Bike Fitting

Why a bike fit?

Bike fitting is a procedure which involves a detailed assessment of your skeletal and muscular structure as well as a number of flexibility tests. This allows the fitter to work with you to help you find a comfortable, balanced and efficient position on the bike.

Retül fit is more than just a bike fit - it's a way to learn about your body, the root cause of your aches and pains, and how a proper fit will help you achieve your cycling goals.

Retül uses 3D motion capture technology, where the system accurately measures every degree of movement and millimetre of distance, providing you and our fitter with data to support the choices made during the fit for your cycling equipment and personal riding experience.

Through each step of the process your fitter will guide you through this captured data, advising of any postural changes required in addition to adjusting the Retül Müve fit bike or Watt Bike to get you in your best position. On completion of your fit you will be given a detailed report on all of your personal parameters / body limits. Your fitter will then size your bike to your new position and will advise you of any component changes needed to match your bike to your data. These components can then be fitted in store ready for your next ride.

Efficiency, comfort, support and aerodynamics are all improved, leading to better performance, faster rides and less aches and pains. This is by far the best value for money upgrade you can purchase to improve your riding.

Not sure which bike to get next? A fit is also a great place to start to ensure that you get the correct model and size.

Process and Services

Our Bike Fitting Process
  1. A friendly welcome, coffee or tea on arrival
  2. Pre-assessment, any injury history, rider history, events completed, type of riding undertaken and goals
  3. Flexibility, symmetry and range of motion tests/evaluation, assess you as an individual and your geometry
  4. A digital scan of the riders existing bike to give us a base point for their current and pre-assessed riding position
  5. That position is then replicated on the Retul fit jig
  6. The rider is then placed on the jig and a series of infrared sensors are attached to the rider to track movement across the entire body including the whole pedal stroke, giving us a detailed and 3D evaluation pre adjustments
  7. Adjustments are then made to achieve a more comfortable & efficient position, taking into account the riders individual requirements
  8. Once our fitters are happy they have achieved that optimum position, a further digital scan analysis is carried out on the fit jig, then compared to the pre-fit scan of the riders current bike to assess any changes of position and/ or components required.
  9. It may be required that the customer leave their bike with us for these changes to then be made, especially if they are for specialist requirements. This will be made clear at time of fitting/analysis.
  10. Riders leaves with changes made to his or her bike and a report in PdF format detailing a full breakdown of the results of the entire bike fit. The rider is then welcomed back for a review after approx 2-3 months to check up on the position, and then any further amendments if needed.
