Fitting Services

Durham Cycles has fit local pros and national champions, but we believe that every cyclist can and should benefit from a great bicycle fit. Our proprietary “Fit First” system is designed to improve comfort, reduce injury, and maximize efficiency on your current or new bicycle.

Please note, each rider has different needs which may not be addressed by the packages below. Fittings are billed at an hourly rate and the prices below reflect average charges for representative services.

Fundamental Fit: $225
Diagnostic fit designed to maximize comfort and efficiency while reducing the likelihood of repetitive stress injury. This is our most popular fit. It is suitable both for experienced riders looking to identify and address trouble spots and for new riders looking to learn cycling dynamics and get started with a safe and fast position.

Stock Geo Fit: $280
Comprehensive fit to help riders identify the best available stock geometry from any manufacturer. $200 of the cost of a comprehensive fit can be put towards any performance bike purchased from Durham Cycles within six months of your session.

Custom Bike Fit: $400
We will work in consultation with Seven Cycles or the custom frame builder of your choice to build the bike of your dreams. All custom bikes are designed and tested on our Serotta Fit Cycle.

Progressive Fit: $275+up
For athletes who need to make significant changes based on their Fundamental Fit, the Progressive Fit includes an “action plan” for implementing alterations slowly, allowing the rider to acclimate to the recommended position. The Progressive Fit begins with our fundamental fit and is typically followed by 2 to 4 sessions at a discounted rate.

Power Curve Fit: $345
Mapping power against heart-rate over multiple rider positions, we determine the individual’s most efficient hip angle. Power mapping is the only empirical way for riders to determine their most aggressive, sustainable position. This fit requires hard, sustained efforts and is only recommended for those well into their fitness cycle.
