Bike Fit Studio’s initial bike-fitting session concentrates on removing any confusion in regards to what a bike should feel like when you're on it and getting back to the basics for the best fit. We look at your goals and riding history, as well as any injury considerations and biomechanical limitations.
You can’t put a price on performance, but you can ensure the bike you buy is the correct size and style, with the correct saddle, handlebars and crank length to suit your individual body type. Before you make a final purchase, the Bike Fit Studio team works through specific requirements for your needs and comfort.
If you already know your riding position from a Bike Fit Studio bike fitting, a Find My Frame consultation will help you select a new bike that fits like a glove. This consultation includes frame size and part sizes/styles. We can only use bike-fitting data from six months prior to this consultation as varied and multiple changes can occur.
Too often cyclists forget about their feet and it’s not until they are in pain that they give them any attention. By then it’s too late. The most common type of foot pain generally falls into two categories: hot spot/friction injuries and compressive injuries. Aligning the foot and making it a stable structure on the pedal is extremely important.
At Bike Fit Studio, in West End, Brisbane, we specialise in comfort. This is our priority when we fit cyclists to their bikes to leave you feeling confident and empowered. We have been bike fitting since 1992.
Whether you have an existing bike or are about to buy a new one, at Bike Fit Studio we use a sizing bike (Retül Müve) to recommend the appropriate size bike using 2-D and 3-D motion-caption technology.
We notice there are too many cyclists who aren’t fitted to their bike properly, but we fit and offer sizing recommendations for road bikes, time trial or triathlon-specific bikes, mountain and cross bikes.
DID YOU KNOW: We are educators for Retül University for Australasia (that is, we teach other bike fitters in Australia and Asia the art of bike fitting).
Nick Formosa and the Bike Fit Studio team are all extremely experienced cyclists with a combined total expertise of at least 75 years’ in triathlon, mountain bike riding, road riding and racing and coaching – all around the world. Cycling is ingrained in our lives. We live and breathe it.
We like things done well. Using a combination of art (that’s our experience) and science (that’s motion-capture technology and other systems) we optimise your bike to fit you properly.
We understand the specific technical aspects when it comes to bike fitting, but we also understand the science of the how the body works and how you should be fitted correctly so comfort is at its highest level.
