Bike Fit

Improve performance, comfort and prevent injury with a bike fitting!

Why have a bike fitting?

Podiatrists are foot experts which means they understand the mechanics of the foot in correlation with the advancements and development of the shoe industry.  A podiatric bike fitting is valuable when a cyclist is experiencing pain or has declined or plateaued in their ability.  Advice on technique, posture and functional strength to ensure the cyclist can get the most out of their cycling experience. 

What it involves...

  • A full measure up of your current position
  • Dynamic bike fit on your bike to determine the most appropriate position on the bike
  • Adjustments to the bike to enhance your cycling performance, improve comfort and/or manage an injury
  • Cleat, pedal and shoe adjustments
  • Advice on suitable equipment changes if necessary
  • Advice on exercises to improve your cycling performance
  • Lower limb injury management (if needed)
  • A detailed report of your bike fitting
