FAQs

How is this different from a bike shop set up, or bikefit done by Specialized or Retul?

A Proform bikefit takes into consideration your functional needs and applies them to make your bike fit you. This makes your bike set up as individualized as possible.

Its not just about numbers and angles, its about comfort and function, combined with optimal fit.

Why would I need a follow up appointment?

“Shouldn’t is be 100% after the first appointment ?”

Not necessarily. The human body is constantly adapting and changing and needs time to adapt to the changes we make to the bike set up.

For example:

Cyclist aim – to get a lower more aggressive position, to go faster.

Cyclist body may not cope with an extreme change in joint angles immediately. There may be strength issues that need correcting before the “optimal” position can be obtained.

A follow up after 4-6 weeks allows for natural adaptation and reinforcement of new motor patterns. During the follow up session, further changes can be made and strength re-tested.

What if I have issues after my Bikefit with pain or discomfort?

Rhianon is contactable via email post appointment until the follow up.

Advice can be given via email and if necessary, Rhianon can arrange to speak over the phone if the issue cannot be resolved via email.

A follow up session is included in the fee for the Ultra Proform Bikefit. Adjustments can be made if there are any issues with the fit of the bike at this time.
