Frequently Asked Questions
Is Retül right for me?
A Retül fit is right for anyone, the main reasons for a fit are to either check the frame, crank and stem size of a bike you are interested in buying is right for you, increase comfort, or to set up the bike for maximum performance. Generally the feedback we get is an increase in speed and power output on the bike and reduced fatigue and hot spot pain if any of the above is what you're after from a bike fit then a bike fit is for you.
What should I expect from a bike fit?
You should expect to have your cleats fitted, and all the adjustments made to the bike that day, if you have to go away and buy additional components such as a new stem or bars then you can come back to get it fitted, often for no additional cost, although we reserve the right to charge for this occasionally.
Do I get anything to take home?
Yes, every fit is finished with a Zin which provides you with your set up measurements for future reference.
What shouldn't I expect
You shouldn't expect a bike service, we will not be able to tune up the gears or brakes for you and we also wont valet your bike.
