Great bike fit for LEJOG
Had a bike fit with Adam about 4 months before a lands end to John O'Groats ride. Before the fit I suffered from 50 year old knee pains, saddle soreness and general aches. During LEJOG, 900+ miles in 9 days, I had no problems whatsoever, felt great and could have carried on longer. Tweaks at a bike fit may not seem much but Adam has proven he knows his stuff, he also gave me exercises that also helped with cramping issues. I'd recommend a bike fit and Adam in particular to anyone. I also had no punctures, mechanicals or a single drop of rain but can't thank Adam for any of those !
Don't hesistate, book now!
I ‘m just writing to say a massive thank you! I complete LEJOG last week and my bike set up was perfect. I didn\'t have one ache or pain, no back ache, nothing over the entire 9 days. The ride was absolutely fantastic. I held my own against my peers, especially on the hills. I am sure my last few weeks of training, directed by your suggestions on hill climbing definitely helped.
For anyone considering having a bike fit all I can say is don\'t hesitate. Adam advised me to have a bike sizing done before I bought my bike as I wanted to buy one online. And to be honest, I did think at the time this was potentially unnecessary. But I was convinced, within 30 minutes of arriving. His attention to detail was fantastic. This was money well spent as not only did Adam advise on the right size (I would have ordered the wrong size) but he also gave me advice on makes to avoid as the bike geometry wouldn\'t suit me. He is so knowledgeable you can ask him anything about bikes and he will be able to help. I was able to buy my bike with confidence (online - thus saving heaps of money) and then went back for a Retul fit including sorting my cleats. My road bike is so comfortable, it is unbelievable. During my fitting I also got great advice on training too which helped immensely. If you\'re unsure about going for either the pre-fitting or Retul fit, don\'t hesitate, it is money well spent and you won\'t regret it.
Bike fit review
I\'ve just finished riding from Land\'s End to John o\'Groats – 981 miles in 9 days – and thought that now was a good time to give you some feedback on the impact of the bike-fit session you had with me.
Prior to coming along, any long ride that I cycled was marked by the onset of back pain and knee pain. After each ride, I felt and walked around like a man 20 years older than I was. Of course, being 52, I had assumed that this was an inevitable consequence of the ageing process, until that is, I came to you.
Following the bike-fit, I have had no pain problems at all. None. Everything held up really well over my LEJOG training as well as over the ride itself – no pain in either back or knees.
So Adam, thanks very much for taking the time to get me sorted – the process worked a treat and I couldn\'t be happier with the outcome. I will unhesitatingly recommend you to anyone who might benefit from such a session.
Best money I have spent on cycling
Initially hesitant in booking in for a bike fitting, but with a big event coming up and suffering from pains in my knees I thought it was worth a punt, and I am so glad I did!
Completely changed the set up of my bike and after following instructions of small rides to let the changes 'bed in' I attempted a 170 mile trip after a week and had never felt better, more power and more confortable.
Bike now almost feels part of me and do not suffer any discomfort at all.
Adam is very friendly and you get the impression he genuinly wants to help out and allow you to enjoy cycling even more. his after visit care is also superb.
I am more than comfortable to make a strong recommendation to use Adam, you wil not regret it!
Don't hesitate - book it!
I guess that many people reading this are perhaps a bit hesitant over spending the money on a pro bike fit - maybe even a tad sceptical. Don't be... I spent almost four hours with Adam back in early July, having both my road bikes properly fitted. His extensive knowledge is undeniable, his attention to detail incredible and his desire to get the very best out of it for YOU as the customer, totally refreshing. First of all, Adam uses a trained eye and his considerable experience to analyse your cycling to see where improvements can be made and only after that does he support his conclusions with the RETUL system - he doesn't just wire you up to the machine straight away and rely on what it says. Great care and a lot of time is taken to make sure you understand what is happening as you cycle, why you aren't as comfortable on the bike as you perhaps should be and what changes can be made to resolve those issues. After nearly two months since my fitting, I am absolutely delighted with the difference those four hours have made to my cycling in terms of enjoyment and performance. My lower back pain has gone, the shoulder discomfort has virtually disappeared and my average times are getting steadily faster. From my point of view, it was money very well spent and probably the best value that I could possibly have achieved for spending the money in terms of how it has transformed my cycling. Don't hesitate - do it!
Training Camp Support
Adam spent a weekend with our club at a training camp in North Wales helping us prepare for our Alpine challenge in August. He brought his skills and knowledge to a whole array of roles we asked him to fulfil - coach, nutritionist, conditioning trainer, motivator, mechanic, feed zone saviour - and was a key ingredient of a successful camp. We all learned a lot from Adam that was practical, applicable and appropriate to the riding levels of a very mixed group. So if you want a multi-skilled cycling expert for a club event, Adam's your man!
Money well spent
Put simply, if I hadn't been to see Adam, I'd have bought the wrong size bike (almost certainly too small). I went to Adam as it was not easy for my local bike shop to get the bike I wanted for a trial. Even if I'd gone down that route, I'm sure that sizing would have been hit and miss. Adam sat me on his sizing machine and very patiently explained all the issues, not least the difference between measuring a bike by effective top tube length (bad) and stack/reach (good). Armed with the information from Adam, I later ordered my bike and a few months on I'm pleased as punch. There's certainly more I can do to get the setup correct, as I haven't changed the stem length, or fiddled about too much with the saddle fore/aft, so I'll be back to Adam some time this summer. I would not hesitate to recommend Adam.
From MTB to Road bike
I\'m a mountain biker that wanted to get on a road bike & do some big miles with my mates but never felt comfortable. I did a lot of on-line research & chose Adam (I didn\'t want to be in a shop with lots of interruptions). What a difference it made. The first ride out felt great & I no longer got the lower back pain I had been experiencing. Two weeks later I doubled my miles to 80 for my first sportive & finished it with ease & no pain. The alterations to my shoes have also helped enormously. Highly recommended. Thank You (from someone who never normally leaves reviews).
Just an update on how it\'s all going. I now have the new handlebars that you suggested and have been out twice since they have been fitted (30miles and 20 miles). What a fantastic improvement. I am using the drops so much more and the whole position is so much better. The only thing is is that my left leg has realised that it now has to do some of the work but that is a good thing! It just goes to show how lop sided I was.
So thanks again for getting me all set up in the right position so that my cycling experience is so much improved. I will definitely be recommending you to people that need a bike fit.
Fitting for Ride London 100
First I must apologise to Adam for the late submission of this report - hopefullyt better late than never.
I set out last year to do the Ride London 100 - in Jan I could only manage 20 miles, so unlike many other, it was some challenge.
It was very late in the day - 3 weeks to go in fact - when I went to Adam for a bike fitting having been referred by a friend and I was a wondering whether it was a good thing to do at that stage.
I need not have worried. The process Adam adopted was both meticulous and reassuring and it did actually change my riding position rather more than we both expected at the outset, but it was immensly to the better.From the get-go the position felt so much more comfortable and effective and I quickly found myself being comfortable riding for longer between breaks. It also cured a naggling muscle irritation I would suffer from when starting out on a ride.
I completed the ride in 5 1/2 hours which was about 2 hours quicker than I expected!
Great job Adam.
