How a bike fits you is without doubt the most important variable to get the most out of cycling. Whether you are trying to convert every possible watt of power into speed in the last Kilometer of a road race, grovelling up a technical mountain-side or simply riding your bike into town for the day if it doesn’t fit you right you are at best not making the most of it and, at worst potentially lining yourself up for an injury.
There are a myriad of different tools and advice to ‘help’ you get the right fit on your bike but the truth of the matter is that the dynamics of riding a bike are pretty complicated. Everyone has different priorities and limitations so that every fit is different, there is certainly no set of rules or parameters that you can apply to everyone. In short you need someone who has knowledge of and experience with all the individual components that go into getting someone correctly set up on their machine. Fortunately we can provide just that person: Tom has a masters degree in Sports Biomechanics, an Aeronautical engineering degree, experience working at the cutting edge of bicycle aerodynamics with top professional teams, first hand experience of elite level competition and several personal training qualifications (not to mention a lifetime’s experience of making bikes work).
