How Long Does a Bike Fit Take?

Your professional bike fit is comprehensive and, therefore, does take time. But we’d rather be too thorough and get things right! We will need you and your bike for between 1.5 and 2.5 hours – depending on the level of fitting you require. We’ll also provide you with a detailed report that we’ll send to you after further analysing your videos etc. That way, we can save you time by just doing the assessing and measuring during your bike fit consultation.

Combining your standard bike fit (Gold) with a cyclist musculoskeletal screening (Silver) and your bike frame sizing (Bronze) is the best and most efficient way to either optimise your cycling or eliminate any pain or cycling discomfort.
