Our Approach

Our philosophy has always been to treat everyone as we would like to be treated and to add value to everything we do.  Our bike fit is all about YOU! 

We believe bike fitting is part of a total care process to ensure you are 1- riding or purchasing the correctly sized bike and 2- you are pleased with how you and your bike work together to achieve your goals, whether it’s recreational, fitness riding, doing your first century, that long mountain bike race, or finishing your first Ironman. 

A bicycle is one of the most interactive and biomechanically connected pieces of sporting equipment most people will ever buy. Each person is unique and it’s critical to start with that in mind. The Green Lizard Cycling fitting process integrates all the professional skills and decades of experience of our team to help you reach your cycling goals.

Regardless of the price level at which you are purchasing, there is no reason to compromise on getting a ride you can love for a lifetime. This is why Green Lizard Cycling starts the bike purchase process with a new bike sizing focused on "you first”.

What’s new at Green Lizard Cycling Fit Studio:

Green Lizard Cycling never stops improving and investing on our Bike Fit Studio.

For 2019 Green Lizard Cycling is excited to introduce the Shimano Dynamics Lab bike fitting system

Green Lizard waited for a long time, but finally Shimano  managed to produce the best Bike Fit system in the industry. Green Lizard Cycling is one of the first shops in the US to offer this system. We have expanded the bike fit area to accommodate this new state of the art fit equipment. This system not only sees and measures knees, pelvis, shoulders, neck, etc ... but also evaluates your pedal stroke. Are you as efficient as you can be? SHIMANO DYNAMICS LAB @ Green Lizard Cycling will help you figure that out.

Combining SHIMANO DYNAMICS LAB, your Bike Fit will be performed with Dialed-in-Motion Introduced 2 years ago, this is the most comprehensive Bike Fit Video System on the east coast. You can see yourself riding in 4 different angles !! With Clovis’s help you’ll be able to see what can be done to improve your cycling experience. We will make the necessary adjustments and in real time you’ll be able to see the before and after results with combined videos.

2D Bike Sizing Fit

30 Minutes $75.00

When purchasing a new bike, you want to be sure you're buying a bike that is the correct size.  Using the Shimano Body Analyzer 2d with just 10 measurements as input, the system translates the rider’s body dimensions into bike positions for all kinds of disciplines and preferences. Shimano has enhanced the static measurement technique over the last decades, in order to provide reliable data for selling the right bike. Not only will it give you the numbers to build a custom frame, but it also translates those numbers to over 60 brands and 3000 frames to determine and calculate the ideal frame size for your specific customer.

This step is the basis for all further fitting done in our program. It gives XY data that guide the set-up of the Position Simulator bike sizing that will make sure you will be getting a bike that fits whether or not you get it from Green Lizard. If you do purchase from us the 2D bike sizing is refunded with any bike purchase. This is our most basic level of fit, but it is far from just eyeballing it. At the time of purchase, we will determine the correct size, and then set your saddle height, saddle fore/aft, handlebar height and reach. Upon request, parts consultation recommendations are offered, and saddle width and arch height could be measured. 

The goal of these adjustments is to give the rider the most comfortable position possible on the new bike. If you are looking to advance your relationship with a bike or have more complex challenges, see some of our options below.      

Please note that this is a basic sizing appropriate for many bikes.   It does not include fit reports, or advanced analysis. We strongly encourage upgrading to one of the more comprehensive Green Lizard Cycling fits to get the most out of your new bike, and we do offer a discount for new bike purchases on these advanced fits.
