What our clients are saying about us

Mark

Hi Craig Bike feels great. Since seeing you I have been able to conquer: Taupo Cycle Challenge, Hautacam, Col du Tormalet, Col d’Aubisque, Alpe D Heuz, Mont Vontoux, Col D Izoard, and a few others.. I might get a new bike next year. Will it be a challenge to find one that suits a longer torso like me?

Alistair

Hi ya Craig! Well, I knocked the Trans Am off. Just over 6800km in 27 days and four hours. It was torture. Crazy hot in Oregon and through Kansas and Kentucky, low to mid 40s. There were some real lows, but they were offset by amazing scenery, history, incredibly nice people and some great roads to ride. The bike fit worked really well. I didn’t get any aches or pains, not even a slight back ache. Apart from feeling extremely fatigued, I have zero problems after the ride. Thanks for an awesome fit.

Hi Craig, This is currently my facebook status…..
“It’s quite amazing what a good fit & proper innersoles on my cycling shoes did for my numbers. These are numbers from very similar 1 hour sessions 11 days apart but with a couple of fit sessions dailing in the bike between them… 26.5 km/hr @ 153w avg and an average cadance of 81 RPM 30.7 km/hr @ 183w avg and an average cadance of 92 RPM  The big number for me was cadance, I’ve struggled to hold an average cadance over 85 before now and bam I hit 92 without even feeling it. I ♥ my new bike & fit :D”
I’m stoked to say the least, looks like the footbeds & fit have given me a 20% power uplift, I’m stoked with that!

Brendon

Hi Craig, Just wanted to say thanks for the bike fit on Saturday. Got out for an 85km ride yesterday and the bike was largely fantastic. It felt like it was 15 – 20% easier and smoother to pedal, despite the really windy conditions. Will take a few more rides to get used to standing up with the new handlebars and stem but confident that will come in time and also when that longer stem is fitted. Footbeds are feeling great and combined with the cleat adjustments, correction of those angles and seat height it’s a significantly better experience. ITB’s feel much less strained also. I learned a lot about cycling this weekend and now feel much more in control, with only a couple small areas left to focus on as the 11th of December draws closer.

Level 3 Fit – $300 (2.5hrs) 

Our Level 3 Fit is performed on a fully adjustable custom fit cycle, The Custom fit cycle is one of the most accurate systems in the world, The reason for this is the fit cycle is adjusted to your bodies ideal position, Your posture is monitored and all your body Angles are fine tuned to the nearest degree making you very comfortable but also extremely powerful. The measurements taken are known as Contact points (Where your body contacts the bike) i.e. Saddle height and fore and aft, pedals, Handlebar Reach and Drop. These contact point measurements are your position in numbers or if you prefer your digital position. These Measurements are taken from the Custom fit cycle and are one by one transfered to you’re existing bike, this way when the bike is set up you will know exactly how far your bike is out from your ideal measurements to the nearest millimeter.

Pre Purchase Fit – $150 (45 Mins) 

Purchasing a new bike can be a daunting experience. Which size bike is the correct one for me? What Brand? What material etc.
The usual procedure when you walk in to a bike shop is to tell you that you are a Medium and point you to a bike they have on the floor. If you are lucky they will perform a 15-20 min set up on that bike and then send you on your way. The problem is how did they know what your flexibility was like and what your ideal drop from saddle to bars would be? I believe that a persons ideal body measurements/Angles and flexibility should be worked out before even looking at a bike. This is why we introduced Pre purchase fit. A pre purchase fit consists of the clients ideal body-bike contact points being taken on the size cycle and then transferring them into a unique CAD program, using this program we can work out your full ideal frame geometry and then work out which Bikes within your budget fall closest to these perimeters.

IDEAL FOR – ROAD / TRI / MTB / HYBRID / CITY AND E-BIKE

Includes:

Ideal body angle adjustments
Fully drawn up bike CAD drawing
Help and support with purchasing your new bike from any shop or online store.

Custom Footbeds – $180 (45 Mins) 

Although we can supply over the counter footbeds i would never recommend them, the reason is that you need 100% coverage for all your weight to be evenly distributed over the footbeds total area, without this the footbed simply becomes a form of arch support. You really cannot compare the two. A stock footbed left will be a mirror image of the right (a person very rarely has identical feet left to right)

IDEAL FOR – CYCLISTS / TRIATHLETES / RUNNERS / WALKERS / GOLF AND TENNIS PLAYERS ETC

Includes:

Custom Footbeds

Fitting-  inc the molding process

Fitting of footbeds and trimming to fit shoes.
