From doubt to decision:

TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR NEXT BIKE PURCHASE

Whatever level of rider you are, our team will tailor your position and find the dream ride you’ve been looking for.

Forget Everything You Thought You Knew About Bike Buying

Foundation has redefined the art and science of bike sizing to create an experience that will finally give you the clarity and confidence to buy the right bike for you. We are more than just a bike fit. We will work with you every step of the way from figuring out your ideal position, finding the right geometries, to ultimately setting up your new dream bike exactly to your specifications.



Had a full fit with Mat before purchasing a gravel/touring bike, and then a follow up session once I had bought it. Mat was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and explained everything he was changing and adjusting. I had been nervous getting a fit as a relatively beginner female cyclist, but felt super comfortable through both the sessions and couldn’t recommend it more!

Buy With Knowledge, Not Guesswork!

Choosing to buy a bike based on a height sizing chart is guesswork. If you are ready to spend your hard earned cash on a new bike, and invest many, many hours in riding it, you want to know exactly what you are buying. We will act as your trusted and impartial advisor so you can find the ride you’ve always been looking for.

We Don’t Sell Bikes… We Are Impartial

We’re an independent studio and all we are interested in is finding the best fit for you. Since we have no obligations to any particular brands, we can offer you a completely impartial service. So you know we only ever have your best interests to heart.


What Riders Are Saying

Charlie talks to Colin, head coach at ABP Works about her bike fitting experience and how it helped her choose the right bike for her.


“…It transformed my riding experience – and that was just the beginning! Excellent service that taught me a lot about cycling, the right bike for me, and set me up well to find a new bike… wonderful work.”

– Saleem Vaillancourt


Sizing Starts With The Jig

This machine allows us replicate ANY bike position, so we can determine the ideal options for each of your contact points (Handlebar dimensions, stem length & angle, saddle choice, cleat position etc.)

Once we’ve found these, using our CAD software, we can translate these contact points onto a real bike.

We’re With You All The Way

We care about your results as much as you do. We don’t just stop at telling you what size bike you need. This is a comprehensive service where we research and advise which bike models will best suit your body proportions, riding style and ambitions.

Once you are the proud owner of your new steed, we can help set up the new bike exactly to your fit requirements and test it out on the Velopark road or mountain bike circuit. We’re with you from start to finish!

No other fit studio or bike shop in the country can offer the same level of testing or assurance.

I had a fit with Mat at Foundation Fit ahead of buying my first time trial bike. I was hugely impressed by how tailored the session was to my goals and how Mat was able to analyse the idiosyncrasies of my movements patterns in order to find my optimum position on the bike.

The equipment Foundation Fit uses means that every element of your riding position can be adjusted during the fit. What is most impressive though is the depth of Mat’s knowledge and experience.

Having seen the nuance that goes into finding the best riding position and how individual it is, I can’t imagine spending money on a bike without having a fit like this.

I would strongly advise anyone planning to purchase a bike or experiencing discomfort while cycling to book a session with Foundation Fit. It is worth every penny.

Frequently Asked Questions

It is natural to think ‘Will this really work for me?’.
Our track record with thousands of riders proves that if you work hard and commit, you will achieve remarkable results too.
But if you are still unsure, here are the answers to the most common questions we get asked on a daily basis. 


“I’m not a professional rider, my bike doesn’t need to fit perfectly”

It’s so common for riders to think that they need to be a professional athlete to benefit from a bike fit. This couldn’t be further from the truth. 99.9% of our bike fits are done with amateur riders. Anyone who values their riding and rides their bike regularly can benefit from a fit. You make around 10,000 pedal strokes an hour. Would you rather repeat 10,000 good pedal strokes, or 10,000 poor ones? If you are going to invest many, many hours into riding your bike, why hold yourself back with a poor position?


“I’ve had bad experiences with bike fitting in the past”

We are different. Our whole fitting ethos centres around providing as much knowledge as we can to our riders, so you can truly understand why certain choices will work for you and others won’t. The more you know, the better decisions you can make, for you! There is no ‘secret sauce’ we are hiding, just honest, education and guidance. Our track record backs this up!


“Bike fitting is expensive”

How much does your bike cost? How much do your wheels cost? How much does your cycling wardrobe cost? Yes, cycling can be expensive, but a bike fit is the best value investment you can make for your long term health and riding. It will last you years, it will enable you to travel thousands of kilometres, it will help you become stronger, fitter and stave off injuries. And you can transfer it from bike to bike. Bike fitting is not sexy and it is not easy. It requires time, hard work and commitment. But the rewards are ten-fold. Remember, nothing really worth doing is easy!


“I’ve been riding for years without a bike fit, why do I need one now?”

Cycling is a low impact, repetitive sport, conducted upon the most efficient form of transport known to man. This means you can get away with repeating poor movement patterns for years and your body will easily find a way to absorb that additional poor movement stress. Some bodies are better at dealing with that additional stress than others. But the more stress you load onto your body, at some point it is going to catch up with you. Trust me, I’ve been there myself and part of the reason why I became a bike fitter. The other constant that you should be aware of is that our bodies change. You body is not the same as it was 5 years ago! Bike positions should change to match your body, your mobility, your abilities and your current riding goals. If you need help figuring this out, seek advice from an expert, come get a bike fit.


“How can you be sure this will work for me?”

We know that our processes and methods work because it has been proven across 1000s of cyclists. However it does take two to tango when it comes to bike fit. Good results can only be achieved if both fitter and rider are willing to work at a problem and explore all potential solutions together. This is why we describe our fit process as a partnership. Bike fitting is not a simple magic bullet or a prescription. But if you’re willing to be open minded, come with a learning mindset, work hard and take control of your fit, great things can happen! But if you’re having doubts or still have any questions on your mind, you need to answer these before you commit to a fit. Email us anytime: info@foundation.fit or call Wei on +44(0)7891 063 994


Reasons To Get A Fit Before You Buy


Find YOUR fit – The chance that every single component (bars, stem, cranks, saddle etc.) on a stock bike will be just right for you is less than 2%. Every bike should be tailored to the individual. You are not an average.


Save yourself TIME – Time trying to figure out what is best for you through trial and error. Time swapping out components on a new bike that don’t fit.


Save yourself MONEY – If you buy the wrong bike, that is a tonne of cash down the drain, and then you still have to figure out what is the right size!


Avoid FRUSTRATION – We want you to enjoy the ride. Don’t stumble at the first hurdle. Find a bike that fits, that is comfortable and you will enjoy your ride so much more.


Prevent INJURY – A bike fit is the surest and fastest way to ensure that your new bike will be working with your body and not setting you up for a future injury.


Get the MOST from your bike & body – Why hold yourself back? The bike is only 50% of the equation. The engine is you! The magic ride happens when both body and bike are working together.


A fit keeps on GIVING – Once you have your fit measurements, you can keep using them to set up new bikes or test new positions. You now have the knowledge, you are now in control of your fit.

Buy smart GET a fit first

What ever level of rider you are, our team will tailor your position and find the dream ride you’ve been looking for.

I was introduced to Foundation Fit when I was looking to buy a gravel bike. They have helped get the frame and component sizes right that avoids all the faff and expense later swapping out bars and stems but best bit was changing to shorter cranks. This has been a total revolution.

They have been super patient and accommodating. They have a wealth of experience (that pointed me in the right direction to get a seat post unstuck) and a dazzling array of saddle types to try out at their new base at the Olympic Velodrome, Nice!

Amazing fully personalised experience, can't recommend more. Before you try, you'll never believe that moving the saddle and handlebar down by 1-2cm and swapping shoe insoles could improve your average speed by ~30%.

Defilingly the best money on my bike spent. Matt was great and spent a lot of time explaining and making sure I was happy. You get a great report and video's and photos for future use too. Highly recommended

I've been in the cycling industry for many decades, but have only now "allowed" myself to start a new (bike) project build from the right end—starting with fitting-before-buying. Wei and Matt are encyclopedias of cycling, but more importantly gurus of bodies extending into bikes. Also, their saddle library and a variety of options one can have a go on, is eye watering... The number of saddles I tested, which I had never before been able to do so, is exciting... I'm looking forward to next steps in the process.

Excellent! Had a basic fit yesterday, and every aspect so far has been superb: from the website and booking system, pre-fit questionnaire and the fit itself of course. I'm now in the real world "testing" phase of the fit, so I might be still figuring stuff out as I get the miles in, but I left the studio feeling a lot more confident in my position and the changes we made.The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly, Matt is thorough, great at communicating and really good at explaining every step in detail and asking the right questions to get you thinking and to get the feedback he needs from you. Really helpful to have high quality video to see the differences in real time as well.Nice to have the option to test a saddle by essentially purchasing it as a deposit, so you can bring it back and swap for something else if it turns out not working out for you. Also good to find out that returning for a fit, even if on a different bike is discounted — as I was already thinking of coming back with my road bike before we were even done.100% recommended. If you're on the fence: get off it and book in at Foundation, you won't regret it.

Matt is extremely thorough and patiently goes through each aspect of the riding position providing plenty of tips on how to improve performance. The format balances science with sensibility - each change is checked to see what works. Its not cheap but understandably as there's a lot of time and tech involved, and the report sent following the fit is so useful, with CAD drawings showing measurements that can used to reset, and transposed to other bikes, recommendations (I have wide feet and struggle to find the right shoes) the ability to try out different saddles from 100's (golddust... if you've been riding on a saddle that doesn't suit your pelvis get this checked out to prevent future saddle soreness ) and tips for improving muscle strength and flexibility. Should have done this years ago. Highly recommend.

An amazing experience! Some context….I went with my existing aero bike with 175mm cranks, 120mm stem and 40cm bar width. I’ve also got no residual injuries or had any significant concerns. I’m also planning to build a Climbing bike so I wanted some advice with that too…..3.5 hours later I left with a tonne of great info and small changes that have made a significant difference.1. Improved cleat position, now on 2% float cleats, more for my preferred riding goals2. Adjusted saddle position, now my feet stay parallel through the pedal stroke and I’m closer to the hoods, improved posture and arm position.3. 165mm crack lengths feel amazing!4. 42cm bars were my preference for my new bike with 110mm stem5. Some focus on strength and conditioning exercises based on my body typeLastly the simple equation is this….have these changes made much difference to the feel of riding, honestly, it’s transformed it to the extent that I’m now not considering a new bike. I feel I’m putting out more power for less effort.It’s the best investment you can make if you’re paying £2-3K or above for a bike IMHO

Overall brilliant experience at Foundation Fit. Having had saddle issues for a number of months, being able to try out several saddles was extremely useful to find a comfortable one, an option that I have struggled to find with other fitters. To top it off, Wei and Matt are very welcoming and friendly, and very clear in the feedback throughout the session. Highly recommend a visit for any level of Cyclist.

Unqualified five stars. Their service cannot be improved! Everything you read is true: this is money absolutely well spent, and this is for you--whether you're an expert rider or a novice. I'm a novice, and I can't wait to go back. I learned so much (so much), came away with a total bike fit shift, and have some clear next steps to improve my riding experience (comfort) and quality (stability and speed). I couldn't be more delighted. You will learn more about yourself, your body, your bike, and your riding experience than you can imagine. I promise.

Just did my second fit with Foundation. The first was great and it was time to do another to build on what was already a strong platform. This time with Mat. He totally understood my explanation of where I thought there might be room for adjustment 5 years on and was able to explain the issues and solve them quickly. There and then. Went riding today and felt great, like my body could do more things. Hardly ever ride in the drops and today it was easy and I felt strong. All the body parts doing what they're meant to. A few adjustments made a big difference. And these were translated to my Tri bike. I also really enjoyed it. Great to have the chance to chat with people who know how important it is to feel right in the body, how it changes the experience and are as into it as me. Thanks 🙂👍👍👍

I really wish I'd done this two years earlier. From a couple of rides already my patellar tendonitis is not getting aggravated, my upper hamstring tightness is gone, no numbness you know where, and I'm in a more comfortable position in general.I went with the injury prevention fit, where Wei spent the entire 4 hours assessing what was causing my various niggles and tweaking my bike fit, patiently running thorough loads of different options & positions to see what works best.I came out with an adjusted saddle height, adjusted saddle angle, a better saddle with pressure relief, a new & longer stem, adjusted cleats and a break levers that are easier to reach.An added bonus was what I learned from this all, and Wei talking me through everything we were doing and why.

I got my first ever bike fit with Wei and Matt a few months ago and have found such a massive improvement in comfort levels when riding my bike on my everyday commute as well as over longer distances. They are both exceptionally knowledgable and explained each step of the adjustment process in a clear, logical manner. They are also very lovely people! I'm incredibly grateful for their help and would highly recommend getting your bike fit done with Foundation Bike Fit!

It's always a pleasure to work with Wei. He makes you feel at ease in order to discover what is holding you back. There's no expectation that you're a top level athlete, but will look at what you're doing and what could make you better.Alongside this is a great way of helping you realise your goals. There's a reason people go back to him.

The guys at Foundation bike fit were to put it simply… Amazing! I am an older rider, with some ailments and I’m working to get myself back in shape for some long distance rides n 2024. From the beginning Mat made me feel right at home, listened to what I wanted to do, what was hurting etc and debunked some myths along the way. I left there with my bike adjusted, power increased ALOT, and better understanding of how certain tweaks to the bike can help or hurt my style of riding. The amount of data they give you is amazing and I would say everything they say on their website is 100% accurate. I am no Pro cyclist but boy did they made me feel like one. They are not their to up sell you things, which is what I appreciated the most, they simply want to get you comfortable on your bike to meet your goals. A+ service!

I went to see the team at Foundation Bike Fit as I’m having a Spoon Custom bike made and Wei was recommended as the best person to dial me in for a custom geometry bike.Firstly, the setting is so cool, I was a bit early so went to sit up in the velodrome and watch people whizz round. The studio itself is in the guts of the building, where all the athletes would’ve walked which really nice.I did my bike with Matt, who was really affable and welcoming. We had a really good chat about bikes and then onto bits about me before the fit itself.I had the new bike fit, and began with the bike fit details of my existing bike as a starting point before dialling myself into the new bike. It was great to feel listened to and to have my current situation taken into consideration.The fit was really detailed, trying a number of positions which really highlighted difference a small change could make.I can’t wait for the bike to come and then to go back to make sure I’m set up correctly!

I’d never had a bike fit before, but as part of buying a bike I had a session at Foundation - had a two hour session with Wei in the Velopark (worth a visit in itself). He was helpful, informative, enthusiastic and positive, all of which helped me feel confident and look forward to the next few years cycling. Excellent!

Definitely recommend if you are racing, planning any long distance rides or are in any sort of pain on the bike. My session was with Mat , very friendly and knowledgeable person. I mainly came to get my bike set up as efficient as possible for Ironman. I also let Mat know the pain I was experiencing in my back and neck. Mat gave me a detailed explanation as to why I was in pain. He also gave me a lot of insight into triathlon racing. After a lot of bike tweaking we got the bike set up right and pedalling just felt so much easier. the next ride I did was pain free which is what I am most happy with

A bike fit at Foundation Bike Fit is a must for any person keen to improve significantly his/her riding experience and more generally take cycling to next level. I had a really enjoyable time with Matt for a Fit Before you Buy session, during which Matt will not only explain essentials of bike mechanics/racing but also how your body type/position impacts your overall performance on a bike and how minor mechanical adjustments can yield and unlock higher performance and comfort on the bike. Matt is super knowledgeable and really a bike genius. A MUST do in anticipation of any bike purchase or for any bike enthusiasts. The team also follows up with you after the session and gives you detailed feedback on the session and what are your needs. I could not be happier with their services.

I’m a novice in this space and Mat made it so easy for me to understand and appreciate all the nuances of proper cycling and now what type of bike to buy. I highly recommend booking in a bike fit whether you’re a novice or a pro!

Absolutely fantastic team, combining science and individual feedback to get to your right riding position. They also helped me do a cost benefit analysis of going all out today on a new shiny toy vs getting best bang for buck taking onto account my 2-3 year goals. I learned a few things too. The atmosphere is super relaxed yet professional and focused on the best outcome for the individual. The versatility in recommendation is great as they can give you feedback on triathlon, MTB, road at all levels. I am super pleased and for me it’s the best investment I have made on the path to acquiring my first outdoor road bike. They are brand agnostic and they truly care only about improving rider confidence, comfort and performance. Cannot recommend highly enough!

I would high recommend the team and Foundation bike fit. Wei and his team went over and above to ensure I ordered the correct bike frame for me. They even spoke to the retailer on the changes required. Honestly, couldn't have asked for any more from them. Great team, super knowledgeable and friendly. Best in the Business.

I was expecting some useful information, but the experience surpassed my expectations and I not only got the measurements for the right bike fits, I also have much more of an understanding of how it all works.It's a very interactive experience and I asked many questions and they were all answered thoroughly. I was hesitant about getting a bike fit because of the price, but definitely did not regret it as I now also have the right info to get the ideal bike for me, now and in future dates. I'm now saving up for my first proper mountain bike, the orange clockwork evo 29er, and I'm now confident about the fit and the right posture when riding thanks to foundation bike fit.I'd highly recommend going with them as they are very friendly and of course very helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks for all the help help and support foundation bike fit.

I spent an amazing afternoon with Wei at FOUNDATION bike fit - discovering a great deal about my anatomy, physical qualities and irregularities - and their inter-relationship with my bike. Subtle adjustments were made, always with explanations as to why and only retained if they resulted in beneficial sensations on the treadmill bike. I enjoyed an immediately more comfortable ride home and the follow-up report covered everything from ideal bike geometries, optional components to fit to my present bike and links to exercises to help address my own 'human' machine.I would also add two further points: 1. Wei is a really great communicator and listener 2. The toasted vegan banana bread at the cafe two doors east from Cloud 9 (Where FOUNDATION is based) makes the visit doubly worthwhile. Yum.

I went in for a new bike fit and can't recommend Wei enough. He's incredibly passionate about what he does, professional and fun at the same time too. As we stepped through the process, Wei explained along the way why he was doing what he was doing. You'll come away with a much more comfortable (and pain free!!) position on the bike & an overall much better understanding of what to look for in a new bike. 100% recommend it, and worth every penny! Thanks again Wei, you rock.

If you're looking to improve your cycling experience, Foundation Fit in London is the place to be. Wei and Matt are exceptional – genuinely sincere and incredibly knowledgeable. I've visited twice already, and each time has been a fantastic experience. After the fitting process is complete, you have the opportunity to try out the bike at the Velopark, and I simply couldn't stop riding. The bike felt perfect. I couldn't stop smiling!

I had a fit earlier in the year with Mat and Wei. Having had fits before, I kind of knew what to expect, though both these guys added even more on top of what I'd seen before. The attention to detail is spot on, the knowledge is top tier and the end result was a bike fit on my TT ride that felt perfect.

For months I’ve been battling an on going knee injury once I hit about 80k on a bike, no amount of stretching, conditional work or yoga would seem to shift this issue… and then Mat re-position my cleats in the right spot for my body! Overnight success does happen, the next day I put a 114k ride down with a sprint finish with power I didn’t know I had! If you’re experiencing any issues or pains on the bike, I can almost guarantee foundation bike fit will be able to make a remarkable difference to your power; strength and experience on a bike! Plus, free bananas and ginger nut biscuits!

Mat went above and beyond during the bike fit to not only get me more comfortable on my bike, but to explain what and why changes were being made. I have had bike fits in the past... but foundation bike fit is worlds apart both in the understanding on the day and the information relayed in your fit report..Great people and a great service.. thanks again..

Fantastic! no other words needed.The session started with me explaining the problems I was facing. Than Matt took some videos of me riding and show me to explain what I could have improved. Then we tested different settings (lower saddle, shorter handlebar, ecc.) till we found the optimal position. 100% worth the investment

I had a fit with Mat at Foundation Fit ahead of buying my first time trial bike. I was hugely impressed by how tailored the session was to my goals and how Mat was able to analyse the idiosyncrasies of my movements patterns in order to find my optimum position on the bike. The equipment Foundation Fit uses means that every element of your riding position can be adjusted during the fit. What is most impressive though is the depth of Mat’s knowledge and experience.Having seen the nuance that goes into finding the best riding position and how individual it is, I can’t imagine spending money on a bike without having a fit like this.I would strongly advise anyone planning to purchase a bike or experiencing discomfort while cycling to book a session with Foundation Fit. It is worth every penny.

I had a bike fit with Mat in Aug 2023 for a newly purchased bike. Mat was very professional from start to finish; I learnt an awful lot and had fun along the way.Mat helped me understand some historic IT band issues, with recommondations on stretches and how the bike fit can help out with this specific issue. Also from the initial assessment, he was able to pin point other areas that weren't 'quite right'; not noticeable to me riding the bike but after some time on the saddle would (and has in the past) resulted in some discomfort. The before and after videos made this extremely obvious!A new stem length was recommended, with the saddle height and position altered to my specific needs. The bike feels considerably better after multiple long rides; difference for me has been very noticeable (positively of course). I had followed up with numerous questions via email post-fit and Mat responded with extremely detailed answers; clearly put a lot of thought into it and more than happy to share his knowledge - this was very much appreciated.Great experience, would 100% return to them, and recommend.

On the recommendation of Brixton cycling club members i booked a bike fit with Matt. I had not quite expected how thorough and illuminating the 4 hours would be. Or just how many saddle choices would be offered. I definetly now know my own limitations physiologically, what to do to improve flexibility and the dreaded posterior chain (!). Matt has continued to engage with me over saddle and seat post lay back options to accomodate me and the bikes frame. Very highly recommended.

Went to Foundation for a performance fit primarily to resolve issues I have with pain and discomfort, but also to see if I can get more aero and hold that position sustainably.I race track pretty much exclusively (Track League and Vets League at HHV and Full Gas Track League at LVV) so there's not much shifting of position or resting or changing gear to alleviate any of the litany of niggles that I've accumulated over the years (old calf injury, herniated disc, various arthritic joints, persistent cramp in feet, perineal pressure, etc). I'd attempted to 'correct' some of this myself and had a previous fit elsewhere too, but the discomforts remained.Wei and Matt went through a host of off-bike assessments and set up changes and arrived at a new position, new saddle and differently supported left foot which seems to have made quite a large difference for me (in terms of cramp and perineal pressure alleviation) so in a race scenario I am more comfortable and able to stay in an aggressive position putting out power rather than wriggling about trying to stop stuff hurting.I am now hunting around for the rather longer stem and shorter cranks we found worked to enable me to fully dial in the revised position but I'm excited to be able to race more comfortably even before these are sourced, having landed on two podiums over the weekend with the new set-up.I'd be happy to recommend Foundation to riders looking to ride more comfortably - even vets with pre-existing bodily stuff going on. Now I just need to find someone who makes affordable 155mm cranks and 180mm stems.Thanks guys!

I was made to feel at home from the moment I met Matthew. The basic bike fit was extremely thorough and I was asked all sorts of questions so Matthew could fully understand me and my body.I would recommend Foundation to anyone that wants to feel comfortable on their bike.

Amazing. I have been riding road bikes as fast as I can for over a decade. Despite that, the session with Mat was a revelation. If you are looking for "free watts" *and* a more comfortable ride, whatever kind of machine you ride, you will find both here. Not only that you will discover some fascinating insights about how you currently ride and how you could improve from people who are, I believe, world class experts in their field and extremely pleasant to work with to boot. In case you are wondering, I have not been paid or otherwise incentivised to write this. Its my honest opinion. I am just kicking myself I did not do this a few years ago. Thanks so much to Mat the team at Foundation Fit.

Really positive experience with Matt and Wei and would recommend a visit to these guys!I was originally on the fence before going due to the expense but those concerns quickly faded. I had purchased a new bike that was generally a good fit for me and the subtle changes and improvements both Wei and Matt managed to achieve was exceptional.I later purchased a smaller crank as per their suggestions and with minor tweaks on my free second follow up with them my riding experience has been revolutionised. Certainly no regrets!Additionally, what I loved about visiting Matt and Wei was their input and guidance focused on the body in parallel with the bike. Its human nature to blame your tools but they clearly articulated and demonstrated what I should be doing and improving as part of my general overall fitness and wellbeing that supports a better riding experience. Subtle but effective.Lastly, as with any bike fit experience there is the dreaded fear of having to purchase new components. I never felt pressured into buying anything but they actually helped me achieve the absolute maximum out of my current bike. What helped was experiencing the ideal setup on the test rig vs my bike with tweaks. Matt and Wei providing guidance on how to take it forward which was later fully tweaked as part of my second free follow up. I am now short crank convert!!All in all, highly recommended, go see these guys, they know their stuff and equally really lovely. Its also in the vellodrome, what more do you need 🙂

I came to Foundation as I had a bike fit before and it didn't really work for me.The first 4 hour session with Matt went through everything including my sports history, injuries and goals I want to achieve on the bike. Make not mistake: That session was tough and I was put through my paces which I thought was great!We went through lots of different set ups and realised I needed shorter cranks which I had duly installed afterwards.The location is great at the iconic Olympic Velodrome and you can test out your bike fit straight away on the outdoor cycling track. Perfect!I recently went back for my follow up appointment and we made some more tweaks to the bike set up and now I've never felt more comfortable on my road bike.Highly recommended!

Had my first Bike Fit with Foundation a few weeks ago. I do mainly endurance road riding and I was skeptical as to whether a bike fit was necessary after having watched many YouTube videos on the subject. I can definitely say that I had a very noticeable increase in comfort on the bike after the fit when I tried it out for a few laps on the track outside (included in the bike fit). Very useful to see videos of before and after adjustments on the bike and to discuss everything. Good experience all round and includes a follow up session within 3months 👍🏻👍🏻

Honestly this is so much more than I expected or could have imagined. I had my bike fit with Mat after meeting Wei at the velo on they’re open day, I had put this off for some time as I felt too beginner and almost embarrassed by my lack of knowledge however I was made to feel at complete ease, given an amazing amount information which mat made simple for me to understand and over all left feeling so much more confident as well as excited to now continue my biking journey. Mat has a lot of passion and patience which I am truly greatful for. I really can’t recommend this company enough, they are absolutely amazing!

I've had bike fittings before but this is really what I was looking for: they measure everything, and then systematically explore minor adjustments to what feels right in order to zero in on what is optimal.Mat led my session and was crystal clear in assessing my position on the bike (and off it) and explaining my options.I'm not a Tour pro or even a competitive amateur, just someone who wants to extract maximum comfort and efficiency from his bike when riding.I came away knowing there's a set of measurements, crank lengths, seat types and bikes that will work well for me.Now all I have to do is choose my new machine! I feel a lot better doing it this way than buying something I like the look of then hoping it fits. Tried that.Well done Mat and the Foundation team for providing such excellent and valuable support.

Super friendly and professional job by Wei and Matt getting me prepared for my first ultra distance race which I successfully completed with thanks to them. Originally have had several fit issues related to hips, shoulders and other issues which have been either completely solved or alleviated with a new bike fit. Super knowledgeable and willing to help out in as many ways possible for you to meet your goals!

The Performance bike fit with Wei was a fantastic experience. I learnt a lot about how my physiological state (flexibility) is affecting my bike position. Wei took a very careful assessment of both my on the bike and off bike movement before making helpful recommendations on both changes to the bike and off bike flexibility exercises.Overall an excellent and detailed bike fitting, I really see the difference after the fit and keen to see how it plays out in the longer term!And bonus point: you get to test out any changes on the road circuit, not just on a stationary trainer!

If you are half serious about cycling then a bike fitting is arguably as important as your bike. Foundation Bike Fit are absolute masters at it. Spending a few hours with Wei and Matt at the stunning Olympic velopark is a hugely enjoyable experience as they’ll make dozens and dozens of adjustments and measurements whilst sharing many anecdotes and insights about cycling and triathlon. Most importantly it will also leave you considerably more comfortable on your bike - but also much faster. You’ll never regret the cost once you’ve experienced it. They are that good.

I've had the pleasure of having an ongoing bike fitting service from Wei and Mat at Foundation Fit since November 2022.My first visit was to determine my ideal geometry for a custom built bike geared towards ultra distance riding. Additionally, my existing second hand and ill-fitting bike was tuned as close as possible to my body to eliminate existing aches such as left knee pain, and saddle sores. Foundation Fit use top of the range equipment and both Mat and Wei explain their process in a very clear and informative way. You are made to feel very comfortable and part of the process.As mentioned, I had saddle sore issues and I was given a saddle to trial for a couple weeks from their extensive saddle library. Initially, Wei picked out two he thought would work well with my body. I tested these out on the trainer and opted to try one of these - It was amazing to have found a saddle just like that. After the trial, Wei fitted a brand new one on my bike and my custom build also has the same saddle.I was free to ask Wei any questions over email and every reply was comprehensive and helpful. Wei ultimately helped me with my cleat position that solved my knee issue and answered any worries I had about potentially fitting aerobars.My second fit was for the custom bike, which I had with Mat. Equally amazing, Mat helped me shift my weight to the back of the bike so I could relieve pressure off of my hands and upper body.A bike fit report is generated for me where I can reference all the measurements and notes made during a fitting. This also includes numerous photos and videos that show my riding position, foot stability, and left right balance.Overall, I would highly recommend Foundation Fit for their professional and thorough service. Mat and Wei are exceptionally friendly and personable and give you honest advice and feedback.

Wei and Matt are the Jedi's of bike fitting! I came in for an initial fit, they made subtle improvements in my position that increased my power output with same or increased comfort on long rides. I then came back for advice when shopping for a new bike which was very helpful. They are super knowledgeable, thorough, responsive, and their studio in the Velodrome has everything needed. Highly recommended!

Had two bike fits with Matt who was very attentive and knowledgeable.Besides improving the overall fit to be more comfortable some micro cleat adjustments had me putting down more power on the ride home.Nice win win.Highly recommend.

I got recommended by my cycling coach, to do my FIRST bike fit. I would highly recommend them!They are very good, they analysis everything and at the end, they send you a bike report of your fit, which had everything written down and had their recommendations.I found out the cycling shoes ( my old ones) were too small for me, as they measured my food length and width. At the end recommended me what shoe brands would suit me and my new pair are AMAZING.The follow up appointment was very good, as they made some adjustments which helped my riding posture and made me more comfortable when riding my bike.Thanks to them, I feel more connected with my bike when I am riding outdoors and on Zwift.Definitely worth every penny spent.My favourite part was that the bike rig had my exact measurements and after trying and trying loads of different saddles, I found the one for me!

My third bike fit, after changing bikes. I was unfit and felt I needed to change my position, but after careful adjustments, Wei only moved things a bit. The following weekend went for a 95km ride and wow the difference was amazing! Again thank you Wei! Amazing job!

My wife bought me a bike fit before spending a load of money on a new bike and it was brilliant.Matt is really friendly, knowledgeable and wasn't at all worried that I am not the world's greatest time triallist nor the most flexible person. The fit was incredibly comprehensive and he explains every element, so you aren't left confused at the what is going on. You leave with a world of photos, videos, exercises to do to improve your flexibility, things to watch out for and a few bikes which would fit my geometry needs.Would definitely recommend this for anyone looking at their first big bike purchase

This was my first bike fitting. Mat and Wei are friendly, super informative and gave me some great recommendations. The bike fitting process was comfortable. Had my first ride over the weekend and felt comfortable and stronger on my bike. I like it that there is a follow up session included which can help if I need something small adjusted. Overall, really happy with the service and would recommend them.

The best bike fit I've ever had - for a custom bike build. From start to finish Wei, and later Wei and his team, were incredibly kind, friendly, supportive and helpful. Best of all, Wei is incredibly knowledgeable and it is clear he really wants the best for his customers. He is happy to share this knowledge, which he does in an accessible way, and there were never any points when I felt patronised or like I had asked a silly question. Wei made me feel comfortable and put me at ease and I felt a real part of the bike fit - it felt like we were working together to figure things out and he always listened to the feedback I gave with any positions we tried. He made suggestions and was always keen to hear how I felt about positioning etc. I felt like I was in safe hands during both my first fit and refit to check everything over, and Wei went above and beyond for me try and figure out what was causing specific issues on my bike. He was also always available outside of the bike fit appointments for questions I had. Overall, I would 100% recommend using Foundation for a bike fit and I really appreciate all of his help and support in creating an amazing, comfortable ride. Thanks so much Wei and team!

I found foundation bike fit by random online searching but encouraged to book a session by word of mouth- a really fast amateur racer who has been benefitted from Wei’s expertise for over 6 years strongly recommended him in the group chat.Had a full performance fit session on my Triathlon bike with Wei and Matt. In addition to numbers and graphs, Wei focused more on how I actually felt; instead of discrete positions, Wei investigated the kinematics and took care to improve my stability and pedaling fluency. There always exists factors that aren’t trivially measurable, in which case more humane approaches shine as expertise.I have been out riding for several times after the session to really let the new pose sink in. I actually had doubts on the saddle height during the session (it felt too low), but the new setting turned out to be a big performance boost: better force exertion and hence power transfer over a larger section of each revolution, higher stability at high cadence, and for the first time I actually feel my core is engaged in each pedal stroke- much more powerful, feels amazing. Also, the higher, more upward tilted, and more widely spaced areo bar gives me a bigger room to breath while reliving my neck and shoulder pain. I almost feel like sleeping in the aero position, no kidding.Oh and Wei wrote me a detailed report that includes all the measurements, ends and goals of each adjustment, off-bike work details and stuff, with all photos and videos attached.
Perfect fitting experience.. Thank you so much Wei !!Cycling for 5 hours without any pain (except leg muscles 🙂 or num feeling is so exciting. I wish I met Wei before.Also thank you for all the valuable guidance and information while choosing a new bike.

I cannot recommend Wei enough. I've had two bike fits with him so far and on both occasions, I've come out of it with a positive feeling.Wei is extremely knowledgeable, understanding and just an overall great person who is ready to talk to you about anything and everything bike fit related.He took into account all of my concerns, issues, riding goals and adapted my fit, while explaining the changes in detail each time to make sure I understood them. I have a much better understanding of what sort of bike I need, the setup I'll be most comfortable in and the equipment surrounding it.The detailed report at the end of the fit really makes it easy to understand every aspect of the change and contains all the measurements that I can use to setup my bike.All in all, Wei is one of the best in the business, and I'd recommend him highly.
