Expert Assessment

We screen your body prior to looking at your cycling position including:

  • Taking a detailed medical history.
  • A tailored physical examination depending on any specific injuries or pain you experience when cycling.

Dynamic analysis

  • We complete a dynamic analysis whilst you cycle your bike on our stationary turbo trainer.
  • Using a slow motion replay of you cycling gives us a better reflection of your cycling position and lower limb alignment compared to a static analysis.

Cycle fitting

  • After consideration of your physical examination and the riding position you currently have, alterations can be made to your bike and also the way in which you ride it, depending on the type of bike that you own, cycling style and goals.
  • Alterations to your bike may include adjustments to your saddle position, handle bar/aero bars positioning and cleat alignment.

Recommendations

  • Home exercises may be advised for you to work on your flexibility or strength.
  • We may advise to replace smaller components on your bike such as your saddle or stem but we will take every effort to work with what you currently have.

What makes our Cycling Assessment Service so useful to you as a leisure cyclist or competitive cyclist is that it helps you

  • Improve your efficiency, reduce fatigue and make you faster.
  • Reduce the risk of developing pain or injury whilst on the bike.
  • Increase your comfort and enjoyment whilst cycling.
