Total Endurance Bike Fitting

"Bit of an update for you following my bike fit last Friday. I went out on Sunday for 60 miles and it felt so much better. More power through the pedal stroke but using less energy. Climbing was easier and I generally felt more assured and in a better position on the bike. Even my saddle felt better. My only regret is not having done this years ago. I've already had a few PR's on Strava so the proof is right there. Thank you for your assistance and knowledge in making my cycling more enjoyable".

Total Endurance Bike Fit Triangle


A bike fit is a essential for all cyclists, regardless of skill level or goals.

The Total Endurance Bike Fit encompasses aerodynamics, power output, and comfort, with the ideal mix varying depending on one's cycling aims.

During the fitting process, we use a combination of science, technology, rider feedback, and over 25 years of bike fitting experience to achieve the most efficient and comfortable position on the bike.

Personal biomechanics and goals are also taken into account, with improvements such as increased comfort, handling, power output, reduced injury risk, and reduced pain and numbness being some of the benefits of a bike fit.

You don't have to be an elite bike rider to benefit hugely from having the best possible position on your bike. We use a mixture for science and technology, rider feedback and 25+ years of experience to put you into the most comfortable and efficient position on your bike, taking into account your unique physiology, flexibility and cycling goals.

There is no "one size fits all" as we are all different shapes and sizes with differing amounts of flexibility and different aims and goals.  During your bikefit we work with you to achieve the optimum fit for you..

 Some benefits of undertaking a bike fit include:

  • Improved comfort
  • Improved handling and safety
  • Improved power output
  • Reduced injury risk
  • Reduced pain and numbness
  • Improved saddle comfort
  • Reduced fatigue

 Your bikefit will take into account your personal biomechanics and your goals on the bike. Every bikefit is a compromise between comfort, power and aerodynamics. If your goal is to ride long tours and Sportives where comfort is the most important characteristic then your position will be different to somebody who wants to ride short criteriums where we would be much more focused on power and aerodynamics.

Bikefit Process:

The process starts with a discussion about your current position, any problems or injuries you have been having and a check on your biomechanics and flexibility. We will also discuss your goals and aims on the bike.

We will check the cleat position on your shoes and adjust them if necessary.

Once we are ready to start the fit we will allow you to warm up and then we will start to take short videos with our Dartfish software which allows us to measure ankle, knee, hip and shoulder angles so that we can monitor changes until we achieve the best position for you. We will discuss the reasons for each change and  If we have identified any abnormalities such as different leg lengths or injuries causing reduced mobility then we will take these into account.

The normal order of changes for a bikefit is.

  • Shoe cleat position

Checking cleat position during bike fit

  • Saddle angle

Checking the correct saddle angle at total endurance bike fitting

  • Saddle height

  • Saddle fore/aft position

  • Handlebar width
Handle bar width
  • Handlebar height and reach and angle

  • Knee tracking

In addition to the steps above we may also include an IDMatch saddle assessment (click here for more infromation on our saddle fitting) if you have been suffering saddle discomfort which we think may be related to saddle type and IDMatch cleat fit if we do not believe that we have achieved a correct cleat position by on bike assessment. 

Bikefit is an iterative process and making a change to one measurement also alters other measurements we have to repeatedly have to work through a number of steps until we achieve the optimum position.  As an example, altering saddle fore/aft position will also alter saddle height measured from the centre of the bottom bracket.

Bikefit is not a one off process, we appreciate that going out for a long ride is different to the relatively short rides during the fit so if your normal training highlights any issues with your fit we will revisit it and adapt your position if necessary.

The process for fitting you on a TT or Triathlon bike is very similar but there are a few additional steps.  Check here for additional fit information for TT and Tri bikes.

Q: What is a bike fit?

A: A bike fit is the process of adjusting the bike's components to achieve the most comfortable and efficient position for the rider based on their unique physiology and cycling goals.

Q: What are the benefits of a bike fit?

A: Some benefits of a bike fit include improved comfort, handling, safety, power output, reduced injury risk, reduced pain and numbness, improved saddle comfort, and reduced fatigue.

Q: What does the bikefit process involve?

A: The bikefit process involves a discussion about the rider's current position, any problems or injuries they have been having, and a check on their biomechanics and flexibility. The process also includes checking the cleat position on the rider's shoes, taking short videos with Dartfish software to measure ankle, knee, hip, and shoulder angles, and making adjustments to components such as saddle angle, height, and fore/aft position, handlebar width, height, reach, and angle, and knee tracking.

Q: Is a bikefit a one-off process?

A: No, a bikefit is not a one-off process. It may need to be revisited and adapted if issues arise during normal training.

Q: What are some common bike position faults?

A: Some common bike position faults include a saddle that is too low, handlebars that are too far away or too high, and improper cleat position on the shoes.
