Great session this morning, while we made small improvements I felt my position and interaction with the bike were transformed, I got into a much more aero position AND more comfortable. Above all Richard is a treasure trove of information on bike setup and racing due to his many years of experience working with top athletes – I learnt more in 2 hours than over the last 6 months!
I spent three hours with Richard working on my road and TT bike. He is absolutely an expert in his field. I took my road bike out for the first time since the fit yesterday and it was like riding a new bike. My new position reduced discomfort and maximised power output. I felt like I was floating up the hills and still felt fresh 100k in on a challenging course. Highly recommended.
Wanting to upgrade my bike and sort out some neck pain I was experiencing on long rides a friend recommended Freespeed. Four months on and I am free of neck pain and thoroughly enjoying my new bike. I wasn’t sure if disc brakes were the way to go but having tackled a few horrible downhill’s I haven’t looked back.
Freespeed was highly recommended to me by a few friends after my complaints about problems with lower back. Richard not only fitted both my bikes but also corrected my posture and gave me a few tips about aero position as well as position on my road bike. The outcome was a powerful ride on the following day on my tt bike and guess what – no pain!
My new bike was fitted but just didn’t feel right. It looked an OK fit on initial scan. This is where Richard’s expertise and knowledge came to the fore. A couple of cleat position changes and a couple of really useful technique changes saw me set 8 Strava PR’s on the ride home & continue to set new ones. Feels perfect now!
Richard not only adjusted my bike to fit my size, but he corrected posture, gave tips on positioning to avoid back or shoulder aches on long rides. He was extremely thorough and not only used the latest technology but understood how best to interpret its results.
Richard explained everything in detail, but in a simple way which was very easy to understand. His depth of knowledge and experience, concerning cycling and triathlon is superb. It’s still very early days adapting to the new position, but I can confidently say that I already know I will be cycling faster. I cannot say enough positive things about the bike fit with Freespeed and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Richard. Money wisely invested.
Since the full fitting with Richard, I have cycled 500K and can confidently say that the fitting was a big success. We worked on small adjustments to seating position and the way I ride. The impact is a much better position, better awareness of energy efficiency and literally no knee or back aches which I frequently had in the past. I highly recommended the service!
Next year is big for me with my first long distance triathlon in 10yrs at Challenge Roth, and I wanted to be sure I was getting the most out of my bike setup to go along with all the effort I am putting in with training my body. I had heard great things about Freespeed and I was not disappointed. Subtle changes to bike and my own positioning mean none of my hard work will be wasted.
Had a great fit with Richard, well worth the investment to improve my biking position and learn a few things. Richard was really helpful and a wealth of knowledge. I cannot recommend getting a fit enough. Great communication before and after the fit and a genuine motivation to provide a quality service.
