Shop Rides Starting!

Click the picture below and check out our shop rides starting soon! We will add more dates and times as the weather improves.

Now Showing: BG D.A.T.A. Fitting

We’ve been talking about it for some time now and it’s at long last here!  Specialized’s latest fitting tool – Dual Angle Technical Analysis (D.A.T.A.) Video Capture system – is in the store and being set up.  By taking a live video “snapshot” of your riding we see a more realistic representation of what difference our adjustments are making.  D.A.T.A. allows truely dynamic bike fitting by letting the fitter measure and analyze in motion.

Of course, the best tools are only good in the hands of someone experienced.  Our fit department has fitted thousands of riders (full fittings – not just new bike “sizings”) over nearly 10 years and D.A.T.A. is just the next tool we’re adding to our toolbox to help you enjoy your ride better.  For the month of February, we’re reserving the D.A.T.A. system for our team members.  Watch for an announcement in March regarding open appointments for everyone else!

For more information on D.A.T.A. and our fitting services – ask us; or go to:

Team Saxo Bank and Specialized BG Fit

I have just returned from the Specialized BG Fit Masters’ training seminar and the BG Fit crew (Andy Pruitt, Scott Holz, and others) have just returned from the Team Saxo Bank training camp in the Canary Islands. They had this video to share that I thought you’d enjoy.

The video shows the BG (Body Geometry) Advanced D.A.T.A. video capture system in action. This is the same system and same fitting process that we’ll be unveiling at Sunset Cycles later this month! Do you want similar “performance enhancing” changes that the Saxo guys are talking about? Schedule your appointment for the Advanced D.A.T.A. fit!

Also; some insider info – Andy is flying out to Zurich soon to finish up some work they started on Fabian Cancellara. He’s shared some of that process with us this week – so be on the lookout for more success from Fabian.

The other interesting thing is to hear them talk about the work they’ve started with Alberto Contador (now that Astana is riding Specialized…). Big changes to his cleat position! He should be even harder to catch now!

I’ll share more from Morgan Hill later! Enjoy the ride!
