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 injuries 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 300$
I have and use Purely Custom fit bike in all my fittings, Purely Custom Platform, over 20k invested in tooling. That is just a drop in the bucket in comparison to the investment into knowledge and experiance. Combined making for a premier, detailed experiance and high quality service. The process takes between 2-3 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, deep dive into looking at pedal, cleat, insole interface. looking for instability, posterior or anterior muscle dominance, ideal contact with the foot and shoe even before you get on the fit 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 around 20$.
Followed up with the most comprehensive bike fitting follow up, expectations via email by any bike fitter. I check in a few times post fitting to see how the adaptation process is going. Future set ups of cleats, shoes, new saddles, new bikes, issues come at a major discount.
Cleat, Foot Interface Fitting 100$
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 or anterior muscle dominance, 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$.
Saddle Testing 75$
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, SELLE SAN MARCO, 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.

What fitting certifications do you have?
Fit Institute Slow Twitch
MedBridge Certification for Cycling Biomechanics/Foot-Pedal interface
Each certification represents a significant investment in learning and applying fitting principles. I am determined to stay current and be ready for any goal a client has, whether it's pain related or achieving better biomechanics for a TT race.
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:
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.
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
Accurate measurement of leg, hip, back, and arm angles.
