It is a process of fitting the bike to the rider, not the rider to the bike.
At Studio de Velo we believe that every cyclist has the right to feel comfortable and at one with their bike. Our range of bike fitting services will help maximise your performance and improve comfort levels.
At Studio de Velo we want to change riders’ thinking around bike fit. It requires more than just getting advice on bike setup whether it be from an amateur cyclist, a bike expert, or fitness professional – this is simply guessing. A proper physical assessment is the only accurate way to determine the best riding position, and now combined with Retul Bike Fit technology.
The Body Geometry Fit technique has been developed over 9 years by the cycling industry’s leading bike fitters, you the rider, and professionals, such as Dr Andy Pruitt from the Boulder Centre for Sports Medicine in the USA. Now combine with Retul Fit technology we believe this to be the most comprehensive bike fit available.
Body Geometry Fit is a comprehensive assessment of your riding technique, not just from the traditional side-on view but also from the frontal view. This assessment looks at balance on the bike, to minimize sideways movement of your knee to reduce injury, and to improve power and efficiency. This 20 step, cycling specific, physical assessment is done before you get on your bike. The physical assessment gives us the parameters by which your bike fit guided – your bodies strengths and weaknesses. We adjust to bike to suit your unique physiology. Allow approx 2.5hrs for the complete body geometry fit. After 2 weeks we get you in again and to check how your body is adapting to any changes we made.
Due to the intricacies of fitting a Time Trial bike and the extra attention paid to the handlebar set up please allow 3hrs for a TT set up.
