Bike fitting

A mere centimeter can be the difference between hard and soft, between having a tough time and having fun, between doubt and certainty.

A bike fitting is no longer only for pros. Having your bike fitted makes cycling more enjoyable and gives you the opportunity to sort out any of those aches and pains you usually find when cycling a poorly fitted bike. And whether you buy a top model or one at entry-level: we ensure that you can make optimal use of your strength. We ensure that all your energy actually ends up on the tarmac and that you are comfortable on your bike.

Our fit service can take up to 2-3 hours using the Retül technology by Specialized. During this process, the fit specialist will personalise your bike position and equipment choice. In the end, saddle selection and position, shoes, footbeds, cleats position, and handlebar position are all optimised to your body.

Andrew Valette:
Thanks a million for the bike fit yesterday. Took it out for a spin last night and could not believe the difference in speed and efficiency. New watts and speed numbers on the screen!

Stefan Bolt
If you think that you’re sitting on your bike perfectly after all these years. Think again. Your body also changes, so a periodic fitting is crucial for sitting comfortably and efficiently on your bike

Seroj de Graaf:
“I started cycling a few years ago, but always got saddle pain and pain in my knees and shoulders on trips longer than 80km. I got a full bike fit. Jeffrey helped me very professionally and advised me. Two weeks ago I cycled in 3 days from London to Paris without complaints. All ailments have been remedied. I can recommend it to everyone, because your bike will not only ride more pleasantly, but you will also learn a lot about your own body and posture. “

Wim Meijer:
“After I had purchased a new bicycle somewhere else, I quickly suffered from numbness in my scrotum while cycling. Adjusting the saddle didn’t help and I couldn’t figure it out with the bike shop. On the advice of an acquaintance, I ended up at Kaptein. I was helped very professionally by means of a saddle measurement. It turned out that I needed a completely different saddle. They mounted it directly and now I have no problems anymore. It’s great that there are still real professionals. ”
