Can I have some recommendations for a good bike fitter please ?  I'm in the south east, but could travel to Bristol/London/Midlands if need be.

I had a retul bike fit from the bike science guys - mine was in Derby but they have a branch in Bristol and Tunbridge Wells -

Fragile -  a group of us did a  bike for with Bike Science in Bristol. We did a group booking for 4 and it was £100 per person. I *may* know someone who *may* be interested in getting a group of four together

Oooo I'd be up for a group bike fit if we could secure a discount! And providing I had the day off.

Ooh, sounds good Schmunks

was hoping to get something sorted out for a couple of weeks time when the fraglets are staying with grandparents and I'll be able to get out for a few hours.....

Little Miss Happy have you noticed any benefit to your cycling from a retul fit? There is one near me but I don't want to chuck money at something that won't help.

Unless you've got a particular problem you should be able to sort your own bike fit out - it's not really rocket science - 3 contact points how hard can it be?

Fraggle - could be lots of things, but possibly cleat alignment.

I would suggest that no doubt Popsider knows what he's talking about when it comes to bikes, so he's able to fit his own bike - but for us who know sod all about these, we may benefit from being told by someone else. I'm certainly more comfortable on my TT bike after having a fit.

Where did you go Raf?


(and yes I'm a numpty so need someone else to look at my cycling and see what's out of alignment)

Oh and another vote for Freespeed in London.

People  rode bikes for 100 years without the need for bike fitters, but if you want to piss a hundred quid up the wall be my guest!

Fraggle - I went to Bike Science in Bristol when we got the group discount for the 3D Retul fit. If its just for a road bike, you may be ok getting a 'static fit' - which is cheaper.

popsider save me £185 and tell me how to stop my back ache

21/07/2013 at 14:12

Stop riding your bike = no back ache. £1 please

100 years ago women of a certian age did not ride a bike for hundreds of miles each week........especially with dodgy backs and knees........#

If i was just cycling down to the shops and back a couple times a week I'm sure I would not need a bike fit
