What can I expect?

You will be greeted in private environment to carryout your fit.

After a discussion of your needs and any specific questions, a brief examination of your overall flexibility will be carried out (with your cycling clothing on). This includes simple movements and some basic measurements.

We will look at your shoes and cleats and discuss wear on these and your pedals.

Once on your bike an HD video is taken so that we are able to look at your position together.

Additional video may also be taken to assess your position from different angles.

The position of your cleats is checked using a laser as a guide, this is done from the side and the front as required.

After any required adjustments are made to your cleats, the Retul wireless harness is attached to you to allow dynamic measurement of your cycling position.

This is carried out for both sides of your body and the results discussed.

Once the results are discussed, any appropriate adjustments are made and the Retul dynamic measurement is repeated.

You will be on your bike for up to 90 minutes with adjustments being made to your bike with the aim of achieving a comfortable and neutral fit.

Once you are comfortable, your bike is measured and you are provided with these measurements and your reports.

Importantly your are encouraged to provide feedback throughout the session and ask any questions that you have to increase your understanding of the process.
