Professional Bike Fitting Service
It is easy to spend thousands of pounds on a bike but if it doesn’t fit you correctly then you will never get the best out of your cycling. Here at Wheelbase we have a highly experienced team dedicated to helping you achieve your perfect ride position, whether you’re an elite racer or a daily commuter. Our cycle fit team can fine tune your current bike, confirm size and set up of a new bike or even set you up with a fully custom frameset.
We use Selle Italia’s revolutionary idmatch system which, through a sophisticated algorithm and a few simple body measurements, determines your ideal saddle size and shape.
How does it work?
What to Wear
You should wear clothing and cycling shoes that you would normally wear on your bike. We have changing facilities available for you to use.
The Wheelbase Precision Bike Fit begins with a discussion about your current riding, future aspirations and any issues or injuries you have experienced which helps us determine your perfect riding position.
The physical assessment allows us to gauge your flexibility, stability and understand your individual body-mechanics in relation to your bike position.
From The Feet Up
We pay precise attention to your shoe and cleat setup. As a ‘fixed point’ of contact between you and your bike it is essential to get this right first.
The Perfect Position
Once we’re happy with your shoe/pedal setup we use the Precision Fit jig to establish your ideal riding position. Your Precision Fit specialist will go through a series of adjustments to saddle and handlebar position to determine your optimum position.
Your new position is taken from our jig and using geometry data is applied to your bike. All details of your fit will remain on our database and can be recalled at any time, with the option of a follow up consultation to see how you are getting on.
What our customers say…
“The bike fit has transformed my ride – feels like a new bike!” Steve, Kendal
“It’s like a different bike. Ride was so much more comfortable, ride position is loads better and the new seat has made a massive difference, I can now walk after a 3hr ride instead of hobbling around for the rest of the day!!!” Caroline, Cotswolds
“I figured if I had a new bike I should have a new fit. Having just completed an epic adventure by riding from Preston to London in a day for the last train home, I can honestly say not once during my ride did I feel the previous knee niggles, lower back pain or neck ache I had prior to the bike fit. Considering this was over a non-stop 226 mile journey it can only be testament to the bike fit I had.” Hannah, Cheshire
