Expert bike fitting, complimentary with your new bike.
Why is getting the right bike size important?
Most bike models offer a selection of frame sizes, and depending on the bike model, there could be seven or more frame size options! Getting the wrong size can make for really poor bike performance, so getting fitted to your bike is an absolute must.
With every new bike purchase, our trained consultants will ensure you are matched to the correct bike size.
Why can't I just use my height to determine frame size?
A couple centimetres of difference between frame sizes might not seem like much, but it can have a massive impact when you begin riding. Before your frame size can be correctly determined, there are several body measurements which need to be considered, knowing your height is just not enough.
What's the value in this service for me?
