What is a Bike Fit?

Bike fit is the process of adjusting a bicycle to properly match a rider’s body dimensions, flexibility, and riding style. This helps improve comfort, efficiency, and performance while reducing the risk of injuries.

Ride Comfortably, Ride Fast!

Bike fit in Paris, France. Fitting your bike to your unique biomechanics is a very important step in your cycling journey! Above all, having a perfectly fitting bike helps you achieve your best performance. The more comfortable you are on your bike, the faster you will go! And you’ll go farther and you’ll recover in less time.

No sport should ever hurt! If it hurts, it’s not good! Once you eliminate unnecessary pain due to bad positioning on your bicycle, you will be able to further push your limits! So that the suffering you go through is the result of constructive stress and not unnecessary pain!

And last but not least, a good bike fit adds to your power. The better you are positioned on your bike, the more you take advantage of mechanical leverage with the power that your body generates! It’s as simple as that!

We offer our comprehensive bike fit in Paris at your location or in our studio. Our bike fit is a long-term continuous process.

  • Advice on Choosing the Right Size of Your Desired Bike
    • Each bicycle manufacturer has a sizing chart for each one of their models in detail. We help you to choose the perfect size of your bike that above all, fits your body and style of riding.
  • Precision Bike fit
    • Following meticulous visual observation and gradual dynamic adjustments of all movable and adjustable parts of your bike, we try our best to achieve the highest level of ride comfort.
  • Saddle Service
    • We position your actual saddle as well as possible, to begin with. After that, if your discomfort persists we will have you try different saddles until we find the saddle that suits you the best!
  • Cleat Adjustment
    • At last, we will take care of your cleat position. So you have the smoothest pedal stroke and we eliminate all pain and discomfort in your feet, ankles, and knees. You’ll be surprised how big a difference very subtle changes in cleat position make in the ease and fluidity of your pedaling.

To emphasize once more, at Basicycle, we consider the bike fit a continuous process. As soon as we find the initial comfort point, we will continue our efforts to improve your comfort on your bike which should naturally be getting easier and easier with your improved levels of fitness and flexibility.

In case you have more than one bike for different types of riding (Road Bike, Gravel Bike, or Time Trial / Triathlon Bike) we can further help you with having a streamlined geometry among all your bikes so you are always comfortable.
