We Fit The Bike
To The Rider


During a Bike-fit our consultants analyse pedal action, foot stability, rider asymmetry, and rider interaction with both the saddle and handlebars.

We help each rider understand their interaction with the bike better and also advise them on where they can find improvements from off the bike activity – conditioning, stretching and core work.

Who is Bike-fit suitable for?

To be brutally honest it is suitable for any level of rider. A poor fitting bike is not the preserve of the new rider. Many very experienced riders have positions that can be improved (sometimes radically). One really interesting fact is that 98% of the Northern European population express Asymmetry (often at the pelvis). Bikes are Symmetrical so our very interaction with the bike is bound to throw up issues. One good way of checking for asymmetry is to look down at your quads/knees when pedalling. Do the legs pass the top tube evenly or is one closer to the top tube than the other? If the answer is yes, one is closer than the other then even if you are not experiencing discomfort when riding a level 2 Bike-fit would open up power that you are currently wasting or not engaging.

Testimonials

Cheers Stephen!

You were a great support, I enjoyed picking your brains being a keen novice unwed to talk to people like you. The ride home on the saddle wasn’t so bad a great improvement on previous.

We will catch up soon, Jeff.


Jeff Vaughan

Hi Steve,

Thanks loads for this morning.  You’re clearly a very experienced bloke in all things cycling and it’s great just to talk to someone who knows what they’re talking about (I find people like that are few and far between!).

I’ll definitely be recommending you to my cycling mates who are needing a professional fit or anything else for that matter.

I have a long ride on Sunday (badly needed day off tomorrow) so will let you know how I get on.  Just having inflated tyres will be a bonus!

 All the best, Steve.


Steve Jones

A big thank you for the bike fit – it feels a lot better in term of the foot position and I could get right down on the drops. I took on board what you said for hills and it really helped today – both the getting up early and in a higher gear to start off with and focussing on different parts of the stroke and then my left leg. We did 45k – one loop of the half ironman we’re doing in July and I was 2mph faster than my previous best average.

Cheers, Sian.

Hi Mike,

As it has been two weeks since I had the bike fitted with you I thought of giving you an update on how things are.

First of all I have to let you know that, for the first time, I could feel that I am using as much power as possible in the legs during pedal strokes. I have gained more speed and getting on with regular cadence. I have to really thank you for that.

 I am also using the arch support without any discomfort even during long rides.

 There are few issues which I am going to monitor until I see you. One is that my toes in both legs go tingly and numb after an hour or two hours ride. My fingers also go numb, but changing position of the hands do make difference.

Hi Mike,
Just wanted to drop you a note as I had an email today from British Triathlon – I’ve been selected for the World Duathlon Championships in Aviles,  Spain & wanted to say thanks for your help with the bike setup just before Christmas.

I hadn’t had chance to do much training on it over the winter months but it felt great on the day and the run off the bike went really well.

Thanks again and hope you’re going well.

Hi Steve, thank you so much for your time and expertise yesterday. I’ve just been for a spin, bike feels amazing. I feel so tall and much more secure in the handling. Position much more comfortable, not a 100% sure about the saddle so will go out a few more times. There’s so many things to absorb. Thanks again. Be in touch soon. Susie

I’ve had 3 bike fits with Mike at Bike-fit.co.uk, each time driving 160 miles each way for the privilege. I do this because it works. I had heart surgery just 6 weeks ago and I took my Trek out for the first time today since my op… straight onto the drops, banging through the gears. Like an angry armchair. Genius.


Gary Holmes

Can heartily recommend Mike Taylor for bike fitting – sorted my last 3 bikes out and a long term saddle issue too.

Thanks, Rob.


Rob Greaves

Just wanted to say a big thanks to Steve for my level 3 bike fit on my P3 this Wednesday – he was very thorough and attentive to detail, making sure he was explaining everything that he did as we went along.

I have since been out on two quick 30k blasts on the bike and already I feel more natural and a bit  faster, and I now feel a lot more confident about my upcoming first 70.3 in 2 weeks time.

Thanks to all at Bridgtown Cycles , I will be recommending you highly! Martin.


Martin Bedwin

Hi Stephen,

Great to meet you Saturday, I went on first ride Sunday morning, pace went up from the start, thought here we go again, but I settled down straight away, bike rode like a dream!

18.8mph over 56 miles and it was windy, felt the power going down to pedals and me going forward with ease.

                             Regards, Dave.

What is involved

During all Bike-fits our consultants will offer not only positional expertise but think of your fit as 2,3 or 4 hours with a cycling expert, ask about nutrition, recovery, techniques, pretty much anything we can help you with we will.

Interview


The purpose of which is to ascertain the level and style of riding undertaken, the current issues involved with riding, including injuries and the ambitions of the rider.

Saddle Review


We assess saddle engagement making sure the saddle is supportive, comfortable, the correct width and aligned at the correct height and positioned for your needs.

Physical Assessment


In which we will assess your current physical ranges of motion, understand further any injury profiles, past or present and how they may impact on your bike position.

Handlebar Review / Set up


When we have you pedalling efficiently and comfortably we will then assess the handlebars, making sure they are the correct width and reach for your range of motion, correctly set-up bars offer you multiple comfortable hand positions allowing you to alleviate any shoulder and neck discomfort.

Shoe Review / Cleat Positioning


This is a major part of the Bike-fit, get the power delivery base correct and all else can flow from there.

Video Analysis


Where appropriate video analysis will be used to help the rider understand the differences and the improvements.

Interview

Rider Asymmetry


In our experience rider asymmetry is the causative agent for most saddle discomfort as well as right to left variation in pedal stroke. Asymmetry in the pelvis is prevalent in 98% of us, it is often insignificant in every day activities but fit a symmetrical wedge into the pelvis (saddle) and then the asymmetry comes out in the knee or further down the kinetic chain. In this review we will assess and address these issues. Often this is where the eureka moment happens where suddenly pedalling under load is easy and smooth.

Physical Assessment


In which we will assess your current physical ranges of motion, understand further any injury profiles, past or present and possibly identify areas where improvements can be made with specific exercises.

Saddle review


We assess saddle engagement making sure the saddle is supportive, comfortable, the correct width and aligned at the correct height and positioned for your needs.

Video Analysis


Where appropriate video analysis will be used to help the rider understand the differences and the improvements.

Shoe review / Cleat positioning /
Insole assessment


This is a major part of the Bike-fit, get the power delivery base correct and all else can flow from there. We will also undertake a comprehensive foot review so as to best understand what is happening inside the shoe when pedalling and where necessary apply insoles/wedging to provide greater support. ‘Feet are the least understood and most important part of pedalling’.

Handlebar Review / Set up


When we have you pedalling efficiently and comfortably we will then assess the handlebars, making sure they are the correct width and reach for your range of motion, correctly set-up bars offer you multiple comfortable hand positions allowing you to alleviate any shoulder and neck discomfort. We will position your bars inline with the riding you undertake whether 1 hour circuit races, classic sportives on the cobbles of Belgium, cyclocross, long road races, enduro MTB races or a mixture of all.

In which we will assess your current physical ranges of motion, understand further any injury profiles, past or present and possibly identify areas where improvements can be made with specific exercises. This is critical for improvements in TT/Tri riding.

Saddle review


We assess saddle engagement making sure the saddle is supportive, comfortable, the correct width and aligned at the correct height and positioned for your needs. Keeping your hips open and allowing early engagement of the power in the pedal stroke.

Video Analysis


Video analysis will be used to help the rider understand the differences and the improvements as well as allowing us to make small but often significant interventions and assess their effectiveness.
