From discussing your ideal bike, then to size testing, brand choice, model and equipment, then all the way through to bike shop choice and bikefitting, Nick helps you step-by-step all the way through to that magical first ride.

Nick has extensive experience riding, racing and working with cyclists, mechanics and bike shops in French and English with his group of cycling services including bikefitting, cycling tours and coaching.

Bike and Frame sizing choice

Cycling happiness starts with the right size bike!
Don’t be fooled by online sizing charts, innerseam formulas or sales people peddling a glittering bike that is “perfect for you size” after taking a hasty set of measurements.

All cyclists are highly individual and the right sized bike is a 100% dependent on your background, strengths, weaknesses, injuries and experience rather than a measurement.

Bike sizing using the Wattbike
To test and confirm your perfect road, triathlon, gravel or urban bike size, we use a professional-grade Wattbike at le lab cycling, Nice.
Using a series of muscular tests we have devised for clear muscle indication and around 15-20 minutes of varied pedaling cycles (nothing too hard!), at the end of the session we will have a clear starting point for choosing the frame, geometry, brand and bike shop that can deliver the correct bike for you.
