Another incredible Orbea MyO custom Ordu being rolled out at SPORTFIT LAB! Orbea’s MyO program lets your imagination run wild, with thousands of color combinations, component selections, and even your name custom-painted onto the frame. This baby is all in, with Dura Ace Di2 electronic shifting, Vision Metron integrated carbon aerobar system, Rotor Flow crankset, and Power2Max dual power meters (check out the red accents on the crank spider!). With Guru pre-fitting already done, this bike is ready for pickup and final adjustments. We are still delivering road, triathlon, gravel and e-bikes, with proper precautions and social distancing in effect.
Wow — what a bike! The latest triathlon build from SPORTFIT LAB, this Ceepo Viper-R has all the bells and whistles: Di2 electronic shifting, Profile Aeria cockpit with Aeria hydration system, built-in aero tool and bento boxes, XLab rear hydration Super Wing, HED Jet Plus aero wheels, Stages power meter, and revolutionary VO2 saddle. We love our Ceepo bikes — Ceepo does ONLY triathlon, so they are laser-focused on aerodynamics, speed, and long-distance comfort. We pre-fit for all bikes at our lab, then order/build each bike to match your every desire.
COVID-19 UPDATE: as of March 25th, we will be open during limited hours and ask that you call ahead for an appointment. As a retail business that serves the public, we are permitted to remain open, but must adhere to the 10-person limit as well as social distancing at all times. We understand that, for many people, cycling and exercise will be an important part of their lives during this crisis. We remain ready to serve you with essential needs such as bike maintenance, essential bike gear, indoor training gear, and bike fitting to prevent injury. However, we will be strict about maintaining Virginia and national guidelines for cleanliness and social distancing. As a small shop, we have never had more than 4-5 customers in our shop at once. However, we would like to minimize any potential for disease transmission. Therefore, we ask that you call or email us before visiting, so we can properly prepare.
Thank you for supporting us during this difficult time. We have a full range of cycling products for shipping or pick-up, and the nation's largest selection of bicycle test saddles -- which can be ordered online and received by mail.
Stay healthy and keep your families safe!
At Sportfit Lab, our first concern is the health and safety of our clients, customers, families, and community. Like everyone, we are monitoring the situation with Coronavirus and CoVid-19 to make sure we prioritize health and safety above all. As a small bike fitting studio and triathlon performance shop, we work with only 1-5 clients per day, with almost no walk-in traffic. We have already adopted additional measures to ensure cleanliness in our studio and lab: we are now performing bike fitting with gloves; clean all touched surfaces with disinfectant after each client; and make soap, disinfectant wipes, and hand sanitizer available to every client entering our studio. Currently, with very few confirmed cases of CoVid-19 in our area, we plan to maintain our normal working hours; but we will reassess daily, based on local developments and recommendations from local, state, and federal governments. Please check our website or Google for daily updates to our schedule.
We ask that every client and customer assess their own risk and act accordingly. If you are uncomfortable keeping your appointment for service, please let us know and feel free to postpone without penalty. If you may have been exposed to the Coronavirus, or are exhibiting cold-like or flu-like symptoms, we ask that you postpone your visit to help protect our families, clients, and community.
This is a time for all of us to work together as neighbors and citizens, so we can weather this pandemic with reduced risk of serious illness or death. Don't panic, but be prudent and remember that elderly or weak individuals may be at higher risk for serious illness or death. It is incumbent on all of us to protect them as best we can. Above all, remember that the lives and health of all of us outweigh all other considerations: please be patient, kind, and willing to pull together in our common time of need.

So, you think you have worries riding your bikes? Yesterday we were in Phuket; today I met a Phuket bike fitter at our #IBFIASIA conference in Bangkok. He told me about Monkey Hill, where there is a hill with a 20% grade — and where monkeys will literally JUMP ON YOUR BACK while riding, steal any food from your jersey pockets, slap you in the head, and run away! Oh, and they also have feral dogs all over the island. Next time you’re complaining about climbing a hill, think about the Thai cyclists in Phuket....
OH MY GOODNESS -- is all we can say about the new Orbea Orca OMX race bike. Orbea has gone all in, making the Orca lighter and more aerodynamic at the same time, with completely internal cable routing. Maybe best of all, this bike is fully customizable -- at no extra charge -- with the coolest paint schemes ever devised in the Orbea MyO program. The Orca just won stage 11 of the Vuelta Espana, but this bike can be yours starting at $4999. Get it with Ultegra, Di2, or SRAM eTAP AXS 12-speed shifting; and your choice of crankset, saddle, and wheels. Contact us to order yours today, or schedule your GURU pre-fitting at the Lab: http://www.sportfit-lab.com/bike-fitting.html.
From Dream to Reality — that’s how we fit and build bikes at SPORTFIT LAB. This latest build is the beautiful new Orbea Orca, custom painted in Orbea’s MyO program. This is Orbea’s lightest pro level road bike, with new SRAM Red eTap AXS 12-speed wireless electronic shifting and DT Swiss Dicut carbon wheels. From the Basque Country, Orbea has been building race bikes for over 100 years. With MyO, you can choose your colors at NO extra charge, as well as your preferred components for road, triathlon, mountain, or gravel bikes. At Sportfit Lab, we are unique in taking a fit-first approach to building and selling bikes. We start with our GURU Dynamic Fit Unit, then help you select brand, model, and components to ensure perfect fit, desired speed, and all-day comfort. We finish by dialing in your fit to perfection, so your new bike feels like part of your body from the first ride. Whether you’re looking for your first “real” road bike or a dream bike for training and racing, start your journey at SPORTFIT LAB.
Lots of Sportfit Lab speed today at the Fort Ritchie triathlon in Maryland. Kudos to Amy Subar, finishing second overall female at age 60+ on her custom Orbea Ordu, expertly fitted and equipped (new HED wheels!) by Sportfit Lab. Likewise, Coach Beth Baumgarten rode her custom Ordu with Enve wheels to an age group victory. Call Sportfit Lab to talk about fitting your Tri bike, or pre-fitting for a new bike. We fit all brands, and offer special pricing on awesome bikes from Orbea, Ventum, Ceepo, Fuji, Garneau, and Ridley.
Good quick summary of road bike aerodynamics.
Why do triathlon coaches trust us for bike fitting? Because they know that real fitting takes expertise, education, experience and the application of cycling science. This coach was fitted for 2019, and just completed Virginia 70.3 in a PR of 4:47, with a bike leg a full 30 minutes faster than his previous best. At SPORTFIT LAB, we back up our bike fitting with successful results — whether fitting for comfort, speed, or overall efficiency. Book online at http://www.sportfit-lab.com/bike-fitting.html.

Another beautiful Orbea Custom MyO Ordu from Sportfit Lab. This Di2 equipped aero machine features the new Vision Metron integrated cockpit with Snakebite Stem. Look for this awesome athlete to podium at national championships with her fastest bike split ever! You too can be pre-fitted for a custom Orbea and choose your colors and components for NO EXTRA CHARGE.
We are dedicated to bike fitting at its finest, for athletes of all shapes and sizes. When you’re 6’4” and long legged, fitting onto a Tri bike can be a challenge. This aspiring athlete was miserable: sitting 3” too low, sliding off an uncomfortable saddle, and unable to stay on his aerobars for longer than 10 minutes. With a new ISM saddle, proper seat and aerobar positioning, and cleat adjustments, he discovered new comfort and power in the aero position. Another cyclist transformed from pretender to contender!
We love our custom Orbea Ordu Tri bikes at www.sportfit-lab.com. When you spend your hard-earned cash on a race bike, why shouldn’t it express your personality and love of the sport — and Orbea does it FREE! Just as important, we can help you customize the components to give you perfect fit and the best value.
