Bikefit Lazer
Bikefixers Performance BikeFit

Our Bike fits use the very latest Bike Fitting Technology ensuring you get the very best out come for your bike fit.

The whole aim of the Bike fit is to help you experience the joy and wonder of cycling. We want to make sure no one stops riding a bicycle due to pain or discomfort that can be addressed with the correct size bike and a proper professional bike fit.


Bike Fitting and Bike Sizing are not the same thing. Often these two descriptions become intertwined but they are completely different. With that said, fitting a bicycle works best when you start with the right size bike.

 

We have now updated all our Bike Fitting process to address both Bike Sizing and Bike Fitting using the latest 3D Video Capture from Velogicfit and 4D Motion Capture from Leomo.

Road Bike Contact Points
Time Trial Bike Contact Points

Sizing a 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 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. 

As long as you get the equipment within the bull’s-eye (range) you can achieve a proper and efficient bicycle fit. 

Our BikeFit focuses on getting a great bike ride and our business does not rely on selling you a bicycle, in fact here at Bikefixers we don't even sell bikes. Our unique position enables us to give you a non-biased opinion on the brand (or cost) of the bicycle you ride. We just care that your bike fits you.

Getting the connection points into the bull’s-eye is just a start to the bike fit. Not only do these points need to be in the correct area but you need to fine tune each specific connection. We need to assess and fine tune the bike part as it meets your body. Why? Bicycles are symmetrical (other than one crank sometimes being a little wider-from-center than the other) whereas the human body is not. For example at  the hands, just because you may have the correct length and angled stem does not mean you have the right shape and size of handlebar, the proper bar tilt/rotation, and/or brake levers and their location on the handlebars. Or for the feet, because you set the cleat fore/aft position does not mean its rotation, tilt and stance width are correct. 

The ultimate result between the bike and your connection to it is when the bicycle basically disappears. Once you no longer notice the bike and the only thing on your mind is your ride, the scenery and/or company then you have a good bike fit. Similarly while a bike racer may not care about the scenery, they do care how fast they are going and their position in the field. When a bike racer is not conscious about their bike (it disappears) they are experiencing a great bike fit.

All Our Bike Fit levels are performed in our dedicated Bike Fit Studio with your Bike set up on a Turbo Trainer using the Velogicfit 3D Video Capture Equipment and normally take anywhere between  2 & 8 hours to complete depending on the BikeFit Level you Require. Please note that our Top Level Performance Bike Fit will be the longest as there will be an element of riding outside using the Leomo 4D Motion Capture Equipment.

 

In addition to Our Bike Fits we can also provide a 3D Aero Virtual Wind Tunnel session. While not a complete replacement for the wind tunnel, 3D Aero presents accurate data on frontal area, alongside projected power targets for relative distances and target splits, and can be used alongside our 4D Motion capture to provide a comprehensive high-performance fit for amateur and elite cyclists and triathletes.

This can be added to our Standard or Performance Bike Fit at an additional cost or as a Stand alone option.
