There are two basic things to sort out when it comes to setting up your cleats: the angle of the cleat on the sole of your shoe, and its fore-aft position.
Badly angled cleats can cause knee pain if not rectified, although it is usually obvious from the start if they are not right.
Our workshop with explain:
- Float and tension
- Colour coded cleats
- 10 quick tips for set up
Handlebar tape serves as a critical contact point on the bike, and as such, deserves a little extra attention. The natural movement of your hands will slowly unwind tape if it not fitted properly leading to unruly cork and a messy looking bike.
Practise makes perfect and we'll provide each person with a handlebar and tape to practise on during the session.
- Wrapping tape with logos ensuring consistency
- Figure of eight around the levers
- Finishing tape ideas
- Two colour wrap
