Retrofits BiKyle ~

 

Sadly, most people sit their bikes wrongly. By that we mean, they do not use the tool underneath them in a way that maximizes their own physical attributes nor do they fully utilize the design of their specific bike. On the rare occasion where the body and the bike do match, progress occurs automatically. The rider improves with every riding session.

Kyle's nationally renowned retrofits are designed to give the rider the best possible ride on their current equipment while giving the body the chance to develop most correctly.

Kyle performs all retrofits himself. He will measure your body and your current bike. Then, he will adjust your bike to its best possible position. This is followed by an extensive training session with you on the bike. Essential points covered include:

bullet

ankling action to break detrimental habits and increase coordination

bullet

proper knee planes to prevent long term damage

bullet

the essential pelvic tilt

bullet

chest position for front end leverage and open breathing

bullet

relaxing with a shoulder shrug

bullet

the body's natural shock absorbers

bullet

the three essential saddle positions

bullet

the early "sweet spot" on the cranks

bullet

the five most valuable handlebar positions - road and mountain

bullet

the three monitors of proper pedal action

Because Kyle's time is quite limited, retrofits are only done at these select times: Wednesday or Thursday afternoons with 1:00, 2:00, or 3:00 pm start times. Retrofits generally take 1.5 hours. Call the BiKyle staff at (610) 525-8442 and they will let you know the next times available. The cost is $150 for the session. A new handlebar and/or stem is often suggested; parts and labor for these items are extra, but there is no pressure to purchase these items even if recommended.

Tandem retrofits - Kyle will fit both captain and stoker in the same session. Fee is $225 for both and takes apx 1.5 to 2 hours.

Retrofits are intended to optimize your ride on your existing bike; they do not include a design or recommendations for a new bike. We do not retrofit bikes recently purchased elsewhere - new or used; Kyle's time is very limited plus that would create bad feelings between shops or friends and we don't wish to do that. Thank you for your understanding. 

To schedule a BiKyle retrofit call 610-525-8442.  

At the time of your appointment, bring your riding shorts, a comfortable riding shirt, your cycling shoes plus your bicycle. And, bring a towel; you will get sweaty!
