Custom Bike Fits Hunter Valley, Newcastle & Maitland
Tempest Bicycles offers custom bike fits in the Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Port Stephens and beyond. Whether you require a new bike or would like a bike fit for your current bike, we can help.
A proper bike fit ensures you have a position on the bike that ensures you can spend long days in the saddle and stay comfortable. A good fit can also help prevent injuries that result from an improper position & poor contact points. Since everyone has different body shapes, the correct position will vary from person to person, depending on factors like riding ability, cycling discipline and physical attributes like flexibility and injury history.
