Bike Fitting at Run & Ride

Supported by Shimano

What is bike fitting?

Our bike fitting services can address many aspects of your cycling experience. We use a system from bikefitting.com supported by Shimano.

 

Our sizing and fitting services can help you find the optimal position on your current bike for your riding style, find the correct size bike for a new purchase, set up your shoe cleats accurately or recommend the best saddle for your needs.

 

More advanced bike fits can also include analysis of your cycling position and your pedalling stroke to establish how you can optimise your position for an increased power output or a greater level of comfort on the bike.

 

Depending on which of these services you require, it can take between 15 minutes and a few hours and provide you with a simple yet personalised advice on the best bike size, recommended changes to improve your comfort, a specific diagram of the optimal personal set up for a particular bike, or deliver a detailed report on your pedalling stroke.

Who are bike fit's for?

In simple terms, everybody!

 

From a longterm cyclist to a new rider, everybody can gain something from having their position on the bike analysed and their cleats and pedal position checked.

 

You don’t have to be feeling uncomfortable or in pain on the bike to warrant a bike fit. Many regular cyclists are unaware of the gains they can make until they go through the process.

Shoe Cleat Adjustment

Included in Complete Bike Fit.

£40 when booked separately.

45mins Approx

 

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 while cycling.

Key Benefits:

  • No dead feet

  • Fewer injuries

  • Improved efficiency

Using the correct saddle for you, will reduce the chance of saddle sores, pain or injuries, whilst also allowing you to pedal more efficiently.

Our 3D Pedalling Analyser, operated by a trained fitter, can provide you with all the detail you need from your pedalling stroke to allow you to make additional adjustments to your cycling position or get some pointers on how you can focus your training to improve your pedalling dynamics. With our Pedalling Analysis report, you will receive a full analysis of your pedalling stroke, balance between left and right, and pedalling efficiency with additional tips on how you can optimise these metrics further through training or additional fine tuning of your position.

Bike Adjustment

Included in Complete Bike Fit

£50 when booked separately for a second bike.

1hr Approx

Ensure that your bike fit advice is correctly transferred to your other bike(s).

 

After a bike fit it is of course essential that your bike gets set up in line with the advice that follows from the bike 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 bikes might have.

This service is only available to those who have used us for their original fit.

 

 

Benefits:

  • Implement your position advice

  • Align set up between different bikes

  • Same set up for different geometries
