At FITT 1ST we are passionate about the sport of cycling and believe that in order to enjoy this wonderful sport to its fullest, you need to be comfortable above all else. Whether you are a weekly commuter, a dedicated charity rider, serious recreational club rider, elite or professional athlete, road or mountain, it all starts with finding the best position possible for you. Once you are comfortable, then and only then can performance be optimized.We believe that a person’s bicycle when fitted correctly should feel like an extension of their own body, the perfect union between Rider and Machine. You should feel comfortable, safe, balanced, strong and always in control.

"Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I’ll remember. Involve me and I’ll understand”


We at FITT 1ST want you to understand your bike fit, that's why we take the extra time to actively involve you in all aspects of the procedure. This way we establish quality communication and feedback.

Our fitting process was developed by the leaders and pioneers in this industry, taught at the SICI Institute to the TOP FITTERS IN THE WORLD. Although our system uses well established scientific criteria as its base we add a very “Rider Centric “ component to our fit procedure by establishing a thorough personalized profile of the rider themselves.

There are no “quick fixes” if a bike fit is done correctly, and that is why our fits are very comprehensive.

Whether you are a pro athlete or a daily commuter, the process remains the same and is equally important for all.

By the time your fit is complete you should not only feel totally satisfied with your new position, you will also have a much greater knowledge and better understanding of how your body and your bicycle work together. You and the bicycle become one. This is how the cycling experience is maximized.

Full FITT Procedure

Step 1: Interview

The fit begins with an extensive interview to establish a personal blueprint of the uniqueness you bring to the bike.

We will gather information about your life off the bike that relates directly to your comfort, efficiency and power on the bike. Lifestyle, fitness level, riding experience, prior injuries, surgeries and current physical concerns all play an important role in determining your ideal position.

Step 2: Foot Assessment

This is a very important aspect of the bike fit and absolutely essential for any rider who uses a clipped in pedal system. The interface between the foot, shoe, cleat and pedal is where it all begins. This is where all your power and efficiency originates.

This is also the source for the majority of foot, knee, hip and sometimes lower back issues that we encounter. Foot size and shape, degree of pronation, arch type, length and height, forefoot and posterior foot varus and valgas and metatarsal support are all evaluated here.

Step 3: Flexibility and Postural Assessment

Everyone has a unique body structure, determined by genetics, how we live our lives, and even what we do for a living. A person who sits in front of a computer all day will have a much different range of motion and flexibility than the fitness trainer, even if they were born identical twins. Chances are they would not be comfortable in the same position on the bike as well. Postural alignment, leg length differences, pelvic asymmetries, spinal flexibility, hamstring flexibility, and hip flexion range of motion, IT bands and internal hip flexors will all be assessed.

Step 4: On Bike Assessment

Everything we do on the bike is to ensure that the bike fits you. It makes more sense to change a stem, saddle position or handle bar position than to force one's body into a position that is unnatural. This process will result in a position that accommodates all of your natural bio-mechanics, removing excess pressure on all your joints.

Foot stability, cleat alignment, ankling pattern, knee tracking, pelvic angle, upper body alignment, arm and hand positions will all be optimized to ensure that you will be riding safely and comfortably for your current skill and fitness level. We will be asking for your feedback continually through this phase.

Step 5: Evaluation and Recommendations

We will do our best to adapt your existing equipment to you. However there may be changes that we will recommend to you. A new handlebar with shallower reach and drop to accommodate your arm and hand position, a different saddle that fits your body and riding style better or something as small as adding a wedge to one of your cleats. Any one of these small changes can make a world of difference in your ability to enjoy, perform well and ride safely on the bike.

If your bike is just the wrong size and or geometry for you, we will tell you so, and give you advice on what manufacturers makes, models and size would be a much better fit for you and your style of riding.

All of your data will be recorded, so that you will have a permanent record of all the key bike measurements.

WattsUp solidifies Partnership with FITT 1ST

WattsUp is proud to partner with FITT 1ST.

FITT 1ST has been servicing our athletes' bike fitting needs since 2010, with tremendous success. Over 80% of fitted athletes highly recommend FITT 1ST's services, and 0% have expressed being disappointed with their fitting experience.

We firmly believe that to perform well and remain healthy in cycling, you must be riding in a proper set up on your bike. Cycling is such a repetitious sport, that a slightly improper bike fit will undoubtedly lead to problems. We recommend all of our athletes get fit by FITT 1ST on their current bike/s. And if/when shopping for a new bike, to consult FITT 1ST about which type and size frame to purchase.

That is, we recommend our athletes shop for bikes by fit, as opposed to by brand or by popular consensus.

The RACING season is starting to wrap up in this part of Canada, and over the next several weeks we would like to recognize some of the accomplishments of the athletes that have trusted FITT 1ST to be their fitting partner.

Meet Meg Thorburn

I’m recently home from the 2011 World Duathlon Championships in Gijon, Spain. Team Canada had about 55 members, most (including myself) in the International Distance Age Group races.

The weather was perfect, with lots of enthusiastic spectators. The runs (10km at the start and 5 km at the end) consisted of 2.5 loops, starting and ending in the stadium where the transition area was located. Other than one nasty cobblestone section, it was a fast flat run.

The very fun bike course (two 19.2 km laps) was, on the other hand was quite hilly - a flat start, then a 5 km climb and a 5 km descent, before ending on a flat stretch along the ocean promenade.

I did much better in this event than I expected and had a blast! I came out of the 1st run in 5th place (out of 22 in my AG) and held that position on my bike. I came off the bike feeling great and passed a woman in my AG 1 km from the end (gaining a full minute on her) to finish 4th in my AG.

I saw Scott a few weeks before the race, because I had been having major problems with foot pain while riding in duathlons.

Scott performed a full foot assessment on me and set me up with E-soles and wedges, which have really helped to alleviate the pain (and transfer more power to the pedals).

He also tweaked a few other things in my fit and pointed out a few problems in my riding style and posture.

Two days after I saw Scott, I posted my fastest ever bike split. But most remarkable, I think, was my 5 km run at the Worlds. I had a solid bike split, then came off to run a PB on my 5k - not something one expects in a duathlon, as it is usually so hard to recover from the bike.

However I felt so good during and after my bike leg that I ran stronger!


A big CONGRATULATIONS again to Meg for her excellent finish at Worlds this year
