Is booking a bike fitting session a good idea?
Whos good around Guildford area, willing to travel a bit. Cheers thanks!

Road bike? I’d say so.
Mountain bike? Questionable.Posted 6 years ago

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 recommendationPosted 6 years ago
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 IMOPosted 6 years ago

I’m 6ft and on a 59cm with a 100mm stem… so I think starting a fresh with a 55cm-56cm with a bike fit, so the 59cm is a huge doubt/niggle…Posted 6 years ago
Mike – it’s all about reach, rather than height, but worth trying other setupsPosted 6 years ago

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 stemPosted 6 years ago
I had one done, well worth it.Posted 6 years ago
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.Posted 6 years ago
Wouldn’t bother on the MTB as I’m not in the saddle enough.
