Bike Set Up

Why get a Bike Set Up?

We aim to create a cycling environment that looks at YOU, not just your bike.  Too often we see cyclists in aggressive positions that their bodies aren’t able to sustain.  This ultimately results in fatigue and injury.  We aim to make your body more suitable to the riding position, and a better fit between you and your bike.

At PhysioSport qualified and experienced physiotherapists use Retül technologies; a cycling specific motion-capture bike fit system designed to provide accurate and comprehensive bike fit data.  This uses a 3 dimensional digitised camera and electrode markers on the cyclist to accurately measure joint angles.  Bike set ups with a difference, we change you as well as the bike!

Key concepts of Retül:

1. Bike fits must be dynamic

Retül records the rider’s positions in motion, creating a realistic picture of the rider’s actual pedal strokes and body positions when out on the road and trails.

2. Measurements must be accurate

Measurements made by traditional tools are subject to human error and can be inaccurate. The Retül system is accurate to within less than a millimetre, which can be utilised by the fitter for the perfect biomechanical fit.

3. Biomechanics are best assessed in 3D space

Retül uses a 3D motion sensor to simultaneously gather data on multiple angles of the rider.
