Complimentary bike sizing

We include complimentary bike sizing with every bike purchased from Bike Gallery. This ensures that you will receive the ideal bicycle size and determine the approximate recommended saddle height by examining your leg and knee extension.

What is the difference between bike sizing and a bicycle fit?
Some competitors call their bicycle sizing a “bicycle fit” but a true bicycle fitting is so much more. Many people compare getting a bicycle sized the equivalent of making sure you purchase the correct suit size. Getting your suit tailored to your unique body shape is the equivalent of bicycle fitting. Getting the right size bike is important, but nothing is more comfortable and efficient than a bicycle that perfectly matches your body and riding style.

If you’re considering a new bike, talk to us first! Unfortunately we frequently fit people on bikes that they have purchased elsewhere and they have to return or exchange their bike for a new one because it was not correctly sized at the time of purchase. We are concerned about the fit first and we can tell you what specific frames and sizes will work for best for you. You can be assured that we will never recommend a bike that is wrong for you just to make a sale.

Who would benefit from a bicycle fit?

Riding a bike should be fun and comfortable. Almost any cyclists would benefit from a customized bicycle fit. Our staff is trained to work with all riders from the serious rider demanding top performance to the recreational rider or commuter wanting to improve their comfort and efficiency. Additionally, customers who have issues with pain or numbness while cycling, pre-existing injuries or arthritis are especially ideal candidates for a more customized fitting.

Who are you accredited by?

We have received training from most of the major fitting accreditors including Trek, Specialized BG Fit, Serotta International Cycling Institute Personal and Advanced Fit Systems, Bike Fit Systems, and Fit Institute of Slow Twitch (F.I.S.T). Our training program was originally developed by a physical therapist and is composed of a combination of the best of these expert trainings perfected over two decades of fitting. Unlike many fitting systems that rely solely on body measurements and mathematical averages, our system looks at you as an individual and we fit your bike to the unique needs of your body. We’re so confident of our fit services that we guarantee them for a year.

What is included?

The redesigned fit area of the Hollywood Bike Gallery.Our complete fits start with a pre-fit interview where we discuss your riding style, cycling history, previous injuries, age, gender, fitness level and fitness goals. We will also measure your body geometry and range of motion to allow us to determine the best fit for you, optimized down to the smallest details. We will also work with you to address specific issues such as knee pain, back/shoulder/neck pain, saddle or hand numbness, hot spots or general foot pain.

What to bring:

For all fittings, please bring your bicycle, pedals, saddle and comfortable riding clothes (shirt, shorts and shoes). Please bring items that will most closely mirror those you will be using on most rides.
