A Complete Fit will measure your body height, upper body, leg & arm length, shoulder width and foot size on our 2D Body Analyzer. Based on those metrics, Shimano’s unique algorithm and their experience of having completed more than 1.5 million of those measurements, we will then provide you with a full bike diagram of your suggested bike set up no matter if it’s a road bike, commute or mountain bike. It will take all of the guess work out of your bike set up and can be used to optimise your position on a current bike or guide the purchase of a new one to ensure you get the right size and set up for your requirements. Includes shoe adjustment and saddle selection.
After a bike fit, it is of course essential that your bike gets set up in line with the advice generated from your fit. Our Bike Adjuster can do this with laser precision as it relies on precise XY coordinates relative to the bottom bracket so that your position can be precisely replicated between bikes regardless of the different geometry that your bikes may have.
SHOE CLEAT ADJUSTMENT
A good cycling position starts with the correct positioning of the feet on the pedals and it is therefore extremely important that the cleats are properly adjusted so that the feet can move around the pedals in the most natural, efficient and comfortable way. When purchasing new shoes or replacing your cleats, it is therefore very important that the cleats are properly adjusted so that your foot is not too far forward or backward on the pedal and your foot is not forced into an unnatural position whilst cycling. Getting your cleats fitted by our Shoe Cleat Adjuster and a trained member of our team will provide you with less friction, more comfort and an improved power transfer.
Our Saddle Selector accurately measures your sit bone width and combines this with your flexibility and preferred riding position to advise the most appropriate saddle. Using the correct saddle for you, will reduce the chance of saddle sores, pain or injuries, whilst also allowing you to pedal more efficiently.
FIVE REASONS YOU NEED A BIKE FIT
TO OPTIMISE YOUR CYCLING EXPERIENCE
Regardless of the type of cyclist you are or how fit you are, a bike fit will increase the size of your smile when you’re riding your bike. We believe that achieving optimal performance and comfort and an increased self-confidence whilst riding a bike, is what every cyclist should aim for.
TO IMPROVE YOUR PERFORMANCE
Whether you are a commuter or a racer, all cyclists want to ride with less effort. A bike fit will help you to be more efficient by increasing your power transfer on the pedals and by improving your pedalling stroke, so you can save more energy and even beat your friends or the rush hour traffic.
TO INCREASE THE ENJOYMENT
In general, a bike fit will increase your enjoyment both on and off the bike. Less pain or discomfort means more fun whilst riding your bike and less chance of injuries both in the short and long term.
Please be aware that a bike fit does not replace any treatments from a medical specialist for specific injuries.
TO INCREASE YOUR COMFORT
The main goal of a bike fit is to increase your comfort on the bike. A well fitted bike is crucial if you want to ride it better, longer or even faster. Most sportive cyclists know just how tough riding a bike can be, which is exactly why others would never choose cycling as their hobby. Despite the fact that cycling is one of the toughest sports around, injuries are relatively rare, provided that your position on the bike is aligned with your flexibility and your physical characteristics and of course, your bike has been well adjusted.
TO GAIN MORE SELF CONFIDENCE
If you know exactly which size bike you need and what size handlebar and saddle, you will feel more self-assured if you buy a new bike or bike part. Once on your bike, you will notice that you have more control and a greater pedalling efficiency. This will increase your self-confidence when pedalling, turning, braking, accelerating and making your break away from the pack.
