Cruzbike Fit and Adjustment

Proper fit on a Cruzbike will greatly enhance your riding experience, optimizing both comfort and performance.  We've put together tips for Cruzbike fit and adjustment here that will help you get started. Reach out to anytime if you have questions along the way. We also have a great blog post here with a very helpful fitment chart.

Begin with a great initial fit by following the guidelines below.

Then fine tune your fit as you ride. You'll find your preferences change as you get more and more comfortable on the bike.

Arm bend

Headrest position

Set your S40 or V20 headrest to a position that feels great to you. Be sure to wear your helmet during adjustments so you get it just right. The Suspension Adjustable Headrest and Performance Adjustable Headrest offer even more adjustment, if you find you need it.

Tip: Sometimes adding a bit of extra foam to the headrest is all you need. We've included extra foam for you in the box, just in case. As with all other fit adjustments, a little at a time is key.

Seat angle

The T50 and Q45 have adjustable seat back angles. Set your Q45 or T50 seat back to a position that feels comfortable to you as you settle into the seat of the bike. You can adjust it later as you get more and more comfortable on your Cruzbike.

Tip: Changing the seat angle impacts reach to the pedals and handlebars, so you may need to make adjustments to those if you change your seat angle.

Seat comfort

Fine tuning fit can take time. But soon you will be dialed in for the ultimate ride.

Here are three rules to follow while you fine tune your fit: 1. Make small adjustments. 2. Make only one or two adjustments at a time. 3. Ride a good 5 to 10 miles to really get a feel for the adjustment.
