Bike fit & cycle fitting services in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire & Moray
There are lots of reasons to have a profesional bike-fit carried out. The most common are:
Buying a new bike. Having a bike fitting first will mean a trained professional can take your ideal measurements and help you to choose a bike that’s most suited to your strength, flexibility, riding style and goals.
If you’re struggling with pain. A bike fit might be able to help you relieve this. If the pain is related to the way you’re positioned on a bike, they’ll adjust it to avoid this.
Changes to your body. If you have suffered a crash, injury, pregnancy, loss or gain in fitness, strength or flexibility then revisiting your bike position may be a good idea.
Starting a new training regime. If you are about to ramp up your training in preparation for an event then a cycle-fit will help you get the most from your training, and will give you time to get used to the new position on the bike.
Bike fit services vary dramatically in approach, tools used and price. The most expensive is not always the best, though a pricier fit might mean that the tools used are more sophisticated. You will see from our list below that many of the bike fitters offer a variety of fittings depending on your budget and goals.
