My coach recommended Velomotion for my bike fit as Mike was the guy that he trusted with his own fit, and I wasn't disappointed. Having had a full hip replacement 4 years ago, my racing position on returning to the sport was crucial. I had my first fit and spent a few weeks training in the new position, then another session to tweek things on a new bike set up. Another successful season followed with every single race except one resulting in a PB. I raced consistently faster on every single course for less power over the whole season. Can't argue with stats like that. Cheers Mike.
I contacted Mike looking for some general fitting advice and in particular ways to avoid the knee pain I'd been experiencing when both mountain biking and during Zwift sessions.
Mike performed a bike fit on both my road and mountain bikes and I've not experienced any knee pain with either since.
He additionally provided advice on some saddle issues I'd been enduring on longer road sessions and this area too has improved markedly.
The fit sessions have been relaxed; highly informative and have given me a far greater understanding of what I need to think about when riding.
Mike has also been able to advise me on my questions around which bikes would be suitable for my future cycling ambitions.
All-in-all a very positive experience - thanks.
I’d never had my road bike properly fitted before. What a revelation it was. The bike is now a joy to ride and is so much more comfortable.
I also had a TT bike setup, which riding this year I have produced multiple PBs and Top 10s in events.
I'd been struggling with back pain while mountain biking in the past couple of years and as many will know it detracts from the thrill of the sport. Happily after spending a couple of hours with Mike I've been pain free and buzzing to get back on the bike when life allows - thank you.
After a 7 day trip cycling from Calais to the Spanish border, approx 100 miles day, often with neck, back and shoulder pain. I decided for my next challenge (back to the Spanish border in the north to the tip of the border in the south as well as cycling across the State of Alabama), I really needed to take some advice from Mike (who had been recommended to me by a friend) on the amount of pain I was in during long periods in the saddle. I had my first detailed bike fit which illustrated my saddle, pedels, brakes and handle bars needed to be adjusted and was the cause of my pain.
Mike offered me the most amazing advice, support and guidance in preparation for my challenges. His attention to detail in adjusting my bike to the exact measurement was brilliant. When I needed to invest in a new part Mike researched his suppliers to get the best price in the quickest time. Once the adjustments had been made Mike followed up with emails and telephone calls to make sure I was happy and comfortable on my next distance ride.
Mike's knowledge, care and attention is simply outstanding. I really felt he was interested in me, my problems and my challenges. Last year I cycled across Spain and Alabama pain free and this year I’m off to Utah.
Mike Smith at Velomotion - Outstanding advice and guidance with simply fantastic results. Thank you. Highly recommended.
