Road Bike Fit
3 Key points
Fitting is a process of taking as much information as possible and turning it into a position that sees a human semi-fixed to a rigid machine at 3 key points – Pedals, Saddle and Bars.
Our 5 step protocol
Skipping a step leads to a poor fit. We follow a procedure of:
- Pre-fit assessment
- Cleat and pedal set up
- Initial fit analysis
- Biomechanical changes
- Post fit analysis and report
Road or Gravel
With the latest craze of gravel bikes along with the ongoing boom in road cycling we are well placed to offer great knowledge in both areas. Total Bike Fit is headed up by a former 1st cat road racer and one of the very few people to finish the GB divide – a 1200 mile ride the length of the UK.
Aero TT/Tri Bike Fit
TT vs Triathlon
Getting specific to your sport is critical to us. The triathlon fit considers a balance of everything you need to run well off the bike as well as ride well on it. The differences are subtle but very important and often overlooked.
A combination of stability, comfort, power delivery and aerodynamics all come together in both your bike performance and your ability to run off the bike. Getting the balance of these right both for your body type, event distance and goals is crucial for you to execute your best triathlon.
Saddle Pressure Mapping
With an Ultimate Bike fit Saddle Pressure mapping is used as standard to help determine optimum position and contact area with the saddle and also to help determine whether the saddle you are riding is the right one for you. Using the gebioMized system we can use one of the guiding parameters to to create unique testing protocols for the individual to maximise gains. Stability, centre of pressure, force and pressure distribution allow us to guide you to the perfect position for your needs.
The ultimate fit tool in our eyes. Quantifiable data which not only makes you more comfortable but measures change at all contact points and optimises stability and performance.
