What’s the best way to get my measurements?
The best way is to go to a professional bike fitting centre. They have the best equipment. They use video, laser techniques and special software. They don’t just look at your height and the size of your legs, but also your arms, your upper body and shoulder width. They also consider past injuries, muscle length, asymmetry, your flexibility, weight and your personal goals. All of these things will have an influence on the size and geometry of your own Jaegher. You can then upload the pdf of the fitting centre on our configurator. If you’re in the neighbourhood, you can also make an appointment with firstname.lastname@example.org to have your measurements taken in our workshop in Antwerp. We have measurements tools, the experience and it’s free.
Can Itake my own measurements?
You can, actually. There are websites that show you how, with forms, technical drawings, tutorials etcetera. But remember, we can only rely on what you give us, so if for some reason the data isn’t correct, we can’t of course be held responsible. So, because we really want you to enjoy every kilometre you ride on your Jaegher bike we recommend getting yourself measured up at a professional bike fitting centre.
Can I choose another colour than those in the configurator?
We like to think we have a pretty awesome range of colours, and we prefer to see Jaeghers on the road that we’re proud of. Of course we could let you choose a colour that goes with your 1992 jersey, but it’s not something we love doing and if we don’t agree with your choice, we may decide not to. If we do agree on a different colour, please note that there is a 30% supplement on painting outside the configurator. Make sure the colour you choose, is a specific RAL code, not just a sample or a ‘something along these lines’. If you are not pleased with the paint job, you’ll be charged with the cost of stripping and repainting..
Why should I choose made to measure instead of standard measurements?
If your own measurements are standard, then order a bike with standard measurements. But in our experience no two bodies are the same. Comfort and performance are always better when your bike fits your body.
Can I repaint my road bike?
It happens. Tastes evolve, minds change, paint can get damaged, or sometimes you just want to feel like you’re getting a new bike without losing the old one. It’s perfectly possible to strip your bike and have it repainted in new colours. It won’t have any negative effect on the performance of your frame whatsoever.
Can I buy a Jaegher without a Jaegher logo?
You should know the answer to that one. No.
Can I buy just a frame and a fork?
We are frame builders, so yes, of course you can buy a frame with a matching fork. And what’s more we’ll do the paintwork – including the stem – so you’ll have a perfect start to your own Jaegher.
Can I buy an unpainted frame?
Are there bike shops where I can choose my components and where they do the build and the maintenance.
We can’t expect everyone to come all the way to Ghent to have a screw tightened, so we’ve developed partnerships with the finest bike shops in the country and abroad for your parts choice, maintenance, tuning… They’ll build your Jaegher, and service it.
What about crank length? Stem length? Handlebar width?
It’s not a silly question. Your ride will depend in part on getting this right. If you have any doubts about what’s right for you, ask a professional bike fitting centre. They’ll be glad to help.
