Getting a bike fitted professionally

  • 22-08-2021 8:54pm

    Sorry I may have asked this before but can't find the thread.

    Unfortunately we are coming to the end of summer so I decided to treat myself to a new smart bike trainer and make an effort to get back into cycling as much as I used to.  

    Today I had to abandon one of my workouts due to how uncomfortable I was on the bike, could anyone recommend a professional bike fitter unfortunately I don't currently drive so somewhere within easy reach cycling distance of a train station.  

    I live in Mayo so ideally I'd prefer to go to someone local.

    Hope everyone had a great weekend.

    I'm Mayo based but honestly, its well worth the travel to get fitted by Aidan Hammond in Wicklow.

    I'd second Aidan, got a bike fit from hit at the end of July and it's made a big difference

  • Thanks I was thinking of going to see him, unfortunately he's booked out until October.

    In the meantime time if anyone else is interested I found an interesting app although unfortunately it's only available on iOS devices and you will need a tripod.

    The app is called Bike Fit Elite it costs €10 it's basically a video analysis tool that captures a video of you on the bike and allows you to select the different points needed for a bike fit.

    I probably did a bad job of describing it so here is their website.
