TESTIMONIALS

Ronan McLaughlin, An Post - Sean Kelly Pro Team

I had my fitting in July before I returned to racing for the second part of my season and my new position feels much better. During my fit session we discovered that my saddle height was too low, we corrected this and from then on I have noticed myself feeling a lot more powerful and efficient. During races since my session I have noticed improvements in my performance and handling as a direct result of the new position.

Having been fitted by Chris using RETUL my bike feels more comfortable, stable and I can now put the power down on the pedals more efficiently and smoothly, a very professional and friendly service that I would recommend to every cyclist.

Getting fitted by Inspired Cycling using the Retul system was the greatest single factor in my bike improvement this season. This, without doubt helped me win the world triathlon championships in September. Thanks Chris!

David McCann - RTS Racing

"I can thoroughly recommend Chris's bike fit to anyone wishing to improve their performance or address problems with their bike position. Even after years of cycling, The retul fit provided me with new information on how I was pedalling that simply would not have been possible to get any other way thus helping me to get to the bottom of my ongoing back pain and imbalances. "

Bryan Keane – Irish Elite Triathlete

I had the pleasure of getting my position fitted by Chris McCann at Inspired Cycling, where we spent a few hours running through all things bike-position to make sure everything was in the right place.

The detail Chris went into was amazing – everything is measured, checked and put into the computer using a set of eight or so sensors on your body that are picked up and tracked by lasers. These lasers ‘talk’ to each other and track your position. All the angles of your body are measured, distances equated, things like your knee angle flexion and your hip-foot lateral offset etc.

Over the years I have got to know my body on the bike quite well, so there weren’t many huge changes that Chris made to my position. He maximized it, giving me little extra bits here and there. A different set of handlebars and the lowering of my saddle by a few millimetres were the biggest changes that were made.

I took it out for its first race in the lashing rain and wind last Sunday on the back roads of County Meath. Training is one thing but racing is when you really get to see how it handles. You also get to see how your body reacts after the race too, in terms of stiffness and soreness. If you don’t have the right position set up on your bike you will know all about it – and this can always be a problem switching to a new bike. Getting your bike set up right is really important; thankfully I had my position dialled just right. After 120km in the rain, cold and wind, the body felt fine the next day.

"Since getting a bike fit done with Chris at Inspired cycling in the early part of this season I have noticed big improvements in my efficiency and power output in both road races and time trials.  Chris lowered my time trial seat post a huge 8mm and also made me more compact and aero by shortening my stem and moving my aero pads in to line up with my knees.  He spent time explaining what he was doing and really showed great attention to detail and that has made all the difference to my race performances.  The main difference for me is peace of mind since Chris has taken the guess work out of me estimating my optimal position based on various guides and theories.  The lazer technology he employs gives an unambiguous visual trace which he can illustrate to you.  With a modest 3mm adjustment to one of my shoe cleats Chris brought a thick knee trace line down to a thin one which translates to the direct and efficient transfer of power that I was looking for.  No longer is power being wasted with inefficient technique and this has led to high gains in performance.  I would highly recommend Inspired cycling to any rider whether they be a road racer, tester or leisure enthusiast since Chris can save you the time, energy and expense of researching your own bike fit and all the associated problems that may go with getting it wrong!  I wish I had heard of Inspired cycling years ago as it has proven to be my best investment yet in the pursuit of high performance and efficiency on the bike."

Kyle Houston - Phoenix CC

"When I went to Chris I felt my bike set up was fairly good but still struggled with some injuries and my bike not being comfortable to ride. Chris took the time to discuss all the possible causes and to adjust my bike so that it was millimetre perfect, now my bike handles like it was on rails. I'm a lot more efficient and I'm sure in the long run it will pay big dividends in injury prevention. I will be recommending Chris to any of my friends needing to get their bikes sorted.""When I went to Chris I felt my bike set up was fairly good but still struggled with some injuries and my bike not being comfortable to ride.

Anne Paul - International Triathlete/Duathlete

After years of guesswork and more recently hip injury problems I went to Chris for a professional bike fit using the Retul system. He made a lot of changes and although it felt strange at the start, the set-up is now very comfortable and I know I am in the best position for efficiency and power output. Chris is also very knowledgeable on mechanical problems and takes no short cuts when providing the service and giving advice.

Judith Lowry - Irish Duathlon Champion

"It wasn’t until I got a bike fit from Chris that I felt I could become competitive in the bike section of my races. I instantly saw the results from my new position, so much so that about a month later I asked Chris to build and fit my beloved Teschner TT bike.  With Chris’s expertise I have seen massive improvements in my cycling performance and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone in the world of duathlon/triathlon who wants the same."

Bryan McCrystal - Irish Elite Triathlete

"I have worked with Chris in the early part of 2012 and there is no doubt that our work together and tweaking of my position gained me free speed. Position is everything in triathlon. Not necessarily is the fastest position best, we have to run after. Chris acknowledged this and found a position suited to me. I have full confidence in my bike position now and it has given me closure on what is best for me"
