We set up the basic riding position on all new bikes collected from us, but whether your bike is new or old we believe the best route to the ideal position is a professional bike fit ensuring comfort and performance.

If you suffer from any of the following conditions then a bike fit should be on your list of potential solutions:

  • Knee pain
  • Saddle sores
  • Aching shoulders
  • Numb hands
  • Numb feet
  • Sore neck
  • Poor posture
  • Long lasting injuries such a back and knee issues

We offer bike fitting services on all bike brands and can even provide you with your ideal bike measurements via a geometry fit on our sizing rig.

If you haven’t had a bike fit before we generally recommend our standard fit in the first instance. Don’t worry if you subsequently decide to upgrade to a full fit though; we will only charge you for the difference in cost.

Talk to a member of the team if you are unsure what the best solution is for you.

We can also recommend and refer bike fit customers to our on site Physiotherapy practice Ludgate Clinic if a fitting identifies a bio-mechanical issue. They offer all new clients an initial consultation free of charge.

Bike Fitting Types

Full 3D motion capture bike fitting - £225

Giant St Paul’s is the first store in London to use the 3D Motion Analysis (3DMA) system from 3D motion capture experts STT.

We have experience with the majority of bike fitting systems that are either currently, or have previously been, available and we have selected this 3DMA bike fitting technology to ensure we are bringing the latest innovations in fitting to our customers.

We are one of the first bike fitting studios in the UK to offer this service and the only location in Central London.

This system uses more data points than any other comparable bike fitting systems ensuring we can provide the most detailed bike fit analysis to you. Our software allows us to isolate individual parts of your body so we can iron out tiny imperfections in your fit and help you to get maximum performance from your bike.

This session includes a review of your physical makeup, flexibility, injury history, problems on the bike, shoe and cleat set-up. Some of the session is done using traditional methods of bike fitting and subsequently making the necessary adjustments to the bike.

Once these have been done and we get you in the best position we can. We then dig deeper using the 3DMA motion capture to see how the body is moving on the bike and what impact that is having on comfort, performance and balance.

You will receive the following from the bike fitting:

This session is the most popular fitting option for both those who are relatively new to cycling or a seasoned cyclist who wants to check their existing position due to a change in intensity or body shape.
