Why Choosing The Right Bike Is Choosing The Right Bike Fit
Choosing the right bike amongst the endless options today is harder than it ever has been before. It is not uncommon to find a cyclist who is in the market for a new bicycle and makes a decision on a bike based on several secondary factors. Things like getting a fantastic deal, the good “looks” of the bike or simply because a friend believes that one particular bike is the “be all, end all.” What is often overlooked however is that that the most crucial attribute is fit!
At the end of the day, the bike fit can never be replaced or outweighed by any other factor in your decision-making process. If that is not in place, the novelty of everything else will eventually wear off, and you could find yourself in a frustrating, uncomfortable and possibly costly predicament, both for your health as well as your wallet.
Bike Fit dictates so much. It represents the positioning of contact points on the bike, and this will affect comfort level, range of motion, and ultimately performance on the bike.
