5 Great reasons to have a bit fit 

1. Reduce The Risk of Injury

Having a bike built for you is the first and biggest step to help avoid overuse injuries. A study in 1994 by the International Journal of Sports Medicine discovered that, from a test of 518 cyclists that covered an average of 75 miles per week, 86% suffered from one or more overuse injuries due to poor fitting bicycles.

2. Improved Comfort

An integral part of cycling is comfort - without it you won't enjoy riding.  This is the same for everyone no matter what type of rider you are from a professional to recreational rider. When we set you up we will be looking at ways to help you ride fast but also to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.

3. Improved Efficiency

When we fit your VO2 bike to you we will set you up in a position that will help your riding. By reducing any inhibiting factors we can make you and your bike work together in harmony, which will allow you to perform to your full potential.

4. Greater Handling Skills

With your body and legs in the correct position and your arms relaxed, you will be able to handle your bike with greater precision making you ride easier, safer and faster!

5. Improved Aerodynamics

The greatest resistance a rider can face is air. Without any fitness gain, if a rider is to improve looking at their position is the first place to start. Lower is not always the fastest way to get a rider to slice through the air. We will be looking at ways to help you slice the air when fitting you to your bike.
