Professional RETÜL Bike Fitting

Body Geometry Fit - Spirited Cyclist

"A proper bike fit is essential for injury prevention and maximized efficiency. An optimal position on the bike will allow for greater comfort and enjoyment while riding and all bodies are different and your position on the bike should reflect your biomechanics."

Retul Bike Fitting
Retül Technology is a cycling specific motion-capture bike fitting system designed to provide qualified bike fitters highly accurate and comprehensive bike fit data:


  • The goal of Retül technology is to assist bike fitters in making objective and accurate fit decisions
  • A proper bike fit is the most important factor for optimal performance and efficiency, injury prevention, and comfort on the bike.
  • A proper bike fit will provide a rider with the most economic means of expending energy
  • A proper bike fit will also prevent pain that is common in the knee, hip, and lower back, particularly with riders who are trying to adapt their bodies to the bike they already have purchased.
Retul Bike Fit
The Retül system reads the rider’s movements while they are in motion on the bike, and accounts for all three planes of movement (3D).



  • This type of data cannot accurately be captured with 2D video, static fitting, or eyeball fitting.
  • The Retül system eliminates the guesswork and assumptive nature of bike fit.
  • The result is that the rider will have a true fit to his or her bike, maximizing efficiency and performance while avoiding discomfort or injury. 
Retül promotes and encourages accurate and data-driven decisions for bike fit while considering the goals, individual biomechanics, strengths, and limitations of each rider.


  • The Retül system eliminates the guesswork and assumptive nature of bike fit.
  • The training and experience of the fitter is essential to a good bike fitting experience.
  • We provide the fitter with the most accurate fitting tool available so that he or she can increase the chances of achieving the desired position for each athlete.

FIVE STAR RETÜL FIT REVIEWS

Love working with the staff at Uptown Cycles. Extremely knowledgeable in their product and overall biking concerns or questions you may have.

- Shenar Wood


Had a Retül fitting with Chris. Great experience and very informative on how to maximize efficiency on my bike. Overall good vibe from this place. Would highly recommend this shop.

- Tappey Squires


Super professional environment and super happy with how both of my fits have gone. Thanks Chris!

- Patton Sims


This review is for the Custom Retul Fütbed Cycling Insoles. I felt so good about my bike fitting a couple weeks before that I came back in to purchase a pair of these custom insoles. and I must say, these insoles are probably one of my favorite bike purchases this past year. The difference I feel after wearing them while cycling compared to my other out of the box cycling insoles was unreal. In fact, I liked them so much that I am having my girlfriend come and get a pair!

- Rusty Bridges


Well worth the time and money to have a fitting with Chris and his knowledge behind the fit. I’ve always had knee issues and he took the time to listen and get it right. My knee issues are permanent for me but the discomfort is not anymore!

- Michael Grant

Another fantastic experience getting fitted by Chris, this time for a road bike.  Saw Chris initially about 6 years ago before my first Ironman.  He got me totally dialed in position-wise.  Felt comfortable during all those hours in the saddle on training rides going into the race, and during the event.  I had the peace of mind knowing the fit on the bike is not the issue if any nagging physical issues came up.  Just got a road bike last month, and I knew I had to have Chris get me into the same comfort level I can trust in.  Not only is Chris good at fitting, he is just such a nice guy.  Can't recommend him more!

- Rob Chen


Highly impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of Chris during my recent fit session. I’ve been riding for years, but never quite felt comfortable. Chris took the time to listen to my concerns and get me dialed in, no more needless guessing by me, YAH! Well worth the time and would recommend to anyone looking for more comfort and power.

- Jay Walsh


Chris is excellent at a Retúl fit.  If you are an serious rider, then a computer fit is necessary to keep you injury free. Chris is great to meet your needs from casual to competitive cycling or triathlon. Highly recommend.

- Christi Coomes
I’ve had trouble getting “comfortable” on the bike, and a Retul fit has been the answer to many of my issues. Chris at Uptown not only used the technology that Retul provides, but also years of cycling experience to customize solutions and address nagging issues I was having. Whether you race, or like me, are fighting to stay on the bike as you age and deal with injuries, a Retul fit is a must! 


- Richelle Calicott   



I consider myself to be a rookie cyclist who have taken up road cycling at a late stage. After friendly recommendations by the masses and the constant discomfort of riding a road bike it was time to get rid of numbness in my right hand and get better speed and power on the bike. Uptown Cycling has the master class tool in the Retul technology to optimize each individual position on a bike to gain comfort and the joy of riding. With Chris awesome experiences and the professionalism he brings along with the technology of Retul, this is a must for everyone regardless of status. My hand position have improved, legs are now spinning freely and not grinding as before. I highly recommend this fit for any cyclist at any level. - Ev Harris
