Cognition Cyclery is dedicated to making sure that every rider has the best possible experience. Bike fit is a huge part of that mission and we’ve made it our goal to ensure that every rider that rolls out our door has had their bike adjusted to meet their needs. We include a comprehensive sizing at no charge with every bike we sell. That same sizing is also available on bicycles that were not purchased from Cognition Cyclery. It consists of setting saddle height and fore-aft position based on leg length and knee over pedal spindle, and adjusting handlebar reach to a comfortable, neutral hand position.
The body is a highly adaptable machine, but more importantly, the bicycle is a highly adjustable piece of equipment. The bike should be fit to the body and not the other way around. With this in mind, we’re proud to be a Body Geometry Fit studio. Body Geometry is the most comprehensive system for connecting bike and rider in perfect harmony. Body Geometry Fit is ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to maximize power, endurance and comfort through a systematic customization of your bike and equipment at all three contact points. It’s the best way to make your bicycle fit your body specifically.
The Body Geometry fit process consists of five main parts:
- Rider Profile Interview - Every fit, whether a novice or experienced cyclist, starts with an interview between trained fit specialist and rider to understand a your injury history, needs, and goals.
- Physical Assessment -This is the key to the Body Geometry fit process, allowing your fit specialist to develop an accurate picture of your flexibility, range of motion and other physical attributes, so they’ll be able to make the proper adjustments to help you be one with your bike.
- Side View - Assessed from the side, the goal is to determine your unique active riding position that’s both powerful and comfortable through adjustments to the seat height and fore-aft, handlebar position, stem length, and cleat placement.
- Front View - Unique to the Body Geometry fit process, this frontal view analysis will optimize their hip, knee, and foot alignment for greater performance and balanced power delivery.
- Follow Up - After a week or so, your fit specialist will call to ensure the changes were effective and to answer any other questions or concerns you may have. A follow up appointment will be scheduled to make any needed adjustments and to take final measurements.

If the Shoe Fits
For maximum power transfer on the road or trail and for exceptional comfort on a spin bike, we recommend clipless cycling shoes and pedals. With stiffer soles and the ability to click into and out of your pedal system easily, cycling shoes make your ride and your workout more efficient, more effective, and more comfortable. Never get stuck in a toe cage again!
