Recommended Posts

i've done it

finally

went to Arran Brown last night and got my bike set-up the way it is supposed to be

he swears i won't feel any pains from now on

my seat is almost touching the sky though Smile really scary and no i can't touch the ground anymore

 

so now i have to prepare myself psycologically so that i overcome the fear of unclipping with a seat that high

 

clever me then goes home and decides that maybe it is a good idea to try and practice in the house

well it wasnt so clever after all

i now have a carpet burn on my knee

my arm looks like someone beat me up and i have (or will as soon as the internal pain stops LOL) a huge bruised area on my lower back

 

it will be really interesting to see how i recover from that in 3 days

will try and squeeze in a few training rides before sat but who knows........

 

so

how many of you have had your bike set up proper?

and how many are 100% and never looked back?

really looking forward to non aching hands after a long ride........

 

and sorry admin if this is in the wrong forum topic i never do know where exactly to start a discussion..........

Bored girl, I went to see Arran and he set up my road bike for me.

Since then I have no pain (apart from dying up hills) when on the bike.

He also made some big changes to my set up and I can honestly say it helped.

 

What was even more amazin was that before  he set me up, he asked me if I had pain in specific parts of my body (and he was spot-on) just by looking at my original set up vs my body.

hehe, you're not supposed to get carpet burns from riding your bike at home. Riding other things yes, but not your bike LOL

 

Seriaassly, that was the best move you could make. I had my bike set-up by Arran and have never looked back.

Contact details and pricing??

 

I need to have the setup on my bikes checked too.

 

I had my Scott done in Klerksdorp before I got the Cannondale and was very happy.  It made a huge difference to have the setup done exactly for my build and riding style.

Sure, bored girl, those "injuries" seem completely consistent with riding a bike indoors, which so-o-o-o-o-o-o many people do.

 

My guess is that you are not bored at all!

BG - does he charge per fitting session or is it per bike?

 

I don't know BB, rather phone him.

 

With you a Little BB, it could work out rather expensive if it's per bike.

Thug - You hit the nail on the head there!

 

Me, 2 * road and 2 * MTB

Him, 2 * road and 1 * MTB

 

Will call him some time, perhaps do 1 road each and MTB then mimic the setup on the other? Probably an issue with different geometry of bikes as well. Ok better make that call!
