Bike Fitting

We are clear that in cycling and triathlon the KEY to success is power and economy on the bike. Bike fitting is critical to achieving this. It’s not just about the pure biomechanics of power development. Equally important is balancing the aerodynamic effect versus power output. This ensures the fastest possible forward motion with the least resistance and maximal power output.

This is why at Peaks we uniquely offer both biomechanical and aerodynamic bike fits. We have been trained by the best in the UK, to offer full IBFI recognised biomechanical fits. The result is the balance of maximal power generation with comfort and efficiency that covers all branches of cycling. Whether it’s road, triathlon, track, time trial or mountain bikes, the perfect bike fit will deliver better performance. 

Working with our partners Aerocoach Ltd, we can also provide ‘live’ real time sessions where we can make aerodynamic adjustments to your position. This means we can balance power and aerodynamic drag minimisation (cda) to achieve your optimum position.

Our approach to bike fitting

Biomechanical goals

1. Optimise your position 
Firstly, it makes you faster for the same effort through simply ensuring the correct fit.

2. Increase your comfort and efficiency
Secondly, a well fitted bike is comfortable for long distances. This ensures you are as energy economical as possible.

3. Reduce, prevent or rule out injury
Finally, an optimum bike position avoids unnecessary strain on knees, back or shoulders.

Bike fitting for Triathlons

Triathlon is about balancing aerodynamics, power generation and economy. This ensures you are fresh for the important run. We also look specifically at your target races to make sure your set up meets your needs.

Bike fitting for Time Trials

The goal of TTs is to maximise forward motion for less effort. The ‘enemy’ is air resistance. We work on your CDA and make adjustments to reduce it. Even a 2% decrease can save 30secs in a typical 1 hour TT!

Bike fitting for road racing

Aerodynamics are just as important in road racing and sportives. We work with clients to make sure their position maximises both speed and power, through a balance of biomechanical and aerodynamic fits.

Our bike fit levels

We want to keep it simple and offer 2 types of fits – Road Fit and Aero Fit.

Why the difference? Within our TT/Triathlon fit we spend detailed time analysing your frontal area via motion capture software, to determine your ‘aerodynamic silhouette’. Utilising Andy’s experience from elite racing we will look to put you in a position to balance aerodynamics and power generation. We then ‘test’ power output to ensure we optimise this position. Finally, we also offer advice on components and the best ‘wind cheating’ technology.

With our partners at Aerocoach, we can also facilitate ‘real life’ aero testing. On a velodrome we use computer analysis of air flow so we can make micro adjustments to maximise your forward motion.

With both our Road and Aero fits you get full detailed reports to take away and keep. There is also the option for a free 4 weekly follow up. Plus, we offer a discounted rate for additional bikes.
