Once we have assessed the data compiled from your sessions with us, we can narrow down the number of suitable frames and suggest your perfect match.
The correct positioning on your bike is different for everyone, but we do look at the same contact points. Here’s a rundown of what we look for and why:
The main reason we look at the saddle is because everyone’s pelvises are different – males and females especially. There are various types of saddles including anatomical and non-anatomical, and cut-out saddles, plus many others that are different for the type of riding you do, for example, mountain biking, triathlon, time trial or road. They all have their own unique properties.
Handlebars aren’t made equally, they have different widths and drops. If your reach is too far away or close, low or high, or wide or narrow it can result in shoulder, neck, back or hand pain.
There is a massive debate on crank length in the industry, but in our bike-fitting analysis we look closely at a number factors to determine optimal length because if it’s not correct, it can put unnecessary pressure on your knees, back and hips.
It will all come down to your goals, your style of riding, hip width or stance, Q angle (relationship between hips and feet) and various other things. But we want to get this right for you so you don’t end up with overuse injuries and you are getting the most efficient ride every time.
