Advanced Fit Technology
Most bike fit specialists fit riders in a static position. Traditional tools of the trade - tape measures and plumb bobs - don’t allow accurate measurements while the rider is pedaling. The Bike Barn Custom Fit Studio exclusively focuses on Dynamic Fit, where all of the analysis is done while riding. By incorporating the latest in fit technology and dedicated fit experts, the studio is able to provide every cyclist the most accurate assessment of their bike position while riding. The Custom Fit Studio utilizes state-of-the-art technology system to analyze fit and provide data to our clients. This combination of equipment and expertise provides an enhanced fit experience that you can take from bike to bike.
Retül - 3D Motion Capture
Retül Fit is more than just a bike fit—it’s a way to learn about your body, the root cause of your aches and pains, and how a proper fit will help you achieve your cycling goals.
Using 3D motion capture technology, the Retül system accurately measures every degree of movement and millimeter of distance, providing you and the fitter with data to support the choices made during the fit for your cycling equipment and personal riding experience.
Starting with a pre-fit physical assessment, your fitter will take into account your body’s limitations, previous injuries and pains, and your goals on the bike.
From there, the fitter will have you get on the bike (either your existing bike or fit bike) to place LED markers on 8 anatomical points of your body which will be tracked by the Retül Vantage Motion Capture system. The Retül Vantage system is used to collect real-time, three-dimensional data from each pedal stroke creating a dynamic fit experience.
The real-time data is compiled into the Retül fit software so that the fitter can look at the numbers and dial you into your perfect riding position.
Once you and your fitter have dialed in your final bike position, the fitter will create a digital map of your final bike set up using the Retül Zin tool. The bike data and Zin tool measurements are generated into a complete fit report that you can reference at any time after the fit.
