Get The Right Fit!

December 1, 2016

Why have a bike fit?

If you have just acquired a new bike, or are developing aches or pains following a ride, then getting your bike setup checked, is one of the most important things you can do.

Why don’t you use a computer based system?

We want to get you as comfortable as possible on your bike, so you can safely develop and improve your riding. We feel that we can do that best by utilising our experience, not a computer. Our bike fits are performed to fit the bike to you, not to make you fit the bike! This is why all our fits are performed by a human, not a computer.

Will I need any adjustments to my fit in the future?

As your fitness level and style of riding improves and develops, it may be necessary to make adjustments over time. As a guarantee of our work, any adjustments that need to be done within the first 30 days of your fit, will be at no additional cost.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring your bike, bike shoes, pedals and appropriate cycling clothing.

It includes set up of seat height & position, handlebar height and head stem reach, adjustment of bike controls and set up of pedals and cleats. We also evaluate your riding style in both static and motion positions, referring back to video evidence to show you how your fit has developed.

Whilst you are on the trainer, we can also give you advice on how to get the best out of your bike and for those new to riding clipped in, we’ll give you the opportunity to practice and build up your confidence whilst on the trainer.

Pro Bike Fit – 2 hrs

For those looking to get everything possible from their road/TT bike, this is the fit for you. Performed by team member Tim, who has studied under the Queensland Academy of Sport coaching director and has been performing and enhancing fitting techniques since 1999.

Tim will begin by taking all the necessary anatomical measurements from your body, putting these into his biometric calculators and then taking this data to initially set up your bike. From here Tim will get you onto the stationery trainer and using his specialist measuring tools, extensive knowledge and experience he will adjust your bike to fit you perfectly and set it up to suit your riding needs.

Tim says “This fit will get you more powerful and comfortable on your bike with positive results guaranteed.  It’s the cheapest thing you can do to your bike with the biggest gain.”

At the end of the session, you will be provided with your new bike measurements for your own records.
