Bike fit

Hi Adam,

Just wanted to thank you for your help with the bike setup before Red Bull Timelaps. The event itself was an incredible experience but the weather could have been better as we experienced some really high winds on the Saturday and the rain did not stop until quite late into the night. Many of the teams were having real difficulties keeping their gazebos and marquees tied to the ground and some of them even ended up clearing the enclosure and ending up on the course.

This made the event very hard to start with and the high winds meant that those with deep sections wheels (such as myself) had to hold on tight to stop coming off the course. Although it was tough going at times I never felt out of control and the bike was set up perfectly for me. Having a bike I could trust though some of the fast corners on the course meant that I had the confidence to push hard and I felt in full control. I had a few issues in the night where I punctured leaving the pit area on my way to doing the power hour at 2am. I had to run back to the pits and change my tube, as the one I had in my pocket was faulty, but in my haste I left my tyre levers behind. Due to all the debris on the track I then experienced another puncture on the furthest part of the track which I had to fix without my levers. This is tricky enough to do but at 3am in the dark with no sleep it was very hard. Eventually I managed to do it before heading back to the pits for my next team mate to take over.

My next stint on the course was when the sun rose and the sky had cleared, which meant a lovely blue sky, and this certainly lifted my spirits.

Overall it was a great experience and something I’ll remember. Whether I’ll do it again is another story!

Thanks again,

Paul

Brilliant!

Had my first bike fit with Adam and was super impressed with his professionalism and knowledge! He took the time to first get to the bottom of what was causing my aches and pains on and off the bike. This was then translated into setting the bike up and what a difference! More power and efficiency, especially up hills and I felt like doing another 50k when I got home! The excersises Adam gave me to continue improving my issues have been excellent so far and I will continue with these going forward. Every cyclist should get a bike fit and I highly recommend Adam for this!

Awesome service

Thanks to Adam to making me more comfortable on my bike! It is 3 hours well spent!

A huge thank you

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for all of your help.

I've had two club rides on the Canyon now, and I'm climbing like a demon!

I suspect there are a number of factors:

* a better, lighter bike
* I'm doing a Watt Bike session every week
* everybody else is riding their winter bikes!

But, the overwhelming difference is the set up. I'm staying fresh through the rides, no pain (I didn't realise what that felt like) and I always just want to push on, rather than just hanging on!

At the end of my first 45 miler I had enough energy to set the fourth best time ever up the hill I live on!

You've transformed my riding, and I'm very grateful!

Thanks very much, and have a great Christmas!

Just awesome

I was looking into getting a bike fit done after buying a new bike and having a few long distance triathlons booked it. I was recommended Adam by one of the coaches in my triathlon club. And what a recommendation it was.
Booked in with Adam for a Retul bike fit. After 3 hours of stretches, adjusts and pedaling we were done. I honestly didn't realise how much went into a bike fit. Adam started with questions about what I wanted from the bike fit and If I had or have any problems with my current bike fit.
Adam them assessed my flexibility, or not so in my case. Then went in to show me exercises I should be doing to improve my flexibility and what I should be stretching and rolling. I can openly say I learnt a lot.
Then it was on to the bike. Cleats and shoes adjust, seat raised and adjusted and stem dropped. In no time I had awesome and much better fitting bike. Adam also spent time setting up my clip on aero bars. So I was much more comfortable and able to relax on them.
After a couple of short 12/15miles rides to get used to the new fit. Then yesterday after my first 45mile longest ride since the bike fit. All I can say is WOW! Just amazing. The bike feels aweosme. More Comfort. Feels like I have more Power. I even enjoyed climbing the hills. Well kind of.
Just want to say a massive thank you to Adam for not just a great bike fit. But also for his knowledge and advise. Learnt so much in the 3 hours I was there.
If you're thinking of getting Adam to give you a bike fit. Don't thinking about it. JUST DO IT!
Thank you again Adam!

Measurable Improvements

I had a Retul bike fit with Adam in April this year, my cycling performance and comfort on the bike have both improved significantly. In addition to the Retul fit, Adam provided an orthotic support in my right shoe to resolve a long standing issue, made a number of adjustments to my bike and gave me advice on exercises to improve my lower back and hip weakness. His sports science knowledge and Retul expertise enable him to provide a unique and friendly service. Since seeing Adam my average speed has increased and as a direct result of his intervention I have lost over 5 kilos in weight!

Huge thanks Adam!

Adam, another massive thank you for another superb year.
Your analysis, insight and immediate feedback on every session and race has made training an absolute pleasure again this year. What I've loved again is the absolute individuality and tailoring of all my training sessions, blocks, periods, warm-ups, nutrition - the list goes on and on! All with constant discussion, so it not only has a great effect, but has absolutely the right effect for every race. Great job in taking a complete road and circuit racing novice to a 2nd cat racer in 2 years (at the modest age of 38 too!) Looking forward to more of the same in 2017


Matt

Superb service

Have used Adam for last 2 bikes and his service has resulted in perfect riding. He provides all the little tweaks that make long rides easy. Essential to see Adam before you commit to buy your next bike. If the frame geometry is not suited to you and what you want to do even Adam will struggle to make you get what you want out of the bike without expensive modifications. Save money by seeing Adam before you buy. You'll have the ride of your life after using Adam

Can't recommend highly enough

I've worked with Adam now for several years and over four different bikes. He's thorough, professional and incredibly knowledgeable! After taking my first bike to Adam for a fit, I have now consulted with him prior to buying all new bikes to ensure the optimum fit - some of the bikes I was looking at wouldn't have fit me even with adjustments! My cycling has improved a huge amount over the past year, due, at least in part, to his ability to get a bike to fit me like it was made for me! I have no hesitation in recommending Adam and have done so to many friends and colleagues who have all been equally happy! Thank you Adam!

Just perfect

Over the last year Adam has done several fits for me and also for various friends, this morning I booked session for my daughter who's a 'lop sided' rower about to cycle from London to Paris for charity. I had been unable to get her comfortable on any bike but with his expertise and knowledge of physiology she is now happy, in the perfect position and looking forward to the challenge.
I highly recommend you see Adam before you buy a bike or to fix any niggles.
