Simple is rather subjective but yes some fits can be more straight forward than others. The latter can be more rewarding but it can only happen when there is a great deal of mutual trust and respect. This forms a strong relationship and usually lasts his/her entire cycling career.

Yes, I can recall not more than 5 riders from more than a decade of work. I do not believe in changing anything just because. Fits are based on objective and scientific data with a comprehensive fit protocol – and if we find no compelling reasons to make any changes, so be it! Having said that, because we have the fit data, it is possible to make informed decisions about changing parts or bikes in the future based on the data collected. This is one of the reasons why data is so important.

It is never about the price of the bike. It’s about how good looking the bike is and how we are able to give the rider the fit he needs with the handling he wants, and the aesthetics that he likes.

Fitting prices vary according fitter’s experience, equipment used and space. Finding one that you are comfortable with and have trust in is more important than getting it cheap or engaging one that commands a premium. If you are spending good money on your equipment and thus going to spend a significant amount of time on the saddle, it only make sense to get the best out of it by making sure one is properly fitted.

Absolutely! Without a fit you will forever be second guessing your frame size and measurements. From the fit session, we will be able to know if your efficiency, handling or safety is compromised, how we can improve on them and what to look out for if a new frame or changes of parts are needed.

Sometimes it may take a week or so, depending on how much you ride to allow your muscles to adapt to a new fit. We usually recommend our clients to go easy if there are a lot of changes to the position. This is to allow the body to get used to the new fit gradually. There should not be any pain unless there is a traumatic incident that could have cause some physical damage to the body. If indeed pain is felt, please seek medical advice.

Yes it is possible to be fitted to be comfortable on the drops but it may or may not make you sprint faster. We fit riders n a position that he or she spends the most time in and that usually means hands on the brake shifter hoods. To be able to be in a good spot at the sprint point requires good fitness, lots of experience and some luck. Being in the drops does not help if you do not have the legs to get you to there.

Road bikes and triathlon bikes have different contact points, different saddles and different sitting positions, hence it is not possible to ‘translate’ numbers across the disciplines. Estimations can be made but this requires a high degree of knowledge and understanding of the rider and the respective bikes. It is very tricky and we do not recommend sizes unless we are able to keep the margin of error to the minimum.
