What is GURU bike fitting and what does it involve?

Bike fit is an incredibly important aspect of cycling. A poorly adjusted bike can lead to injuries and inefficiency, so having your bike set up for you is paramount. In recent years cycling has become increasingly popular, and you can now see cyclists, either in groups or on their own taking over British roads – you’ll no doubt be riding alongside them. With this drastic increase in the number of people taking up cycling, bike fit has never been more important, since this new popularity means that more and more cyclists are hitting the road without much knowledge of the sport. What does GURU bike fitting involve? Any bike fit involves a lot of small adjustments to your bike which aim to make your riding experience as comfortable and efficient as possible. Possible adjustments include the height of the saddle, height of the handlebars, how far forward the saddle is, and alignment of your cleats. GURU have created a way of finding out your perfect bike set up to ensure you have the perfect ride. The GURU system allows for adjustments to be made instantly because the rider is actively involved in the process. This means that, instead of being prescribed a ‘best position, based on a bell curve of average angles, changes are made on the fly with instant feedback. It’s this that makes the GURU system stand out from other bike fit systems. The vertical and horizontal positioning of the bars and saddle can both be changed remotely whilst the rider is still pedalling, and this means that the GURU machine, although very smart, is only effective... read more

I managed to find a Cobb saddle after a bit of scouting around and took Brian’s advice on the Morgan Blue chamois cream. These changes allowed me to race a Sprint tri on Sunday (~30 mins in the saddle) in comfort. Very little fidgeting on the saddle. I’ve subsequently moved the arm pads apart by ~50mm and up by ~15mm which makes all the difference in opening up the chest; that plus the saddle mean that during this morning’s 1h turbo workout, I found I was more relaxed and comfortable on the aerobars than on the basebar – a surprise. Finally, there’s an adjustable stem for my Felt on order which will allow me huge flexibility in lengthening the saddle-cockpit distance where I want it and will allow me to get the pads and shifters exactly where I need them. Not quite done yet, but I want to thank you for not only for helping me find the right saddle, but also in resetting my understanding of how to work with the FIST measurements. Very best, Martin

I went to Ten-Point in the hope of achieving better endurance and comfort on longer sportives. Spending 2 hours with Helen was a revelation to me. I learned more about bike fit and pedalling effectiveness in that 2 hours than a lifetime of doing it myself – and I’m not young. The outcome, with a couple of component changes on my road bike and a bit of careful measuring and fine tuning, is a noticeably better set-up with great improvement in ability to comfortably last out long rides. The fit has definitely reduced aches and pains and also recovery time after rides. There is more to do on saddle comfort but the total experience is a sensational improvement for me. I can thoroughly recommend Helen and Ten-Point. But, don’t expect an easy time; the fit amounts to a full 2 hour turbo session with the ocassional break for adjustments. Thanks Helen.

Who in their right mind would make their first ride after a radical new bike fit and a new saddle that looks like torture device, the behemoth that is the Chiltern 100?! Well I can report that after a Guru bike fit it was the most comfortable ride possible – thanks to that other Guru, Helen Hall! Great day out, thanks BlackFish!

This is awesome yesterday amazing i cant stop singing your praises to everyone, I will add positive comments and feedback, plus if i can join the black fish please that would be awesome. Last night got home and practiced the pedalling for another hour on my turbo and found need to raise my saddle a little higher so i could get that same feeling i got in the fit. Result was 100rpm easy and good hour of steady base work then did some shoulder rehab :-). Overall i was so impressed yesterday service knowledge and whole feel was awesome and yeah the guru was ok haha i joke but the real guru is you and Brian. Great bit of kit with even better people using it. Oh and my report just awesome, plus fyi the best bike fit and experience i ve ever had ever.

First ride out yesterday and I love it already. I only had chance too do 15 miles but I can’t wait too get out again. Thanks once again

Took the bike for a training ride over the weekend and covered off 120 miles. Really happy with the results actually on the road! Bike Fit; In a word awesome, but this was for two very different reasons. Firstly and even as I type this no back pain what so ever! As the primary reason for getting the fit I can only be but over the moon with this. Secondly and by far the more impressive was available power I had on ascent and breaking away from groups, in short this surprised me and those riding with me! I have no garmin to put this in numbers but I PB’d and it felt like I had more to give. Big smiles!!!! Changes to bike; Just gave me confidence, gears and brakes were crisp and surprisingly the stem really gave me a better feel when steering, really noticeable on descent at speed. Just chuffed with whole process, can’t wait for seat post to arrive! Not sure if you can really separate the fit from the changes but equally not sure I care. It just feels so good.
