Your fit will take place at The Bike Shop’s cental location at 801 11 Ave SW, in the upstairs fitting room.
Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes early so that your fitter can start promptly, and to ensure you get the full
benefit of your appointment time. If you are going to be late please call the store at (403) 264-0735 to
let us know. If you are more than 15 minutes late, we may have to reschedule to avoid overlapping
appointments.

Please bring your bicycle, pedals, shoes, a water bottle, and your normal cycling clothing to the fit.
Tighter fitting clothing allows more accurate measurement with our motion capture camera. If you have
more than one saddle or stem that you are considering, please bring those as well. Cyclists with
aerobars or integrated handlebars should bring any extra pieces or adapters they own to allow position
changes. Cyclists with full suspension mountain bikes should bring their normal clothing and gear they
will use on the trail including repair kits and full hydration packs, as weight affects suspension sag, and
thus saddle placement.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please email care@intrinsi.ca for more information

As a physiotherapist and experienced Retul-trained bike fitter, Spencer believes deeply in helping people get and stay active in a way that is meaningful to them. He is passionate about melding his medical training with the art and science of bicycle fitting to help clients enjoy cycling the way it’s meant to be enjoyed. He feels strongly that bike fitting knowledge needs to be combined with medical knowledge of the body to bring a truly holistic approach to the fit process.

As a lifelong competitive athlete in running and cycling, Spencer struggled early on with nagging injuries that affected his participation and enjoyment of sport. Discovering the science and theory behind movement and biomechanics naturally led him to a Bachelors of Kinesiology in Calgary, and then a Masters in Physiotherapy from the University of Alberta. He feels modern physiotherapy should pay more than lip service to its dedication to injury prevention, and to this end, he uses bike fitting as a powerful tool to prevent future injuries.

Spencer is frequently active in the cycling community and experienced in many cycling disciplines. Currently a Cat 3 road and cyclocross racer, he is also a single-speed commuter and weekend warrior on the mountain bike. He has cycle-toured across Canada, and completed other multi-week tours in Australia, New Zealand, and Arizona. Once a 15-minute 5k runner as a varsity athlete, he is currently making the inevitable transition to competing more in triathlon despite the necessary swim.
