SW Florida's Bike Fitting Headquarters
Regardless of what type of cycling you enjoy, you'll benefit from a bike that has been properly adjusted to fit your body and your riding style. Our certified fit specialists will discuss your cycling history and goals. We'll then work with you to determine your ideal riding position.
With a professional bike fit, you can be more comfortable, more efficient, and more powerful on every ride. You’ll also be less likely to sustain injuries on a bike that has been expertly configured to meet your needs.
"Fit First" Philosophy
We are strong proponents of a "Fit First" philosophy. Bikes have become more advanced, with hydraulic disc brakes, and cables routed through the fork, stem, and bars. This technology is great but it makes post purchase adjustments difficult and expensive due to the labor required to make the changes. At Naples Cyclery we recommend conducting a bike fitting before your bike purchase. We will determine the correct size for the frame, stem, seat-post and saddle and the exact fitting parameters.
We will credit you $100 on your fitting in you purchase a bike from us within 60 days!
Experience & The Right Tools!
It is not widely known that even the most sophisticated bike fitting system doesn't tell the fitter how to fit a cyclist. Bike Fitting is highly individualized due many factors including the cyclist's experience, flexibility, core strength, age and injuries. The perfect bike fit is a result of training, experience and having the right tools.

Pro Triathlete, Kayla Porkorny
Greg is an awesome bike fitter! He has fit me on both road and TT bikes, the most recent being a Trek Speed Concept in which he dialed in my position to a T. I am so comfortable and fast on that bike that I can race a sprint triathlon, or do a 120 mile ride on it, without getting an achy back or shoulders. He is also a bottomless pit of knowledge on all things cycling!
I try and do a fit every year to ensure any changes to my body are accounted for. Greg has fit me on my road bike and tri bike. Each time he works through his process methodically and professionally. It was obvious from the first few minutes that Greg has a wealth of experience. Always cool and calm, he is great with people. I would highly recommend Greg for the new cyclist or experienced racer.
USAT National Champion, Grace Plager
Thank you for the excellent bike fit at Naples Cyclery earlier this year in preparation for the Duathlon Draft Legal Sprint Nationals (Road Bike) and the Standard Duathlon Nationals (Triathlon Bike) in Irving, Texas this past April. I was having issues with the power imbalance (right/left leg) on my road bike and not being fully aerodynamic on my triathlon bike. Thanks to your excellent fitting skills, I finished first in my age category for the Draft Legal Duathlon and first for the Standard Duathlon.
Your attention to detail is second to none! Onto the World Championship in Australia 2024.
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!
