Why get a bike fitting?
How you ride your bike will also influence how your bike should be set up.
If you are an injury free rider doing weekly circuit racing, you ideal riding position is going to be very different to the rider who does 70mile sportive at the weekend, or the recreational rider who like a 10 mile ride out to a tea shop.
We understand that every rider and their position is individual as they are.

How often should I review my riding position?
There is no set rule to how often you need to check your riding position, cycling for many is a lifelong sport, as we get older our bodies change, this means the fitting on your bike needs to change too. Changes is our flexibility, strength and body weight all influence our ideal riding position and our comfort on the bike.
How will a bike fitting change my riding experience?
Improper positioning on the bike often results in an uncomfortable and disappointing ride, common complaints include riding with sore hands and numb feet, tight shoulders and back pain.
Proper fitting by C and N Cycles ensures maximum comfort, an enjoyable ride with efficient pedalling and increased power.

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

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!

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.
