Like a tailor modifies your suit, We can fit your bike
Why do I need a bike fit?
Are you looking for a more comfortable position? Want to achieve that aggressive racers stance? Suffering from aches and pains?
Our bike fitting is designed with you in mind, we look at your past, your present and your future ambitions to help you find the right sizing and position on the bike to achieve your goals .
What does a bike fit involve?
We sit down with you and discuss your previous riding experience, how long have you been riding and what sort of riding do you enjoy? We then move on to your current riding, do you suffer and aches or pains, what is it that brought you in for a bike fit? Finally we look at your ambitions, from completing an Ironman to simply riding 10 miles on a Saturday morning. We can work out how best to fit you to your bike.
Flexibility and natural posture are the keys to our fitting process. Your fitter will assess your range of motion in key areas, they will also observe how you naturally stand and support yourself. These details will allow them to assess areas that may need compensation on the bike and what positions will be achievable.
On Bike Assessment
Having assessed your flexibility, its time to get on the bike. We will take all the measurements from your current bike and translate these on to our Precision Fit Jig. This allows us to make small changes effortlessly, from bar width to crank length. We can adjust your position piece by piece until we have achieved the optimum fit. Combined with motion capture technology so both you and your fitter can see how each change is affecting your riding.
Recording and Translation
Your bike will then be set up for you according to your new dimensions, should you need new parts these will be discussed with you. You will also receive a full record of your fit results to apply to any other bikes you may have at home, or to use in future fits.
What do I need to bring to my fit?
When you come in for your fit we would ask that you bring
- Your current bike (or Bikes) that you would like us to fit you to
- A pair of cycle shorts
- The shoes that you wear on the bike.
We will take the pedals from your current bike to use on the jig.
It may also be worth bringing a water bottle.
