Guru Fit - $375       Road, Tri/TT, Cross, MTB, Track

Guru Fit Experience - $375

The best Fit Specialists and best fit tools combined for the ultimate bike fit! Road, Tri, or Cross, this fit starts with a video scan of the rider to pinpoint all joints and body landmarks, and then we use laser alignment to check foot, knee, and hip alignment. We utilize the most cutting-edge fit bike available to find you the perfect fit based on your feedback and preferences. The Guru GFU can adjust saddle height, fore/aft, and cockpit height and reach all while pedaling. The dynamic fit process is a detail-driven approach to bike fit - one that involves making individual adjustments to your riding position while you pedal on a fit bike. This process ensures that each nuanced change made to your riding position can be accurately analyzed by the fitter and confirmed by the rider being fit. Additionally, dynamic fit allows you to create the optimal riding position for your needs instead of manipulating your fit to meet a particular bike's parameters.

Whether you are a Triathlete, Road racer, or just looking to be as comfortable and efficient on your bike as possible, The Guru Fit will optimize your current, new, or future ride. We'll recommend the perfect bike for you based on your fit results or set your current bike up as close as possible to your ideal fit.*

Purchase a bike from Ride Brooklyn for over $2500, and we will contribute 50% of the cost of your fit ($187.50) towards your bike purchase.

*Labor included for basic stem and saddle swapping, any additional labor will be charged at market rate.

**In efforts to observe social distancing, this fit can be done contactless.**
