Bike+Body MOT

Make 2024 count. Start the year like a professional with a Cyclefit Bike + Body MOT

New Year, New You. The Resolution Fallacy

A good headline, but for most of us a rubbish plan. One of our great friends at Cyclefit, Robin, is an evolutionary psychologist. And one of his grounding wisdoms is that:

'it's almost impossible to quickly change the way we think. But it is possible to change our environment, and this can then lead to a change in how we think'.


Arguably, the best change of environment is the addition of structure. And the best structure at this time of year, is a Bike+Body MOT.

Cyclefit Bike+Body MOT

A Bike + Body MOT is effectively the same service that we provide to team riders this time of year. A complete body and equipment audit, to make sure that both are ready and optimised to face the stresses of the coming season. The big difference being that professional riders have a squadron of mechanics that service their bikes. For us it is Barna, Ed and Miguel, who assiduously fettle your bike to peak performance in the Cyclefit Workshop.

The Body - A Conversation + A List = A Plan

The committed professional or amateur cyclist approaches these sessions with an objective or aspiration for this season or beyond. The conversation leads to a list of elements that could be amended or improved - such as:

  • I get foot-pain after three hours riding in the mountains
  • I get saddle soreness when riding
  • My power and performance has plateaued
  • I am coming back to cycling and need to review my position
  • I have a big ride/event scheduled for the summer and need to check my position

The Bike

Every Bike+Body MOT includes an Intermediate Level Service at Cyclefit.

Beyond the servicing, the same wisdom applies - a conversation, list and plan. Themes could be:

  • Is my gearing appropriate for my season goals?
  • Do I need to change/amend components?
  • What are the best tyres for most of my riding?
  • Should I go tubeless or clincher (sit down for this one)
  • Should I be 2 x or 1 x for my riding goals?

What our clients say

  • "I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"
