This fit is aimed at those new to cycling but still gives you more than most. Since all our fits are based around the principles outlines in ‘Our Concept’ , you will still get a perfectly fitted ride tailored to you, your body and your injury history. It is often sufficient for those who are not yet “clipping-in” or just need a sense check on their body position. The shorter session will still allow us to look at all your contact points on the bike and make sure you don’t expose yourself to injuries as your cycling intensities and volume increases.
One Day Classic
By no means just for the Pro’s at all, the One Day Classic is the perfect session for cyclists of all levels who want to get the absolute most from their riding or address an issue they have been riding around with.
The One Day Classic is our most popular session. It generally takes around 2 Hours and gives us plenty of time to really get to know the rider, the problems they may have when riding and time to look into their biomechanics and movement patterns in order to help them get the most out of their position.
We spend the first part of the session taking a detailed history and examining any specific problems or symptoms which you may want/need to address. This allows us to build up a good picture of the rider, their goals, any aches and pains they may be suffering from and any medical or injury history they may have which might affect the position they achieve on the bike. After this we tend to work our way from bottom to top. Starting with the shoes and cleat position before getting the rider warmed up on the turbo trainer (or rollers for the more experienced) and working our way through the position using lots of slow motion HD video footage from different angles. During this process you will be receiving constant feedback on the things that we can see, why we are adjusting the things we are and any areas which we think can be worked on (movement disfunction etc.). We do all the normal adjustments you would expect from a bike fit, but then go one step further and help you improve the way you ride and interact with the bike as well as the ‘spannering’ of the bike itself. At the end we will also provide key measurements and statistics from the session and any recommendations for both the bike and the body.
With a decade of providing this service to our riders, we have unparalleled expertise to make sure you can ride more comfortably and more efficiently than ever.
The Grand Tour
This is our flagship session and provides levels of follow up and support we are really proud to be able to offer. Again this is not reserved for elite athletes but anyone who wants to get the absolute most from their cycling. This is a recommended session for a rider who has been struggling (often for years) with a particular pain or injury which has been spoiling their enjoyment of riding or performance in competition.
In addition to the One Day Classic session, we have time to go even more in-depth into the biomechanics of the rider and to look minutely at any small movements that should not be evident or areas that they can get more power from during pedalling.
The Grand Tour also includes a detailed pdf follow-up document containing all the recommendations and exercise details to help the rider continue to improve in the long term.
This session also includes an additional appointment for the fitter and rider to go out on the road for a ride. This is often extremely helpful in that it may allow us to see something which had previously not been evident when the rider was on the static turbo trainer. A climb or stint into a headwind can highlight a problem which wasn’t seen in the lab but that can be solved once we know about it. It is also an invaluable opportunity to see how you as a rider might be progressing with any exercises, or postural recommendations that have been made. We can then assess the effectiveness of these exercises or adapt them if needed to perfect the riding experience.
Time Trial / Triathlon Specific
A Time Trial or Triathlon specific fit to make the most of your fit, your biomechanics and your aerodynamics. We have a lot of experience getting people in the fastest position whatever the distance. There is a lot of variation possible depending on your flavour of torture whether it’s 10mile Time Trials or the 180km effort of an Ironman that you still need to run a marathon after completing!
Given the more complex nature of a TT/Tri setup and the bikes involved, these sessions invariably take a little longer so allow a good 3hrs for this session. During the session we will go through all the key elements that are part of all our sessions, helping the body and bike work in harmony whilst also optimising the aero advantages of the TT position, working within your flexibility and biomechanical restrictions to provide the best balance of power, position and muscle/energy management for the specific discipline in which you are competing.
Pre Purchase Session
incl decision making help!
We would also be glad to help you before you purchase a new bike whether it is your first or fifteenth bike. A preliminary session can allow us to get a good idea about your proportions, flexibility and history which could mean one bike and its geometry would suit you much better than another. After this session, we will stay in contact with you and you can email us with possible options you are considering and we will give you our advice as to which bike and size will be best for you.
Shoe & Cleat Setup
This service is included in both our Pro and Complete Pro Fit sessions, but it can also be of great benefit as a stand alone session. If you are happy with your position on your bike but feel that you have never been able to get comfortable in your shoes or are unhappy with your cleat position, this session is ideal for you.
Many of our riders have returned to us following Pro or Complete Pro Fit sessions when they have purchased new shoes or cleats just so we can make sure that the new equipment is just as perfectly set-up.
