Got a Trek and want to get a proper bike fitting? Well, you're in luck because next week (10th to the 15th of October) is Trek Madone Week at Cyclefit in London and if you have a Madone or a Trek Speed Concept, no matter where you bought it, you're eligible for a free fitting.
Cyclefit will be working for the whole week with Jez Loftus, the man who put me through a Trek Bike Fit earlier this year, and the rest of the Trek Fit Services team training their UK and European Trek Fit instructors which is why they need willing volunteers to be measured up on their Madones and Speed Concepts.
If you don't have a Trek but would like to you will also be eligible for a bike fitting on Cyclefit's new SICI SizeCycle for a new Madone, Project One Madone, or Speed Concept. The normal cost of a fitting procedure is £195, but if you buy a a new Trek you will get your money refunded.
If you want to get an idea of what a Trek Fit is like check out the video and story of my fit at the end of last year. It was a comprehensive process during which my flexibility was measured and my position was assessed on my own bike and then on a Trek Madone 3.2. The Trek Fit philosophy is based on Cyclefit's approach and is very much about doing no harm and giving you a benchmark fit from which you can then make adjustments to suit your body and style of riding.
There's only so many bike fittings you can do in a week so we're guessing this offer will be on a first come first served basis. To make a booking your fitting call Robyn on 0207 430 0083 or email: info [at] cyclefit.co.uk
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
