Matt is based at WildSide Cycles in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, and is a Level II Retul-certified fitter. His recommended fit is a bespoke, totally client-centred process involving an initial in-depth consultation followed by observation and assessment on the bike using Retul’s 3D technology. Matt blends technology and evidence with intuition, but is also responsive to rider-feedback and always ensures that the fit doesn’t just measure right, but “feels right” too. The client’s personal information – injury and sporting history, cycling goals, preferences etc – are also influential in enabling him to make his judgements.
As well as the full Retul fit option, Matt also provides a basic level fit for the new cyclist or riders looking for more general advice on a bike purchase, for example. Advice on preparation, what to bring and what to wear for your bike fit is included on the bike fit section of the website. You can also book all of WildSide's bike fit services online or use the contact details below.
WildSide also offers a workshop service (repairs and services must be booked in advance) with tiered options for servicing. The workshop service list and prices can be viewed here. The shop stocks a range of high-quality bike brands including Specialized, Cannondale, Bianchi and Scott, as well as quality clothing from Assos and Castelli. Bikes over £1000 purchased at WildSide come with a free basic bike fit or half-price Retul fit as standard.
