ACME Fit Labs workshop

Please join us for a 3-day workshop on bike fitting fundamentals at ACME Bicycle Co., in Brooklyn, NY!

The workshop has been created based on years of experience fitting bikes, teaching others how to fit bikes and operating a small business based on bike fitting.

This course, 'The Fundamentals of Bike Fit', will be taught using a variety of bike fit tooling including the Guru Dynamic Fit Unit and EXIT Cycling fitting bikes. Motion capture systems from Retul and Guru may be demonstrated. Students will leave with a basic understanding of how these tools work and how to best utilize them during a bike fitting.

In addition to many opportunities to practice, lecture topics will include:

  • Bike Fit Theory

  • Understanding a fit bike and the X/Y Coordinate System

  • Bike fit flow

  • Bike measuring and transferring fit coordinates

  • Choosing and selling a bike based on a fit first approach

  • Understanding Bike fit genres and nuances (Road, Triathlon, Cyclocross, Mountain Bike)

  • Cleat placement, insoles and wedges

  • Saddle selection and riding posture

This course is open to everyone, no prerequisites or experience are necessary, only a passion to learn.

Course review material will be distributed after registration is complete to allow students to familiarize themselves with topics prior to attending.

We suggest that all students bring riding attire (bike shorts, jerseys and bike shoes) to class every day so that they may participate in hands on learning.

Lunch, Snacks and Refreshments will be provided each day.
