Bike Fitting

A good bike fit is worth more than the bike itself. The bike fitting process involves specific adjustments to the saddle height, fore/aft position, cleats and handle bar positioning to adapt your bicycle to your body and riding style. This process improves comfort, performance control of the bike and is a very important part to enjoying cycling! While there are many fitters, our Friday Night Spins riders in the Dallas area have enjoyed success working with Mat Stephens, Pro cyclist and coach. Bike fits are by appointment and can be scheduled by emailing speedyacetraining@gmail.com

Local Bike Shops

We love them, we support them, they are the backbone of cycling and keep us rolling! Friday Night Spins is not attached to any particular shop although we encourage you to keep your business local and frequent the shops in the area whenever possible.
