Power at the pedal
Every cyclist dreams of going faster – occasional riders, weekend riders, everyday riders and professionals all chase this goal. Probikefit helps make these dreams a reality.
Not every rider is the same, there is no single bike setup for all. Probikefit uses each rider’s individual range of motion while considering any injury-induced limitations to adapt the bicycle to fit each rider.
Gary from Probikefit has been in the cycling industry for 19 years and has now been fitting people to their bicycle using the Retul fitting system for 10 years, achieving a Masters Retul certification in 2013.
All levels of cyclist, from professional to weekend warrior, can benefit from Gary’s experience and knowledge.

The Pedal Stroke for a cyclist mostly happens between the 12 o’clock and 5 o’clock position of the pedal stroke.
The power phase happens while the hip and knee extends, pressing downward on the pedal. This action starts with a combination of the gluteus and quadriceps muscles, but then is joined by the hamstrings and calf muscles a quarter ways through the revolution. This shows the need for equally strong hamstrings, hips, and quadriceps. These groups of muscle make up the largest volume of muscles used in a pedal revolution.
