"I have been cycling for a long time but and in recent years have been so uncomfortable on my bike that I would dread it when someone asked me to go riding. I would google for ways to improve my geometry on the bike and, honestly, probably made things worse. After just a couple of hours spent with Tom for a fitting I now look forward to riding instead of dreading it. Absolutely worth the time and money!"
"To be honest, I was skeptical at first about paying money for a professional bike fit (Just watch YouTube, right?). Wrong. I finally decided to get fitted after buying my first “serious” road bike. This lead me to my next question, “Where to go for the fit?” There are other bike shops and fitters in the area, but for me Tom was the only logical choice. I had dealt with Tom on other occasions during my visits to Century Cycles (tune ups, merchandise purchase, stopping by to get that bike smell during cold winter days, etc.) and he always came across as very knowledgable and receptive. During the bike fit, he was all that and more. After about 90 minutes I knew more about my body (and bike) than ever before. This newfound information has definitely paid off during my time in the saddle – easier miles, less neck pain, and just more overall enjoyment. If you are trying to decide if a bike fit is worth it, then my answer is a definite “yes”. Especially if you make the WISE decision to see Tom!"
"After I bought my new bike last year I took it to Tom Wiseman for a professional fitting. Tom did an excellent job. He took the time to take all of the right measurements and understand my style of riding so he could fit the bike accordingly. No more numbness in the fingers or toes no more neck pain on long rides. Well worth the time and money."
"I had a full fitting done, and could not be more impressed with the knowledge and thoroughness of the work done. Staff was extremely helpful and informative."

"Before and after [...] my bike fitting, the differences are subtle but the effect is dramatic. It turns out my power transfer from feet to pedals was inefficient and that my old sizing wasn't allowing all my legs muscles to fire properly (no wonder I never felt like I was good at spinning!). Tom [in Medina] changed my stem 10 degrees, raised my seat and moved it forward, and spent a lot of time with inserts adjusting my cleats. I felt much better on my ride today (and understood a lot more of how slight position adjustment change the muscles I'm using) and I'm hoping it only gets better. I'm pretty sure it also made me skinnier; don't laugh, the pictures don't lie."

"Back in 2001, I had a bad accident on my road bike. From then on, I only felt comfortable riding my mountain bike. Even though I knew I could be faster on my road bike, I rode only my mountain bike all over the place -- roads and trails. Every time I tried to get on my road bike again, it just never felt right. Finally, working with Kevin [in Peninsula], we were able to get my road bike adjusted to fit me right. Now, I'm back in the saddle and love hitting the open road on a proper bicycle."
