Bike fitting session with ex professional rider Fred Salmon.*

Ex professional Fred Salmon (Peugeot, 3 Peaks winner and more) offers advice and cutting edge bike fitting using the latest Retül technology to help take your riding to the next level.
With vast experience at the highest levels of the cycling, Fred is ideally equiped to discuss any areas of concern or improvement you may require.
Fred will then saddle you up and attach sensors to you before your data gathering ride on the special Retül rotating platform. 
Once the system has gathered your data from both sides of your riding position, Fred will then go through the data with you and recommend changes to your riding position.
By the end of the session, you'll be perfectly fitted to your bike and have a raft of advice from an ex pro to take away with you!*
We all know every rider is different on many different levels, especially the finer details of body movement whilst riding.
It’s essential for a rider to get the best fit possible from their bike to ensure that they not only get the best performance but also remain injury free.
For a rider with an existing injury, having a review of your riding style on an anatomical level can help establish possible remedial changes to help return to full power and comfort.
Retül have been providing technologically advanced bike fitting solutions from 2007.
Major organisations like British Cycling and pro teams including Team Sky and Team Europcar have all relied on Retül to provide their riders with the best riding fit data and fit adjustments possible.
With credentials like that, we thought that there was only one bike fit solution to choose from when we decided we wanted to offer professional grade bike fitting to our customers here in the North West.
We welcome our customers to visit our studio at any time to have a look around and talk to our team to see if a fitting session would benefit you.**
A typical Retül bike fitting session would include the following:
  • The fitter conducts an initial physical assessment of the rider, and at this point can address the rider's concerns about performance, pain, or any other issues the rider hopes to alleviate during the bike fit.
  • LED markers are strategically placed on eight anatomical points of the rider: the wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, heel, and toe.
  • As the rider pedals, Retül's sensor bar gathers real-time, three-dimensional data of the rider's pedal strokes and movements.
  • Retül's rotating platform allows the fitter to collect data for both sides of the rider without the rider leaving the bike.
  • The rider's data is compiled into a reader-friendly report for analysis by the fitter. The fitter can then assess the rider's position and make necessary adjustments.
  • The Zin, Retül's handheld digitizer, allows the fitter to digitally measure the rider's bike at 13-15 points, depending on the bike. The Zin can measure fixed points, contours, and curves, and provides a complete digital map of the bike.
  • The fit information is saved and stored on the fitter's computer.
  • The data includes the rider's personal profile, measurements from the fit, bike measurements, and the rider's final fit position.
  • The fitter will be able to access and print these records for comparison and tracking of historical fit data for the client.
Please note that sessions may vary depending on a particular rider’s specific needs or requirements and so the above list should not be seen as definitive.
Our dedicated specialists here at The Bike Factory will always ensure we try and get the best results for your needs and we’ll always talk you through the options before your session.
