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.

"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.

Just have to share a small story with you all.

When I was 14,  I had already been working for 2 years and saving my pennies.

One day I walked in to a bike shop in my neighborhood and my eyes fell on a brand new French racing bike. Nothing like anything I had ever seen before.  In my mind this was my " Red Rider BB gun " and I had to have it.

It took all the money I had plus a small $$ contribution from my father and it was mine.

I rode it tirelessly for the next 4 years until my 2nd year in University when it was taken from me.

I never forgot this bike and I have been looking for another one for the last 35 years and was never able to find one until 2 weeks ago. .

I bought it from a fellow in San Antonio Texas and it is exactly the same year and colour as mine was, with all the same components. What are the chances of that, and it is in really good condition to boot.

Unfortunately he would not ship it to Canada, so I had it shipped to a UPS store in Lewiston NY and I went and picked it up 2 days ago

Just shows you that never giving up pays off.  I had to pay 3X what I originally paid for the bike in 1969, but it is well worth it.  To be honest with you, it's priceless to me

Here is a picture

About to move inside for Winter Training. What should you do??

Outdoor riding season was cut a little short this year in our neck of the woods this year. Already over 25 cm's of snow has fallen and its only the first week in December.

Fear not some excellent indoor training can set you up well for next season's goals and now is the BEST TIME of the year to have a bike fit done.

Why you ask?

You are about to put 4 - 5 good month's of indoor training in.  Don't you want to make sure that all the muscle memory you are going to build is in the best position possible?

A lot of people ask me why riding indoors seems to be a lot more uncomfortable than riding on the road.

Here's why...

Riding outside is a much more DYNAMIC experience, your body is constantly moving around adjusting to the wind, the other riders around you and the conditions of the weather road itself.

Riding indoors is a much more STATIC experience, mostly staying seated all the time, never getting to coast, no recovery downhill sections etc. As a result your body doesn't experience as much variation in its position so your muscles get fatigued more quickly and you may get some aches and pains that do not happen out on the road

Being in a static position periods of time will bring out all the flaws in your pedal stroke that you not feel outdoors and riding on a constant flat for long periods on time doesn't help the nether regions either

Here's a HINT

Most of us train with our bike in a position which mimics a flat road, which means that the distance from the ground up to your rear skewer centre is the same as the distance from the ground up to your front skewer.

Try lifting up the front wheel so that it is about an inch higher than the back wheel.  This will mimic riding on a 2 percent grade.

What this will do for you is shift your weight back a bit and give you what we like to call in the industry " a better seat ". That will take a little pressure off the crotch and allow you to train longer and harder with more comfort.

If you get bored, try riding outside in the winter on a warmer dry day.

Although you can build muscles indoors, you build character outdoors
