Our Bike Fit Studio

David and the Gear Change team have employed the world’s best technology. Our advanced fit system allows you to achieve a seamless blend of man and machine.

We use cutting edge high-speed motion cameras that capture each pedal and comprehensive biomechanics for detailed analysis. Our 100% Dynamic Fit allows us to try hundreds of positions quickly without getting off the bike. And, our Gebiomized saddle pressure pad lets us test the pressure on the saddles to find a comfortable cushion for your ride.


The Gear Change Process:

1. Interview and assessment

First, David will sit down with you to fully understand your goals and needs as a cyclist. Before you get on the bike, he will assess your range of motion and flexibility too. Often it’s not what you want, but what you need, and David is the man for this job.

2. Saddle optimisation

Then we do saddle selection, which is fine-tuned through a series of incremental adjustments to create your ideal biomechanical alignment.

3. On-bike optimisation

This is where your fit takes its final form, with proper stem height and reach with handlebar shape and width to optimise your posture and power. All these small adjustments get your bike fitting seamlessly, allowing you to attack the climbs.

4. Shoe setup

It’s easy to overlook cleat set-up, but get it wrong and the mistake will travel all the way up to the knee and the hip. Ideal cleat set-up will vary between individuals and our team will get you positioned correctly in no time.
