A bike fitting is the art and science of successfully joining a rider and a bicycle to achieve a comfortable, efficient, powerful, and safe union of human and machine.
Frankly, we want you to enjoy cycling as much as you possibly can. Many Cyclists have fallen head over heals in love with our sport without the benefit of properly fitted equipment or instruction we find common in other sports like golf, tennis, and skiing. Cycling involves a unique interaction of rider and equipment; the bike should feel like an extension of our body. Because cycling is a learned skill, we may not always choose the best position, just like we might not naturally grip a golf club properly, or carve a ski turn without being taught how to do it. Coach Luke has the equipment and the training to help you get started the right way, or to improve upon your current fit.
All you’ll need to bring to your fitting is your bike, shoes, orthotics, favourite bike shorts, H2O bottle, & Jersey. Bring your helmet, glasses and gloves just in case we have any questions about them.
All fitting are by appointment only

The Master Bike Fit combines all the best aspect of the 4 distinct fit schools and 18+ years experience that Luke has under his belt. This is a no-stone-unturned approach that covers everything needed to optimize every aspect of the interaction between bike and rider. The process: 1. Pre-Fit Interview; In depth interview: goals, past injuries, chronic problems and your expectations of your bike and how it fits. Assess your bio-mechanical strengths / weaknesses. Assess your foot mechanics and start the process of setting up your foot pedal interface. 2. On bike assessment; We will cover everything: bottom to top, back to front about your bike fit. We will tune your center of gravity. Hand placement and ergonomics. We will analyze and correct your cleat alignment with your bio-mechanics. All aspects utilize high quality video analysis tools. 3. Fit report and quality check; After your on-bike assessment and adjustments are all made, your bike will be measured and logged in your fit file for future reference if needed. Your bike will then be taken to a certified mechanic to be quality checked. All the bolts that were adjusted during the bike fit process will be torqued to the proper specs. We like to offer this as a value-add and to ensure the maximal level of service and safety.
