Unless purchasing a new bike from us, then fitting takes place on the riders own existing bike. If you are at all unsure about what equipment to bring with you, contact us (there's a list on the FAQ page linked to above).

A fully adjustable fitting bike is available for "problem solving" issues (for instance experimentation with different length cranks.

Bike Sizing Consultation. 45mins - £50

 

Remove the risk of buying a bike that doesn’t fit. A service for riders seeking advice as to what frame geometry will be appropriate for them. This service is for cyclists in the process of purchasing a new bike and should be carried out prior to making a purchase to ensure that the bike has a geometry that offers enough range of sensible adjustment to be able to achieve a successful bike fit once the new bike is built and ready for riding. If purchasing a bike from us, this £50 fee is deducted from the price of your purchase. If purchasing your bike from elsewhere, the fee for this session can be deducted from the price of any future bike fit with us on the new bike.

What’s included?

  • Written recommendation of geometry requirements for any new bike purchased
  • Stem length, crank length and handlebar recommendations

Technologies Used?

  • Hand tool measurement with laser levels, digital spirit levels and goniometer
  • Leomo Inertial Measurement System
  • Fitting bike with adjustable frame geometry, stem length and angle, crank length and bar size

Recommend for the majority of riders who are looking to optimise their race position for comfort, aerodynamics and power output. This bike fit service looks at the every aspect of the triathlon or time trial riders anatomy, strength, flexibility and interaction with the bike. The process starts with a flexibility and lower limb anatomy assessment. The rider is then asked to ride in their current position and measurements taken from both sides to set a baseline and check for imbalances. Measurements are taken while riding at a constant power output to ensure consistency between measurement sets. All measurements taken can be viewed by both the rider and fitter during the fit process. BioRacer Aero is used to enable assessment of how bike adjustments and rider posture will alter aero performance. Live “drag” data is projected onto a screen visible to the rider so they can see immediate results of how changes in body positioning alter drag. Adjustments are then made based on judgements by the fitter and feedback from the rider followed by further measurements and adjustments as needed. Throughout the process the aim of each adjustment is explained. The adjustment/measurement process is repeated until the fitter confirms that the position sits within the recommended angle ranges and suits the riders body type, riding style, injury history and race goals and the rider is both comfortable and powerful.

What's included?

  • Detailed pre-fit assessment of rider anatomy, flexibility and stability. Recommendation of post fit exercises for strength and flexibility improvement.
  • Assessment of rider position and movement using Retül motion capture, Leomo Inertial Measurement System, BioRacer Aero software and gebioMized saddle pressure mapping
  • Adjustment of saddle height, tilt and fore/aft. Alternative saddle models can be trialled during the fit, but if you are sure you need a different saddle, please contact us by email prior to booking as additional time can be added to your appointment to allow for saddle selection
  • Handlebar positioning including stem length adjustment, bar rotation and position of grips (new stems are available if required at an additional cost)
  • Detailed cleat positioning including in the shoe and external wedging and leg length correction if necessary.
  • Half price cycle specific custom footbeds (although if you know you want footbeds, consider booking the Pro TT/Tri level fit or contact us in advance of your appointment to book some additional time)
  • Detailed report including flexibility assessment, aerodynamic report, rider motion, saddle pressure and measurement of final bike set up.

  • Retül 3D Motion Capture
