A WORLD CLASS
BIKE FITTING SERVICE
Bike Fit Studio, in West End, Brisbane, provides a world-class bike-fitting service for all types of cyclists - from athletes to people who just enjoy the benefits of regular riding. Having cyclists with high-level experience and expertise fit you correctly to your bike has many added benefits, but the most important is that we understand cycling, performance and bike-related injuries, and how easy they are to prevent.
We have many clients come in and see us with serious issues to their knees, ankles, back, shoulders and neck, plus hernias and discomfort and pain due to their saddle.
From a young age, Nick Formosa had a passion for bikes - and everything to do with them. It evolved from retail to coaching cyclists and athletes and then bike fitting before he founded Bike Fit Studio, Brisbane.
" I like to see people improving, whether it is in their ability to ride
better or faster, be more comfortable or experience better performance.
The business evolved from something I loved to do
myself and into what we do today "
NICK FORMOSA, BIKE FIT STUDIO FOUNDER
PEOPLE COME FROM ALL
OVER THE WORLD TO SEE US
We work with people all over Australia - and also have worldwide clients. We travel extensively for cycling races and have top-performing cyclists and athletes come to Brisbane especially to see us.
THE BIKE FIT STUDIO STORY
Since our beginning in 2009, our most major achievement has been getting cyclists bike fit, set up on their bikes correctly and helping them to realize their
goals and dreams. In our years of riding and racing experience we've noticed cyclists - whether professional or recreational - face three major problems:
Your bike set-up is causing you pain or does not feel optimal. You're not sure about where to start when it comes to purchasing a bike (what type of bike, size, crank length, handlebar width and saddle) or you're looking to get a new bike.
You're having ongoing (or new) issues with your bike and set-up,or you've just purchased a new bike.
" Our bike-fit clients come back time again because of these people
