A Physio Bike fit is a professional, comprehensive bike fit done by a Registered Physiotherapist. Fitting the body to the bike, and the bike to the body. This service may be covered under extended health plans under Physiotherapy.
Performance, comfort and efficiency starts with the right fit. Proper fitting ensures maximum comfort and a great ride with improved power and efficiency. If your fit is not quite right, you may experience sore or numb hands, feet or saddle discomfort, knee pain, neck pain, back pain and ultimately a reduction in power production. Everyone’s body is different, and even the smallest millimeter adjustments on the bike, can make a world of difference. The bike is a machine that can be adjusted to fit the rider using wedges, cleat adjustmets, shims, stem, handlebar and saddle adjustments. Registered Physiotherapists are movement experts, so their ability to analyse your body both on, and off the bike leads to a superior fit that is individualized to you and your machine.

Part 2 is booked 2 days or more following Part 1. This is the meat and potatoes of your bike fit. In this one to one and a half hour visit, an in-depth analysis is performed and all of the on bike adjustments adjustments are made.
