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.
Richard provides much more than a traditional bike fit service. He is an incredible source of knowledge and advice on all aspects of triathlon.
Richard has a great setup in his studio and made me feel very comfortable. The bike fit was very thorough and he explained everything he was doing and finding with great clarity – and was happy to answer all my questions. Richard went the extra mile of ensuring that my bike was setup correctly for my race the following weekend. Thank you Richard – a fantastic service!
I felt really comfortable and most importantly powerful on the bike in the new position. So I must say a huge thank you to you Richard I ended up having a great first ironman, rode strong, felt good on the bike and was then able to run off the bike. I also achieved my goal of winning my age group and gaining that Kona slot so thanks again for the help 🙂 will be paying you a visit before Kona!!
Richard was great. The studio is very well laid out and he made me feel at ease straight away. He took great care over the fit and I was very happy. I have had a Retul bike fit before and this was so much better. The explanation of the various angles and their implications was so much easier to understand with real life examples of how changes would affect me. Excellent service.
I was recommended to Richard at Freespeed by a colleague in my triathlon club saying that he was the best around. Having been to a couple of other companies for bike fits in the last 12 months I was curious as to how this one would differ. Straight away I was impressed with Richard’s knowledge, he explained everything in detail and in a way that a novice like myself could understand. He also gives tips and information on other aspects of cycling, for example clothing etc. Definitely would recommend Freespeed!
Suffice to say it’s been one of the best investment decisions I’ve made over the years! In the four hours I spent with Richard, we made some adjustments to my position, allowing me to get more aero but at the same time significantly increasing ride comfort. I can’t recommend Richard enough, he has a genuine passion for the sport, a deep knowledge that really shows through, and he’s an allround decent chap. Go pay him a visit!
Richard came highly recommended and now I can see why. I’ve been dithering about buying a TT bike for a while now but was really worried about making a mistake and buying an ill fitting bike; the glory of being vertically challenged!! Richard made the whole process comfortable from the word go and took time explaining the measurements and readings in layman’s terms. By providing me with a list of suitable bikes to buy he has taken the pain away from the process and I’m now looking forward to purchasing a TT bike that I know will work for me.
