Bike Fit

Unlocking Your Next Level Of Performance

Here at Pedalworks, we take fitting as seriously as you do. We combine considerable staff expertise with state of the art, computer-assisted diagnostics to tailor frame choice, touch points and cycling dynamics to your requirements. At Pedalworks we have a wide range of market-leading bike brands and component brands, we can always help you source the combination of geometry, specification and riding position that is right for you and refine key components like handlebars and saddles quickly and conveniently.

Why make it fit-first?

Riding a bike seems so intuitive. You just swing your leg over and go. But no experienced cyclist rides without a personal assessment and a bike fitting that is entirely customised – to their body, flexibility and strength, their riding experience and goals. They’ve learned it’s a non-negotiable.

Without a fit, it’s very likely you’re leaving barriers between you and your best performance. Worse, you may have accepted soreness as an inevitable part of riding, or be storing up more serious risk of injury. In some ways, it’s like driving a car. You wouldn’t dream of embarking on a journey without an MOT. A bike fit means you can look forward to hours of riding with confidence.

Pedalworks Bike Fit Features

RIDER INTERVIEW

Discuss your riding experience and goals, lifestyle, any issues and history of pain or injury.

POSTURAL & MOVEMENT ASSESSMENT

Our fitter will observe you on the bike and identify any tightness, weaknesses and structural asymmetries. We use this information to customise fittings, and where appropriate, give guidance on technique or the benefits of further exercise or physiotherapy.

3D MAPPING

At this stage, we get you pedalling and use Dartfish Motion Capture to analyse and inform your optimal riding posture and range. Adjustments are then made from the analysing the data from the Dartfish Motion Capture technology. With the Advanced Fit we take more time (up to 3 hours) to consider fine-tuning for your optimal position on the bike.

CRITICAL TOUCHPOINTS

We look closely at the critical foot/shoe/pedal interface and consider how to support you with orthopaedic insoles (see below), wedges, stacks and shims – the building blocks to efficient power transfer, and pain-free revolutions. We undertake cleat alignment on your shoes.

MODEL RECOMMENDATIONS

At the end of the fit we will review your current bike or recommend specific models that suit you best. We are a dealer for the full range of bikes from Trek, Cannondale, Giant, Cube, Whyte and Liv. For regular customers, we can source a number of other brands – just ask.

PERSONALISATION

If you buy a new bike from us, we will make all the necessary adjustments to ensure it fits you perfectly, including swapping the stock seatpost, stem, handlebars and saddle like-for-like, if required, at no extra charge.

REPORT

We complete your fitting with a report of your measurements for you to keep and we keep your details on record.
