Bike fitting at base2race
If a cyclist or triathlete can do only one thing to improve their riding experience and speed, it should be adjusting the bike position for a better fit and feel for their bike, a position to suit the geometry of the individual. Our aim is to make you as comfortable, powerful and as aerodynamic as YOU need to be on your bike. We bike fit all levels of rider from beginner to elite get in the correct position which will help optimise rider performance and comfort while also helping prevent injury.
From experience we understand the requirements of spending 5 hours plus in the saddle. At Velo Motion cycles within Base2Race we perform this service. We believe that the training and skill of the bike fitter is most important, and that technology is a tool to assist the process. Dominic is SICI (Serotta international Cycling Institute) trained and accredited from Cyclefit at Covent Garden, one of the premier training centres for bike fitting.
Fittings are on a booking basis for both road and time trial bikes and can be made by calling the shop on 01-4295769.
The process takes approx 2 hours and follows the Serotta International Cycling Institute standards, www.sici.com. In addtion we utilise Dartfish software to fine tune the angle measurements.
We start by taking a history check, finding out about your cycling background, previous injury check, we examine your flexibility, your training goals (racing, sportives, leisure, commuting). Following this interview process, we determine the best bike fit to suit your individual needs.
During the bike fit, we examine cleat positioning, shoe/pedal interface, saddle height, saddle type, KOPS (knee over pedal spindle), torso angle, handlebar width, stem length, stack, reach, and knee tracking, all to increase comfort, reduce possibility of injury and increase power output.
It is quite intensive and depending on what is noticed during the fit can take up to 1.5 - 2 hours.
A €50 deposit is required for all bike fittings. This will be refunded if cancellations occur within 24 hours of the appointment time.
