As a biomechanist/exercise physiologist, I perform many gait and motion analysis on numerous cyclists and multi-sport athletes. Many of their injuries are a result of an inadequate cycling mechanics and fit. When a bike fit is required, there is no one better at bike fitting and mechanics than Adam Baskin. Adam’s numerous certifications and fitting techniques make him one of the most sought after bike specialists in the nation. Additionally, Adam is a masters degree exercise physiologist and adds his expertise in the physiological adaptations necessary to allow the cyclist to perform at the highest level. Adam is part of my team of specialists I refer to when bike fits are part of the corrective cure for cyclists’ sports injury.

Adam has been bike fitting me for over 10 years. I’ve got two bad discs in my lower back, but I rarely (if ever) have back pain related to riding…no neck or knee pain for that matter. He’s very knowledgeable in anatomy and cycling equipment, and he combines that expertise with the real world needs and restrictions of his clients.

Working with Adam has been an absolute pleasure. No matter what bike or issue I have came to him with, he always had the right answers. Thanks to his expertise I’ve had pain free success and efficiency at the UCI level. I would highly recommend any level of cyclist to take the time and work with Adam because the proper fit is better than a new bike!

Adam Baskin is a highly competitive racer with a M.S. in Exercise Physiology. This background combined with his extensive experience makes him one of the very best! Adam has provided bike fitting services for me, my clients and friends for close to 10 years and I highly recommend him for anyone. Unlike many fitters, he actually understands what the numbers mean, how the body functions and the biophysical implications of positioning. In my opinion, a professional bike fit is the single most important thing in bike riding and Adam Baskin is a rock star when it comes to fitting.
Errol Kalayci, Competitive Triathlete and coach for LifeSport Coaching
Adam is one of those rare professionals who sees the Whole Picture.
He has kept at the forefront of the science of bike fitting & is skilled using all the
tools of the art. He is certain to be remembered as one of the best in this business.”
Will Sabatini, Master and Category 3 cyclist
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how pleased Justin and are with the outcome of our fittings. We both rode back to back Centuries this weekend. The first one we only stopped once at the halfway point and the second we rode non-stop with the lead group. We have NEVER ridden our bike this far and felt so good not only from a comfort stand point but also from a physical standpoint. I did not have ONE ache or pain, when previously I would have to push through the aches and pains that I thought were “just a part of cycling”. Justin did not encounter any of the knee pains he has been plagued with over the last few months and he also felt stronger and much more comfortable than before.
We both have no doubt the reason is from the excellent job you did fitting us properly to our bikes. I can not stress enough how I feel this was the best expenditure of monies in regards to our cycling EVER!

Adam Baskin has fit me on my last three Triathlon Race Bikes, dating back to 2005. As an Ironman Triathlete, I spend many hours at a time on my bike. With each new bike I have purchased I have focused not only on the latest technology but also making sure I get a professional bike fit. Minor seat, handlebar, and position adjustments can provide significant benefits over a 112 mile Ironman bike ride. These minor adjustments have also enabled me to transition from the bike to the run portion of my training and racing without any issues.

Adam was the first and only person I have ever trusted for my bike fit while I was a triathlete and now as a competitive cyclist. He listened and took into account the distances I was racing in relation to my comfort and fit on the bike while getting the most power possible.
BTW, I feel so much more comfortable and in control on my road bike. The difference is amazing. Can’t wait to see the difference when I race. Apresh.

I am grateful to Adam for helping me find the right saddle after several years of searching. His Bike Fit is bar none the best. He helped me find the best sized bike and set up my shoes, and put my mind at ease. He is always available for tweaks if necessary.
If only I had met him 10 years ago, I could have avoided so much misery and discomfort ! Thank-you Adam
Natasha Yaremczuk Professional Runner/Triathlete
Adam fit me twice. First for a bike I had. Second, for the dream bike I was going to buy. He watched me pedal. Measured me. Determined my flexibility. Adam figured out my Q-factor was wider than normal, and gave me the way to fix it. (Currently, I run custom Speedplay spindles; thanks Thijs @ OCW). Baskin’s bike fit is awesome!
If you want to be more comfortable and efficient on your bicycle, forgo the Assos bibs, put off that power meter purchase, and schedule a session with Adam!
Bill Pouzar President Daytona Beach Bicycle Club
About 2 years ago I had a nagging knee pain that came from cycling. Someone mentioned Adam and the Retul bike fitting. I researched the method and it convinced me to call Adam. Went to see him and Voila.. Knee issue was resolved and not only my pain went away but also my cycling speed came around.”

“Adam! I cannot believe how much your fit helped me! Rides I struggled with previously are much easier now and I am faster! I am just thrilled!! I’m telling my friends to get a fit with you! Yippee!!”
Just wanted to let you know my training ride yesterday went great and I’m much more comfortable already. Well, as comfortable as one can be doing 20 minutes thresh-hold intervals! New shoes are ordered too. Thanks again!
