TESTIMONIALS

“I should probably mention here how happy I was with the road bike fit Justin did for me a few weeks ago: after a number of people questioning my sanity to ride from Brisbane to Townsville in under a week I listened to *some* of their advice and spent some of my hard-earnt $$ on a proper fit. 6 days of 200+km days later, I believe it was worth every cent, as the only inevitable discomfort- chafing- was nowhere near as bad as I had anticipated. Even on short leisurely rides I now feel the difference, let alone on long hard slogs where it all adds up to an injury free, much more enjoyable and efficient experience. Can and will recommend!”

“Justin and the team at Bikeline was a great help for me.  After buying my first bike in twenty five years, and realising that the “fit” 25 years ago was a fluke, he sorted everything from neck pain to the dodgy knee, and gave me a really solid base to “work ” from. … Less painless than a knee operation and cheaper than a series of Physio appointments…The rest is up to me.   Thanks Justin. ”

“‘Over winter I had been off the bike for a few months due to a busy work schedule, and with summer riding being a little more pleasant and my work schedule a bit more accomodating, I had been getting back on the bike, but something didn’t feel “right” – too much soreness after a ride in the legs and a bit of saddle soreness, occassional knee pain, and a couple regular riding partners had commented how I appeared to be “bouncing” in the saddle.

Being my birthday, I thought I would treat myself with something, but rather than it being new wheels – which the marketing people tell us would add 5kmh to our leisurely speed 😉 I was a bit curious to try the Specialized Body Geometry fit that is a part of the “new” Bikeline offering. I had a chat with Justin and booked the “fitting” – which to my surprise was scheduled to take 3 hours – (I was a bit amazed – what the hell could take that long?)

The fitting was started by a series of quite in depth questions – my riding style and goals, years on the bike, any current discomfort I was experiencing, any serious (or not so serious) injuries or physical limitations that might impact or need to be accommodated? We then measured sit bone width to make sure that saddle I have was the right “fit” for my ample rear end and looked at the my static posture from side and front on and also my natural tendency to how my legs “tend”.  We looked at flexibility in my legs and also my shoulders. There were numerous other questions and tests over the time, and I was on and off the bike quite a few times as adjustments were made, each time Justin paid a lot of attention to the changes and measured and recorded angles.  After about 4 hours (yes thats right – it takes a while) Justin had determined my saddle height was far too high, my stem marginally too long, my orthotics (which I wear for fallen arches) could be replaced with the Specialised foot beds inside my existing Northwave shoes and the Speedplay cleats were to be “shimmed” ( a small wedge under the cleat to change foot inclination) and the float adjusted. All the changes didn’t feel bad, but there were a lot of them and it felt “different”.

After a few days and 3 hour long plus rides since the “fit” the changes feel quite natural. The end result was my feet
don’t get “hot spots” in them, my legs feel more engaged with my pedalling and when I stand in a hill, I feel much more balanced. I feel more comfortable on the bike. When I get off the bike, I don’t feel as beat “up”.

My feeling is that the fit “session” was the best $300* I could possibly spend (and about $1000 less than those nice fast wheels I’d admired that promised to make me faster) – my bike now feels like “my” bike. If you want to feel comfortable and improve your enjoyment on the bike – it mightn’t mean a new Specialised bike purchase is necessary (but we all secretly covet a new bike – and the fit won’t stop a purchase), but a Specialised BG fit might really help (the fit could also help “convince” the minister for finance that a new bike purchase is “necessary” – I can imagine the excuse, well honey my current bike is such a baaad fit, I just need a new bike …. but thats a story for another day).”
