Now's the perfect time to get your set-up perfected

Bike fit specialists Velosolutions now have a new fitting studio in London and their next fit sessions are later this week.

The new venue is Energy Lab which is based at 2-8 Scrutton St, London EC2A 4RT. That’s close to Shoreditch High Street tube station. The October fitting dates are from Thursday 18th until Saturday 20th.

If you’re a competitive rider, the start of the off-season is the perfect time to have your ride position assessed and altered. It means you’ll have plenty of opportunity to adapt to your new set-up before you start racing again. And if you’re in the market for a new bike, having an assessment before you splash the cash makes a lot of sense in order to make sure you get the right size.

Guiseppe Gainnecchini heads over to the UK from Italy to perform bike fits every few weeks, so even if you can’t make it this time, maybe you can in the future. Check out the Velosolutions website for the details.
