    Bike Fit Guide

    Getting a bike to fit you properly isn’t just a case of setting up the saddle height and pedalling away. Anyone who rides a bike has a specific set of physiological characteristics that are unique to their body, and many of these can affect how we position ourselves when we ride.

    What is a bike fit?

    Many cyclists, from seasoned club riders to those beginning their cycling journey, ride without having a professional bike fit. Yet it’s a service that can benefit every rider, regardless of their fitness or level of riding. In all of our stores we offer a range of bike fit services to ensure riders feel more comfortable and efficient on their bike – meaning they can ride faster and for longer. In the long term, this helps to reduce the risk of injury and adds to the enjoyment of riding your bike.

    What is a Body Geometry bike fit?

    At our purpose built Specialized Body Geometry studios in Whitwell and Peterborough, we offer a unique state-of-the-art space for riders to experience the benefit of a personalised bike fit. By using technology like high-definition video capture and a Retül Müve dynamic fit bike, our staff can understand the finest details of your pedal stroke and tailor your bike position to suit your needs.

    When should I get a bike fit?

    A bike fit can benefit any rider at any stage of their cycling journey. It is a very worthwhile investment for beginners, regular riders and even professionals.

    For beginners, getting a bike that is tailored to your position from the onset will make the adventure into the world of cycling much more comfortable and enjoyable. Alternatively, riders who have set themselves new goals, or who have entered a series of races, will want to have a bike fit to iron out any existing issues. In these instances, bike fit can help you perform at the highest level, maximising pedal efficiency and power output.

    What is the Specialized Body Geometry Process?

    Pre-fit interview and flexibility assessment

    To begin the process our professional bike fitter you a few simple questions about your riding, future goals and any injuries you may have experienced previously. After this, the fitter will conduct a number of physiological tests to ascertain how your body responds to your current riding position and how this might be improved.

    Saddle, shoes and cleats

    Your saddle, shoes and cleats are the most important contact points between you and the bike. With a few pieces of equipment, we can establish what saddle is best suited to you, what shoes fit you best and how cleat positioning can improve your pedal stroke.

    Bike Adjustments with Retül Müve

    This step will analyse your current position on the bike and assess any problem areas or potential improvements that can be made. By adjusting saddle height, saddle fore/aft, stem length and stem height, the Retul Muve allows for quick and effective changes that can be personalised to your needs.

    Ride Analysis with HD video capture

    This stage allows our fitters to analyse your pedal stroke in detail and explain what is going on during this movement. This is a unique opportunity to see how your body responds to cycling, and the slow motion video capture helps our fitters eradicate any small imperfections by making some immediate adjustments. For anyone who has experienced a bike fit, they will testify to how important these minor details are. Marginal gains really do make a difference.

    Bike Fit Report

    Once everything has been analysed and you and our fitter are happy with your new personalised bike set-up you will be given a detailed custom report. This document explains every precise measurement we have recorded during the bike fit, including information about your goals and photos of your riding position.

    Two-week follow-up

    Two weeks after your bike fit, your bike fitter will arrange for a follow-up discussion to review how things have been going and answer any questions you may have for your future riding.
