SHOULD I GET A TIME TRIAL BIKE FIT?
Do you want to get the best possible time? Then absolutely, you need to get a time trial bike fit. A good bike fitting is important for all cyclists. For a time trial ride you need a road worthy bike and, like www.cyclingtimetrials.org says: “…assuming the bike is at least half decent, with road tyres, the biggest effect on your speed (apart from your fitness!) is not the machine but your position on it.”
Enter The Bike Tailor.
It’s not just about your power and time – you have to be comfortable. Time trial cycling can take you anywhere from newly tarmacked roads to less-than-smooth, pot-holed roads. Fitting your bike properly will mean you can ride faster and happier.
THE TIME TRIALBIKE SET UP
To us, it’s as important as your training: if you can set up your bike properly now, on the day of the race you won’t even notice your bike is there at all. Making your bike comfortable is about looking at the parts where your body connects with the bike and everything in between, such as your knee tension and core position.
We offer ISM, Fizik and Fabric saddles, which are the ideal saddle for a time trial. And we’re the only bike fitters in the UK to offer a ‘try before you buy’ on saddles. That’s how important we think a bike fit is!
At The Bike Tailor we have a lot of experience – and loads of enthusiasm – which we will apply, in tandem with our professional software, to spot improvements and potential problems.
IS A TIME TRIAL BIKE FITTING WORTH IT?
You know what we’re going to say to that question: totally, we think a good TT bike fit is worth it! You can research all the advice about cycling in the world, but nothing equates to getting a professional to measure your unique body and making your bike a part of you. We’ll get all your time trial fitting angles just right, just for you.
Even after your first fitting, a lot can change such as getting injuries, having a baby, or simply getting older! So we advise getting your bike serviced every couple of years.
