Why choose our bike fitting

Providing Optimal Bike Fitting and Position Solutions

"If I had to summarize it in a single word, I would probably use 'AMAZING.'  Truly, I couldn't be happier. The bike feels like a new ride. Totally different on the road.  Per your post-fit instructions, I did a few shorter rides to adapt my body to the new position, then went on a longer ride over the weekend. During these rides, I felt like I could really push myself and grow in strength.   I 'thought' I was comfortable on the bike but until I did your Retül fit, I didn't really know what comfort was." -Steve B (Sacramento, CA.)

Thank you for considering AthletiCamps as your bike fitting resource. Realizing there are many fitting options available to you these days, we believe that you will find our bike fitting knowledge, technology and approach the best in the business.  Our fittings are more than just another fitting, we provide position solutions.  We believe and strive for bike fitting that is a "relationship" and not a one-and-done service.

All our professional fits...

  • Begin with an interview about your cycling history, goals, and potential issues related to achieving an optimal fit

    After every fit, we take the time to review specific strength and flexibility options with you personally, so you leave the fit knowing exactly what you have to do to achieve more balanced structural fitness.  The majority of athletes that visit us need to work on issues off-the-bike which are potential issues on the bike.
  • Include a pre-fit biomechanical assessment to determine flexibility and core strength and how they relate to the fitting process

    Developed by a physical therapist, we perform a pre-fit cycling specific biomechanical analysis on every rider. The purpose is to understand any physical issues the athlete is having, plus the option to create an individualized home program plan for specific off-the-bike work that needs to be performed. 

  • Include a pre-fit foot analysis and include a detailed report as part of your fit

    Your feet are the foundation for your entire body.  When this foundation is misaligned or functioning poorly the effects can be felt throughout the body. Over 75% of the population suffers from overpronation or excessive supination, yet most of us are unaware of our own foot type and how it affects our bodies.  Our technology and experience gives us the ability to diagnose issues and custom craft a product in just minutes that will address comfort, power and efficiency issues allowing for a more relaxed and powerful foot that improves structural alignment in any shoe, across any sport and meets the demands of any lifestyle.  You can then choose to purchase fully customized inserts as part of your fitting.

  • Review specific exercises needed off-the-bike to help you achieve stability and flexibility while on the bike

    After every fit, we take the time to review specific strength and flexibility options with you personally, so you leave the fit knowing exactly what you have to do to achieve more balanced structural fitness.  The majority of athletes that visit us need to work on issues off-the-bike which are potential issues on the bike.
  • Utilize state-of-the art Retül technology for ALL fits

    All fits use 3D motion analysis to guide the fitting process.  Old school plumb-bobs and goniometers are replaced with new school motion-capture technology.
 Measuring your fit while you are pedaling your bike is far more accurate than older methods that try to determine your fit while you are in a fixed position (static fit.)

  • Take measurements on every bike with Retül's Zin tool before and after your fit

    Utilizing the Zin measuring tool, we are able to take detailed measurements on your bike with millimeter accuracy.  This is useful to see final changes made on the bike as a result of the fit process, plus give a detailed record of your final setup for future reference and  potential bike changes (saddles, bars, etc.)

  • Create and deliver a seven page detailed report through email within 24 hours, plus all data and reports are kept on our system for future reference

    Within 24 hours, we will email you a detailed fit report that contains notes taken pre, during, and post-fit, before-and-after measurements of the bike, before-and-after data captures of you in motion and before-and-after pictures.  No other bike fitting system in the world delivers so much useful information.

  • Every athlete is treated the same, no matter what, taking advantage of our technology and fitting knowledge.

    It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a pro tour rider, being setup correctly on your bike is a must and using the best tools is vital.  After all, would you see a cardiologist that examines your heart with a stethoscope or one that uses an echocardiogram machine?  The same advanced processes are performed on every athlete that walks though our training center door.

  • Explain why we are making specific adjustments and how they have the ability to improve your performance and economy

    Why we make fit changes is important for you to understand.  We take the time to explain all changes and why
 they are done.

  • Have a variety of replacement parts and brands to choose the best components that compliment your fit

    At AthletiCamps, we have a variety of part options, plus different bike selections where we can choose the best equipment for you and your needs.  We are not focused on one brand.

  • Our fitting approach is not directed by a company trying to sell their products

    We are independent and take an objective view of your bike fitting needs.  Keeping a budget in mind, we suggest the best components for you to achieve an optimal fit.

  • Saddles are the most personal component of your bike fit and we have a saddle libray demo program that helps you determine the best saddle for you

    We understand that your saddle is probably the most important part of your bike being fit properly.  That is why we take time, if needed, during every fit to understand your body and riding style and help you find a saddle that gives you long-lasting comfort and performance.

  • All bike changes that are more intensive are given the highest priority at our partner's bike shop - Folsom bike

    We have an outstanding long-term relationship with Folsom Bike, which gives our clients prority on any changes we cannot do at our training center.  For example, if you need new cabling installed, Folsom Bike will give you priority in getting those changes done.

  • Performance and an objective view is our goal

    We are a state-of-the-art performance training center where we take a complete approach to the athlete, including coaching, performance testing, and structural health.  We are professional, and we are there during all normal business hours to help you acheive your goal. You will always be able to access your fitter or coach and ask specific questions.

  • Time sensitive

    We realize your time is valuable in this day and age.  We have an appointment based system where we stay on time and deliver your services in the correct estimated amount of time so you can plan your visit accordingly.  Our training studio has a relaxed yet professional feel where you can be assured that you are receiving the attention you deserve.
