Maplewood Fitting Services

We offer two different fitting bases: Either on a Trainer, utilizing your bike, or starting with the Guru DFU then transferring those fit coordinates to your existing or new bike.

Trainer Based Fit Services: These fitting are preformed on your exsisting bicycle or for a new one from Maplewood Bicycle. This option, in many instances, is the more efficient and accurate approach due to time savings from utilizing the geometry and existing components of your (or new) bike for the changes needed. So, no added set up time from transferring the fit off the Guru DFU, and added precision from using your components.
