Proper fitting is crucial to cycle performance and comfort. Click below to find out more about our bike fit and shoe & cleat fit services.

As a Trek Fit certified dealer, we can help you get the most enjoyment from riding your bike by giving you the best fit available. 

Pro racer or beginner, no-one should be uncomfortable on their bike. A detailed fit session will make you more comfortable, powerful, efficient and have you riding for longer.

We want to make the bike fit the rider, not the rider fit the bike. Our fit service takes into consideration variables of anatomy, flexibility, range of motion and riding style.

With all new bikes purchased from Bike Chain Ricci there is a bike set up and sizing included. This is not a full bike fit. If you would like a full bike fit, this is avaialble at a reduced price of £100. 

We also offer full bike fits including cleat and foot analysis for customers who have purchased bikes elsewhere, this is charged at £200.

Bike fits take approximately 2-3 hours.

The Process

The fit process will take between 1 - 1.5 hours and involves:

  • Customer Interview
  • Foot measurement
  • Cleat alignment
  • Shoe adjustment
  • Review of fit

The Cost

At Bike Chain we offer a shoe and cleat fitting service cost of £35. A shoe/cleat bike fit can make a real difference to your performance from beginner to pro. It can help alleviate any aches and pains that you may get whilst riding.

To enquire about availability and to book a slot please call or email, enquiries@bikechainricci.co.uk we'll have you flying along in no time!
