Do you want to enjoy your bike rides more?

Whether you are commuting everyday, enjoying a Sunday leisure ride a Bikefit can help you make the most of every ride. It will ensure you are in the best riding position for comfort, performance and injury prevention. Is your saddle holding you back? Your contact points are essential for getting the most out of your riding. Get your contact points dialed in and you will be more comfortable and have the opportunity to improve your performance and minimise long-term injuries.

 

Do you want more performance?

At your performance bike fitting session we assess your pedal efficiency and investigate changes in position that can make you go faster for the same effort. Every Shimano Pro rider uses Shimano Dynamic fitting to improve efficiency. Being Pro is not a simple as 'slaming the bars' riding as low as possible. Being effective in a position is crucial otherwise you will limit your muscle power available. Too lower means you are unstable and won't perform at your best. Contact points are critical to giving you that stable platform to perform. Is your set-up holding you back?

Do you have a specific problem to solve? 

We can arrange a joint session with our Physiotherapist Naomi from http://www.sportfitphysio.co.uk . To instantly tie Bikefitting and Physiotherapy together in one session provides great results.
