On average,  85% of all bicyclists experience some form of knee, back, neck/shoulder, and/or saddle pain when riding. Despite this fact, most riders assume it’s just part of riding a bike and suffer through it, hoping their symptoms will just go away. 

We’re here to tell you that riding a bike can and should be pain-freeand since 2012 have been helped thousands of cyclists ride with more comfort, power and general enjoyment on the bike.  The first step begins with a properly tailored bike fit and cycling assessment.

 Testimonials:

“. . . I love my bike and will have him fit me to any bike I ever own. Small problems in your bike fit can add up to lots of discomfort over time- I really feel more people would be riding more often if they had their bikes precisely adjusted to their bodies. Worth every penny.”

–Madeleine H     Portland, OR


“I’ve ridden for years and have always thought I could adjust my bike according to tips from friends and reading from various resources. After years and years of cobbling together my bike fit, I went to Pedal PT. Kevin was really helpful and worked with me on my what my goals are for the specific bike. I’ve waited about a month to write the review. . . I wanted to make sure the fit had worked.

I’ve done several rides that range from commuting a few miles to work to doing a century. The bike feels great. I would highly recommend Pedal PT for bike fits ranging from racing to commuting.”

–Rawls M.   Portland, OR


“I’m really glad I came into Pedal PT for a bike fitting. My neck, shoulders, arms, and upper back would ache every time I got on my bike, but I didn’t know why. Kevin made a few adjustments to my seat and handlebar position that made a huge difference.

Everything feels much better now. Time and money well spent.”

–Robert S.    Portland, OR


“Great experience. The clinic is in a great location and walking in you will immediately be impressed. The staff is extremely friendly. Kevin is very professional and knowledgable. After doing a biomechanical assessment I then got on my bike. Fitting was precise and advanced. I have had many bike fits in the years of racing and Kevin’s work is great. Extremely satisfied with everything and am happy to spread the word. Thanks.”

— Tim M   Portland, OR


“Having injured my knees while bike touring the West Coast, I thought the only solution was to return home [to the UK] – however Kevin at Pedal PT saved my tour and I can’t thank him, or recommend Pedal PT more highly.”

–Rupert S.   Abthorpe, UK

    —>Bike Fit Success Stories

What makes a Pedal PT bike fitting different?

Let’s face it, a bicycle is a fairly simple, adjustable machine, and anyone with a set of Allen wrenches and a goniometer can “do bike fitting”.  Many times, the ‘big box’ shops have poorly trained, inexperienced fitters driven by commission and up-selling of equipment, so buyer beware!

The human body however, is a much more complicated system of muscles, nerves, tendons and joints and each one of us is 100% unique. It is with this uniqueness that we feel that the best bike fit service is one that relies on the comprehensive understanding of your body, and true cause of your cycling symptoms. We are medical clinicians first and foremost, with over 14 years hands-on experience, helping thousands of cyclists over the years.   

“The bike is adjustable, and the human body is adaptable. The art and science of Bike Fitting utilizes the knowledge of both for an optimal outcome.”

As specialized Physical Therapists for cyclists, we’re in the ‘body business’ first, and not the ‘bike business’.  Always remember that fancy, expensive bike-fit tools are still just tools. . . and only as good as the individual using them.

Our office has worked with cyclists of all levels, including road, race, touring, cyclocross, Randonneur, tandems, recumbents, and even a hand-bike or two. Being located on a busy bike greenway has also allowed us see a great number of commuters, e-bikes, cargo bikes, folding bikes, delivery bikes too.
