Bike Fitting

Proper bike fit is essential for a comfortable and productive ride. Despite any marketing hype you may have heard there is NO generic method to fit a rider to a bike – trust me I have tried all the software, tools and gadgets on the market! Every bike is different as it must not only be specific for body configuration and flexibility but also for personal preferences and riding style. I specialize in the efficient bike fittings for all levels of riders and offer the following service;

1st session (approximately 1 hour)

Fit you comfortably within the envelope of a regular bike fit to suit your body parameters, pedaling technique and riding ability. This is done on your existing bike in your riding gear on a stationary trainer. If it is necessary I will recommend bike sizing, components, and configuration changes.

2nd session (approximately 30-60 minutes)

Existing Bike
After you have ridden a minimum of 12 to 20 hours in your new position (with new equipment if recommended) to discuss and 'tweak' the fit

New Bike
1/ Fit you comfortably on your new bike within the envelope of a regular bike fit to suit your body parameters, pedaling technique and riding ability.

2/ 3rd session (for new bikes only – another 30-60 minutes); after you have a minimum of 12 to 20 hours in your new position to discuss and 'tweak' the fit.

  • 2nd &/or 3rd (new bike) sessions are necessary, as your body will adapt to the configuration of your new position.
  • At my discretion I may recommend a 4th visit if I think it is necessary (at no extra charge).

Cost for Bike Fits

  • $200 for 2 session for One Bike (2 to 3 hours)
  • $300 for 3 sessions for Two Bikes (3 to 4 hours)
  • $400 for 4 sessions for Three Bikes e.g. Road, TT & MTB (4 to 5 hours)


(All Payable at 1st appointment) Important Note:
All sessions must be completed within 60 days of the 1st session. At no extra charge I will recommend training guidelines and even specific exercises to strengthen any apparent weaknesses I see in your pedaling or riding technique. Bikefits are completed at my Home/office at 55 East Yale Loop, Irvine, CA USA

Quote from Coach Dave

I fit my athletes with a mixture of art and science. There are a lot of different methods out there for specifying bike sizing and fit positions. When you get to the bottom line every scientific and mathematical method of bike fitting is based on averages and generalizations. Even for ‘average’ size rider generic systems do not provide optimum fit. Whether you fall into young/old, short/small, big/tall or average rider category taking into account everyone from world champions to weekend tourist riders I will ultimately base your bike fit on my experience and the peculiarities of your body and personal style of riding.
