Hello there,

Search facility down at time of writing, so apologies if this has been posted recently....

Looking for recommendations for a good bike fitter in Perth. Bought a new 48cm Orbea recently, I'm 168cm tall myself, but have developed a bit of pain in one of my knees, could be a bike fit thing, could me a too much too soon thing either (been a while between rides, 5 years in fact....). Inseam 76.5 cm, saddle height 68cm.....

Found a lot of stuff by Steve Hogg re. cleat position, my shoes (Northwave) only let my foot go as far forward as pedal spindle, might need new shoes to allow a bit of experimentation with that, also would love if someone in Perth could do a good cleat rotation analysis also......

Cheers,

Daragh.

Make an appointment to see Damian Oldmedow at Physiotherepy Solutions in West Perth. He does a very good bike fit. Was involved at the AIS etc and knows his stuff

Rick at Churchill Cycles in Marmion St near Garden City does a full Fit-Kit setup and has a lot of practical experience. Under $100 I think. Fit-kit may not be the be-all and end-all but if you're setting up a new bike you may as well get the basics right before going into the high-tech stuff.

Sure you've got your saddle high enough? Having it too low has always been the cause of any knee ****les I've had. Pedal spindles should line up with the ball of your foot (bony protrusion on the inside edge of your foot) - fairly easy to check against spindle position when clipped in.
