Did you know that with a proper bike fit, you can ride with greater comfort, for longer, and even faster? BikeSource is proud to have multiple official Retül fit studios. Retül is the most accurate and comprehensive bike fit data available. Whether you’re a weekend warrior, a seasoned racer, or a commuter, you will notice an immediate improvement in your comfort and performance on your bike.
Comfort is the single most important factor in enjoying riding your bike. It's simple. If you’re not comfortable, you’re not likely to enjoy riding your bike. Why would you? Too often, cyclists associate pain with cycling. The truth is, while it’s OK to suffer to the top of the climb, it’s not OK to suffer with knee, hand, shoulder, or back pain. Pain in your joints, back or contact points is a good sign that something is not quite right with your bike fit. By utilizing Retül technology to analyze your position on the bike, not only can we work towards eliminating your pain, but we can make you faster and help you ride longer in the process.
Designed to help new riders ensure comfort on any bike, this fit looks at your general flexibility and stability and achieves a good position on the bike with static measures. We will cover the following in this fit:
|• Interview||• Cleat Placement|
|• Sit Bone Measurement||• Leg Extension|
|• Foot Rotation||• Saddle Fore/Aft|
|• Standing Toe Touch||• Handlebar Position|
|• Arch Height||• Arch Support|
|• Neck Flexion||• Documentation|
|• Saddle Selection|
It is a dynamic process for those riders seeking the ultimate experience. This state-of-the-art motion capture equipment will track your movements and allow the fitter to diagnose issues in real time. The RETUL fit is for the rider who may be suffering from pain, has a significant medical history, looking to maximize performance, or has been unable to find a comfortable position previously. This fit will cover the following:
|• Foundation Fit from above||• Dynamic Leg Extension RETUL|
|• Hamstring Flexibility||• Handlebar Position Video|
|• Leg Length Symmetry||• Arch Support RETUL|
|• Thomas Test||• Fore Foot Varus Support RETUL|
|• 1/3 Knee Bend||• Stance Width RETUL|

The RETUL fit process balances comfort and performance, focusing on identifying your optimal position, one that your body can support and you can sustain. We know that every rider is different, and our system is designed specifically to accommodate your unique needs. Every Retül bike fit starts with an in depth rider profile to identify these needs. By understanding your cycling history, we are able to address injuries, as well as your goals, for the near future. Then, using our Retül Müve SL Dynamic Fit Bike, we’re able to compose an ideal fit position quickly and accurately, before ultimately transposing the measurements to your bike. If you’re in the market for a new bike, we are also able to use your current/previous fit geometry to identify the perfect bike for you. With Retül, we can help you become one with your bike.
