Our Bike Fitting Process
Step One

Adjust Cleats

Often overlooked, cleat position is crucial to your bike position. As well as ensuring your contact point with the pedals themselves is right the position of your cleats then have a knock on effect to every other part of the bike. Cleats can often be the culprit for aches and pains much higher up!

Step Two

Adjust Position

The title pretty much says it, this step involves adjusting the bike and components to allow you to sit in the position we have ascertained is correct for you. This involves adjusting current positions of parts as well as using our demo products on your bike to decide on correct sizing for components you may need to bring the bike to the ideal setup.

Step Three

Motion Capture

Using high speed cameras placed around you on the bike we can analyse in fine detail your movements on the bike and pedalling technique. We can slow down and stop the recordings to take measurements from you whilst you're riding and give us an incredible accuracy in checking your position matches that which we would like you to be in. You will also get copies of some of this video as part of your report.

Step Four

Fitting Jig

A fitting jig is a tool used by a fitter to allow the ideal bike position to be determined. It means during the fit we are not constrained by the dimensions of a bikes frame and do not have to spend time changing parts to see how they alter the position. It also allows the position to be altered whilst riding to give a much easier comparison for the rider between changes in position.

Step Five

Free One Hour Follow Up

Your free one hour follow ups allow us to reassess things and check up that everything is as it should be on the bike after your fit. Bike fitting is an ongoing process. We will get you to your ideal position on the day of your fit, but over the course of time you and your body will change. You will get stronger/weaker on the bike, more/less flexible, your cycling goals and aims will change; the list goes on. So the version of you in a year's time will not necessarily require the same bike position. We usually recommend you contact us to arrange this after about 3 months.

Step Six

Free Parts Fitting

Provided you purchase the recommended components from us on or within 3 months of your fit your fitter will arrange a time with you to get these fitted and record your updated position.

Step Seven

They will then type up your report including assessment scores, angles of you on the bike, a detailed description of what had been done, recommendations for things to work on before your follow up and also the exact measurements of your bike both before and after your fit.
