DO I NEED A BIKE FIT?

Welcome to Bollington Bike Fit, located at the heart of some the regions finest routes and trails for enjoying time on your bike.

Since 2016, our custom Bike Fit services have been helping cyclists achieve increased performance, improved comfort and pain free cycling at all levels from Elite level & GBCT performance athletes, sportive riders, novice through to lifelong cyclists. Our aim is to ensure you can achieve your goals, minimising risk of long term injury, maximising performance and above all, enjoying the ride.

Below are a few questions about your riding. If you answered yes to just some of those questions then a custom bike fit is for you! The list is not exhaustive, but just analysing one element, will not eliminate the other areas. Just raising or lowering your saddle for example, will not alleviate all your aches, pains or performance issues.

Do you struggle to change gear or brake safely?

Your saddle may be too far back or too high. Your handle bars may be too wide, the stem too long so stretching your reach too far, your shoulders may have reduced mobility in the shoulder joint, requiring adjustment to the reach, as well as mobility & stretching exercises.

Bollington BikeFit Cycling Specialists Cheshire

Do your knees twinge? Are you shifting a lot in the saddle?

Your feet may be positioned too far forward or too far back over the centre of the pedal, causing your knee to over/underextend or flick outwards or inwards during the pedal-stroke. Your saddle tilt may be causing you to put pressure through the knees to compensate the pressure into the saddle.

Bollington BikeFit Cycling Specialists Cheshire

Do you regularly feel pins & needles or numbness in hands/feet?

You may need a new or alternative footbed to support and realign your instep/heel/arch. Your reach to the bars may be too long, or the bars too wide, putting a strain through your neck into your shoulders. Your mobility may be reduced due to lack of regular stretching.

Do you find climbing out of the saddle difficult or painful?

Your overall riding position is causing too much strain throughout the body, with pressure being put through your spine, onto your shoulders and into your hands. Fatigue will also set in earlier and you may experience cramping.

Why use us

JAMES ROBERTS

ABOUT BBF

Building on the bike fitting services already established through James’ coaching company JRC Ltd, Bollington Bike Fit was born when JRC moved to Bollington in early 2020 to be at the heart of the North West’s cycling community. With a growing demand already in the NW for James’ knowledge, experience, expertise and care for the client, it seemed the right time to launch the Bike Fit Company as a stand alone business.

SERVICES

Bike fit services are offered to fit client’s needs and goals, there is no one size fits all. From returning to cycling after a break, to daily commuting, increasing training hours in the saddle or following an injury, James works with you to ensure that your comfort, health and performance on the bike is the only focus.

Currently based in Bollington, Macclesfield, BBF also offers home visits within certain areas.

EXPERTISE

James started to develop his bike fitting experience through working with his coached clients, identifying areas causing health or performance problems, and working on transforming the rider’s relationship with the bike.

Invited to work alongside GBCT Apprentice riders in 2016 and 17, James supported riders 1-1 both on track and road, and delivered workshops on basic bike fitting awareness – essential with growing teenagers, where position can change as often as every 3 months.

James is a fully certified BikeFit TM Level 2 fitter.

Bollington Bike Fit Testimonials

What clients say

TESTIMONIALS

Heather Catlow

"I got a brilliant service from James at Bollington Bike Fit, he really went out of his way for me not only to source a bike but to make sure it was the correct size for me. I would highly recommend"

Melanie Robinson

"An extremely thorough assessment took place from back to the front of the bike then down to the cleats and all measurements professionally and accurately measured and made into a pdf for us to take away. A very affordable option was completed and even after one ride my daughter is already more comfortable and confident to explore the local Cheshire lanes. Great set up, lovely people and affordable options. There knowledge of anything bike is second to none. Will be booking myself in next."

Arcadia Business

After a few years out of the saddle I decided to find a bike fitter who could help me ride comfortably and safely. Step into the frame Bollington Bike Fit.
One week on, well what a joy it is to be on the back on the bike, I feel in greater control, pain free and already increasing my cadence with each ride. I have adopted a more relaxed riding position and my shoulders and neck are really appreciative.
An absolute for anyone who wants to enjoy their cycling and remain pain/injury free.

Your bike fit. How do you measure and improve performance? Whether it’s being able to keep up with your best mate for friendly rivalry or find those marginal gains in a tt, measuring power before and after the bike fit gives solid evidence and taking it out on the road ensures you can feel the difference straight away.

Yesterday’s client came to us suffering knee pain & pins and needles after just an hour of riding, and was not comfortable at all. Spending time on the Wattbike and analysing pedalling efficiency, with guidance on improved pedalling techniques is just one part of the process to make you a more efficient rider.

The bike fit will then take you further, to ensure comfort and pain free riding, which we can then take out onto the road to test.

Our performance Bike Fit takes around 4 hours, with prices from £195.

Planning for a trip to Belgium needs some inspiration from one of our favourite climbs (and beers) @kwaremont @ridley_bikes @jrc_shutt_ridley @james_roberts_coaching ...

Whether a first timer, returning to cycling, seasoned rider or buying a new bike, think about your recent riding experience and ask yourself if you rode comfortably for the whole ride? Did you suffer any niggles? Could you climb strongly? Are you able to reach the brakes safely and change gear?

Every ride should be free from niggles or pain, you should feel comfortable, strong, and most importantly, in control.

We would love to hear from you if you have questions regarding your riding experiences and if you need any advice or guidance to improve your ride, and watch out for our new website and booking calendar coming soon!!

Custom Bike Fits available either at our studio or at your home, all Covid precautions are in place for your and our safety. www.bollingtonbikefit.co.uk
