For this build we used Shimano's ST - R785 Di2 hydraulic levers coupled to an XTR Di2 rear deraiileur with a 42 tooth cassette and 42T font single chainring. The Shimano levers are set up to change the gears with both hands; the right lever makes the gears harder, the left easier. The gearing ratios are suitable for road and off-road, for more off-road and hillier rides a 38T chainring could be considered.
"A very thorough, professional and personal service. I was keen to analyse my bike position after breaking my hip. The custom footbeds and alterations to my position feel really good, just wish I’d come sooner! Many thanks"

"Hey Julian and Phil,
I hope you are both well.
I just completed a 21 hour week on my new 165mm cranks and I am in love. They feel so so great!
Thank you for all your help. I’ve never felt so comfortable on my bike before.
All the best,
National Champion / Professional Bike Rider
"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!"
"Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position.
Felt more connected and compact on the bike.
Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."
