Whether you're a casual rider or an elite racer, a correct fit could add comfort, control and performance to every ride. A new bicycle shop called Roll was opened at 2163 N. Clybourn in Chicago last week. Besides a big collection of top bikes and gear, the 4300sqft (399sqm) shop is also equipped with a 3D body scanner.

The body scanner, named Roll: Perfect Fit, takes a complete body geometry scan of the cyclist using cameras and lasers and creates a geometric skeletal rendering of the body. Body dimensions can be quickly and objectively determined based on the obtained 3D data. The software then converts the data into a customer profile for optimum adaptation of the bike.

By adjusting the contact points (pedals, seat, handlebars etc) the staff can provide customers with customized products for riding with max comfort. The system is not the same as those airport scanners, so you don't have worry about radiation exposure.

In the WGN's video below, owner Stuart Hunter demonstrates the process of 3D body scanner to help customers to find the right bike in the right size.
