GURU Fit System

02/01/2017


The best bike starts with a proper fit. Our bike shop offers a new revolutionary approach to finding your perfect bike on the GURU FIT SYSTEM! This advanced computer scan technology can measure your exact specifications to help you select the right size and model for your riding style. Whether you're in the market for a new road, mountain, cyclocross, triathlon or recreational bike, the GURU Fit System will scan its database of over 10,000 bikes to find a perfect match!

GURU3

How it Works:


The GURU Fit System has two key components: a robotic bike and a 3D scan camera to capture your exact measurements. The new Connect 2.0 camera, can shoot more frames per second to measure precise body angles and alignment, all while you are sitting and pedaling on the GURU bike. Our technician will then make adjustments in real-time so that you can compare the feeling of each different setting. The bike will adjust at an incline and decline to simulate different riding conditions, to guarantee you are comfortable no matter where you are riding.


We offer two types of sessions:


Sizing -- For anyone who wants to test a variety of bikes or make fine tune adjustments to their current bike. The prices of sizing and fitting sessions include the modifications that are made to the bike (only additional parts cost extra).
Road- $100, MTB- $50 (15-30 mins) A sizing session is complimentary when you are buying a bike from Outdoor Sports Center.

What's included:


1. Our 3D scan camera will capture your exact measurements, in seconds and search the GURU Fit Systems computer database to find a bike as a starting point.

2. While sitting and pedaling on on the GURU Bike, the motion capture 3D camera will measure your precise body angles, so the technician can fine tune your bikes: saddle height, handlebar reach, and handlebar height to make proper adjustments.

3. After we discover your preferences, you will test the bike on an incline and decline to simulate different riding conditions and ensure you're comfortable and safe! In the end, you will have the best brand, model, frame size and stem size that fits you!

4. We can then use the x/y coordinates to fine-tune an existing or brand new bike! 

 


Fitting --
 A more in-depth process, where we zero in on every part of your bike to correct alignment issues, for your body, speed and performance.
Road/MTB- $250, TRI- $250-350 (1-2hrs)


What's included:  After going through everything in the sizing session, we will work more closely with you to ensure maximum performance by:


-Evaluating riders history
-Monitoring cleat positioning and recommending shoe inserts
-Adjusting crank length, based on your height
-Testing different handlebar widths and saddle options
-Correcting saddle height, and handlebar reach as well as height
-Testing limitations though power resistents
-Show body positioning with live video feed
-Final fit coordinates emailed to you
-X/Y Coordinates transferred to your bike at no additional cost

Get Fat this Year!

01/25/2017

We have reached a unanimous decision here in our bike shop--fat bikes are the absolute best things ever. Allowing you to ride all year long, over snow, sand and everything in between! Head down to our shop, take one for a test ride, and start enjoying the winter chill!

 

 fathel

 

Why Fat Bikes?   They are the cool kids of our stock this winter, and we can't stop riding them! These bad boys can float over the toughest obstacles with ease, and the best part is, they were built for snow and sand. The warm weather this year has certainly extended our mountain biking season, but fat bikes allow the season to be extended indefinitely with the ability to ride easily over snow-packed trails. We stock fat bikes from Specialized, Cannondale, Charge and Salsa. Read what our most avid fat-bikers love most about riding in the snow!

 tires

"While most people see a fat bike as an alternative bike for winter riding, I like it because of the added performance it offers. The increased tire footprint offers added traction in steeper and more technical terrain." -John 

 

"The great thing is that although most fat tire bikes are rigid, the tires are wide enough that they actually act as suspension. It won't work the same if they are completely inflated, but if you run the pressure a little lower, the tires will deform over rocks and other terrain." -Shane 

 

Specialized Fatboy 24

 "It's pretty rad. And confidence-inspiring!" -Mike H.

 

"Being able to bike year-round is the absolute best part of it. Even the same old trails feel like all new terrain when you're on the snow. It's easier to do night riding too, because any light will reflect off the snow and illuminate everything. The grip on snow is crazy! Most high-end bikes don't have grip shifts, but a lot of fat bikes do so you can shift easily while wearing winter gloves." -Tyler

 

"It's really nice to be able to ride in the sand, whether it's soft dry sand or packed. Having more surface area in the tires gives you better steering and grip." -Will

Road Bikes for Every Rider

01/01/2017

Outdoor Sports Center has a huge selection of road bikes from the top brands like Cannondale, Specialized, and Colnago. From entry level to top of the line, we have the perfect bike for every level of rider. We have a large selection of womens specific bikes and now we even carry road bikes for kids so the whole family can get out and enjoy the open road. We all ride so we understand that finding the right bike is an important.

TarmacThe Tarmac SL4 is a pure and unbridled race machine. It climbs effortlessly, descends confidently, and sprints ferociously. It's the lightest, stiffest frame we make and it shows as soon as you push on the pedals. Bottom line, you'll be faster on this bike. There's a reason it's the weapon of choice for the Saxo-Tinkoff, Astana and Omega Pharma-Quick-Step Pro Tour teams. 

venge

The Venge is fast. Plain and simple. Behind it sits a myriad of science, testing, aerodynamic tweaking and design. What does all this mean for you? A bike that's faster in the flats, faster over rollers, and faster in sprints. The Venge will save you 22 watts over 40kp/hr compared to a Tarmac. Couple that with FACT carbon that's nearly as light as it is stiff and the only excuse you have for going slower are those things you're standing on.

Evo1

 

The SuperSix EVO from Cannondale is the ultimate road racing machine. Designed to be the perfect blend of all the key factors of performance - weight, stiffness, strength, compliance, handling and aerodynamics. 

Synapse

The perfect balance between raw power and all-day ridability, the all-new Synapse combines remarkably light weight, race-proven performance and dialed vertical compliance in a bicycle that redefines "Endurance." The ultimate partner for the epic ride. The Synapse from Cannondale is the ideal blend of crush meets plush.
