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.
After visiting Freespeed & Richard I am feeling more aero and importantly more comfortable which is vital during long distance racing. Richard is very passionate about triathlon & his work and this comes across during the session. He explains any changes so you can relate to what is going on & at the same time makes you feel very relaxed. First class service and would highly recommend.
I went to see Richard because my bike was extremely uncomfortable and made riding a chore. Richard’s fitting not only helped me to get more comfortable, but made my setup safer and faster as well. Happy to say that cycling is a joy again and I’m excited to ride in a way I haven’t been in recent years!
Having a bike fit with Richard is a fabulous and very valuable experience, I cannot recommend him enough, the difference in comfort and efficiency on my bike now is incredible, you will be amazed with the end result, I’m now going quicker with less effort. Without a doubt the best in depth bike fit out there.
I had a really interesting session with Richard, and was amazed how a few simple tweaks can make such a difference to my ride position! I look forward to seeing the results out on the road. I will be recommending a bike fit with him to all my cycling buddies.
Richard gives so much time, attention and thought to the service he delivers. I came away feeling confident about my TT position and excited to get out on my bike for training. I know his time and effort will help my racing and I am extremely grateful for his expert input. Most importantly, we had fun and chatted our way through the whole thing.
Richard is extremely personable, has a wealth of knowledge but most importantly really takes his time to get things absolutely right. He also makes sure you understand the rationale of his changes as you go along. For someone like me, who is ramping up their riding, its a real education.
Overall I now feel more comfortable, stronger and confident on the bike.
Amazing how just a few slight tweaks to the position got me into a much more professional and comfortable looking position. It is great to have someone spend so much time with you on something like this to get it right. The amount of variables on a bike and how they interact with each other seems to be something that Richard has built up excellent experience of understanding.
