Bike Sizing Guide

 

The Importance of a Correctly Fitting Bike

A quality bicycle fit from Trek is just as important as a Trek quality bicycle.  If you’re not fit correctly, you’re more than likely not going to enjoy your new ride.  In addition, maybe you have an existing bicycle and it’s “just not comfortable.”

Common symptoms of a poorly fit bicycle or the incorrect size bicycle can include:

  • Hand Numbness
  • Neck, Back, Shoulder, Knee Pain
  • Foot Irritation or Numbness
  • Eye Strain
  • Loss of Handling or Unsteadiness
  • Loss of Performance 

At Rival Bikes, it’s our goal to have everyone fit correctly to their bicycle before they walk out the door, from a classic cruiser up to a high performance time trial bike.  It’s also our goal to place you in a position where you’re comfortable whatever your riding goals may be. For more information about our bicycle fit services, stop in to or give us a call.

 

Trek bikes feature excellence in design, to ensure kids frames allow for growth spurts (in their saddle heights, geometry, and stems), to ensure a long lasting, quality bike. Don’t settle for a department boxed bike, Trek’s dialed frames will grow as the child does. The same Trek quality that you know and love makes each Trek Childrens bike fun, safe and durable, now, and for years to come.
