    Fitting Services Information:

    Fitting Services is not based solely on numeric measurements, nor is it based on whiz-bang technology like video or laser scanners. Where lasers and computer-based measurement provide accurate data, they do not take a rider's issues of limitation, whether biomechanical or personal, into account. The fit system we use is based on what the client's body is capable of and what their desires are, not what a set of measurements says is the "best" position. A computer will not tell you where to move the handlebar, cleats, or saddle if the client is still not comfortable. Only an experienced fitter with a critical thinking mind and ear for listening to the client's feedback can do this effectively.

      Tom was recommended to me by another client. I found him to be a true expert in this field. He took his time, listened and shared his knowledge. His adjustments made all of the difference in my riding comfort and safety. I would highly recommend him – and have!

      I had struggled with discomfort for months, but after three hours of a fitting with Tom, I feel like I’m on a completely different bike. I’m riding comfortably and finally enjoying time on my bike. Tom is knowledgeable, professional, and thorough. I highly recommend his work!

      Tom Wiseman did very thorough fitting on my Felt road bike to prepare for my first full Ironman (2016 Wisconsin). He took almost 3 hours to do detailed assessment. Very patient and a great guy, best decision I have ever made before a race. Highly recomended!

      I heard about Tom through a colleague who recently had a bike fit done. All I heard were positive raves about his knowledge, advice, and how cool he is. When I decided to start training for my first Ironman, I turned to Tom for a first ever bike fit. He made me feel comfortable and explained everything I needed to know at a level that was easy to understand and remember. He was was quick to respond to my many e-mails and also fit me in for a few follow-up fits. He gave me plenty of training advice and motivation. He even let me borrow his own aerobars to see if I like them. It’s almost been a year since I had the fit and I’ve increased my FTP significantly and really enjoy riding my bike more than ever. He’s a true asset to the cycling community.

      Before I had a fitting with Tom, riding always left me sore and uncomfortable–especially during and after long rides. Now that my bike actually fits me properly, I feel great! Thanks 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 was really impressed with the thoroughness with which Tom approached the fitting process, taking precise anatomical measurements and applying these to the often minute adjustments he made to various components of my bike. He was obviously passionate about the importance getting things right. He always explained what he was doing and why, and was interested in my feedback about each change along the way. The result was a much-improved riding experience for me. My bike feels much more comfortable and natural than ever before. The time and money I invested in a truly professional fitting were well worth it!

      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!

      I have had 2 or 3 bike fits in the past but the one I had at Century Cycles with Tom was by far the best. Being a Physical Therapist, Tom addressed areas of imbalance and weaknesses that were never even brought up with other fittings. I am now more comfortable and can ride longer/faster then before.

      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!

      I became a bike enthusiast 2 years ago at which time I upped my mileage. I started experiencing a number of cycling injuries and pain. I had a custom fitting done at another shop with limited improvement. After a 3 hour session with Tom, I now ride pretty much pain free. Those 3 hours was the best investment of time and money I ever made. Thanks Tom!!

      Tom has fit me on two bikes. Takes time to figure out your style and makes your bike work for you. He does a great fit.

      I am 6’4″ tall and have a disproportionately short torso for my height. Tom Wiseman did an outstanding job fitting me on my new bicycle. I am a medical professional and I can say that Tom really knows his stuff when it comes to ergonomics and anatomy.

      I have been a long time customer of Century Cycles and have had annual bike fittings completed by Tom Wiseman. Simply put he ROCKS! Always patient and willing to listen and works with you until you are well fit for your bike. Tom also has been providing Coaching to me as well and my time on the bike has improved significantly!

      Tom does a great job or addressing your anatomical limitations and prepares the bike to fit your needs as a rider. I have been very happy with his ability to make modifications in even the smallest details like pedal angle to help with any hot spots that might arise from long days in the saddle. Very personable, knowledgable, and helpful.

      Seeing Tom Wiseman was THE best decision and $$ I have ever made for my cycling. A proper fit is a game changer, particularly for long ride. I especially appreciate the intimate one on one time and genuine concern and interest Tom provides.

      Tom is fantastic! Definitely knows his stuff. Spends a ton of time with you making sure everything is perfect. I never once felt rushed or as if he was just doing stuff to my bike for the sake of doing it. I even brought it back for a tweak after the initial fitting. The difference the fitting made in my comfort level is immeasurable. I wish I’d gone in sooner, I could have saved myself years of misery.
