Paul's personal Feedback from just a few of his recent bike fits:

Brian, Bianchi C2C: Many thanks for setting me up on my new bike Paul, worked at treat, and yes I succesfully completed my 'London to Paris' challenge ride; thanks again.

Jacqueline, Bianchi Via Nirone 7 Dama: My bike after the fitting feels REALLY GOOD, so thank you! I think you did the perfect job

Bob, Trek 1.2: I couldn't believe the difference Paul, in comparison to how it felt prior to the fitting it now feels 'effortless', 

Dawn, Specialized Ruby. On my first ride after the bike fit, bike isn't twitchy at all and I feel I've got more control. With the narrow handle bars, I feel more tucked in as well. Pedalling feels smoother, gear change is smooth and quiet. Many thanks to Paul and you for the bike fit, my Ruby really feels like a new bike. All the best to C&N Cycles.

Phill Tromans Hello Paul, hope you're well. You'll be pleased to hear that the fit seems to have had a really good effect on my riding; after a month I've felt much stronger all round and have been able to ride faster and for longer. Phill Tromans
 
Chris, 58cm Speclialized Allez, email sent in reply to our email attaching Chris's bike fit data: Dear Paul, Thank you ever so much for this, it was truly a pleasure meeting you yesterday and I really felt like you took your time and cared, to ensure I got the best possible fit and experience. It counts for a lot. Indeed, I was so happy with the ride home, I got out on my bike again this morning and out for 80miles tomorrow morning in the new Forrest. Fantastic...EDIT Chris saddle height went from 794 to 822mm, 130mm stem fitted and bars rotated to increase reach

Dan Hunt: Giant Propel. Thanks for the time yesterday, sat in the turbo last night for an hour and could feel the difference... 

Julian: Specialized Allez 56cm: Saddle height was increased from 735mm to 757mm, before the 'fit' it just felt wrong, now it simply doesn't; it feels perfectly natural and more efficient; I can ride for miles now!

Hannah via social media: Great bike fitting this morning at candncycles, can't wait to pick up my Trek Emonda in a few days!

Guy: Planet X Pro Carbon. First ride after the fit I timed myself as usual up a climb I have ridden literally hundreds of times on my daily commute; I have never been so fast.

Rob: 'Whyte Suffolk': Thanks you for fitting session Paul, it has proved very useful and I learnt a lot also.  My commute time was almost immediately down by about 5 mins on average, with less fatigue. My times are steadily improving also as the legs get used to the new position!  So all in all a very good return. Kind regards, Rob  

Bhuvant: Giant Defy: The bike fit simply made a big difference Paul

Stewart: Trek Domane: I was just quicker, I was significantly quicker, by minutes, not seconds!

Simon: Boardman Team Road.Just as you said, I instantly noticed a difference, feeling more power and vastly improved endurance.

Crispin: www.cavespider.co.uk, Specialized Allez. The changes you made did have a direct effect best demonstrated immediately after I had seen you. The hill climb described on Strava as 'Fullers Wood Top section’ takes me normally around 4’40”. After your adjustments I did this in 4’07”, a similar result on a number of other sections on my route. So really pleased, thank you.

Steve, Cervelo TT Bike. You were right, it made a difference; PB in first two time trials!

Neil, Trek Emonda: Just to let you know the bike felt incredible and the fit is very comfortable. Overall I'm thrilled with the purchase. Think I'm going to be spending plenty of time in the saddle from now on! Massive thanks to you and the team, particularly for the fitting, which feels great.

Joanne: First ride after my Bike Fit a not very fit me did a PB on Box Hill!

All listed below from Enigma Bicycleworks where I worked until June 2016

Neil: Bike great - 50 miles ridden, stem exactly right, higher saddle a revelation... Two Strava KoMs in the last 10 days...Neil (Click the following link for an account by Neil for Cycletechreview.com.)

Steve: I have had my first real ride yesterday evening with the CTC and the changes you made to the geometry on my Cannondale became apparent.  I was noticeably much faster and even the hill climbing seemed easier.  Also I think as I become more used to the different riding position there will be more performance to come.  The only downside is that I may be banished to the fast group as 22 mph plus on the flat with no drafting is a bit above the moderate group pace.  Edit:I have now done longer distances including a 98 mile ride with some fairly stiff gradients and the new set up worked fine for that especially as I am now getting more used to it.

Andy: You were absolutely right about the extra 30 mm of saddle height on my current bike. A great improvement and I haven't looked back since.Regards, Andy.

Mark: The bike fit was a huge help. I have less strain in my shoulders, and yet I can still get low on the drops and out of the air. You're assessment of needing to move back 20-30mm was spot on. I'm riding on the hoods now, rather than back on the top 'bends' before the hoods.

Nick: Thanks again for yesterday. I had a great ride back. Roads wet but not too bad and the bike is a treat. Comfortable but lively. Must be the combination of that lovely frame and that expert bike fit!

Grigor Wallace 'British Best All Rounder' Bronze Medalist 2013  Via Twitter: Grigor Wallace @velopeak @Smithsrcc @ bike fit he said layback post, I said straight, now changed 2 layback #bikefitterknowsbest

Martin:I went out on my usual club run on Saturday featuring 80 miles and 5500 feet of climbing. You may recall you heightened by saddle by 14mm which was obviously a significant increase. The good news is that I had less back pain than normal and the handling was not altered. If anything I felt more at one with the bike.

Derek: If you recall, when you did the finished set up you raised the saddle height by 2 cm and shortened the stem (I think) to 110cms. I now know that you were definitely right on both measures. The saddle height seems to have cleared some knee and hip problems that I was getting.
