Most bicycles are made in frame sizes , provided you have approximately the right size , the bicycle can be tailored ( adjusted ) to fit your body .
In an Observational Fit , we put your bicycle in an indoor trainer make sure it is level, then using the landmarks on the body, position the bicycle so you are supported correctly according to your body's flexibility and shape , this is accomplished by setting the seat height , the fore and aft and positioning the handlebars so you are supported comfortably. this is documented in a fit program called Pure Position and the X/Y measurements are emailed to you .
A saddle that hurts takes all the fun out of riding a bike, every pelvic structure is unique , on the bicycle it is a major contact point so it is best to have a good match .
Saddle Pressure Analysis technology (P.A.T) is a very powerful tool that allows us to see what is happening between the riders pelvic structure and the saddle while riding , it has radically changed the way saddle manufacturers are designing saddles .
when we use Saddle P.A.T , it provides a lot a data to work with , this information makes finding a correct saddle shape much easier, having the right shape of saddle affects the fit on the bicycle , the fit on the bicycle also affects weight distribution on the saddle , so bicycle fit and saddle fit affect each other, this is why it is best to work with both bike fit and saddle fit together,
