Bike fitting

Be one with your bike

A Body Geometry Fit is the best investment you can make in your cycling. It helps maximise your power, endurance, and comfort by making your bike fit you perfectly - no matter what type of riding you do. And, with the Retül Müve dynamic fitting bike, our trained Body Geometry Fit specialists can find your perfect position even more quickly and accurately - helping you be one with your bike.

What is a bike fit?

The term ‘bike fit’ is thrown around quite liberally by the bike industry, with many different services labelled ‘bike fit’.

In our view there is only one true definition of a bike fit: it is a comprehensive and detailed consultation process, where real bio-mechanical evaluation is paired with exploration of injury history and personal goals to establish a rider’s neutral position. If it doesn’t involve this level of detail, it’s not a bike fit – it’s a bike sizing.

Why Body Geometry Fit?

Body Geometry Fit is the most effective and comprehensive approach to bike fit available today, enabling riders to maximise power, endurance, and comfort. It has been developed by Specialized over the last decade in partnership with Dr. Andy Pruitt Ed.D., PA of the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine in Colorado, USA.

During a Body Geometry Fit, one of our trained specialists assesses your individual needs and systematically tailor your bike position and equipment to your body. Our technicians do not work in isolation, either: they also benefit from the support and knowledge of the global Body Geometry Fit community. With a Body Geometry Fit, you’re not just relying on one fitter’s experience – you get the benefit of a whole world of fitting expertise.

The Retül Müve

One of the key tools we use during our fitting process is the Retül Müve dynamic fitting bike. This enables your fit specialist to replicate any bike position and make immediate adjustments. Once your position is established on the Müve, the details can be transferred to your bike.

The Müve makes bike fitting faster, more efficient and gives you a better understanding of the importance of fit to your performance.

We can also use the Retül Müve to replicate the dimensions of any bike, meaning we can ensure you get the right size bike for you before you put down your hard-earned cash – even if we don’r have it in stock.

What people are saying

“A massive thanks to the team at Cyclery Northside…”

Rebecca Hosckhe - Ironman winner and Professional Triathlete

“To win Ironman Australia 2013 and earn the title of female champion 2013, is a huge personal achievement. A massive thanks to the team at Cyclery Northside who were a big part of this result.  This experience says it all in my mind – that my new bike position is a huge step forward towards further improving my strength in the bike leg and overall potential in the sport.  Cyclery Northside have an experienced team of Body Geometry Fit Technicians and a genuine, approachable and high standard of customer service.  Establishing a positive relationship is an essential part of any cycling experience and I feel extremely fortunate to be working with such a fantastic team”

“The results were amazing…”

David H.

“I arrived home and put the bike straight on the computrainer and the results were amazing. As I mentioned I was getting below 50% efficiency while in the aero position before the BG fit. I immediately felt more power and control over my pedal stroke and was holding high 60% efficiency while in the aero position and low 80% when coming off the aero bars. I did feel more even with applied pressure on the pedals and I am sure with training I will build my efficiency a lot higher.”

“Thought my position was good before but WAY better now…”

Phil - Specialized Camber Pro 29er

Got a Body Geometry Fit from Jeff prior to Scott 24hr on my Camber Pro 29er. He worked out my flexibility probs (many) and I got new wider (155mm) seat, new shoe inserts, moved saddle possie, moved cleats back, longer lower stem. – less tired, more comfy over the 24hr and 100k races I do. VERY happy!
