Women's Bike Fitting Clinic – Saturday July 24th at 6pm


What:
A Women’s Bike Fitting Clinic, where we will introduce the Bikerowave (West L.A.’s only not for profit DIY Bicycle Co-op) and discuss common bike fitting issues pertaining to female cyclists, to be followed by some hands-on adjustment and advice for improved fit. (Bring your bike if you’ve got one, otherwise, come anyway, we can give you some pointers on what to look for.)

.

.

.

Subjects covered:

The bike – Is your bike the right size? What size do you need? How do you measure this?

Saddle design – Like Goldilocks’ porridge, it must be “just right” (Not too hard, but not too soft either.)

Saddle position – height, angle, fore-aft position (and why moving the seat forward is not the best way to compensate for a long top tube).

Handlebar / stem position – how adjusting the length and height of your handlebar and stem positions can vastly affect the feel of your bike.

Riding positions – how to get most comfortable for the style of riding you’re doing.

How long: Approx 90 minutes. A brief intro to bike fitting, followed by some open shop time to get your bike fitted properly.

When: Saturday, July 24th, 6pm.

Where: The Bikerowave, 12255 Venice Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90066 (In Mar Vista, between Grand View and Centinela.)

Cost: Free!

(Please post in the comments if you have any questions.)

    Everybody is welcome to come and listen! This will be a clinic aimed at women but guys are more than welcome to come so they know how to help their lady-friends be more comfortable on their bikes. Because bike dates are better than regular dates. FACT.

  2. JB says:

    JB is, but if you want to help, you’re more than welcome.

    Great idea, this is so important for folks to actually be comfortable on their bike and avoid muscles strains. Who is running this bike fit clinic?
