A BIKE FIT IS THE BEST INVESTMENT YOU CAN MAKE IN CYCLING. IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

I cannot imagine buying a bike without a bike fit. Why buy blind when you can get expert advice to assist? And when you factor in that the fitting is 'free' it becomes a no-brainer...


Every bike we sell starts with a bike fit:

  • If building a custom bike this ensures that the frameset and all the contact points are perfectly sized:

For over ten years every bike we've sold has started with a bike fit. There is no selling what we have 'in stock' off of the shop floor. Each bike sale is a custom order, and we select and then order what is perfect for you.

  • If you choose an "off-the-peg" bike then we'll change whatever is necessary (handlebars, stem, seatpost, even saddle) to ensure the perfect fit - and at no extra cost:

If you prefer to select a complete bike from one of our suppliers we will still make it Bespoke for you - and after the bike fitting has confirmed the correct size we will as necessary swap the handlebar width, stem length and angle, spacer count, seatpost length & layback and saddle width to make your bike fit you perfectly.

And we will do this free of charge (whereas if you were to buy a stock bike without these changes and make them later it could cost £200-500).

  • The process:

  1. Bike chat and body assessment to understand your riding and ambitions
  2. Fitting
  3. Present bike options
  4. Select bike and make necessary changes for perfect fit
  5. Order bike and build to spec
  6. Final fitting & handover
  7. Get out there and ride!

ALREADY HAVE A BIKE?

We believe that a bike fitting is the single best investment you can make for your cycling efficiency, comfort, performance and, ultimately, enjoyment.

Far too often shops try to force square pegs into round holes and as such it's the rider who is expected to accommodate the bike. The whole point of bike fitting is to flip that on its head - we get the bike to fit you.

To do that we need to understand you, your body, your cycling history and your cycling goals. We also understand that the body does not exist in a vacuum - it's a dynamic thing and you will gain and/or lose weight, fitness, core strength and flexibility over time. So a bike fitting needs to understand that your position may also evolve over time.

Postural and movement assessment identify any tightness, weaknesses and structural asymmetries. This may highlight further areas that can be improved with dedicated physiotherapy, pedaling technique or cycling strength and conditioning sessions.
Additional positions assess and adjust the cleat position, footbeds, shoes size and shape, saddle position, handlebar and grip position.
Model recommendations at the end of the fit we will recommend specific models which will suit you best, and any adaptations required to make them fit perfectly. This is done using our very own proprietary app.
Credited cost you can use the fit measurements to buy a bike anywhere, but the price of the fit will be credited in full if you subsequently order a bike from us.

Enhance your fitting

Custom footbeds

We will assess whether you’d benefit from custom footbeds (insoles) as part of the bike fit process. But we also offer this as a separate, stand-alone service. A footbed fitting session comes complete with one set of footbeds, including assessment, moulding and fitting. Your footbeds will be ready to take away at the end of the session. Just bring along your shoes to ensure a perfect fit.

Cleat alignment

We look at shoe cleat alignment as part of the bike fit process, and will make any necessary adjustments (except for the 1-hour basic fit). However, we also offer this as a separate service, ideal if you’re changing to a different brand of pedals or buying new shoes. NB: Cleat alignment is only available to customers who have already had a bike fit with us at Bespoke.

Duration: 30mins

Follow up fit

As you get fitter and more flexible, your position needs to evolve to support the faster, stronger you. We suggest that everyone has a follow up fit every 6 months to optimise their position. NB: The Follow Up fit is only available to customers who have already had a bike fit with us at Bespoke.

Aero Test - Virtual Wind Tunnel

Studies have shown that when travelling at speeds over 8 mph, aerodynamic drag outweighs rolling resistance. At speeds of 20 mph and above, 90% of a cyclist's effort is spent overcoming aerodynamic drag (cdA), with 30% of a cyclist's cdA due to the bike and 70% due to the cyclist's body. This tell us that substantial gains in performance can be made by reducing frontal area and optimising riding position. Our Bioracer Virtual Wind Tunnel offers us the ability to fine tune your bike position to reduce cdA and improve performance. The Bioracer system measures your frontal area and hypothetical speed it takes to maintain this position. You'll then be coached by a bike fitter in differing positions to reduce frontal area, with real-time feedback on the speed, time and wattage effects. Not only can we optimise your position on the bike to reduce cdA, we can also test various products (such as helmets) to identify the fastest equipment available to you. (n.b. this service is only available to customers who have previously had a new or existing bike fit here at Bespoke Cycling)
