Bike Fitting

Fit First

Bike Fitting - Moment lives by “Fit First” [Fit the person, then find the bike that matches the person BEST]. A new technology called the “dynamic fit bike” made this possible. In 2007 Moment improved the process creating a proprietary method to compare rider positions to all bikes using computer technology. Moment “virtually” matches bikes to the rider’s best position. Moment shows a rider before they buy what configuration of bars, stem, saddle etc. for a particular bike model. The rider has complete information before making the purchase. Hence, the name of the process, FIT FIRST. Moment Bicycles is San Diego’s only Fit First retailer. Moment Bicycles is built around the philosophy of the best product and service for YOU. Our process takes a little longer but will make you (a lot) faster/comfortable/powerful. Schedule an appointment. Be more comfortable, powerful, efficient and faster than ever.

It’s not about the bike, it’s about the moments you spend riding it. 

Why Get Fit?

Do your knees, neck, hips, shoulders hurt? Backache, toes tingle, or saddle rub you the wrong way? Searching for the perfect new ride? Or the last 10th of a second?

Guarantee limitations & restrictions: There are a few instances where Moment cannot be held responsible for a customer’s satisfaction after a bike fit. Your must adjust your bike to Moment’s recommendations. If we make recommendations to get the bike to the proper position and you decide to ride it as is, or in some compromised position, Moment cannot be held responsible for less than ideal results. If new parts are needed to accommodate the new position, the parts do not have to be purchased from Moment Bicycles, but the position developed during the fit must match. Moment does not guarantee your bicycle will accommodate the recommended position. It is rare, but possible, that a bike you already own will not accommodate the position developed during the fit process. Moment Bicycles can recommend different frames to fix this situation, but cannot be held responsible for less than ideal results if a bicycle cannot accommodate the recommended position. This guarantee only applies to fit services.
