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.
"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!"
"Very very personalised service. You arrive, they expect you, greet you by first name, have checked your file from past visits and set out very clearly what the process will be, what issues they're looking to address and how and they are happy to take the time to walk you through everything in layman's terms. Almost any professional service entity could learn a lot from how Cyclefit works. "
"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."

"The personal service from both Phil and Julian is second to none. They have such a wealth of experience in fitting that they can almost tell at a glance if something is just a little off. It felt as though it didn't matter how long it took to get the best position possible - even for an amateur cyclist like myself. Can't recommend them enough."
"Julian was very knowledgeable and explained the fitting process very well. He came highly recommended and i completely agree. Very happy with the service.
Instantly felt better on the bike. The pain i had in my knee went away right away.
