What's involved in a Body Geometry Fit
During a Body Geometry fit all contact points between the you and your bike are carefully analysed and adjusted while taking into consideration your experience, goals, strength and flexibility. A Body Geometry Fit will generally take between 2-3 hours with a follow-up appointment available 30 days after the initial appointment.
1. Pre-Fit Interview
A short interview for our fitter to gain an understanding on your cycling background, your riding style, how often you ride, whether you have any previous injuries, and whether you have any pains or concerns when riding at present.
2. Pre-Fit Assessment
An 18 step assessment to evaluate your body's natural position, evaluate flexibility and to gauge if there are any limitations which may have been caused from a previous injury.
3. Ride Analysis & Adjustment
With your bike on our stationary trainer and you in your riding gear our fitter will analyse all contact points between you and your bike while riding under various simulated conditions in order to determine the most comfortable and efficient ride position.
On completion of the Body Geometry Fit our fitter will schedule a follow-up discussion to review how you have adapted to the new fit and to answer any questions or concerns.

Bikes of all ages, models and brands are welcome in our Body Geometry Fit studio.
Does Body Geometry Fit work with all bikes?
It certainly does! The Body Geometry Fit methodology can be applied to road, mountain, time trail and fitness/hybrid bikes. While each style of bike will require a slightly different fitting approach all require the same process for the pre-fit physical assessment.
I own multiple bikes. Can the fit be carried over to these?
Yes, however additional time will be required to carry out changes on each additional bike. Please contact our fit specialist to
I've had a bike fit in the past however am starting to feel uncomfortable. Will a new fit help?
Bicycle fitting is dynamic and can change over time due to a number of factors such as: stress, injury, changes to riding style or changes to amount of time spent on the bike. Through the pre-fit physical assessment a new Body Geometry Fit will take into account your body's current state in order to optimise comfort and efficiency for how your body has adapted.
