Recommended Posts

I'm looking to get a bike fitment done, specifically for XC MTB. Im pretty now on the scene and I don't know what the options are. Would be nice to hear from others that have had fitments done what their experience has been where they were and what the options are.

 

I did a 100km ride this weekend and suffered a fair amount of lower back pain, numb crotch, and towards the end a bit of knee pain. It's quite clear that my setup is not right!

Lower back - stem to long

Croth - Saddle position is wrong

Knee - Cleat positioning not right

Not to be confused with Dinamic in Noordhoek, an authorized Retul bike centre. Confusing hey! :blink:

If i may, what are the charges for a bike setup/fitment the ergofit way?

 

You are looking at R 700 for an ErgoFit and R 950 for an ErgoMax which looks at foot alignment, and leg length discrepancy correction on top of the actual fitment.

I had ErgoFit at one of the big CT bike shops who then built my MTB up using these measurements, just days before Knysna races last year (my previous bike was stolen). The back pain I suffered during these 2 events proved that this system does not work for everyone.

 

Steve at CycleLab in Cape Town changed my stem and handlebars and did a new fitment - free of charge too. But its personal preference I guess. Trial and error as to what works for you.

Dan Grobler (biokenetics & cyclist himself) in Somerset West (he is opposite Vergelegen mediclinic)....a.f.a.i.k. he doesn't charge an arm & leg either!!
