online virtual bikefitting

No matter the circumstances many of us decide to spend some time training indoors. Even if you’re not competing in a race your position has a huge impact on how efficient you move.

Changing your stationary bike setup will help you to prevent strain injuries and improve your comfort. 

Online bike fitting includes movement screening and visual assessment. If you have any concerns regarding the bike setup let me know in which bike model you’re using and we find the way to make it work.

If you are considering this, please understand the biggest limiter would be your mechanical skill to adjust the bike and sometimes, the tools you may need to adjust the parts correctly.


custom made insoles

Injury free strong performance requires foot stability. You might and should (!) achieve that by doing excercises but in some cases a good pair of insoles is inevitable.

If you’re running or riding on long distances or suffer form structural changes in your feet you shall consider using insoles. I’m happy to provide long-lasting, custom-made support for your feet.

I had a very special bike fitting experience with Lloyd. After an evaluation of my problems (knee, back, numb... hands/toes) and my goals we did a video analysis to adjust all parameters at my bike. But Lloyd also put a strong focus on my specific body characteristics (flexibility, strength etc.) and defined a personal pre-ride routine for me. Due to a length difference in one leg we also fitted my shoes and the pain in my knee is gone since then! 🙂 With the additional pressure analysis of my saddle, we identified an issue with my contact to the saddle. It ended up in getting a new saddle and not having any problems with long rides anymore. Overall a perfect fitting experience, especially as I was able to return to do some fine tuning after a few rides. Will be back with my next bike for sure - highly recommended!read more

I cannot recommend at all this "professional" bike fitting: I needed to setup my bike due to a pain in my front knee... and my saddle was raised 3 cm. The new bike setting caused me from the first ride a back knee pain which developed later into inflammation.I did not get any customer support from Llyod. I tried to contact him several times but he just disappeared...I wasted many weeks of biking to recover my knee and a lot of money for a very bad bikefitting service as well.No recommendation at all!Update to my previous feedback:1- I booked the appointment (17.03.2021 at 09.00 am - in person) using this email.2 - there is no misunderstanding, your customer service is poor: I tried to contact you several times (via phone and messages) and I did not receive any answer. I reported the problem to you the same day.3- I never received the measurements of my bike.I am not going to schedule a second appointment.My experience with you has been negative.I will seek out other specialists.Kind more

Absolutely mind blown…I would have never expected the positive impact the fit has had on my riding. Not only was... Lloyd an absolute pro and awesome human being. The expertise he brings to the table is just tremendous.My power output has increased massively after the fit, but this is actually just secondary to the amazing feeling on the bike. It really feels effortless and comfortable compared to before.Would recommend 10000%!I will definitely return on a regular basis to check for changes and adapt to them.Thanks Lloyd it has been an absolute more

Lloyd was very knowledgeable. My fitting was done over zoom, Lloyd in Germany, I am in the US. He was able to see... which muscles are a bit weaker than others and had me reposition by cleats to help. He also had me adjust my bike seat and handlebar position. I can really feel the difference in my pedal stroke and it is so much smoother when I am out of saddle. I would strongly recommend a bike fit with more

I had a virtual bike fit with LLoyd the other week and was very impressed by his expertise and easy going manner. My... cadence and power have been improved but more important the feel of the bike stoke. I would recommend Lloyd without more

I purchased a Peloton bike back in August and I wish I would have contacted Lloyd that day for a fitting. Lloyd took... the time to not only fit my bike and help me correctly position my cleats but he also shared useful information to make my rides even more efficient and enjoyable. My new settings are perfect and can't believe how much more enjoyable my rides are now. Lloyd is happy to share his wealth of cycling experience and knowledge and answer any question you might have. Highly recommended for fitting your indoor or outdoor bike. Best money I've spent since purchasing my more

I had a virtual bike fitting with Lloyd for the Peloton bike. He was easy to work with and knowledgeable. From start... to finish, you can tell he has worked with professional cyclists.I had been having hip flexor pain for months. After preliminary adjustments, I was able to ride during the fitting without pain! He continued to work with me and adjusted nearly all my settings so that I can work efficiently. After our session, he sent me additional information including equipment and exercises. I highly recommend!read more

I was so pleased with how thorough this service provided. It was so much more than sitting on the bike and adjusting.... I was skeptical about a virtual fit but it was very well done and effective. I recommend this to any type of rider and definitely as soon as you begin riding. Just one ride after the adjustment and my hip and knee feel so much better. Lloyd’s knowledge is very apparent in the first 5 minutes. Very worth the more
