Does This Bike Fit My ...

No matter how far or how fast you plan on riding your new bike--to get a good ride--you need a good fit. A good fit will stand out among purchasing points.

"If you choose a bike based on 10 test rides, you're likely choosing a bike based on the fit of each bike during the test ride," says J.T. Lyons, a F.I.S.T. instructor and bike fitter at Moment Cycle Sport in San Diego. Lyons spoke about bike fit and more at a breakout session during GOTRIbal's 2010 Conference and Retreat in San Diego.

I wrote about Lyons' session and a second DFU demonstration I attended at SBR Coaching in Verona, Wis. DFU Engineer and Creator Mathieu Fagnan was on site at SBR answering technical questions about the DFU's development and purpose.
