  • Dynamic Retül bike fitting will match you to your bike.
  • York's best-equipped and stocked workshop to set up your bike.
  • Showering and changing facilities for your comfort.

  • Therapy services to address any physical niggles.

The Fit

Riding a bicycle subjects the body to repetitive stresses over lengthy periods of time. What may start as an occasional niggle can steadily develop into something more uncomfortable or even damaging. Optimising the riding position bio-mechanically not only minimises discomfort, but also maximises your riding efficiency - improving power transfer from rider to bicycle. You can ride further, faster and in more comfort.

We have a relaxed, private studio upstairs for Retül bike fitting and any associated therapies as well as showering and changing facilities. A bike fitting consultation usually lasts about 2 hours.

Please note that all bike fitting must be by appointment - call 01904 636578/651870 to make an appointment.

RETÜL Bike fit - £180

RETÜL 2-bike fit - £300

RETÜL Redial - £90 (setting up other additional bikes after a fit)
