Your body is an incredibly complex machine. Adopting the best biomechanical positioning for your body is critical to maximising your comfort and reducing your energy expenditure during those long days on the road. Cyclists also often suffer from ankle, knee, hip, and lower back discomfort, as well as recurring pain. A good fit resulting in the best body positioning helps and prevents such issues.

Your fitting will take up to 2 – 2.5 hours and includes:
- Physiological assessment – medical history/screening questionnaire – flexibility assessment (hamstring, glutes, quads, hip flexors, lower back, calves)
- Cleat fitting/pedal interface – a bike is completely symmetrical but humans are not! The cleat/pedal interface dictates your cycling biomechanics. Foot tilt, foot pressure/hot spots and cleat medial or lateral stance width are analysed and adjusted to maximise your power into the pedals and cycle stroke
- Adjustment – on the bike optimisation of saddle height/slide/angle, reach to the handlebars, angle of the handlebars and grip positioning.
- Pedal stroke scan and alignment – a full analysis of stroke alignment will be done with lasers
- Measurement – you will receive a full report via email of all before/after measurements and adjustments (if any) within 24 hours of bike fit
What you need to bring – please bring your bike/s, your shoes/cleats, and your wear your usual cycling shorts and other attire.
What to expect – bike fitting is done on your own bike/s using my Wahoo kickr static turbo trainer. It will take place in my ‘Cycling Cave’ located in Chalfont St Peter. I can also come to your home, office or other location with the right space requirements for a supplemental charge.
