Chris provides a fantastic service, the perfect way to get the most effective position on the bike. For a cyclist, it is important to be comfortable; to get that powerful position that is also exactly tailored to you, ensuring every muscle is working evenly which will prevent injury and muscle imbalances that result in injury. Fundamentally, I was impressed with how I could just utilise the position immediately as it felt so natural. I feel comfortable and really in control on the bike too! I learned more each time I returned to Chris for my pre-season tune up, it is a great day out and so informative. I'm looking forward to my next tune up!
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.
Chris was incredibly helpful in sorting out my position to get the most power whilst keeping a position which is aerodynamically efficient!!! Thank so much to all your help all the best.
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 road racing, time trialling and triathlon. Every rider is different and requires individual optimisation. 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.
I visited Chris at inspired cycling last year to test out new saddles and get a bike fit. After suffering a back injury i wanted to get a professional fit and be on the best saddle for me. Chris was able to use the Retul system to look at my back position and angles so that i could benefit from the best aero position without compromising comfort. He paired this with information from the GebioMized force and pressure system which looked at my position in the saddle to find the best saddle for me.
Apart from all the scientific stuff, Chris has a good eye, and knows a lot about bikes and cycling. He might even chat about it and make you a coffee!
Inspired Cycling always offers friendly, helpful advice. Chris goes out of his way to help each client achieve their maximal position on the bike. This was evident when he spent a number of appointments helping me to accommodate a recent knee operation, which is now no longer an issue when riding and this is, in part, down to Chris's work with me adjusting my position and protecting against aggressive movement in my foot. If you are seeking a more aggressive racing position or perhaps a bit more comfort on the bike, I'd recommend you visit Chris at Inspired Cycling!
"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."
"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."
Needed a bike fit and Chris and Conor where recommended. On first arriving the guys just put you to ease straight away and no rushing the session. To be honest the knowledge both guys have for bike and body is just unbelievable, absolutely brilliant setup and and a total pleasure to deal with, will definitely be back. Could not recommend them highly enough.
Top marks to Chris and Conor. Carried out the bike fit in a friendly but professional manner. They were enthusiastic and clearly knowledgeable. As a result I feel a lot more efficient and comfortable when cycling, getting a lot more out of it.
Really impressed with this service. Great set up. Chris and Conor were welcoming and friendly and have a wealth of bike knowledge. Every aspect was looked into. When I took my bike out for a test spin the day after it literally felt like I was pedalling air I thought I had a tail wind it was unbelievable the difference. I will be back with my other road bikes and would recommend Chris for a bike fit.
Had a bike fit with Chris, very professional service and an absolute gentleman. After hearing several excellent reports from friends of mine I decided to book, so glad I did. Wish I had of done this a long time ago. Would highly recommend. This guy knows what he is talking about and even though I'm only a leisure cyclist he put the same time and effort into making me more comfortable and efficient on the bike as he would with anyone else. Very happy with the service I received.
Big thanks to the guys at Inspired cycling. I got myself a bike fit with these men on Friday afternoon. An absolute first class service coming with a wealth of experience and knowledge. Fantastic setup with loads of helpful tips. Really enjoyed the crack but I was there looking to find a cure to a problem I have had with my knee pain for the past year. Chris didn’t take long to drill into and realize what was going on before setting to work to make necessary adjustments. Not the end of my story but definitely seems the first step to the road to pain free cycling. Thanks Chris & Conor.
I've been to see Chris for a road bike and TT bike fit now. Both times he demonstrated his professionalism and attention to detail to achieve the perfect bike fit. I also appreciate the flexibility when booking an appointment with Chris. Id reccomend anybody to visit inspired Cycling to up their cycling game to the next level!
Thank you so much Chris &. Conor.I have been with Chris many times since he built a bike for me since a surgeon told me I never ride bike again. With his knowledge and expertise in bike fitting, we have finally found a fit that works for me. I not race in 20 years and today they reset my bike to new position.Can’t thank these Guys enough, its great to be able to cycle again without issue. If you have any issues get straight to Chris, total professional. Really enjoyed the crack in shop way them both.
On Wednesday I had a bike fit for a new TT I purchased over the summer. havening tweaked and adjusted it to what I thought was comfortable for me I wanted a professional opinion as I am aiming for an Ironman in October 2021. A professional opinion is what I got. the attention to detail and time spent on me and my bike fit far exceeded my expectations and blew the experience of a bike fit at a large chain for another bike a few years ago out of the water. Excellent anatomical knowledge and extremely scientific equipment to test and re test every adjustment they made to my set up; I couldn't believe the difference in comfort. Every step was explained and justified and for me was excellent value. I've seen an improvement in power output and ease of maintaining a higher cadence, (even though I didn't think I had a problem prior to the fit) as well as significantly less shoulder discomfort. Couldn't recommend the guys highly enough.
Went for a bike fit for a new bike last week, Chris and Conor were very friendly while extremely professional at the same time, it is really impressive to watch them manipulate your body image on screen via tabs and cables into a proper cycling posture by altering pedal, shoes, handlebars, seat to name but a few, the results have been incredible, I have since had a couple of sessions on the trainer and a 40 mile run on the road at the weekend, the difference is like day and night, lots more comfortable and can push more power through the pedals with the new position, this is something all cyclists should experience whether beginners, improvers or experienced, it had certainly made my cycling more enjoyable and has improved my performances, looking forward to progressing further. Thanks Chris & Conor.
