Performance starts at the pedal

We firmly believe that to perform the correct bike fit for Road or Triathlon bikes you have to start with the way you are fixed to your bike. With modern clip in pedals you are creating 2 fixed points between the pelvis and the foot and nearly all bike fitters do not give this area enough time. We spend up to an hour just on this part of your fit making sure your delivery of power to the pedals is perfect and that you are comfortable from the foot right up to the lower back. This is the basis for what we are trying to achieve – Making your bike disappear from under you!

By this statement we are referring to that position that is so comfortable, so easy to deliver power to the pedals that you can just focus on turning your body in to the engine that drives the bike forward.

Custom insoles

We are able to make and advise on custom and non-custom insoles for your bike shoes and we highly recommend these – one pair will last you a decade for most cyclists! No more foot roll, collapsing arches, toes going numb. Precision fitting meaning you ride longer in more comfort and with less power wastage – Prices for insoles from £79.

THE SOLESTAR STABILIZATION-DELTA

The SOLESTAR insoles are based on a highly innovative and patented concept, the Stabilization-Delta.

The Stabilization-Delta works like a clamp in your cycling shoes: with its three main contact points it provides strong support for the foot during the entire pedaling cycle. The foot is brought into the optimal neutral position for power transmission and then held there for the duration of the pedaling cycle.

Where do we go next?

Well, that is then down to what you are after as a cyclist or triathlete. We can perform our “road fit” at road riders and cycling enthusiasts looking for maximum comfort or for the competitive athlete we can go down the”aero fit” route with how we turn comfort in to aerodynamic performance as well as maximum power delivery . “Aero is everything” is a statement used by our fastest athletes and aerodynamics is a current hot topic in cycling and triathlon. Going as fast as you can for the minimum amount of effort via an optimised position is what all cyclists should strive for and for the triathlete; delivering this with the ability to run well off the bike is the ultimate aim.

Saddle analysis and advice


Part of our bike fit process is to ensure you are using the saddle (this being on of the 3 main anchor points between your body and machine) that is most suited to you and the type of riding you are doing. Here at Total Tri Bike fit we use the Selle Italia fit system to ensure that this is done precisely and that you are either on your perfect saddle or we can advise what the best saddle to use from our extensive range would be. Using the Selle Italia fit system does not just allow us to measure for their saddles, but out expert bike fitters can take this knowledge and advise on other brands. We carry ISM, Fizik, Aerocoach and Prologo in stock as well for road bikes as well as triathlon/TT bikes and for men and women.
