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.

Bike Boxes French Riviera

For 2023 we have Bike Boxes for Road, Triathlon and Gravel bikes available for transporting your bikes back home after your cycling trip to the Côte d’Azur.

The South of France is a mecca for cycling, and because of this there are large numbers of cardboard sheeting and bike boxes scrapped, which is a shame because this is a precious resource. To take advantage of this, and to offer a much-needed service to travelling cyclists, you can now order your cardboard Bike Box (and Boxes) here in Nice.
Our Boxes are robust cardboard, with hard foam reinforced corners and center, soft foam protection for frames and wheels, and robustly taped edges.
A freight service is also available for your bikes via our UPS partner here in Nice.
