Forget what you know. Our new, state-of-the-art GURU Dynamic Fit Unit (DFU) bike fitting system delivers precise, on-the-fly measurements that we transfer to your existing bicycle, or–better yet–to your dream ride-to-be. Our bike fits are based on many different metrics with one goal in mind: to get you comfortable, efficient and having fun on your bike again. We’ve fit Olympians and pro cyclists from the Cannondale Factory Racing, Kona, Trek VW, and Saunier Douval teams. But we’ve also fit commuters, juniors, and recovering paraplegics. Everyone is different, but we all deserve to be comfortable and efficient on our bike.
Bowen Sports Performance is home to one of only two GURU fit units in the state of Oregon, and our fitters are certified by the GURU Academy to use this incredibly versatile bike fit machine to determine your perfect, most current fit. Instead of using your existing bicycle to do a retroactive bike fit, we have the ability to start with the fresh slate the GURU fit unit provides, ultimately telling us which bikes and frame sizes work best for you.
We strongly encourage you to invest in our Pre-Fit prior to buying a bicycle. Typically, eager to purchase a new bike frame, we choose one based on its reputation or reviews by the media. We either choose the frame size we’ve always ridden, or use our best guess to pick one. With our GURU Dynamic Fit Unit, we can determine your current best bike fit, before you purchase your new bike. And with more than 10,000 bike frames in the GURU system, and new frames being added all the time, you’re sure to find multiple options for a bicycle that will fit you perfectly. Even better? A Bowen Pre-Fit is only $100, and we’ll credit $100 toward your Optimal Fit, saving you 30%, after you take possession of your new bike.

Our Optimal Fit is a comprehensive professional bike fit like no other. A Bowen Sports Performance Optimal Bike Fit begins with a complete body assessment, where we carefully consider flexibility, strength, body discrepancies and previous injuries. Many problems we’re able to diagnose during this stage of the fit, like forefoot varus, may explain pain experienced on the bike, and help us provide a solution. We then look at you on your current bicycle and evaluate your position, any discomfort and variances.
Next we put you on the GURU Dynamic Fit Unit (DFU) to compare and contrast different positions to determine which is best for you. We can even use automated incline and decline movements to simulate changes in terrain, giving you the ability to test your riding position while climbing and descending.
Finally, we transfer the data from the fit to your bicycle, making adjustments and then gauging your comfort. Adjustments we specifically target include (but are not limited to):
