A professional bike fit is a seriously smart investment for anyone who plans on spending any length of time riding a bicycle. It will markedly improve the quality of that riding time - in both comfort and performance. A bike fit is far from a commodity though - the best quality bike fitting experience comes with the help of a fitting specialist with superior experience, education, and technology. Before choosing your fitter, be sure to carefully review their qualifications.
Our lead fitter Mitch Graham has over 15 years experience in professional bike fitting and is one of the most experienced and accredited in the country. From Wisconsin to Colorado to New England, Mitch has attended top bike fit academies receiving extensive direct training and critique from world-best bike fitters Todd Carver, Mat Steinmetz, Dan Empfield, Ivan O'Gorman, John Dennis among others. He has earned nine current bike fitting certifications: IBFI (International Bike Fitting Institute) Level 3, Retul University Master Fitter (highest level),Retul University Level 1, Retul University Level 2 Advanced, FIST (Fit Institute Slowtwitch), GURU Academy Level 1, GURU Academy Level 2 Advanced (highest level), Waterford and FitKit. Additionally, Mitch has fitted thousands of road cyclists, triathletes, time trialists, mountain bikers and cyclocross racers and regularly pulls them in from up to 6 hour travel distance. This experience, schooling, and technology has earned him an IBFI Level 3 Certification - a international certification reserved for fitters at the top of their profession, among the best in the world - with the highest knowledge base expected of a bike fitter. Aside from schooling, valuable education comes from clients - each fitting is a lesson for the bike fitter and the 300+ clients Mitch works with each year helps him continually refine and makes him one of the Midwest's busiest bike fitters.
As an athlete, Mitch started his career as a runner, setting 3 high school records in cross country and track at Weedsport High School in upstate NY, and then going on to set the cross country 8000m collegiate record at Xavier University. With injuries curtailing his running career, he transitioned over first to triathlon, then later to mountain bike, road and cyclocross. After 5 years of steady progression, he went on to win elite regional events in road, cyclocross, and mountain bike—his biggest wins occurring at the solo 24 hrs of Seven Springs, PA mountain bike event and Ault Park Criterium A race (AKA Wednesday Night Worlds) where he won both in the same week. Now retired from competition and never satisfied with just being mediocre, he focuses on continually improving his craft and therefore better supporting his clients and their goals.
