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.
I have had a number of bike fits with Mike. He is very knowledgeable, patient and really friendly.
Mike has helped me find the best, most efficient and comfortable position for Ironman racing and I find his fitting skills invaluable.
I was interested in getting a bike fit again after several years and Mike was highly recommended. I was contemplating doing a triathlon so he fitted some aero bars on my road bike to try out for a few weeks. The outcome of the fitting resulted in minimal changes however the advice and recommendations for a potential upgrade bike sometime in future is valuable. I have also been able to make good use of the clip on aero bars I purchased.
I had a couple of bike fit sessions with Mike when trying to achieve a more aero position for triathlon.
In the first session we considered changes to my road bike set up versus looking at a TT bike. I decided on the latter and Mike gave lots of time and advice on options, and then having narrowed the list down helped with frame sizing for each.
Once the new bike arrived Mike quickly transferred my road dynamics over and then went about tweaking and maximising the set up for racing.
Mike offers a great, attentive service and shares his own knowledge and experience to help his customers. Delighted with my set up, Mike even recommended a mechanic to sort the final details. Most importantly though - the fit has certainly lead to a quicker bike leg when racing and a more aero and yet sustainable racing position.
