Cycle Therapy Precision Bike Fit Systems Studio
People have been riding bikes for over a hundred years and the biggest change has been over the last 10 years with the universal recognition of the importance of a proper bike fit. Not only choosing the right frame size but proper adjustment of all the contact points — the pedals, handlebars and saddle.
In the course of a typical 2 hour ride we will make 10,000 pedal strokes. Proper bike fit is the key to maximising comfort on a bike — this translates to a superior riding experience that will increase power output while minimizing injuries. Whether you are riding around the corner or across the country you should be as comfortable as possible on your bike. If you are experiencing pain in your neck; back; knees; hands; or feet you are probably riding a bike that does not fit you properly. Finding a bike seat that fits you well is also imperative. There are dozens of bike saddles designed for every rider and riding style. Saddles come in a variety of materials from gel to leather. There are women-specific saddles that are shorter and wider to accommodate a woman's wider pelvis. Others have a center cutout to relieve pressure on soft tissues. We have a great selection of saddles in stock and we allow you to try any saddle we have without commitment to find the one that fits you best.
