‘Why Come To Us?’

Body Geometry Fit Experts: 

At Cycle Evolution we offer a full fitting service using the industry leading Retül Vantage motion capture analysis system. The fitting process is a lengthy procedure which involves a detailed assessment of your skeletal and muscular structure as well as a number of flexibility tests. This then allows us to work with you to help you find a comfortable, balanced and efficient position on the bike by adjusting and changing components as necessary. Come and see us instore, read our blog post on the subject or check out the BG fit website and youtube channel.

The store includes a purpose built space for bike fitting in our airy and spacious air conditioned fit room. This allows us to carry out your fit in a calm and spacious environment away from the distractions of the shop floor. We are well stocked with a range of handlebar, stem and seat post options allowing us to make changes quickly and easily. We also carry a complete range of Specialized and Bontrager saddles, both offering a 30 day satisfaction guarantee because we understand that the only way to know if a saddle is right for you is to spend some time riding on it.

Through each step of the process your fitter will guide you through the captured data, advising of any postural changes required in addition to adjusting the Retül Müve fit bike to get you in your best position. On completion of your fit you will be given a detailed report on a USB stick, your bike will be sized to your new position and we will advise of any component changes needed which can be fitted in store ready for your next ride. Not sure which bike to get next? A fit is a great place to start to ensure that you get the correct model and size.

The Team:

James S (Little James)

“James has been riding road bikes since the beginning of 2012, transitioning from running once he had seen the light

of a much more enjoyable and beneficial way of exercising. Currently racing for Orwell Velo in the Eastern Road Race

With a keen passion for coaching, sports nutrition and the latest technology, James brings a nice youthful edge to the

team alongside an undergraduate University degree in Sports and exercise Science.”


James F

” James is a bike fitter extraordinaire and is one of the best in the country. He has been riding bikes since the earth was

flat and his head is so full of knowledge that it might pop if you don’t ask him enough questions. He rides his Road bike

for the enjoyment and loves squeezing every watt out of the pedals and then analyzing it later. If you need some high

end info or want to know the benefits of new tech or just a way to get to the next level, his decades of experience means

he’s your man.”




“Graham is one of the fittest amongst us and has legs of steel; previous 6 time national TT Champion, multi-time TTT

National Champion and one of the fastest cyclist in Essex in his day. He has learned all of his knowledge from experiencing

it and will give you honest opinions on what woks best. Now enjoying competing on the track at Lee Valley and still

learning more about the ever developing sport of cycling. Just don’t go on a ride with him, you wouldn’t see him for long”
