The equipment isn't nearly as important as the fitter. A bicycle fitter either knows how to fit or he/she doesn't, period.
Solon Bicycle has been performing custom bicycle fittings for over 12 years using the area's most advanced fitting tools and equipment. We are certified to fit you properly and will never use a bike trainer in this process, because that's just not how it's done correctly.
1- Body Scanning Laser Fitting $70*
Bike fitting can be one of the most important aspects in choosing your bicycle or perfecting your fit on your existing bicycle. Bicycles come in many varying geometries that can affect your overall comfort, pedaling efficiency, and performance capabilities. Needless to say the correct fit is very important and should be the highest priority when selecting you new bicycle.
Many conventional fitting methods rely on personal experience and opinion along with the potential for inaccurate measurements. The Body Scanning CRM uses modern technologies to ensure precision resulting in a vastly more accurate fit for the rider based on exact measurements.
*Body Scanning is included FREE with new road bike purchase. If you choose to pay for this service and buy your road bike from us within 30 days, we will refund the fitting fee on the bike invoice.
Lasers? How does that work?
The Body Scanning CRM (photo) is not a prop from a recent episode of Star Trek. Rather, it's a quick, easy way to guarantee a comfortable, ergonomic fit for your bicycle.
All you need to do is relax and enjoy the experience! We'll have you stand in the Body Scanning Module (photo), place your head against the wall and then we'll use the Body Scanner to take your measurements. This is done with a completely harmless mild laser light that takes the five all-important measurements.
The Laser Measures:
|Body Scan Laser Measurements
2. Shoulder Width
3. Shoulder Height
4. Arm Length
5. Hip Height
You're Ready To Ride!
|After taking the measurements, your consultant will ask you several brief questions to determine the type of riding you intend to do. Then, we enter your measurements and riding info into the Body Scanning CRM software.
This program provides accurate, detailed feedback on each cycling measurement and recommendation. Then our Body Scan's Bicycle Adjustment Tool transfers computed measurements directly to your bicycle.
The result is a whole new ride. Enjoy the comfort and be sure to take it easy on your friends as you dole out newfound power!
We're excited to be able to provide this space-age ultra-precise measurement system. If you have questions about Body Scanning CRM or any other aspect of cycling or bicycle fitting please don't hesitate to ask!
