Bike Fit

You will fit your bike….. & your bike will fit you!

bikefit

Bike Fit is designed to make you sit more comfortably on your bike and to help you ride more efficiently. The result is you are not only able to ride a lot further but also a lot quicker!!

Often bike fits are designed to find this ‘optimal position’ on the bike based on your size & your bike’s size…….. the difference with us is that we evaluate YOU – your past / current injuries, body type, strength, flexibility and what you want to get out of your cycling…….not all of us ride with the aim to be World Champion!

All Bike Fit sessions are claimable on HICAPS / Private Health Cover** if you have Extras, Enhanced Primary Care Program (Medicare)** and Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA), if it is part our Physiotherapy Management of your condition. We do not treat TAC & Workcover funded clients
 

 

Our Bike Fitting Process

Level 1 – Basic

A basic history, measurement of you & your bike is undertaken with a physical assessment of a single area of the body. We will get you riding on the wind-trainer prior to bike adjustments and make the initial suggested changes to your bike for you to again test on the wind-trainer. You will be given a copy of the assessment with what we assess to be your ‘optimum’ bike set up position. It can take multiple small step adjustments to your bike over time which you can undertake yourself or be reviewed back in the clinic under a standard consultation.
