In so many articles online, the importance of a bike fit is mentioned over and over again as one of the first things you do before you start hunting around for that new beauty.
At Forward Chiropractic, we recognise that no two bodies are the same, and as health care providers, we will always put your health, rather than a quick sale first.
We provide a professional one-on-one fitting experience to make your cycling more enjoyable, effective and work with your body not against it as we believe that you’ll ride more often and longer if you feel comfortable on your bike.
While an in-store bike shop fit is a great starting point, for us it’s more than just lifting the saddle up and adjusting your position.
Forward Chiropractic takes in a holistic view of your needs as an individual as the position and requirement of a gravel grinder versus someone in the hunt for a time trial title are very different.
Here’s why our bike fit is different.
It starts off the bike.
As certified chiropractors, with a strong background in cycling and cycle coaching, we understand how the human body functions and have a know how to optimise your set up on the bike.
We’ll work with you to assess your needs with the best health outcomes in mind before we start measuring you up.
We cover areas such as performance goals, preferred positions and take into account injuries or niggles you might have. We work with your body to find the best bike position, rather than shaping your body around a bike.
Not all bike fits are created equal
Using our purpose built bike fitting jig and a one to one setting, we carefully work with you to help optimise your position on the bike whilst looking at three key areas.
After your fit
Once we’ve optimised your position, and you’ve adjusted to the new set up, we check in with you after a fortnight and run through your new position with you, making adjustments as needed.
We believe that a bike fit should evolve with the rider as their fitness, flexibility and body shape changes over the years so we suggest a proper bike fit to be done every XX of years or whenever a new bike comes into your life.
