OUR CLAYMORE BICYCLE FIT PROCESS
At Claymore Bicycle Fitting we aim to provide the best bicycle fitting service in Scotland. Our approach and bike fit process ensures the outcome we achieve meets your needs and goals.
After introducing ourselves we have a chat to get to know about you, your cycling goals and what you want the Claymore Bicycle Fitting to achieve.
We set up the bike fitting equipment in the room(s) set aside by you for the session.
We take detailed measurements of your current bicycle set up which involves your assistance! During the documentation your bicycle can reveal little gems of information of how you sit and ride on your bicycle.
The principle of our Claymore Bike Fit is to fit your bicycle to you. We can only do this by learning about you, your capabilities and limitations.
We therefore undertake detailed analysis of your feet and cleats:
We pay a lot of attention on this area as the correct shoe to pedal interface is fundamental to improving function and symmetry on the bicycle.
These assessments enable us to establish your functionality and identify any asymmetries.
As our Cycle Fit Analyst is a qualified Sports Massage Therapist and Biomechanics Trainer we can also provide appropriate advice to help improve function and symmetry.
On Bike Direct Observation
Using direct observation we analyse your current riding position to identify any functional challenges and asymmetries (on bike compensatory behaviour) it may have created.
We look at your current foot placement on the pedals, pedalling technique, lower extremity kinematics and many other aspects of your position.
Interventions are the positional changes we make to your cleats and the contact points on the bicycle to best accommodate your functionality and improve on bike function and symmetry: This is the bike fit.
Where appropriate we make adjustments to:
Adjustments are completed once we are both satisfied with a given position.
Detailed measurements are taken of your new riding position.
After you cycle fit we send you a report. This reports highlights key findings, interventions made, why they were made and post cycle fit recommendations.
We follow up all our bicycles fit to check you have adapted to the the new riding position and you are satisfied with the result. We expect 100% satisfaction with the results of our Claymore Bicycle Fit and, if this hasn't been achieved, we will continue to work with you until we achieve an outcome that meets your expectations. This is our commitment to you as we will not be satisfied with your bicycle fit till you are satisfied.
In return, since our approach is a collaborative process, we expect you to be fully committed to the process. This means implementing any post bike fit recommendation we make and allowing your body time to adapt to the new riding position. Should you have any concerns about the new position you should feed this back to us first and not make any changes unless instructed by us.
With a Claymore Bike Fit you can book in confidence knowing you are going to get properly fitted as our Cycle Fit Analyst is one of Scotland's highest qualified bike fitters having been initially schooled at the Serotta International Cycling Institute (SICI) to an advanced level. He has also continuously developed his skills leaning new fitting techniques and is a qualified sports massage therapist and Biomechanics Trainer.
"If positional changes are not recorded and given to your client then the bicycle fitting has not been done"
