INCREASE COMFORT & IMPROVE PERFORMANCE
Retül provides bike fit technology and tools to help cyclists increase comfort and improve performance on their bikes. Retül has specialized in bike fit technology and training since 2007, teaching more than 350 bike fit training courses around the world and helping bike shops, fit studios, performance centers and medical professionals implement Retül fit services into their businesses.

Your fit on the bike is extremely important and it affects your power, comfort and effectiveness – that’s why it is important to focus on a proper Fit from our approved Retül Bike Fit Technician, Gary Moore.
Whether you’re just a new rider or a seasoned professional, having a badly Fitted bike can greatly affect the quality and enjoyment of your ride and lead to injury.
Retül Bike Fits are specifically designed to reduce cycle related injuries – ideal for riders of all levels.
THE RETÜL BIKE FIT PROCESS
Retül Bike Fits are the most advanced and sophisticated fittings within the industry. Our goal is to ensure every fit we complete is the most accurate and comprehensive they can be, allowing you to be able to ride with more comfort and performance and without fear of injuries because of poor bike setup.
Only approved, registered fitters can undertake a Retül Bike Fit. Gary Moore is an experienced Level 2 fitter, our customers all speak highly of Gary and how he conducts his fits. A read of our Google Reviews outlines the level or service and care he ensures on each and every bike fit he has completed.
When you arrive for your fit Gary will sit you down and go through the following:
Pre Fit Interview – We get to know a little about you and your riding history.
Physical Assessment – This will focus on injuries, joint ranges, leg length discrepancy test, and the thomas test.
Zinn the Bike – We will measure your current bike setup and positioning.
Riding the Bike – We will place you on either a Retül Müve bike or your own bike on a turbo trainer.
Placement of Markers – We will attach some infra-red LED markers, placed at eight anatomical points.
Bike Adjustments – Adjustments are made to the bike to optimise the fit.
Re-Zinn the Bike – After we have all your measurements we can apply these to your bike.
Fit Report Created – Your data is compiled into a report which can be emailed or printed for you to take away.
Once your fit is complete we will send you all your reports and see you for a follow up within 1-2 months (earlier if you experience any problems). This is to ensure you are getting all the benefits from your fit and happy with the customer service provided.
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
Your fitting will take between 2.5 – 3 hours, please ensure you bring the following along with you:
Your cycle clothing, this way we can see exactly how you are on your bike.
Your cycling shoes and socks, you can’t ride without them.
A cycle helmet and glasses, the measurements we take are precise, slight movements of the head when riding make all the difference.
Your bike, we can set this up on our turbo trainers, or you can use our Retül Müve bike.
A towel or a change of clothes can be a good idea.
