Sarai from Girl Bike Love and Chris from Pro Peloton put on a great learning event on Thursday. The theme of the evening was getting the most fun, efficiency and enjoyment out of your bike. And one of the ways you can work towards that goal is to get a bike fit BEFORE you buy the bike. Yes, you might see the total dream bike: right colors, sweet design, and after a quick cruise round the block decide this is IT. But before you plunk down the coin right there and ride home, take a moment. This an opportunity for you to dial in the little measurements: seat height, brake position, handle bar width that can turn your dream ride into a lifelong affair.
I, of course, have never actually done in that order: bike fit then bike purchase. But after hearing Chris talk, plus his obvious passion for helping people, I know that next time I’m plunking down a wad cash, I’m going to hunker into a bit fit approach to make the most of my investment.
