i went for a advanced fit with Andy a few weeks ago and he made some changes to my bike which has made a massive difference to my comfort while riding as well as new shoes for my wide feet and iv broken my distance records and feel better on the bike than ever before. money well spent
Can’t fault. I know how important a bike fit is and Andy is the best around
Great service from a great chap! Had a bike fit on Saturday and I can’t believe the difference it made on my long Sunday ride. Cannot recommend this service highly enough, if you’re on your bike a lot you need a fit, and you couldn’t find a better man to do it
Really helped me with my set up and made it suit the injury I had sustained, also referred me to a cracking osteopath, cant thank them enough, I can ride pain free again!
Had a TT Bike fit with Dan. What a difference, pain free for the first time in years. Looking forward to the follow up to set up new shoes and fine tune before my big race in October.
Had a bike fit with Andy a few weeks ago. A few small tweaks and a saddle change have made a huge difference to the feel and comfort of the bike. Can’t recommend highly enough!!!
Andy was very professional and thorough with his assessment and the whole fitting process. The retul system was used and I was told I had an excellent position on my TT bike. All seemed ok until I actually tried to ride the bike at any intensity and I couldn’t whereas I could before the bike fit. For me the fitting process put me in an ‘ideal’ position by the numbers but a position that was very uncomfortable and not working. Once I changed back to my previous position I was much happier on the bike. For me the whole fitting process was a waste of money
I had a revisit with Andy after several years. It was really useful and insightful. I would have no hesitation in seeing Andy again. Highly recommended.
I had the standard bike fit today with Andy and it was great. Andy is so knowledgeable I felt confident discussing bio-mechanical issues with him. He gave good advice and personalised the session completely, always addressing my specific requirements. He gave great advice and tips which will help me stay aware of my gait & address any inefficiencies, not just for cycling but running too. I have learned so much by him explaining the reasons for the adjustments he made.
I really cannot recommend Andy highly enough. I first met Andy a couple of years ago on a recommendation after I had become quite disillusioned searching for a new road bike. From my first meeting and initial fit with Andy, his professionalism and ability to explain everything meant I felt reassured and knew I was buying the right bike for me and have been very happy with the bike and the fit since then. More recently Andy has fitted me for my TT bike. Having never ridden a TT bike before, the position took a little getting used to, but, with Andy’s patient guidance and reassuring advice, it now feels great. I really cannot thank Andy enough for all his help, he really is fabulous!
Had a bike fit with Dan couple of weeks ago, my word what a difference so comfortable on the bike now.
I had a bike fit with Dan last week, and what a difference this has made! Dan made me feel at ease straight away, we talked about the niggles I have on the bike (specifically knees and numb toes) , the type of riding I do and any challenges I have in mind. He talked through all the changes he made and how they would help, including tweaking the position of my cleats. Went for a ride that evening and felt the difference up hills straight away, I felt like I had more power in my legs and the hills seemed easier which is great! Have booked in to have a bike fit on my winter bike already. Would highly recommend Dan, friendly, knowledgeable, very thorough and an all round “top bloke”
Dan at Bike Fit is so helpful and im now comfortable on my bike. With winter coming im going back to have another fit on this bike due to how good the fit on my other bike was
Very happy with the level of service provided will use again
Got my bike fitted by ukbikefit. I could not recommend anyone else more for a professional bike fit. Dan was very hospitable and made sure we got me into the best position for me that will prevent injuries and make me more efficient. He gave me a saddle fit and found me the right saddle, the specialized power expert saddle is the most comfortable I’ve ever tried! Now all I have to do is get my steerer tube cut and I wont have any excuse for summer 2020 on my giant propel. Things are looking up for the race season!
Follow up visit to check previous visit and work on the front end of the bike. The fit picked up a few minor issues, and already after the session the bike feels so much better. Definitely worth the investment, why spend £000s and not get the best out of it. The cheapest investment to go faster in more comfort. Dan was great to spend 2 hours with and enjoyed the experience.
I had been struggling with injury problems for months due to bad bike fit which had been made worse after seeing an incompetent bike fitter. After seeing Dan I rode home feeling instantly much improved and have had no problems since. I am now more comfortable, powerful and aerodynamic than ever before. What more could you want?
physio knowledge and bike knowledge combined, some changes made that I wouldn’t have expected, and these have certainly made a (good) difference. Plus – he liked my bike (a 9 year old Mercian)
Had knee pain on and off for months. Had a fit and physio assessment and I feel like I am now making good progress to pain free riding. Highly recommend. Its great to get a bike fit with physio in one.
Very good service – I was having problems with my saddle and Dan went through a very systematic, date-led process to sort me out. Recommended.
Can’t recommend Dan Smith enough. I had a bike fit at the weekend and the service was brilliant. I wish I had had this when I brought my first road bike 2years ago. Having a physio involved I feel is so important as they understand your body as well as the bike. Thanks Dan .
Had a great experience with Dan – I booked in after ongoing niggles and trying varying things myself. I had had a bike fit a few years back from a trained fitter but I was never convinced by the position. What makes Dan stand is his Physio background, and applying / adapting this to the fit.
I had a bike fit with Dan 2 weeks ago, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience as Dan is such an easy guy to get on with, extremely knowledgeable and insightful looking at every little detail of you and your bike to make sure you leave with full confidence. Every ride I’ve had since the bike fit I’ve felt a lot more comfortable without the pins & needles I used to get in my fingers due to over-stretching and the cramp in my hamstrings, not only this but I’ve been able to get a lot more power which I’m very happy about instead of struggling to keep up with friends.. all I need to do now is improve on my fitness
Hi. I had a recent bike fit with Dan and was so very pleased with the result. Dan really knows his stuff and is very thorough in his approach and takes the time to explain what it is that he is doing. The time just flew by, it was enormous fun and you come away with not only what feels like a new bike but also a most helpful detailed report on all your bike specific measurements. I’m very much looking forward to a follow up meeting in the new year. Thoroughly recommended
Had a bike fit for my Trek Emonda. So impressed, after riding the bike afterwards, couldn’t get over the difference! Loved the bike previously, adore it now! The fit isn’t just about your measurements in relation to the bike but your personal fitness, previous medical issues. A comprehensive, top to toe fitting. So impressed, going back with my gravel bike shortly. Totally recommend Dan.
Recently had a cleat fitting with Dan and have had some great results with a complete removal of the pain I was experiencing before meaning I know really enjoy my cycling again. Dan is very experienced, knowledgeable and a good laugh too!
I had a bike fit just before Christmas 2020 – Dan was very thorough and looked at my biking position using video analysis and from this tweaked my cleat, saddle and handlebar position – I have had a few short ish rides since and so far no neck/shoulder pain which was annoying me beforehand! So very happy with the outcome and will be going back for a review soon as the training ramps up. Dan was very good at explaining why he altered each thing and how it would help comfort on the bike – definitely recommend!
Despite being a cyclist for over 20 years, this was my first bike-fit and becuase of the care and attention to detail by Dan, I’m now a huge advocate for getting a fit, even if you’re already comfortable on the bike. I can’t recommend Dan enough, I felt really well looked after and my type of riding and other physical aspects were absolutely central to his analysis and final recommendations. Very highly recommended.
new to road bike riding and to be honest, thought I had myself set up in an “ok” manner. Dan proved me so very wrong. the little changes and tweaks, plus a new stem and higher saddle, I’m really looking forward to seeing what a difference it makes when I head out this weekend. massive thanks to Dan.
I had my fit with Jack Davis and he was incredibly nice and approachable. We fully discussed my biking goals and current riding as well as other sports I participate in. He explained the whole process to me as we went through the fit and pointed out all the things that were good and things that needed changing to suit my needs. I’ve ridden my bike a few times since and it feels great and looking forward to many miles spent in the saddle. Can’t thank I’m bike fit and Jack enough for the top quality service.
I decided to take both my bikes for a Bike Fit…and I am so so happy that I did. It has made a huge difference to how I feel and I am much more comfortable. I had only just started wearing cleats as well so it was an ideal time to get them set up at the same time. My position on the bike is so different, my knees and thighs work properly now too! Seat is in a much better position…a little more tweaking required there and I am returning soon for that to be done. Dan was so helpful and explained everything so well…that I didn’t feel a complete novice! Am just so grateful for all Dans help as I am now doing longer multi day rides and am doing them with a huge grin!
I had a bike fit with Dan this week and I was impressed with the whole experience. Dan explained everything clearly and made adjustments that I would never have considered. I came away with an increased knowledge and some great advice for my next bike. Thank you
Follow up from my initial bike fit today with Dan. As always great service, very professional and have noticed big improvements in my riding from a performance and comfort view with the adjustments made.
I met Dan yesterday and was very impressed with the whole experience. He has made several adjustments to my set up which I am confident will benefit my riding comfort. I’d definitely recommend his services.
Well worth booking a bike fit, 5 star service, Dan was a very knowledgable guy who has got me sorted on my bike
Dan was a very knowledgeable guy and was able to identify key changes quickly and with great detail. Felt in really good hands and looking forward to reaping the benefits.
I had a bike fit with Adam and he was great and very knowledgeable! He explained every step and what we were trying to achieve with each adjustment. Very easy to talk to, making the experience great! Bike set up feels great now with no pressure to buy additional components
Had a bike fit with Jack a couple of weeks ago. He made me feel extremely comfortable and discuss my training goals and injuries which may impact the set up, ridden my bike a couple of times and have never felt better on the bike. Cannot recommend this service enough!
Delighted with the process and results of a bike fit I had with Dan. Having taken up road cycling 7 months earlier, I had started to plateau in my performance improvement and experience very uncomfortable neck and shoulder pain after rides of longer than an hour. After a superb consultation and some precision adjustments to my bike and position I am no longer experiencing the neck and shoulder pain. I also saw immediate improvements in my power output due to tweaks to my saddle position, cleat float and addition of some insoles. Knocked a whopping 45 seconds off my 10 mile TT personal best on the next outing. I don’t feel like I am fighting the bike anymore. 100% worth the investment. I also learned loads about general principles of cycling biomechanics that I can use in the future. Thanks Dan!
Had a bike fit with Adam and what a difference feels like a new bike would definitely recommend very friendly and knows his stuff money well spent in my eyes
I had a 4hr, two bike fitting appointment with Adam @ Breaston 26/6/2021. Adam was very knowledgable and full of hints and advice. I went on a club run 27/6/21 with my adjusted summer bike and I could feel the difference, no strained hamstrings and no soreness in the neck, also better speeds uphill. Cheers Adam, great job.
Had my bike fit with Dan a few weeks ago. It was fascinating, great to finally ride a bike that fits me (if only I’d done this years ago!). After just a few rides my back and gluteal pain is gone, I feel like I’m no longer stretching and the ride is much more comfortable. I’d highly recommend this service!
Booked a bike fit as a gift for my better half. Excellent service and Adam was highly knowledgeable – we came away having learned a lot and with the data to apply to future bikes as well as the one that was subject to the fit. Would definitely recommend, in fact we’re going back next week to get me one.
I had a fantastic experience recently with Dan@uk bike fit Thorough review leading to multiple changes all explained in a straightforward way and shown on the tv screen. Professional support and great follow up. I strongly recommend this for anyone thinking of buying a bike especially an expensive one! He has fixed issues I’ve had for several years and dispelled a few myths living on YouTube and google.
Awesome experience – I’ve only been riding for about a year and most recently training for a charity ride so wanted to get my bike set-up checked. Dan was brilliant and great to work with. He just knew exactly where to start, what to look for and how to remedy all the different faults in my set-up. His attention to detail was fabulous (he corrected 5 different settings relating to my shoes alone!) and I’m now confident that my riding style will be working with my body and therefore allow me to get more out of my riding (plus lowering the risk of me injuring myself by using my body to compensate for a poor bike set up). The number of small adjustments made based on precise measurements from the dual video set up was brilliant. Highly recommend this to anyone who is a regular cyclist.
Really impressed, a very thorough bike fit. A very interesting morning. Some significant improvements made to my cycling biomechanics. highly recommended
Friendly, no fuss, very clear outcome. Made an enormous difference to me in narrowing down my options to a manageable level. I do not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking to buy a bike.
I had a bike fit with Dan and the service was excellent, exceptional knowledge and extremely thorough, covering every part of the bike and set up you can imagine. Made some quite big changes to both my bike and my shoes which have already had a big impact for me. Highly recommended for cyclists of any level, to either improve performance or to manage those aches and pains!
Fantastic service and great knowledge!
Excellent attention to detail really worth while thanks
great service, really friendly staff! 🙂
Very professional service – An approachable friendly business and one to recommend to my fellow cyclists.
Absolutely unbelievable service ! Adam sure knows his stuff ! More efficient and comfier from ride 1 !!!!
The fit has sorted out the pain in my knees, well worth the fee.
Visited Dan on the basis of just confirming my position was okay on the bike and I was getting some pain in the right leg and the left side of my Lower back, But Dan soon discovered that I had a hip in balance that made my right leg dominant, Dan went on to change my position to make my left leg more engaging and also put a plan in place of stretching exercises for hip correction, One month on from the bike fit, using power meter pedals I’ve gone from a 42/58% leg in balance a 50/50% average, no more constant right leg problems and lower left back pain, just to summarise I can 100% recommend seeing Dan if you have underlining problems or want to bike fit that you know is right for yourself, thank you.
Best place for everything that means bike. Friendliest staff and if you come for an actual bike fit, Dan will sort you out 100%
Excellent fitting of my TT bike done by Adam! Thank you! 100% recommended.
After struggling with pins and needles in my feet and trying different set ups to try fix it I gave up and booked a cleat fit with Dan why I didn’t just do this in the first place i have no idea he went through everything with me and what could cause the problems finally got down to the problem and couldn’t be more than happier finally back to enjoying biking with no pins and needles thank you so much Dan.
I would recommend this service to anyone, whether you have just started riding or a more experienced cyclist. Dan is extremely knowledgable and the comprehensive service he provides is very impressive.
A really thorough and comprehensive bike fit that I’m sure will help with my recurring knee injury. Thanks Dan!
Great friendly service, bike riding has been much better since. Well worth the money.
Wow what a great day with Adam Kenway.. feel very honoured and pleased to have met you and the excellent advice you gave me at the session it was great to speak to someone so knowledgeable and feel like I was talking to a good friend I’ve known for years 🙂 I’ve done a Zwift session for 1hr 30 when I got home and the difference I could feel in the bar position, hoods slight fore/aft adjustments to the saddle, cleat position and saddle height were immediate and I still felt fresh after the ride and the next day.. Many thanks Adam
Dan was great. Really took the time to understand my cycling history, what kind of cycling I do, injury history etc. I had always found long rides on my new bike uncomfortable until after my bike fit – now they are so much better and I feel much more efficient on the bike
I can really recommend Dan at uk bike fit it cured my foot problem gave me more power to do longer rides about 120 miles in 3 rides a week I’m 66 years old also he’s very knowledgeable and gave me some good advice. Still have some left fingers issue but yet have to get my new bars on so hopefully will go some way of resolving this issue.
Great fit! I was getting horrible pains across my shoulders and back. But the fit has pretty much taken all of them away. Riding has become so much easier and fun too. Will highly recommend. Thank you.
Really pleased I invested the money in a bike fit with Adam. He knows his stuff and has helped me achieve a position on that’s inline with my riding goals. I’d highly recommend the service!
Jack tailored his approach to perform a fit that would help me achieve my goals on the bike. He is clearly knowledgeable and explained the reason for the adjustments he made throughout. Definitely recommend!
A combination of first class technology and friendly expertise for an excellent service. Dan’s physio background mean he’s ideally qualified to ensure that the bike fit works for your specific physiology and flexibility.
Very professional and thorough bike fit carried out by a trained and experienced physiotherapist. The adjustments he suggested have made a notable difference to my comfort on longer rides. In particular I no longer develop knee pain or saddle numbness regularly going over the 100km mark. Dan was happy to incorporate my particular style of riding and potential future goals to achieve the right fit. I’d recommend this bike fit for cyclists of any caliber.
Like many, I went down the cycling wormhole during lockdown 2020. I bought myself my first road bike and had knee pain from ride 1. Ride after ride I suffered with agonizing knee pain and even thought I was going to have to sell my new bike at one point… until a friend recommended to book a bike fit and thankfully I found UK Bike Fit. Dan was awesome and using all his gizmo’s and knowledge adjusted and set up my bike & cleats perfectly for me. I went out for a short ride that same afternoon and as if like magic my knee pain had gone – I couldn’t believe it. It’s now a month later and I have done 300+ miles pain free and have retired the nickname “The Knee Destroyer” from my bike ? I 100% recommend UK Bike Fit if you are having any problems or pain on your bike, you won’t regret it. Thank you Dan!!
Had a pre-purchase sizing with Dan at Velo Bavarian. Dan explained the process very clearly. This really helped me home in on the correct bike for me in terms of Stack and Reach. Highly recommended.
I recently had a bike fit with dan at uk bike fit after experiencing some neck pains when doing longer rides that was putting me off the longer rides. Dans service was brilliant and the attention to detail by him was amazing. I am 4 weeks down the line and feeling a lot more comfy on the bike and being able to push more power which I am very happy about! I recommend anyone who is in any discomfort not to put up with it and get booked in, it’s the best thing I’ve had done regarding cycling.
I had a bike fit with Dan whereby he was altering my position on a Giant Propel advanced 1 disc. my cleats were adjusted as was the stem height and length. I am not super flexible so I have some work to do there in order to adjust my body. The bike now rides with alot of comfort and with the stem now 100mm (formally 110mm) I have a strong position with minimal discomfort. I highly recommend a bike fit to anyone as it will put you and your bike in a perfect partnership.
Looking to buy a new bike that is actually the right size for me, I booked an pre-purchase sizing appointment for with Adam Kenway. Adam was very knowledgable and got me all the data needed for me to be able to find a bike that will fit me, even with my super inflexible rock climber’s back. He also answered all questions I had after the fact. Once I find a bike in the current shortage of anything two-wheeled, I’m definitely going to book a full fitting appointment!
After having some aches and pains on my road bike I decided a bike fit was what I needed since the internet was very contradictory. Dan is very professional with years of experience, we spoke of my needs on the bike, my aches and pains and checked my flexibility and pointed out problem areas. Monitored me on my bike and made adjustments accordingly. If you are considering a bike fit get one by Dan you won’t regret it, highly recommended ??
Went to see Dan twice, first to get a better idea of what I should look when buying a new bike, and then post purchase to ensure everything was setup to best meet my needs. New bikes are not cheap but for me this whole process gave a great deal more piece of mind. Dan was v supportive and patient.
Friendly and efficient, Dan made what seemed like a series of minor tweaks that has made my riding position feel significantly more comfortable. Also pointed out a small leg length discrepancy which I would never have spotted and may have contributed to an evolving ankle pain. Hopefully the fix will help this resolve. Highly recommended!
I recently visited Dan for e bike fit, he was patient, thorough and explained the reasons for changes in a way that even I could understand. Well worth a visit 🙂
Had a bike fit with Dan, explained everything that was being checked and didn’t mind me asking loads of questions too! Altered a few things on my bike and I’m getting use to them now and feeling like I’m more in sync with my bike
Thoroughly enjoyable experience in the new Bikefit setup at Velo Bavarian. My second bikefit, this time with my Bianchi Aria ebike. Off out for a long meander around the lanes of Derby to check out the adjustments tomorrow. Felt more comfortable on the bike as Dan made some adjustments at the visit, totally expect future super comfortable rides. Thank you Dan ?
This was my first bike fit so I’ve nothing to compare it with. However, the session with Dan was excellent. Dan explained each part of the process clearly, along with the reasons behind each step, and was more than happy to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend this service.
I was recommended to contact UK Bike Fit by a friend who had been nagging me for years, only when I suffered a series of injuries did I finally give in and bite the bullet – wow what a difference. I’m only 2 rides in and it already feels more comfortable, the surprising difference is how it has affected performance without having to try any harder. I really wish I’d done this years ago. It’s not cheap but it’s a lot cheaper than trying paying physio’s – a penny of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Dan couldn’t have been more thorough or more helpful – I’ve already recommended to a family member.
I had my pre bike purchase and my full bike fit with Dan and can’t recommend him enough! He has the experience, knowledge and professionalism to answer any questions I had when it came to the fitting. Well worth the journey to see him and will be coming back when I get another bike, you won’t be disappointed if you go to him.
Recently had a bike fit with Dan on my Cube Attain road bike. My cleats, stack and saddle height were adjusted, whilst changing the saddle for one with a cut out has (so far) completely eradicated the pressure sores I was experiencing. I was also provided with recommended frame geometry measurements to assist in the purchase of a new bike. Could not recommend a bike fit with Dan enough, whether new to the sport or an experienced cyclist who has debated if it is worth it – it 100% is!
Great bike fit experience with Jack. It was my first bike fit and Jack did a great job to explain it all to me and the adjustments made translated into much improved comfort on my next ride. I’d definitely recommend.
After suffering with groin pain especially after longer rides I decided to get a bike fit. My fit with Jack was relaxed and informative and now after 5 weeks my body has adjusted to it’s new position I’m now doing 50+mile rides pain free.
Friendly efficient service delivered by Jack last week when I bought my Bike in for a Cleat Setup. Found out things I wasn’t aware of about my body and cycling technique. Definitely recommend anybody new to cycling or wanting to step it up a bit to book in for service.
Professional and friendly service. Need time yet to fully road test the tweaks made to improve my ride but so far the signs are looking good. Pleased with the advice given.
I had my bike fit session with Dan who was professional and engaging throughout. Fully explained and demonstrated the process, finding significant deficiencies in my bike set-up. I’d highly recommend. Thanks.
My bike fit experience was great. Dan explained everything clearly and made adjustments I would not have considered. I came away with increased knowledge and some great advice for my next bike. Thanks 🙂
Had a bike fit with Dan on Saturday and everything was well organised from a fit and COVID perspective. Dan is very knowledgeable and explained the process step by step, I have had bike fits in the past where changes have been made without fully explaining the benefits and impacts. The software Dan uses is great and helps you to see how the changes made alter your position on the bike. The software around choosing a suitable new bike was very useful and I will definitely use this information to make an informed choice in the future before any purchases. Some minor adjustments were made to my overall fit and although I haven’t spent many miles testing it out just yet, I already feel more comfortable on the bike, would definitely recommend.
Had my bike fit with Dan, from start to finish it was a really good experience , he set me new cleats up done the adjustments that was needed to my bike and I also required insoles in my shoes , I then tried the bike the day after my bike fit I can honestly say I was amazed by the difference so more comfortable on the bike and the insoles made a massive difference too. very happy ?
Just had a bike fit with Dan at UK Bike fit above Velo Bavarian. Fantastic fitting, very knowledgeable and some great tweaks made. If you’re looking for a new bike or just to get your current one ticking the way it should then I highly recommend!!
I recently had my frst experience of having a bike fit with Jack. Straight off the bat he made me feel at ease. He talked me through everything, giving explanations behind each step of the process and answered all of my questions. I found the whole experience very enjoyable and informative. I can not rate Jack highly enough! Needless to say I got out on my bike the very same day after my fitting and immediately noticed the difference. Its made me very excited for my cycling endeavours to come.
Jack was the guy who carried out my bike fit. I can’t speak highly enough about him and the fit we went through. He tailored my bike to my goals and current style of riding. With spike at length of my history riding as well as my other sport I participate in (rock climbing). The customer service is smashing it out the park. Well worth the time and money. Recommend this to every cyclist I speak with about bike fits.
I had a pre-purchase sizing with Dan before Christmas and service was excellent. Dan explained the relevant points of frame sizing very clearly and provided me with a much better understanding of bike geometry and what specific factors I should be looking at with a new bike purchase. The sizing we performed felt much more comfortable than when riding any of my previous bikes have been and this experience has made me really just how poorly my previous bikes were suited to me. I am looking forward to buying a new bike when things open up and will be back to Dan for another specific bike fit.
Brilliant service, I would highly recommend for anyone who suffers with lower back issues. I had a bio-mechanical assessment and Dan also sent me an exercise routine via a follow up email. Bike fit was also great.
Dan did a great job of ensuring my position was correct for my bike and the type of riding I do. Totally professional and great service. I would recommend him and the team at UK bike fit.
I booked a saddle fit with Adam Kenway at Leisure Lakes in Breaston. The fitting was efficient and thorough and Adam’s expert knowledge came across in an easy-to-understand way. Although I’ve only been out riding a couple of times since the fit the adjustments that were made during the bike fit do seem to have made a difference. Whilst I’m still getting used to the new position I can certainly say that I’m feeling less discomfort and looking forward to putting in some longer rides. I’d recommend Adam without hesitation.
After hurting knees and self diagnosis of sorting positions from internet advice and still not getting any better, I finally took the plunge and dug deep in my pocket and had a professional bike fit at last. Only wish I had done this years ago. By far the best upgrade you can spend your money on is yourself. If at all you might be concerned about the price of a bike fit like I was but in hind sight worth every penny and should have done it sooner. The process was very professional and personal. Great service and also the bikes to ogle at in the shop are second to none. First class
Dan was really good he explained everything along the way, I’ve been out on a ride since the fit and what a difference in the power available just from the alterations made, would definitely recommend having this done.
Sorted all my knew pains and improved my enjoyment on my bike by changing my cycle set up, highly recommend UK bike fit situated above Velo. Thanks Dan for all your help
Excellent levels of service before, during and after the bike fit, from Dan, who is also the owner. Looking forward to more comfortable cycling going forward. Definitely recommend. ?
Had a great bike fit with Dan, great attention to detail , explained everything in plain English during all the different steps of the bike fit. Dan also checks up after a few weeks to see how successful the bike fit as been, after service is excellent. Great all round service.
Very happy with my bike fit! Adam was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. He patiently answered all of my questions and provided invaluable tips. Very thorough review of my riding position and my bike and cleats setup. It definitely feels a lot more comfortable and am looking forward to having longer rides (rather than fearing back ache!)
Had an excellent experience using UK Bike Fit. Had an initial sizing assessment which really helped me identify my next road bike. There is so much difference between bikes out there and Dan’s advice really helped to make my decision. He was also really helpful on email when I’d seen some bikes online to advise on their suitability. The bike fit a few months later has made a big difference too. I was really rather wonky on my bike before Dan did some adjustments and leant me a saddle. Looking forward to going back in a couple of weeks to see the difference all those changes have made.
bike fitter was jack. 2 bike fit plus cleats for new bike shoes and cleat set up for existing shoes. road bike set up including shorter stem, made the bike far more comfortable and saddle height adjusted. great equipment, friendly professional place to visit, very thorough assessment. Did a hybrid for me too. very happy with the service and a bike fit report to keep for my own use. thank you for excellent service will visit again. highly recommend.
I went to see Dan for a professional bike fit at Velo Bavarian, Duffield and it was fantastic. He took time and great care to explain the relevance and process for each stage. I can’t recommend him enough.
I was booked in for bike fits on both of my road bikes. The service and personal touch from Adam was brilliant. Explaining everything he would be doing and why the adjustments would be made. What could have been a very clinical afternoon turned out to be very relaxed, but very professional afternoon, with Adam taking a genuine interest in my cycling and what I was hoping to get out of the bike fit. I cannot recommend Adam and UK Bike Fit highly enough.
Superb bike fit session with Dan at UK Bike Fit on Friday. Thorough assessment off and then on the bike followed by many patient adjustments to the bike. Dan explained every step, making the process easy to understand. Early days but already feeling the benefit of a more appropriate riding position after 80k weekend sportive with less aches and pains than normal. Expensive bikes are all well and good, but highly recommend getting a good bike fit for a few extra quid to get the most out of it. Thank you Dan!
The best upgrade you can buy for your bike! Had my bike fit with Adam last Saturday and it was brilliant, the knowledge and advice given was 10/10. All those little niggles and uncomfort I was having was explained in detail and readjusted right away. Have been on a few test rides since and the comfort level on my bike is 10 times better, I feel faster and have zero pain or uncomfort now. Would 100% recommend!!
Just had my bike fit with Adam. Fantastic service from a lovely guy. Sorted my cleat position, seat height and angle, plus my handlebar position. Opened my eyes to the poor position I was in before. Would recommend to any keen cyclist. Thanks Pau
Adam was brilliant, clearly very knowledgable and knew exactly what was needed in order to get me comfortable on the bike. I would recommend anyone that cycles to have a bike fit and I can highy recommend UK BikeFit for this service. It helps that Adam was friendly and easy to chat to, making me feel very comfortable throughout the appointment.
Having previously had a less than optimum experience with a bike fit I was slightly skeptical about their usefulness, but some knee pain and a big ride coming up meant I went hunting for someone who really knew what they were talking about. Unlike many other bike fitters Dan is a qualified physiotherapist, and the extra understanding of human anatomy really shines through. He took a good cycling and exercise history and went through some off the bike flexibility work before working logically from the shoes up. Every step was explained well and it was clear why each change to my position was made. Added to the expertise, the fitting studio is well equipped and the addition of a screen so I could see the recordings myself really helped with understanding and appreciating the effectiveness of a better fit. Best of all, my knee pain is gone and I’m able to ride all day comfortably and efficiently. I wouldn’t hesitate in getting another fit for my next bike… Because there’s always a next bike.
I had my appointment with Adam and it was a fantastic experience he was so professional and friendly. He explained everything about the process we would go through and I explained the issues I was currently experiencing. At the end of the session everything on the bike had been adjusted including my cleat positions and it felt totally different. All that I need to do is get use to my new position with the added bonus of being able to return for a follow up appointment to see how I’m getting on. I would totally recommend getting a bike fit done at UK Bike fit thanks Adam.
Definitely recommend a bike fit from these guys. I thought my set up was near enough but having spent a couple of hours with Adam it now feels spot on. Everything is very professional with process. the communication before the day is spot on as well. Will definitely go back for a follow up soon. Thanks for your help with my bike 🙂
I had a bike fit with Dan back in June and it was so helpful. We made a lot of changes…not too many though as I was about to do the C2C (first ever long distance ride)…and it made such a difference to my comfort on the bike. I couldn’t believe it…so worth having. Before going I didn’t really understand what would happen but Dan was so professional, explained things well for me, helped me understand why tweaks were needed. I’ve had 500 miles of comfort at long last…no knee ache or back ache…and lots more comfort on my sitting bones. Can highly recommend. So much so I am going back soon for more little adjustments. **Update**. I went back to Dan to have my seat height adjusted…and it has made a world of difference again. Having recently completed the Iron to Iron ride from Okehampton to Ilkeston (335miles!) I never had sore bottom or legs. And I am not used to this sort of day on day riding. So…many thanks Dan for making sure me and the bike were compatible.
Highly recommended professional and friendly service. I was getting a bit fed up with knee pain and other issues on my new gravel bike, but was a bit skeptical about purchasing a pricey bike fit. However after a in-depth analysis by Adam at Breaston, he was able to make a number of changes that have vastly improved by riding comfort and efficiency. So it’s safe to say it was worth the money
After a serious cycling accident and subsequent surgery my body had changed dramatically. I got back on the bike but couldn’t get comfy. I tried all the advice on the net with little success. I saw Dan at UK bike fit and he went through my position from my toes up! From shimming a cleat to custom insoles and a saddle pressure map he dramatically altered my position and advised a different seat. What a revaluation! I don’t think I have ever been so comfortable on my bike. I’m loving my cycling again! Please go and see these guys… They really know their stuff!
Highly recommended. Very thorough, methodical and great communication throughout the process. Having a a bike fit from someone who is also a physio is a real benefit.
Chose to visit UK Bike Fit on the basis that Dan was a qualified physio so the session would not only focus on the position and mechanics of the bike but also the mechanics of the body. I was not disappointed, a great session identifying the issues which were then transferred into the bike fit session. After a couple of rides the difference is noticeable. Would highly recommend UK Bike Fit and Dan.
Worth every penny, my only regret is I didn’t get a full bike fit sooner! Had my fit with Adam, the experience was first class, a real bespoke professional service tailored to me. Adam took the time to explain every process and goes the extra mile to make it relaxed and enjoyable. His knowledge of all things cycling is incredible, even giving me great training advice. Since the fit my knee and back pain has become a thing of the past. My segment times have even improved, while the new more aero position makes rides more comfortable and my performance more consistent.
Could not recommend Dan enough, professional and friendly all the way through the session. Started with a full body assessment and then a good chat about any issues and my riding style and future goals on the bike, I was having some knee issues prior to the fit and Dan got to work finding the possible causes. He talked me through every step and why some things were necessary (such as new moulded insoles to help with my v.high arches) but at no point did I feel like he was applying a ‘one size fits all’ approach and he actually worked out the best position for my not so flexible back! I didn’t really know what to expect from the session but an afternoon that could’ve felt like a doctors appointment became just a chilled chat. I should also mention that Dan’s tweaks have meant that I now no longer suffer from ride ending knee pain after 30km! Cheers!
Had a great bike fit session with Adam this week and was a fantastic experience. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but Adam is very knowledgeable and made the session thoroughly enjoyable. The advice given and adjustments made have already made a huge difference in the comfort of my riding. Would recommend this to anyone who is having issues with niggly pains after riding, or anyone who wants to optimise their riding experience!
WORTH EVERY PENNY & HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ! The attention to detail given by Dan during my recent bike-fit was amazing, from the physical assessment of my feet, stance, leg-length and general flexibility and then applying this to the position on my bike. Saddle lowered, wedges and shims fitted under my cleats, stem shortened, bars changed, hoods moved down … almost everything was altered; but the improvement in riding comfort has been incredible. I feel fully in-tune with my bike now and even clocked up some Segment PRs on my first ride !
Prior to my bike fit with Dan I suffered with knee paint on longer rides and it was putting me off tackling longer rides. I have just returned from a bike packing weekend in the peak district with 250km and 4500m climbing in 3 days completely comfortable and pain free. I completely recommend UK bike fit for a bike fit, especially Dan. Dan reviewed what I want to achieve from my riding and how my body behaves prior to seeing how I interact with my bike, then made adjustments to my existing set up.
Had my first bike fit with dan luckily I brought the right size frame and dan could make some vital adjustments to make it fit perfectly. I would never been able to get right with out his help. I would highly recommend dan especially if you’re looking for a new bike or have any riding issues. The detail he goes into is incredible he definitely knows his stuff
Excellent service. Bought my 2nd road bike and decided on a bike-fit to try and get an optimal riding set-up. Dan was recommended as soon as I began chatting about the idea with folks at Cycle Mickelover, who also said to get the fit early rather than getting too used to the new bike first. Helpful, great knowledge and advice to match. Dan has also provided free follow-up in the next 6-months if needed, which is so reassuring and a written summary of the bike-fit. Recommend.
Thanks Dan for an informative and very useful bike fit. For anyone considering getting one, I couldn’t recommend Dan enough. Starting with the mobility assessment and progressing to the video analysis and tweaking my position, I learned a lot of useful info and left with an improved position on the bike – much more comfortable and powerful!
I’m fairly new to cycling with 2/3 years experience. Set up my position with the help of internet videos. Went to Dan for a bike fit. Starting with my cleats and working up he identified everything I had got wrong and remedied. This resulted in a MUCH comfier position and it feels like I can get the power out easier. The appointment started with a physio assessment. From this Dan found some weakness and gave me exercises to go away with. Was not expecting this! Can feel the difference this has made on the bike with more stability in my knees. Time on the day flew by, really enjoyed the experience. Would recommend to anyone bothering to read a review! Thanks Dan
Brilliant experience from start to finish, nothing is too much trouble for Dan, you can see he loves the sport and ensuring that the customer is considered at all times. I couldn’t fault his methodical and professional approach. The changes he made where logical and he discussed the changes at every stage, taking feedback from me as to how the changes felt on the bike. The saddle pressure map was exactly what I required and I would recommend this to anyone if Dan feels you need it, no hard sell involved either, just good advice. Not experienced any follow up yet, however, if the initial fit is anything to go by I fully expect this to be of the same high standard. Thank you very much Dan
My experience with Dan from UK Bike Fit was fantastic right from the start. He went over everything and more than what I was expecting and no question I had was unanswered. You can tell he knows his stuff about cycling and your body with him also being a physio. Had a couple questions since my fit and he’s emailed back promptly with the answer which is also great customer service on his behalf. Fully recommend.
