What is a 'Clinical' Bike Fit?
A bike fit has the capacity to the change the way you ride.
Improving comfort, performance, efficiency, and reducing risk of injury.
The underpinning principle at The Bike The Body is that you should ‘enjoy your ride’. Therefore the philosophy of our Bike Fitting process is that 'you' are at the centre of it.

Sidas Custom Pro Insoles
Your feet sit at the end of the kinetic chain of the lower limb and as such they are the delivery point of all the force you generate to the pedal. Therefore it is critical that this contact point is optimised for both comfort and performance.
Nearly all cycling shoes come with a fairly standard ‘sockliner’ or insole which is little more than a contoured piece of slim foam. It provides very little if any meaningful foot contact, connection or indeed stability. Cycling shoes themselves tend to have pretty rigid soles to improve power transfer and performance. However, this combination can often leave the rider with sore feet, hot spots, and tingling toes. This is where a well design and individualised footbed (insole) comes in.
At The Bike The Body we are delighted to have a state-of-the-art Sidas Custom Foot station where we can mould a completely bespoke set of insoles to the exact contours of both of your feet individually. We use the Custom Pro insole, used and developed by the Astana Pro Cycling team, which provides incredible force transmission, stability and all day comfort.
Sidas Custom Pro insoles can be fitted as part of a Full Bike Fit session or as a standalone session if you are already happy with your current bike fit but just need to upgrade your foot comfort and performance.

I saw Bryan for a bike fit because I had been getting low back pain during longer rides on my road bike. The whole experience was great. The problem has since completely resolved. I couldn’t recommend this service more.
