Bike Science Derby - Retul Bike Fit

We’re pleased to announce the opening of our second Retul equipped fitting studio. Bike Science Derby opens for business on Monday the 23rd of August, with bookings for each level of bike fit being taken online NOW. Derby fitter Andy Brooke gained the highly coveted Retul University bike fit certification in July 2010, is a Cytech Level 2 qualified mechanic and British Cycling Level 2 Coach as well as a keen triathlete, road and track cyclist. Our Derby location becomes the only Retul equipped bike fit studio in the East Midlands.

The Retul system uses infra red 3D motion capture while the rider is in motion and offers bike fitters the most accurate information on which to base their fitting decisions. No other system provides real time, dynamic measurements with such reliable, repeatable accuracy. Retul is chosen by pro cycling team Radio Shack and pro triathlon team K-Swiss Trek.

Testimonials – What our Clients are saying!

Monday, August 16th, 2010

It’s great to hear back from bike fit clients who’ve gone on to have successful results and achieve their aims throughout the season. Here are just a few of the emails we’ve received over the past weeks…

“You did a level 3 fit for me a month or so back & completely changed the setup of both bikes (Cannondale Slice & Cervelo Soloist). I took the measurements off the Cannondale & used them to rebuild my P3C which was what I used at the UK Double Iron last weekend. It worked a treat, no knee or back problems on the bike and fresh enough at the end to run the double marathon in 9:43, the second half was a PB for an Ironman marathon! Final result was third in 28:02:32 :)- Dave H Double Ironman 3rd Position

“The money spent on the bike fit was probably the best I’ve ever spent. Since riding my new bike I’ve used muscles I didn’t know I had and it has had a massive effect on my running as well. Hamstring problems that have plagued me for more than a year and a half and cost me a fortune in physio have almost disappeared overnight.”Rachel, Ironman Triathlete

“Just wanted to say thank you for the bike fitting and the help and advice before my Ironman.  Completed Ironman Lake Placid two weeks ago 30 minutes ahead of my target time.  Bike felt incredibly comfortable, something which I would have never said prior to the bike fitting. Thanks again for your help.  Will definitely recommend Bike Science to anyone buying a new bike.”Ruaraidh, Ironman Triathlete
