Bike Fitting

Why Physiohaus?

We utilise world leading cycling analysis technology to accurately assess your position and cycling technique. We have a fully equipped and class leading bike fit studio where we are able to optimise your bike set up to maximise your comfort and performance.

Our bike fitters are regarded as some of the most experienced in the world and have worked with the worlds best professional cycling teams and triathletes. As physiotherapists  we are able to understand your physical conditioning in more detail and make informed decisions about how to get the most out of your body.

If you are looking to buy a new bike, we use a highly adjustable bike fitting jig to help us determine your optimal position. This allows us to help you find the right bike for you to achieve your goals.

Our Approach

We start with an interview in order to understand your aims, goals and get some information on your background and injury history. 


Secondly we carry out a physical evaluation so that we know as much as we can about your body before analysing your movement on the bike. We test your flexibility, stability and strength through a series of simple tests. This information can be used as a baseline and we can re-test during any follow up sessions to measure your progress if we identify any areas of opportunity for improvement in your training away from the bike.


The valuable information from the interview and physical evaluation is used during the session to help us in the decision making process around how we optimise your position and chose the right equipment for you.


If you bring in your own bike then we will set it up in our Wahoo Kickr smart trainer and   measure your current set up before getting you to start riding. If you don’t currently have a bike or you want to explore further position possibilities we will establish a starting position on our Retul Muve bike fit jig where we can experiment with infinite position options and make changes whilst you ride.


We will then begin to analyse your position and technique, including shoe and cleat set up, saddle selection, knee tracking and pelvic mechanics,  using a combination of Retul 3D motion capture and Dartfish video analysis. Our Advance Bike Fit includes additional analysis using Gebiomized saddle pressure mapping OR RS Scan foot pressure analysis. 


Once we have collated the data and information we will explain our findings to you before advising on and making any changes and interventions that are necessary.

We will repeat the analysis process until we have your position dialled in before measuring the bike again to create an individual report which will be sent to you after the session by email alongside any advice on training or exercises. 

We offer a menu of bike fitting services depending on your requirements.


Please bring your bike, cycling kit and cycling shoes and ensure the bike is clean and in good working order. For TT/Triathlon bikes please bring any frame /cockpit spares in case required for adjustments.
