Certified & Experienced

My racing and personal history of injury has been a significant inspiration for learning and staying up to date with the best fitting techniques for my clients, having a comprehensive understanding of biomechanics and movement on and off the bike. I've witnessed profound effects on power, endurance, and the long-term health of my clients.

It's for Everyone

It is often overlooked by new riders and not done frequently enough by experienced athletes.

For the new rider, an initial fit can mitigate repetitive stress injury risks and sore points as the body adjusts to both new movements and static holds. Muscle soreness is positive adaptation that can be managed and recovered from for growth. Acute pain will not only have a negative impact on your health and goals but also take the joy out of riding your bike. 

Too often do I see experiance riders that all of a sudden developed a problem, strain, injury that took them off the bike for weeks or months. They didn’t all of a sudden have this problem, over time major muscle development imbalances occurred, bodies great ability to compensate for some people it takes years before they are in serious pain, others sometimes months after something as seemingly harmless as changing a pair of shoes, saddle, new bike.

Pricing and Service

Road, Tri, Gravel, MTB, Track Bike Fitting 325$

Including Shimano Custom Fit Insoles

I use a Purely Custom fit bike in all my fittings, Purely Custom Platform and over 25k invested in tooling. That is just a drop in the bucket in comparison to the investment into knowledge and experiance. Combined this is making for a premier, detailed experiance and high quality service. The process of a full fitting takes between 2.5-3.5 hrs. This is for the new bike, old bike, or looking for a bike that will fit you like a glove. I take a comprehensive dive into the pedal, cleat, insole interface. looking for instability, posterior, anterior, medial or lateral muscle dominance, also determining leg length differences and creating solutions. Looking for the most ideal contact with the foot and shoe even before you get on the fit bike. Anyone with current custom insoles or the proper insole to support their foot, the fitting cost is 275$ for full fitting.

There could be an additional cost of shims, wedges, and lift. These costs are pretty minor. The most expensive I have seen the additions be is 60$ per set of shoes. The average cost is around 20$.

Followed up with the most comprehensive bike fitting follow up, expectations via email by any bike fitter. I check in a few times post fitting to see how the adaptation process is going. Future set ups of cleats, shoes, new saddles, new bikes, issues come at a major discount.

Cleat, Foot Interface Fitting 170$ Including Shimano Custom Fit Insoles

This being as important as the foundation to a solid home. MedBridge biomechanics certified, education from Bike Fit Systems, and utilizing solutions from Bike Fit Systems and super high quality cycling specific insoles. Regardless if old or new shoes I take a comprehensive, deep dive into looking at pedal, cleat, insole contact looking for instability, posterior, anterior, lateral or medial muscle dominance, leg length difference. Looking for the most ideal contact with the foot and shoe even before you get on the bike. There could be an additional cost of shims, wedges, and lift. These costs are pretty minor. The most expensive I have seen the additions be is 60$ per set of shoes. The average cost is probably 20$. With Out Insoles 100$ for Cleat Fitting

Custom Fit Insoles + Molding 75$

One pair of Shimano Custom Fit Insoles, and molding process. The total process takes 20 minutes.

Saddle Testing 75$

Figuring out what saddle is ideal can be a super tough thing to determine on your own, and expensive!! With the PurelyCustom fit machine I can set up the fit bike to your exact, current fit measurements and we can test and evaluate what saddle is ideal for you, referencing your previous saddle in seconds. A large selection of saddles to choose from FIZIK, ISM, PRO, ADAMO, SPECIALIZED, SELLLE ITALIA, PRO LOGO, SELLE SMP with continuing to grow this selection. You bring your current bike and saddle so I can utilize the measurements and your current saddle for the baseline. Some saddles might be able to be utilized for short term demo’s at a cost.

I had been experiencing a lot of back pain prior to visiting Ashley. I had never been fit before so I wasn’t sure what to expect going in. Ashley walked me through everything and explained all the steps he was taking. He made the 3 hours fly by. After visiting my back pain has gone away and I’ve seen improvement in my riding. Thanks for such an awesome experience!

What tools and technology do you use?

These are a few of the tools I use. Each are used for their specific area of feedback or adjustment so I can create a complete picture of your fit.

Purely Custom Fit Bike Pro 1
From the manufacturer: "The Fit Bike Pro 1 has resulted in the closest experience to a true ride by integrating technology from PowerBahn. Our load control unit electronically samples and controls load up to 1000 times a second allowing for accurate readings and corrections while the rider is in motion and under cycling conditions."

Systems for hip, knee, ankle and foot problems include:

FFMD tooling
The Forefoot Measuring Device (FFMD) is placed on the bottom of the foot to help gauge forefoot tilt and determine the number and angle of Cleat Wedges and/or ITS Wedges needed to accommodate the cyclist's varus or valgus feet. 

Shimano Custom Fit Insoles

Shimano RC9 S-PHYRE Road, Wide Shoe Line IN STOCK

BikeFit Systems Hardware
A foot pedal interface

Varus and Valgus Wedging
Internal or external wedges that tilt the foot in small increments or help with leg length discrepancy. 

Lazer tracking and key point joint tracking 

Goniometer
Accurate measurement of leg, hip, back, and arm angles.
