    FAQ

    Why choose to SPORTSTECHLAB?

    Sportstechlab is focussed on one thing: to be the best bike fitter & mechanic in Oxford. If you would like a personalised service, from a Ph.D. graduate level store owner, then we are the bike fit studio & repair workshop for you.

    Dr Bryan Roberts is a qualified SICI Bike Fitter with over 6+ years experience, having conducted over 2000 bike fits in that time. He also has over 10 years experience as a consultant biomechanist (with a speciality in running shoes) to major sporting goods brands including Nike, Puma and Mizuno among others. This combination of expertise creates a unique process that examines your body rather than simply matching angles to a generic piece of software. Both the bike fit & gait analysis includes anatomical, physical, strength and flexibility assessments developed through years of practice.

    We hope that you choose experience at an affordable price.

    What is the Bike Fitting & Gait Analysis process?

  • Short interview to understand current pains & nigglesAssess flexibility of the lower body including hamstring, hip flexors and lower back
  • Assess your body movements dynamically
  • Work out discrepancies in strength between left & right sides
  • Assess natural foot position, shape, and forefoot varus / valgus
  • Full body angle assessment during exercise - knee, shoulder, back, hips and more
  • Adjust bike components or footwear to suit the rider / runner
  • Develop better technique outdoors
  • Optimise using video
  • Send report with final bike measurements (bike fit only)
  • What do I need to bring with me?

    For a bike fit, please bring your bike, cycling clothing, shoes, cleats (if you have them), and any medications. You will be expected to cycle for at least 20 minutes over the course of the 2 hour road or triathlon fit, or only 10 minutes for the commuter fit.

    For gait analysis, please bring your old running shoes, socks, running gear and be prepared to run outside (even if its raining) at your own pace.

    Price & payment of the services?

    Bryan is one of the most affordable bike fits in Oxfordshire, whilst being one of the most experienced. Despite having years of experience on sophisticated biomechanics system, Bryan chooses to use video to reduce the cost the client has to pay for the service.
