The best investment you will ever make is the proper bike fit. As the longest segment of a triathlon, the cycling leg can make or break your day in both training and racing. Fitting your bike to your needs is the most relevant thing you can do to improve your event, including improving your run. Whether it is fitting you on your existing bike so that you are as efficient as possible, or purchasing a new bike, it is all the same to us. It is our job to carefully balance the art and science of your fit.
For most, if not all of us, education is an inherent part of your bike fit. This is where our biomechanical efficiencies or inefficiencies are typically brought to light, where art and science come into play. Our exercise physiologists understand this balance and have been fitting bikes for more years than any one of us would care to admit.
Let us evolve with you. Our job is to do everything we can to assist the most important need of all—to get you to the start line injury-free. Your training will naturally cause changes to your body—weight, flexibility, areas of strength, areas of challenge, and we want to help you and your fit evolve through those changes. We want to see you more than once a training cycle. Our Evolution Fit limits cost as a deterrent to seeing you in our fit studio.
With years of fitting experience and working with athletes over time, we realize just how much fitting is not a one time service. In fact, your body, your equipment, your training status, and philosophies are constantly in flux, so your fit should be as well. We want to see you through the changes and help facilitate the best fit over the coarse of the year.
We understand that fitting multiple times a year can add up, therefore, we have devised a pro rated cost structure to help make it more affordable to work with you through the season and help you meet your goals on the bike. This service is great for those who are just new to cycling, individuals seeking more performance, those working on loosing weight through cycling/triathlon, or even those who are coming back from an injury. We can help with both on the bike physical and postural changes, as well as off the bike exercises to keep you injury free.
The Evolution Fit starts with an initial Signature Fit, followed by 2 check-up fits that are determined at certain times through the year as discussed with your fitter. We look forward to helping you evolve as a rider and triathlete.

Triathletes and road racers competing in tris or time-trials want to be as efficient and aerodynamic as possible, but don’t always desire having a second bike. Some athletes only do a couple races a year and don’t need a second bike, some just want to make sure they like the sport first, and others are saving up the money to purchase the tri bike they really want in the future. This service is for those who have a road bike and want to add aerobars to their existing road bike for triathlons or time trials without investing into a second bike.

The fitters at CMS will walk through each possible change to find the cost/benefit ratio that works well for you and your racing needs. Motion capture software is not used for this service, but sometimes video is taken for visual understanding of key concepts. No measurements are recorded unless desired by the customer at an additional cost of $15 per bike setup (pre/post road or tri). Plan to spend about 2hrs for this fit. Additional parts are often needed during this service (ie. seat, aerobars, stem), so we offer a 10% discount on parts when you purchase 2 or more items to dial in your fit.
A regional appointment is used sparingly by Colorado Multisport. However if you are confident your bike position is great and just want to address point tenderness/numbness issues with the saddle or the foot/pedal interface or even a nagging injury, then a regional appointment may be scheduled. Typically no motion capture will be used.
During your appointment, we may suggest a 3D motion-capture bike fit. The cost of the regional appointment will be deducted from the 3D fitting if it is completed within three weeks.

Bike fitting at the junior level is instrumental in creating valuable muscle memory while achieving a safe position for the long-term health of young riders. We spend time teaching during any youth session to insure proper mechanics are being learned early.
When scheduling, the pricing will not reflect the junior rate, but we will sort that out when we take payment after the fit.
Call if you have questions for the fitters as they relate to your young rider.
“I have competed in triathlons for years and just thought my level of discomfort was normal on the bike since I had a few bike fits. I was having a specific issue and decided to try the fitting at CMS and found that all my discomforts were alleviated with some simple changes. Thank you so much for all your expertise and teaching me more about my fit.” — Joyce
