SizeMyBike by La Pomme Chez Vous app is designed to help you tailor the perfect bicycle according to your riding style, surrounding environment, and body dimensions. This helps to provide a bike-fitting service that would ordinarily cost upwards of $100. It was updated on May 15, 2013. The app is available in French, English, and Spanish.
With this app, you can enter the dimensions of your body including your height, torso, inseam, and arms, in order to determine which will be the proper-sized bike for you. You can customize and tailor your bicycle further by choosing from three types of bike fitting: comfort, performance, and urban.
Mountain bike fitting is also expertly catered for in SizeMyBike, which enables you to choose among Xcountry, All Mountain, or 29er. There are loads of variables from which to choose, including the top-tube length, saddle height, frame size, and much more. These factors will all ultimately determine which one is the right model for you.
Once you’ve found your perfect bike design, you can save all the relevant data to make sure you don’t lose your customizations. SizeMyBike also enables multiple users to save their preferences so you can kit out your friends too.
All the data saved can be imported or exported via iTunes, and you can also share your measurements via social networking sites or email. You can even print directly from your iPhone by using AirPrint.
The latest update included the addition of two new bikes, the MTB 29er and the Urban. The update also included the integration of social networking and added various sizes for MTB frames. The developer also introduced iPhone 5 optimization and various minor bug fixes.
Customer Ratings and Feedback Comments
SizeMyBike currently has nine customer ratings with an average rating of four out of five stars.
Customer feedback has generally been very positive, with one user commenting that this app is great for knowing where his or her position is. Another user remarked that it would be preferable to have entry available in inches so hopefully we will see the developer respond accordingly and include this in a future update.
Personal Comments by Reviewer
While I imagine it can be very useful to benefit from the personal touch of actually attending a professional bike fitting, I am very impressed with SizeMyBike and think that it will serve as a great replacement or stand-in for the real thing when you either can't get to a bike shop or don't have the cash on hand.
Everything you need is here and the number of different variables you can adjust is simply fantastic, covering everything you could possibly think of when sizing up for a new bicycle.
