Retul Bike Fit

Bike Fit Service

Our experienced bike fitters have worked with World and Olympic Champions but most days we deal with people experiencing aches and pains.

A professional bike fit by Mickey Cranks will help optimize your power, comfort, efficiency and safety on the bike and in some cases, help you avoid serious injury or making an existing injury worse. The right bike fit will benefit all types of riders, from commuters and sportive riders, to competitive cyclists and tri-athletes.

When you visit Mickey Cranks for a professional Retül bike fit, you will discover how much happens before you even get on your bike. Your bike fit begins with an interview with our Retül certified professional so that we can understand your cycling history, riding style, previous injuries and goals. We understand that a proper bike fit involves the combination of advanced Retül technology and a trained professional who can spot real or potential problems throughout the fit process.

What is Retul?

Retül is utilied by Team Sky and British Cycling, and is the most advanced bicycle fitting system available on the planet. Using motion capture technology, Retül records the rider's positions in motion, therefore creating the most realistic picture of the rider's actual pedal strokes and body positions when out on the road and trails.

Why Have a Bike Fit?

If you are wondering whether you should consider Bike Fit, here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • Do you experience discomfort or pain in your body on the bike?
  • Are your knees, hips, low back, neck, shoulders, feet and hands completely happy when riding?
  • Do you feel entirely stable on the bike, especially when cornering or descending?
  • Do you avoid the drops on your road bike handlebars do you spend most of your time on the tops rather than the brake lever hoods?
  • Do you find yourself moving around on the saddle a lot throughout a ride or as terrain changes?
  • Do you ride climbs primarily standing out of the saddle?
  • Do you change your saddle position often to try finding a comfortable spot?

If you answered yes to any of these, your fit can likely be improved.
