WHY GET A BICYCLE FITTING?

Time to buy that new bicycle? We simply cannot imagine buying a new bicycle without getting a professional bike fitting as part process.

Every bicycle that leaves our shop starts off with a bike fitting, whether you are a beginner just starting out or a hardened veteran looking for their next super bike, our bike fitting process ensures that the frameset and all the contact points are perfectly dialled in, even if it's an off-the-shelf bike from one of our mainstream brands then we will happily change whatever is necessary (handlebars, stem, seatpost, even saddle) to ensure the perfect fit.

Do you already own a bicycle and are not sure it is set up correctly? The investment you make in a bike fitting with us is the single best investment you can make in your cycling efficiency, comfort, performance, injury prevention and ultimately your enjoyment in the sport.

Continually we see shops forcing incorrect sized bicycles onto people and expecting the rider to accommodate the bike. The whole point of bike fitting is to turn that around – We get the bicycle to fit you, we will not only be able to tell you not only what type of bicycle suits you best but even model and brand. To do this we need to understand you, your body, your sporting history and your goals whether they be cycling or fitness in general. We also understand that the body does not exist in a vacuum – it is a dynamic process and you will gain or lose weight, fitness, core strength and flexibility over time. So a bike fitting needs to understand that your position may also evolve over time, we simply do not just create a bicycle that is perfect for your body now, we look for a bicycle that will be optimal in the future.
