What Is Bike Fitting?

The goal of a bike fit is to achieve perfect harmony between bike and rider. Understanding the relationship between the contact points of the rider and their bicycle is fundamental to ensuring maxinum efficiency. It is important to assess you on an individual basis to determine your perfect riding position. This makes the interview and assessment stages a key part of the fitting process as it enables us to establish your riding goals and objectives

The Process


The interview allows us to gain an understanding of your riding background and structure what we are trying to achieve throughout the session. It is also a great opportunity to set your goals and aspirations for the year ahead.

Off The Bike Assessments

The Measurements are taken from the bike to give us an idea of your current abilitys and highlight and constraints you may have. Armed with this information we can then begin the determine the optimal position for you at present. We will help you identify and address any limitations you may have, allowing us to improve your position.

On The Bike Adjustments

Once we know where your capabilities lie, it is a case of adjusting the bike to get you to realise your ideal position. Whilst riding on a static trainer we adjust the arrangement of the contact points on your bike, resulting in a position with which you can interact more efficiently.

Report & Review

At Chevin Cycles we pride ourselves on the quality of our post fit service. Included in every fit (excludes bike setup) is access to your detailed fit report, with optional photo and video analysis. We also make it our aim to provide clients with continued long term support, through exercise and coaching programs to achieve their goals.

Bike Setup With Motion Capture

Designed to bring your bike to a good starting position. Cleats will be adjusted on your shoes to ensure they are set in a safe position and the bike will be adjusted to bring you to a comfortable riding position. This setup puts the bike into a turbo trainer and goes into much more depth than is possible on the shop floor alone as the staff can observe you much more objectively on the bike.
Time Taken: 1 Hour
Ideal For: Someone new to road cycling who wants advice on how the bike should be set up.

Bike Setup With Inclusive Report

This fit mirrors the Bike Setup but you will be issued with a written report that includes all the changes made, videos and any advice.
Time Taken: 1 Hour
Ideal For: Someone new to road cycling who wants advice on how the bike should be set up and who would benefit from seeing all the changes made in a written report.

Precision Fit with Motion Capture

Using the same process as Chevin Cycles Precision Fit, motion capture cameras allows us to get a more in depth view of the rider on the bike. We can slow down and freeze the rider in certain positions in the recordings to take measurements effectively as you ride. This means we can get the most accurate measurements possible and hence a better fit! It also helps us in showing you where improvements can be made in riding technique as you can see yourself riding! The videos will be included in your report for you to keep and download.
Time Taken: 2 to 3 hours
Ideal For: Someone who wants to improve their riding as well as their bike position. The motion capture really lets us show you where little changes by you on the bike will help make noticeable improvements on the road!

Pro Precision Fit

The next level in fitting this fit utilizes a Purely Custom Fitting Jig to allow us to set the rider to their completely ideal position. Not inhibited by the bike frame itself, the fit jig allows us to get you position dialled in to the nearest millimetre. Again motion tracking allows us to fully view you riding and help you see ways you can improve your technique on the bike. Once we have obtained this ideal position the fitter will then get this transferred straight onto your bike making any adjustments as necessary to get the bike as close as possible to this ideal position.
Time Taken: 3-4 hours (including measurement transfer)
Ideal For: Someone who wants to see exactly where they should be riding, not just where their bike can let them get to. This is particularly useful for anyone looking at a new bike and wanting to determine which frame size and geometry will suit them best.
