" I went on my first ride today since my fit with John, and wow! It was like a completely different bike. My shoulders felt so relaxed, zero numbness in my hands and I felt like I could pedal with more power. Also, my hands automatically went to the “right spot” on my handlebars…I didn’t realize that I had to adjust so much to try to get in the right position. It was a short ride with some rollers-I’m sure I’ll discover more goodness as I ride more. I can’t wait for my next good climb!
John is so knowledgeable and is so comfortable to work with. If you ride a bike, I highly recommend a fit!
Thanks again!"


"We recently moved to Hoover and I was in need of a triathlon bike fit. After doing a little research I was given John’s name at Cahaba. I’ve had 4 previous fittings over the years and the one I received from John was by far the best ever! He took his time, measured everything in the bike and also me. He knew I had been in a lot of pain in the saddle, so making the many adjustments prior to me getting back on the bike was super helpful. I’m now able to ride for hours and not be in pain, it’s been a night and day difference! I’m forever grateful for his knowledge and willing to help others! Now I can crush Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga - thanks John!!"


"I went through the full bike fitting process with John Karrach today and I’m completely blown away. If you’re thinking of spending any significant time on pretty much any quality bike that you’ve invested money into (mountain, road, gravel) it is a no brainer to get that bike fitted to your body size, shape, and movement. It’s like buying a fine suit or beautiful wedding dress but not having it tailored to fit your body. Sure, it will function as clothes, but it will never perform for you the way it’s supposed to. John is part consummate professional, part wizard. Do this. Cahaba Cycles, all locations I’ve been to have always been on point, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and professional."


"Went in for a bike fit with John Karrasch.  The staff is super friendly, the store is very nice inside. There is even a great coffee shop in the store. They are well stocked with clothing, bikes, and accessories.  So grab a cappuccino and do some shopping.
Oh and John is an EXCELLENT bike fitter. He is meticulous and my bike feels better than brand new!"


"Great staff! John Kareasch did my professional fitting on new S-Works road bike. Very detailed and meticulous, got me dialed in . On checkout, all associates thank me for the business. 100% satisfaction for this customer and will be a repeat one!"


"Had a bike fit with John and cant say enough how great I feel on my bike now! The first ride out I had an avg speed .6 higher than ever!  The shop is stocked well, has everything a cyclist would ever need. Everyone was super nice and helpful, even the ladies in the cafe. Thank you!"


"Highly recommend purchasing your next bike at Cahaba and getting a bike fit from John. It’s a great customer experience and it’s worth the money to get the bike properly setup."

"Update - new bike and would not trust anyone else to fit me on it. John is the man!"


"Worked with John Karrasch on getting comfortable on my gravel bike. He spent a lot of time with me and made some great changes. He is also working with a bike builder I am thinking of using. Great guy and well worth the investment!"
