We offer a Dynamic fit at a cost of £80
It designed to establish the best compromise between efficient power delivery and comfort, which will vary depending upon the customers flexibility and objectives.
The fit includes a full set up of the bike and ride including correct positioning of shoe cleats.
The Dynamic Fit would also include an assessment of the total frontal surface area and look for opportunities to improve aerodynamics.
This article is focused on road bike fitting and not bike sizing. Often these two descriptions become intertwined but they are completely different. With that said, fitting a road
bicycle works best when you start with the right size bike; or at a minimum a bicycle that is close enough to your right size.
Sizing a road bicycle is not as complicated as you may have been led to believe, in part due to the reality that a good bike fit actually has little to do with the bicycle per se. Fitting a road bicycle comes down to the contact points (connection points) between the cyclist and their bicycle. These five connection points are: right and left foot, the pelvis and right and left hands. So even if your bike is not the correct “size,” as long as you get the connection points in the ideal place you can still achieve a good and comfortable bike fit.
A proper bike fit has more to do with the saddle, handlebars, brake levers and hoods, stem and, most importantly, shoes, cleats and pedals.
Anyone who plans to ride a bike for any period of time should consider having their position assessed to ensure optimal effieciency, comfort and injury prevention.
All cyclists, no matter how long they have been riding or their ability, can improve their cycling biomechanics by having a thorough analysis and bikefit.
Over the last 4 1/2 years we have seen many cyclists who have bought bikes without any assessment and have visited us with back pain, knee pain, neck pain etc.
If you are considering buying a new bike and want to ensure that your bike will fit you perfectly and not cause you injury or discomfort, then you should come to see us at Eastgate Cycles.
