Professional Bike Fitting Services

Welcome to Hooked on Cycling cycle superstore in Bathgate, West Lothian, Scotland. Hooked on Cycling offers professional bike fitting services in Scotland using a bike fitting jig and software all the way from Italy. We also have in store a Watt Bike as used by British Cycling to test cyclists power ratios and functional threshold tests which we can use to extend our bike fitting services.

Why have a bike fit? If you already have a bike and if you have not been professionally fitted to the bike then a professional bike fit could improve your cycling efficiency. If you get sore arms, shoulders, back etc during a ride then maybe you bike is not fitted to you correctly. A professional bike fit could improve this.

Our professional bike fitter Nick has provided over 1000 bike fits, he studies articles published throughout the world on different techniques. If you are going to purchase a carbon road bike costing a few thousand pounds then you want it to fit correctly, with the bike fit jig, software and watt bike combination we believe at Hooked on Cycling we are the only bike shop in Scotland that can offer this service to an extremely high level. We believe we have a unique service and setup in Scotland.

We also offer an electronic LOOK Keo cleat fitting service, getting your cleats in the exact position is critical if you do not want to experience knee problems in the future. The state of the art Look cleat fitting system expertly locates the precise position fore and aft and angular position.

Whenever you purchase any type of bike from Hooked on Cycling we provide a manual bike fit. If you purchase a road bike, we will provide free of charge a professional bike fit using the fitting jig and software.

Manual Bike Fit

Any person purchasing any bike from Hooked on Cycling will be provided with a free post purchase manual bike fit which includes setting up saddle height, saddle for-aft adjustment etc.

Professional Bike Fit (Race Bike) £70

On our professional bike fitting jig we shall take various body measurements and use sophisticated software to determine your exact bike set up. Using the data from the software we shall position your saddle to the correct position. We shall then analyse your pedal stroke and determine from side-wards and front/back view that you have a smooth pedalling motion with no hip rotation or knee misalignment. With wedges and shims we can often resolve these issues but to fit these you shall need an assessment from a trained  physiotherapist first to determine any leg length discrepancies.  The fitting of wedges and shims is provided at an extra cost. Once we have these items resolved we then move onto the handlebars and brake levers to get these positioned correctly for your type of riding. The bike fitting process can take up to 2 hours.

What Our Customers Say:

Nick was cracking for my bike fit as we all setting up my di2 with the qRings. Very helpful, honest and could not have been more accommodating. Spent hours with me ensuring I was happy with the setup as well as giving me the opportunity to try different positions. Could not recommend him any more highly. – Andy Auld

Went to Hooked on cycles for a bike Fit not knowing what to expect. Results exceeded all expectations and my position on the bike has radically altered(along with my strava times!). Nick is very knowledgeable and very thorough and I even picked up a couple of general riding tips along with an indication of what the correct position should be on the bike in order to maximize power output. If you are undecided on whether or not to get a bike Fit done then I would say go for it, it’s probably worth more than any upgrade to your bike and for only £50 what have you got to lose! – Andrew Phillips
