“Nick understands the thin balance of blending the science

and art of a bike-fit program to help participants from different backgrounds

and cultures sync in well. His hands-on exposure as a fitter and, importantly,

as an athlete, becomes a clear advantage to build confidence among

participants when navigating though the grey areas and complex issues.

Overall, Nick is a great coach and trainer, and an asset in the

Retül University resource pool.” – Retül University

We teach bike fitting to other bike fitters

Bike Fit Brisbane is one of only a few Retül educators in the world

There are only a handful of Retül University teachers in the world and Bike Fit Brisbane happens to have four of them – Nick Formosa, Aaron Lean, Helen Stark and Mark Watts. Together they teach other bike fitters from all over Australia and Asia the latest tools and technology when it comes to bike fitting.

The Retül University courses are carried out using the organisation’s protocols and it has a hands-on structure. Participants must be Retül members who have been approved by the organisation to become a Retül Certified Fitter.
