While we’ve got you

Our expert answers a few quickies


How often should I get a bike fit?

When you first start cycling you may need a bike fit more frequently than an experience­d rider does. It may also depend on what type of cycling you do, and if you’re changing discipline­s – a club cyclist who wants to race may need a more aero position.

Should I point my toes down like pros do?

If you like – it’s up to you, this one. If it allows you to generate more power then go for it.

What’s the most efficient cadence? Biomechani­cally speaking it’s about 50-60rpm. I wouldn’t actually suggest you do it though!
