider, a racer, or someone that has spent a long time in the same position. Erg’s process is to assess, modify, and repeat as necessary. Additionally, Erg can be available for a tweak ride (Twëk Rïde) in which you and the fitter simply go out for a ride to iron out the finite details that simply can’t be addressed on the trainer.

Copious notes are taken at the beginning of the fitting process such that if the original fit needs to be replicated, it can be. Notes are also provided to the rider upon request so you can always go back.

Training before hand?

Try and show up recovered and ready to work a bit. You will be on and off the trainer frequently. Erg also advocates for proper hydration leading up to your fitting as dehydration can influence many things in a fitting such as flexibility, muscular fatigue, and what/how you are feeling when changes are made.
