Welcome! To implement a bike sizing or fitting service into your operation there are a number of factors to consider and resources you will need.
Are you clear on the service you want to provide?
What resources and skills do you already have?
What have you tried in the past?
What are your short and mid term objectives, time frames, expectations and budget?
If you need assistance fleshing out any of these answers, you many benefit for some consultation.Advice
Hardware and Software
You will need tools and equipment. Not much to start with, but some.
The core equipment set for our approach is the “Fit Kit”, which is the tool set needed to implement the Fit Kit System.
The “Fit Kit” is the hardware. The “Fit Kit System” is the operating process.
It needs a bit of software to be used effectively.
This can be a free mobile or web app, or our subscription based web app called Fit Kit Studio that provides for customer record keeping and report generating.Fit Kit Studio
Additional bike and body measurement tools will also be recommended.
Having the equipment, but without the proper instruction in how to use it will leave you with an under utilized asset and a substandard service.
Staff training is necessary and important for effective implementation.
As a minimum you will need to do our courses in “Understanding Bike Sizing” and “How to Use the Fit Kit”
Additional courses on bike fitting skills are also available.
