There are a few local shops eg. Cycleworks that do bike fit. For the full experience (a £250 :)) try Pearson’s Sheen*. Their Cycle Fit is fully customised (hydraulic stationary cycle that can vary every dimension, eg cranks, stem, bars etc..) with power meter and video recording. Probably worthwhile. *good friend of mine but still a valid recommendation
I got one as a freebie due to a mixup on a bike order with LBS. An hour and a half well spent, informative and I picked up a few things that I hadn’t noticed, even after many yrs of riding. Worthwhile if you have any niggles or doubts on setup IMO
I’m the bike fit technician at Pedal Heaven, Fleet (so near you!) Feel free to give me a call and I’ll be more than happy to talk you through the benefits or give you some advice.
Mike, sorry, what I meant is that bike size is more down to reach rather than height, so if you have a long back you could need a 59 with a 110 stem, or if a short back you might be more comfy on a 56 with a 100 mm stem
Geared bikes in Chichester are really good. If I remember correctly its about £120. I don’t road ride anymore, but have done the London to Paris a few times. First time I just put the saddle up and rode (lots of pain) second time, had Geared do a fit. No pain at all. I had the bike set up for comfort rather than speed due to the high distance. Personally, I think it’s a must for road riders as you get more power out of your legs if the bike is set up correctly.
Wouldn’t bother on the MTB as I’m not in the saddle enough.
