Bike Fit

Bike fit here at York Cycleworks with one of our 4 Trek Precision Fit technicians. 

Bike Fit

The last few years have seen a dramatic improvement in the quality of bike technology. Amateur riders are now able to enjoy the sort of high end, quality performance products that have previously only been available to professional teams. Historically, the scientific analysis available to Pro Tour teams has not been widely available those same amateur riders. With the development of bike fitting systems this has now changed and with our Trek Precision Fit Jig and trained Bike Fit Technicians, Fraz, Jon and Mike. In 2016, we welcomed Ed Nicholson to the team. Ed is a senior physiotherapist with the NHS, as well as running his own busy private practice. Ed will be joining us to carry out "Physio Fits", these range from standard bike fits, refits and physio sessions and any combination of the above! With nearly 30 years experience in cycling and racing as well as many years working as a physio and personal trainer, Ed is uniquely placed to help you with any injures/imbalances you may have and get your riding better than ever.  New for 2019, we’re pleased to be working with Crimson Performance on our bike fitting services.

Using a 'from the ground up process', we'll look at the alignment of your feet, knees and hips and before we analyse your flexibility, bio mechanics and core strength as well as taking a full assessment of the your cycling history, any pre existing injuries and/or niggles and cycling goals ... and that's all before we even touch the Trek Precision Bike Fit Pro Jig!

Once pedalling on the Trek Precision Fit Jig our technicians can track your movements using motion caputure,  use pressure mapping to get a pin-point view of how you actually sit on your bike and analyse your pedal stroke and power output on both legs to build a comprehensive view of your overall position and efficiency on your bike.

Equipment We Use

The Trek Precision Bike Fit Pro Jig

The Trek Precision Bike Fit Pro Jig allows us to make minute adjustments to your position to ensure we find the optimimum position for you, aligned with your goals, flexibility and strength. No on-and-off and stop-start, just smooth fast, accurate, repeatable and recordable adjustments.

Computrainer

Wired into the Trek Precision Bike Fit Pro Jig, Computrainer provides the variable resistance and, more importantly, Spinscan. Spinscan shows our Bike Fit Technician where and when you are applying power on each pedal stroke and allows us to find the optimum position for you.

Gebiomized Pressure Mapping

Saddle Pressure Mapping adds another dimension to your bike fit. This allows us to record the pressure you apply to the saddle and accurately see how you sit on your bike. Adjustments to footwear, cleats and rider position change the tilt and angle of your pelvis and this bigger picture allows us to make recommendations on saddle choice based on concrete evidence. Saddle selection is no longer just guesswork, using pressure mapping we can accurately select the very best saddle for you and your riding style.

Motion Capture

Using motion capture software we record your every movement through the pedal stroke, measure leg extension and track key points on your body through the pedalling action. This gives you a clear picture of your posture on the bike and pedalling action both before and after your bike fit .

Here at York Cycleworks, we are really proud to work with one of the countries most talented frame builders, Ricky Feather. Working closely with Ricky we ensure that his clients' custom built frames are truly bespoke. Ricky's bike building process starts with a bike fit at York Cycleworks before Ricky even considers the blend of tubing which will best suit you riding style. 

There are occasions where an underlying physical issue or injury may be hampering your performance and there is only so much that a bike fit can do. In this instance we can refer you on to our tame physiotherapist, Ed Nicholson of Core Fitness and Physiotherapy who now runs clinics at York Cycleworks.
