BIKE FITTING SERVICES
We fit everyone and every bike!
Let Us Measure Your Current Bike
While we cannot offer our traditional fitting services at this time we still want to help people find and ride a well fitting bike when possible. For those of you who currently have a road bike that fits but you are looking for an upgrade, we can use the Retül Zin bike measurement tool to measure your current bike. This will allow us to set up any bike to match your current fit. We charge $100 for this service which includes measuring your bike, emailing you your fit numbers and setting up your new bike. If you buy a bike from us this fee is waived! If you are interested in taking advantage of this service please call our Belmont store (617-489-3577) and ask for Jack or Michael. You can also email us email@example.com and we will pass along your email to one of the fitters.
Pricing does not include cost of parts, if necessary.
WE BELIEVE IN BIKES THAT FIT
More specifically, we believe in a scientific approach to bike fitting that is tailored to each rider, helping you to be more comfortable, efficient, and powerful on any bike. We’ve partnered with companies like Retül to give you access to the most accurate and precise measurement tools available. However, we don't expect these tools alone to do the job. Instead, we rely on the experience of our fitters to help our clients find a new bike or improve their position on their current bike.
Fit package pricing does not include cost of replacement parts, if necessary.
Please call for same day booking, we may be able to accommodate you.

MEET THE WHEELWORKS FITTERS
Ed started the fitting department in 1986 alongside former owner and three-time Olympian John Allis. While Ed has been certified over the years by a number of fitting schools and systems, naming those wouldn’t do his knowledge justice. He is the go-to fitter for anything road, hybrid and tandem-related, and while he can fit any rider, his specialty is helping riders with pre-existing injuries or anatomical oddities to enjoy riding again. If you are someone who has had a knee replacement, fused vertebrae, leg length discrepancy, nerve damage, you name it, Ed is your guy. He describes his favorite bike as the one closest to the door with air in the tires, and his most familiar place to ride is the state of being lost.
Jack is our triathlon expert and dedicated Retül fitter. He’s certified in Serotta, Specialized Body Geometry, SlowTwitch F.I.S.T, and Retül fitting protocols. All together, that puts the most technologically advanced bike fitting and product matching technology in the industry right at his fingertips. His goal is to use data to increase your comfort, prevent injuries, and improve your performance. Jack is an experienced triathlete and the staff member most likely to have gone swimming that morning. His favorite bike is his Serotta Coeur d’Acier, and his favorite event is the Lake Placid Ironman.
Michael is a lifelong cyclist. Not only is he a certified bike fitter, but he also has experience in the snow sport world via bike fitting and custom insole fabrication. He has completed certifications in the Serotta and Specialized fit schools. When it comes to bicycles, Michael does it all. Not only is he a lifelong commuter, he also rides road and off-road bikes regularly. As a fitter and salesperson, Michael will fit any bike we sell and can be your go-to salesperson for anything you want to find at Wheelworks.
