Bike Fit

Looking to improve comfort, ride longer or faster?

Riding a bike is fun. Lets help you get more enjoyment, or performance, from your bike time by helping you get set-up correctly for your individual biomechanics.

How often should I check my bike fit?

Every year we get older, more or less flexible, lighter or maybe heavier, ride more, or less. In short your Bike Fit is dynamic, and something we should all look at annually.

Full 'bike fit' or partial, which one is right for you?

If you are after a 'basic set-up' on your bike to make sure your saddle is at the right height and your 'reach' is as comfortable as possible then a bike sizing might be all you need. In this service we also cover some aspects of our more advanced bike fit to assess elements of foot and saddle comfort. This is a '2D', on the bike fit that does not include a full suite of biomechanical assessments.

A Bike Sizing is ideal for riders newer to cycling and / or a more experienced cyclist who thinks their bike fit might be ok but wants to check. Find out what is covered further down the page.

You can make a booking, and select your 'Fit Slot time and date' at the booking widget located further down the page. For any questions email us here info@iride.net.nz.
