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 great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."

"Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."
"A highly personalized and very friendly service, giving good advice and adjustments that are helpful whatever level of cyclist you are."
"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."
