Ride Faster, Longer and with Greater Comfort!

At Village Bikes we pride ourselves on being Bike Fit specialists. Our staff Is certified by Specialized’s Body Geometry Fitting System and whether you are purchasing a new bike or seeking to improve your experience on your existing bike; road, mountain, triathlon, or time trial, we have a number of fit services suited for your needs. Specialized’s Body Geometry Fitting System was developed in collaboration with bike-fit expert Dr. Andy Pruitt (Boulder Center for Sports Medicine) and renowned frame builder Ben Serotta (Serotta Bicycles). Where other fitting methods rely on personal opinion, cycling mythology or hastily-taken measurements, Specialized’s Body Geometry Fit System uses the latest technology to ensure a precise fit based on your exact measurements, which incorporate your athletic and cycling background, height, and flexibility to determine specific vertical and horizontal coordinates.
The real beauty of this system lies in our ability to obtain a perfect fit in a short amount of time. You can rest assured that you aren’t only purchasing the correct bike for your needs, but a bike that’s custom fit for optimum efficiency and comfort. Experts agree that this is the crucial component to your ultimate satisfaction.

If the Shoe Fits
For maximum power transfer on the road or trail and for exceptional comfort on a spin bike, we recommend clipless cycling shoes and pedals. With stiffer soles and the ability to click into and out of your pedal system easily, cycling shoes make your ride and your workout more efficient, more effective, and more comfortable. Never get stuck in a toe cage again!
