  • I found Iain personable and professional, the bike fit was extremely thorough and each part was explained well to me. The bike fit changed my position significantly giving me a much greater leg stroke. The results were fantastic I can now produce more power for the same effort.

  • Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the work you did on the bike fit and adjustments for the handle bars. I was only able to get out on it this morning as I have been away on business all week and it is amazing, I have never felt so comfortable on a bike and the it just feels effortless to ride.

  • Earlier in the year I had my first ever fit on a bike with Iain at Chevin Cycles. I have now raced on it for an entire season with great results such as winning the Shrewsbury GP Elite Men's race and it all felt completely different in a very good way. The bike seemed to handle better and I could get more weight over the pedals to help generate power. This was done by bringing the whole position forwards and increasing the difference in height from the bars to the saddle, yet the position never felt strained. The position did take a little time to get used to as so much was moved, yet it didn't take long before it all felt natural. I would recommend anyone to have a bike fit with Iain Findlay as I have been very pleased with the results and have felt very well looked after throughout the whole ongoing process.

  • Just a quick message to say a big thank you for the great bike fit. Having bought my bike very close to Ironman Lanzarote I wasn’t left with much time to actually go out and do any very long rides. Thanks to the great bike fit, right down to the saddle (which has been a nightmare in the past) I was able to get straight onto the bike and within 3 weeks race the Ironman. Unlike previous years I didn’t get any backache during the whole ride which was amazing. Following on from the race I then had a several weeks of recovery before going on my Lands End to John O’Groats Ride. This was 920miles over 9 days. Again I didn’t get any back or saddle problems and probably more importantly no additional fatigue problems from a poor fit. Unlike my previous bikes, I actually get on my Boardman and smile to myself as how comfortable it is and also how fast it is. Thank you again, the good bike fit made all the difference. It’s just a shame I left it for 30 years before having one. I would strongly advise anyone and everyone to have a bike fit.

  • Good afternoon, many thanks for taking the time with me on 2nd August to complete the bike fit. The changes that you have made are all positive. I feel like I am riding a new bike! For the very first time I am properly aligned with the bike and the frame's responsiveness is impressive. I am undertaking my first sportive on Sunday since my crash. Whilst it is only 67 miles the ride will give me a real opportunity to fully assess my new riding position and overall performance. I will let you have a short report on the feel of the bike next week. As bike riders we spend thousands of pounds on equipment without necessarily ensuring that our bodies are correctly fitted to get the very best out of our bikes! In the short time I have been riding the bike since the bike fit the benefits are impressive. It may well be the best £120 I have ever spent on cycling. Your enthusiasm and genuine interest in bio-mechanic matters relating to cycling arising from your physics degree and experience as a racer made the whole bike fit experience enjoyable. A bike fit is essential for any cyclist!

  • If you are reading this then you are thinking about getting a bike fit at Chevin Cycles. You may have had a bike as a child and just raised the seat as you grew, that I guess was your first bike fit! But now your older and wiser and whether you are a serious cyclist or just wanting to recapture your youth then a bike fit is for you. Like me we go onto Google and raise or lower that seat again like we did as a child, we get the spirit level and plumb line from the garage and use the knee over pedal axel method and probably get it 75 to 85 percent right. If you are a serious cyclist a percentage improvement can mean instead of you hanging onto the peloton, you are in front of the peloton as you are riding efficiently. Cycling efficiently injury free with longevity is what all cyclists want. So, if you want to go from like riding your bike to love riding your bike, being able to climb those hills and not feel those pot hols quite so much then contact Iain at Chevin Cycles. I booked a 2 hour bike fit for £120.00. Me and my bike was made to feel very welcome by Iain, measurements from top to toe were taken and with lasers I had the bike fit. Recommendations were advised and taken up,( handlebar and chainset size was not compatible and were changed there and then) otherwise, what was the point of the bike fit! I was there for three 3 hours (we talked bikes!) and a email was sent to me with detailed measurements and the recommendations. I have been so impressed I have gone back to have bike fits on my other two bikes, this is for £35.00 each. Iain and Chevin Cycles will get you pretty close to a 100 percent correct bike fit, but should you feel not quite right once you hit the road then Iain is very accommodating to advise/make adjustments for you. But only you know your body and no bike fit is set in stone, so like me you may have to tweek a little for that extra 1 percent. And if you think £120 is expensive, ask yourself how much was your bike? how much was that fancy new cycle top? how much is pleasure in riding my bike? how long do I want to cycle for and most important how much is my long term health worth? I would strongly recommend anyone of any age of any level to have a bike fit with Iain at Chevin Cycles.
