Doing a Mountain Bike Fitting In helping customers find the right frame size most shops that sell bikes do a good job. By taking a peek at the manufacturer’s website or catalogue one can usually double check it. Usually there is range for every frame size. There are no specific body measurements though but one can fit the bike to their liking. To get the perfect fit therefore is up to the person who owns the bike. A good idea of what fits them one can get by sitting on the bike with someone holding on to them. Some bike shops offer fitting s at a cost but one can do it for themselves too. What one needs to know before they spend on a bikes fitting are the things that need to be changed on the bike. Paramount is getting the right frame size. To get the right size one can use a sizing chart and it is advised that one tests it before purchasing the bike. The right size is comfortable and it should not be too high to make someone feel over stretched or too low such that one feels cramped. When they dismount it should allow someone to place the feet flat on the ground. On changing the handlebar width one should focus. The handlebar width can be determined by the specific body type of the rider. Allowing more steering torque and slow steering down are the benefits that a wider bar have. It also makes it easier to breathe since it encourages one to open up their chest wider when huffing up a hill. Especially by riders with a disproportionate leg to torso size, the stem length can be changed too. At times one should consider shortening the stem as this moves the rider towards the centre and adds a curvature to the back which leads to a more upright ride. Once one has the right frame size they should set the seat post and setback. If a person cannot adjust the seat far enough what they may need to do is to change the seat post offset. The handlebar height is the other thing that one should try fitting and make sure that they are not too high or too low. This helps by getting a comfortable back angle and a natural feel to look ahead without craning the neck. The crank arm length too one can also consider changing. One should consider the points at which the body comes into contact with the bike. Being the first, the handlebars then the saddle and pedals. One should make sure that these three places are comfortable. When holding on to the handlebars they should not have friction.A 10-Point Plan for Options (Without Being Overwhelmed)
