2020 has turned into a very challenging year for us all with the emergence of the Coronavirus (Covid-19)

With our self isolation protocols, Social Distancing, and other quarantine measures in place has made our usual way of life almost imposible.

 

Im sure if you have an indoor trainer then you will be cycling more than ever, with more indoor cycling comes more discomforts and niggles. We understand that coming in for a bike fit may not be an option if you are at home with kids or stuck in self isolation, this is where our Online Bike Fit Service will come in very handy.

 

Notice we didn’t say “New Online Bike Fit Service” this is because we have doing doing this service for clients around the world for over 5 years now.

Cost – $150 inc GST

Duration – 1hr – 1.5hrs

 

How it works

 

Initial pre fit interview form sent to you at time of booking, This is filled out by you before we start.

 

We will then have a 15 minute introduction catch up via video call with coffee of course!! we are happy to use the following methods for this:

 

  • Skype
  • WhatsApp
  • Messenger
  • Google Video Chat

 

Once we have been introduced and had a chat we will then have you do a few basic measurements that we will need to help us with the fit, these templates and instructions will be available on the resources page that was emailed to you at the time of booking. 

Video Analysis

 

With your bike set up on the trainer as per instruction we will have you film your position side on for 10-20 seconds, you can then share this clip with us and we will analyze the position using our video software (The same software we use during our in person bike fits) and then recommend some adjustments and improvements.

 

 

Please Note: 

 

You do not need to be a mechanic to make these recommended adjustments yourself but some basic knowledge such as adjusting the saddle height and use of alan keys is a must, if this is something you have never done before, ensure someone is with you that can help you make these adjustments. 

You will need:

  • Computer or Laptop with Camera and Smartphone with Camera
  • Video App installed such as Zoom, Messenger, Skype, WhatsApp etc
  • Indoor Trainer
  • Some basic Tools such as allen keys
  • Basic mechanical knowledge, how to adjust seat height, handlebars and stem etc.

 

Video Analysis #2

 

Once the recommended adjustments have been made we will then repeat the 10-20 second video analysis and then analyze our results. The above steps will be repeated until we have our optimum position dialled in.

 

Changing Parts such as bars/stems/seatposts

 

The majority of fits will require us to change some of the components on a bike, we will recommend this if we can’t find our optimum position during the fit.

 

How can we get these parts ordered and fitted?

 

We will work out exactly what parts we need including the correct sizes and we can order these for you nice and easy. If you are happy and confident with fitting the parts or know somebody who is, then we can send these to your address and you can have the parts fitted yourself. 

 

Alternatively we do offer a pickup and drop off service in the Auckland area so we can collect your bike and then fit the parts for you and then drop the bike back to you. (This will be available when we are back down to Alert level 3)

 

Final Analysis and report

 

Once the parts have been fitted the bike will be ready for the final analysis. We will repeat the above 10-20 second video analysis to ensure our position is 100% and then when we are ready we will take a few final measurements and then email you your full bike fit report.

 

A bike CAD is also available for an extra $50, you can chose this as an option when you book.
