Frequently Asked Questions

We have moved the detailed section of our FAQ’s into the Blog section of our site so feel free to head there to learn more about our range of services or skim through the summarised answers below.

Is a bike fit right for me?

A good bike fit promises greater comfort, increased power output, improved efficiency and reduced injury risks. If these sound like something you’d be interested in, then book in for a fit today!

What should I expect from a bike fit?

During a short warm up on the bike, we will discuss your intended outcomes for the session in addition to any current or previous injuries that might affect the fit.

After addressing any obvious changes, we will run through a series of feedback loops to determine any areas that require further attention.

We will conduct a basic physical assessment off the bike to investigate if any physical limitations may be affecting the fit. If necessary, we can work through a series of exercises to improve your fit further.

Using Retül, we will confirm that any changes we have made to your bike or you, have improved your position.

Provided that there aren’t any componentry changes that we can’t supply in store, we will scan your position with Retül and send you a report of the final fit.

What should I take with me?

Cycling clothing is needed to ensure correct sensor placement for the Retül motion analysis. Ideally, all fits should be conducted in a cycling jersey, shorts and shoes - though it is possible to fit with flat pedals if necessary.

It’s recommended you bring trainers and any orthotics you may have, along with spare stems and saddles that you have built up over the years, if applicable!

If you’re being fitted for a Time Trial or Tri Bike fit, you should also bring the helmet you intend to use.

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. We will then email you a copy of our fit report at the end of every session.

Where are you based?

We are based in Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland. Although we are based in our Edinburgh studio we offer portable bike fitting all over Scotland, we just need a livingroom size space, garage or whatever space you have to work with, no harm in getting in touch to ask if your space may suit.

Do you offer discounts?

Yes. For groups of three or more, we can offer a reduced rate provided that you pay at the same time.

For teams and groups of five or more, we can offer you a further reduction on all fitting services.

What if I don't have a bike?

No need to worry! We have a state of the art Retül Müve bike which can precisely replicate the position of any bike on the market.

If you’re in the market for a new bike, then this will be used as part of our Frame Finder Session to determine the best bike for you.

What bike can I get fitted on?

Road, MTB, Cross, Track, TT and Commuter bikes, including E-Bikes. We will happily accommodate any style of bike.

How long does it take?

A bike fit can last between 90 minutes or so for a follow up to 6 - 7 hours for our premium services. See our services list for specific information on each session.

Can I cancel my appointment?

We are generally fairly flexible and understand life can get in the way of appointments made. You may cancel or rearrange your appointment within 24 hours with no charge and no love lost. Unless it’s an emergency, if you no-show without getting in touch, that’s bad karma you will have to deal with for the rest of your life.
