Bike Position


My biggest tip, more than anything, is to get your position right on the bike.
It’s crucial for comfort, but it’s also crucial for getting the most out of your body. If you get your position right, not least your saddle height, you can gain a huge percentage in performance without getting any fitter.
I see so many people who spend thousands of dollars on a bike but who have a really poor riding position. Getting that right is worth far more than an expensive set of carbon wheels.

​Get the most experienced person you can find – whether it’s someone at a bike shop or in your local club – to look at you on the bike, to make sure your saddle height is right, to make sure your handlebar is in the right position, all those things. That’s the biggest thing.
