As one of the first “fitting schools” in the USA, Fit Kit Systems has offered educational workshops on bike fitting theory and practice since the 1980’s. Many of today’s leading bike fitters got their grounding in bike fitting from attending a Fit Kit Systems workshop.

Continually revised and updated, our workshops focus on foundational principles and a systematic process of information gathering, measurement, evaluation and adjustment of the bike-body relationship, with a rider-centric focus. We size and fit the bike to the body, rather than trying to fit the body to the bike.
If you attended a Fit Kit Systems workshop years ago, consider a refresher. There are changes in equipment, protocols using the data, and the fitting process.
Our curriculum offers a progression of skill development, with a focus on low tech measurement, observation and interaction with the cyclist. With a strong grounding in basic human anatomy, cycling bio-mechanics, contact points, joint angles and problem solving, students are better equipped to embrace the learning and use of high tech digital fitting tools and systems.
Workshops can be customized to suit a particular audience, learning outcome or level of skill development. Contact us if you have an interest in a workshop designed specifically for an in-house group.
Although face to face workshops offer the strongest learning environment due to the hands on practice, participant inquiry and interaction, we also offer education via video and written instructional materials, newsletters and blog posts.
If you are a bicycle retailer who does not currently offering bike fitting, and you are giving it consideration, take a look at our free online presentation: “Getting Started With Bike Fitting“.
