Our service is carried out by our trained bike fitting staff. It is an assessment process using our fitting jig and other fitting equipment. We don't use magic tools or simply input rider measurements to a computer. We know that everyone is different and has different needs, and our skilled and experienced fitting technicians use their years of experience and mutliple fitting methods to spot what a computer often can't. The result is your bicycle is truly fitted to you, maximising efficiency and performance while avoiding discomfort or injury.
Why is a bike fit important?
- A professional bike-fit from Condor will allow you to make the most of your physical strengths and help you work on your weaknesses.
- Old injuries picked up doing another activity can affect how you ride, we can identify weaknesses and address any issues.
- The position of your cycling contact points is crucial. Everybody's feet, their hands, leg and arm length, flexibility and even where they sit is different. A a Condor bike-fit will find your unique dimensions.
A bike fit is included as part of the service when purchasing a Condor bicycle and if you are purchasing a bike, a booking is not required.
Condor Bike Fitting £100 (approx. 60 minutes)
Condor will spend some time talking through your cycling background, how long you have been using the bike, injury history, goals and what you are looking to achieve from the fit.
Measurements from your bike 'pre-fit' will be noted down including the make, model and size of the frame.
If you use clip-less pedals we recommend you bring your cycling shoes with you.
On the bike
We will address the following items during the bike fitting:
- Saddle height
- Saddle position
- Cleat position and type
- Handlebar stem length
- Stack height/overall reach
- Bar width
We will then summarise what we have done during the fit and why we have done it. If components need to be changed for a different type or size, the bike will be booked into the workshop at the next available space for the work to be carried out.
The new measurements for your bike set up will then be noted down and put into a summary report.
