Benefits of a professional bike fit
Optimising the rider’s position on the bicycle to maximise power, efficiency and aerodynamics while reducing stress and strains on the body and overuse injuries.
What to Expect
A professional bike fit is usually two to three hour session that includes:
Tools and technology are used during a bike fit, but the quality of the fit depends more on the training and skill level of the fitter more than the technology used.
Every rider has has different needs so no two riders have the same position.
Your Personal Fit Coordinates

This is measured from the centre of the bottom bracket to the top of the saddle (measured at the mid point of the saddle, halfway between the tip and the tail).Saddle Fore/Aft:
This is the horizontal distance from the nose of the saddle to the centre bottom bracket.
For road bikes the saddle nose will typically be behind the bottom bracket.
For the same rider, the saddle on a tri/TT bike will be further forward than a road bike with the saddle nose close to the bottom bracket, maybe even in front of the bottom bracket.
(Note: for a UCI legal TT position, your saddle must be a minimum of 50mm behind the bottom bracket).
You should also note your saddle model, handlebar type (reach & drop), components (Shimano/Campy/SRAM), crank length, pedal make and even shoes worn for the fit as they are all taken into account to get to your optimal position.
