About The Cycling Bike Fit Assessment

Our Cycling Bike Fit assessments in Geelong are performed by a certified bike fitter and member of the International Bike Fitting Institute (IBFI).

If you ride, you’ll know that comfort is a premium when you are on the bike for hours at a time. As cyclists, we can understand how important feeling comfortable on the bike is and how frustrating pain while riding can be.

A keen cyclist, Luke has combined his experience and knowledge of biomechanics and combined it with further education in bike fit to provide a thorough detailed assessment of the body, injury and the bike. We discuss your goals, injury history and assess your biomechanics off the bike as much as on it.

Note: This assessment is specific to road and time trial cycling not MTB
