We believe bike fitting is an essential part of creating harmony between rider and bike. As avid cyclists ourselves we understand the demands of our beloved sport on the human body and dedicate our time to researching and indentifying ways to increase efficiency and support, limit stresses and prevent injury. To ensure this approach to every rider we see, all our bike fit services include an in depth off-bike assessment, rider interview and specific stretching and exercise recommendations. We use proven bike fit technologies to measure, monitor and record the changes we make and provide you with a comprehensive report to take away.
In order to match you to the most suitable level of service, we have given some details below to help you choose. If you are still unsure what to book, or would like to discuss specific requirements please feel free to email us with your enquiry or request a call back.

Aero testing powered by Velogic
This booking is aimed at making you faster! With our specialist software and camera we create a virtual wind tunnel that allows us to measure frontal area in real-time. Combined with power data (Watts) we can calculate theoretical speed and time on the road. We can then test changes in position such as arm pads, hand position, handlebar height along with postural changes to the way you ride in order to increase speed and save you energy. Best suited to Time Trialists, Road Riders and Triathletes riding without injury or bike fit concerns, this session does not include biomechanical assessment.
We welcome riders to bring multiple items of equipment for testing.
New Bike Advisory
Looking to treat yourself to a new machine? We're here to help you choose the very best bike for you! At the initial appointment we will carry out a visual bike fit on your current bike (or our studio bike) with adjustable components to ensure you are in an optimum riding position. From there we can then spend time going through your shortlist of potential bikes highlighting which will suit best your riding needs and individual physiology. This booking includes a second appointment once you have purchased your dream bike, then fine tuning it to match you perfectly.
A professional massage is a great way to relieve muscle tension and aid soft tissue repair. It is alsoan effective method of reducing pain associated with tightness and improving joint mobility. Massage treatments can greatly compliment our bike fit services; targeted massage therapy can speed up the adaptation to your new riding position, improve posture and and help to restore soft tissue function. Our staff are fully qualified in sports massage and soft tissue therapy and are happy to discuss the best treatment for you.

BodyWatch™ Exercise Screening
What is Exercise Screening?
A comprehensive assessment and record of your functional movements that are the foundation for any sport's movement patterns. Carrying out a set of specifically chosen exercises we assess your ranges of movement, flexibility and stability. We’ll identify limb-length inequality, postural dysfunction and inefficient or problematic movement patterns and their biomechanical causes.
Why consider a Screening?
Prehab: To ensure you are ready to train effectively, maintain proper exercise function and avoid injuries caused by poor movement repetition. If you're taking up a new sport, or significantly increasing your training, a screening would be a great first step.
Rehab: To aid the recovery process involved in returning to sport from an injury. By understanding any limitations caused by the injury, as well as compensations your body may have made, we can help you to return to full fitness and reduce your chances of reinjury.
Performance: Gain insight on your athletic function and identify areas of weakness or imbalance to make improvements in your performance in your chosen sport and to gain an find that edge over your competitors.
Well-being: Postural dysfunction caused by repetitive stresses such as work and home life can lead to everyday discomfort and pain. By highlighting potential issues early, you can make plans to remain healthy and pain free.
What is BodyWatch and how does it differ from other screenings?
Most functional screening protocols rely exclusively on the eyes of the person assessing the athlete. This leaves the process open to interpretation, inconsistency and human error.
To avoid these inaccuracies we use infrared 3D camera technology to accurately record you as you perform each exercise. Powered by EuMotus, BodyWatch records the movement of up to 26 body joints and analyses the biomechanics of more than 35 key body metrics in real time. Your movements are objectively and intelligently assessed and the results are displayed in an easy to read and shareable report. Your results can be replayed and compared instantly and makes for incredibly consistent and repeatable assessment, even over separate visits.
Please contact us if you are interested in a screening. (Online booking coming soon).
