Hi and welcome to Vankru Cycling.
Thanks for visiting.
Some background of my experience as a bike fitter:
Retul was founded in 2007.
I have been personally trained by Todd Carver (founder of Retul), Matt Steinmetz (Retul's head fitter and now of 51 Speedshop) and John Dennis (Retul's European Instructor) at the first ever European Retul University Course in 2010. This has established me as one of the longest qualified Retul fitters in Europe and the UK.
# Top 10 Bike Fitters in the UK by Cycling Weekly, in 2013.
More recently I have been on an aerodynamics course hosted by Alphamantis and Retul.
In early 2013, I became one of 4 Master Retul Bike Fitters in Europe and the first one in the UK.
In 2014 I completed the Cyclefit bike fitting course, which included detailed work on the foot, shoe, pedal interface.
In the autumn of 2014, I was asked to give a lecture on bike fitting by Southampton University.
In 2015 I completed the BikeFit course run by the bike fit legend, Paul Swift.
I have competed on the road and track for over twenty five years, including as a semi professional rider in Italy.
