Like centipedes or the judicial system, a bicycle relies on the synchronicity of its many parts. Find harmony with your ride with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a body-engineered road bike fitting at Rebound Cycle in Canmore (a $250 value).
Rebound Cycle's expert staff members fine-tune road bikes of all makes and models using skills acquired at regular training sessions with product factory-service technicians. In a 90-minute to 2-hour biomechanical fitting, a certified fitter studies cyclists and their two-wheeled steeds, making any needed adjustments to the latter in order to enhance rider performance, comfort, and wheelie-popping efficiency. After providing a riding history using shadow puppetry, clients undergo tests to determine range of motion, general flexibility, and individual riding style. Based on fitting findings, technicians tailor the components to the proper measurements, conducting essential adjustments to achieve the ideal fit.
Outfitted with a readapted ride and Rebound Cycle’s tips for a proper riding stance, cyclists can expect reductions in hypertension, scapular stressors, hand and foot numbness, and poorly choreographed victory dances. If special parts are needed for ride restructuring, patrons may purchase them at an additional cost. In addition to tune-ups for body and bike, Rebound Cycles proffers a gallery of Trek, Scott, and Giant bicycles, as well as apparel for fashionable pavement sailing.
Though its store is filled with helmets, bike parts, and riding accessories, Rebound Cycle aspires to be a classroom. Its bike-savvy staff members "strive to be educators, not suppliers"—according to the store's mission statement—as they set riders up with ideal wheels and rental gear for day trips down Legacy Trail. They place special emphasis on comfort through customized services; for example, they adjust cycle components to suit a customer's body type, range of motion, and prior injuries during two-hour bike fittings in their studio. In line with its educational mission and community spirit, the staff maintains a schedule of upcoming group rides and races, and composes online tutorials that cover common questions, such as how to select a safe seat.
Rebound Cycle sees its "students" off on fully assembled and test-ridden bikes from Giant, Trek, Niner, and other brands, often decked out with accessories including cup-holders and tire pumps. Staff members attend recurring training sessions with experts from various factories, ensuring that they can tune up or completely overhaul almost any cycle, even the types that they don't sell. An environmental-consciousness policy dictates that they recycle the cardboard, oil, and packing materials that pass through the locally owned shop.
