Bike Fit

Bike Fit

Kennys for Bikes have been working with Bike since 2012. When Shimano took over, we were one of the first to be trained in England for Shimano Bike Fit and also to try out their new software. We can now offer you the opportunity to be professionally bike fitted in our shop.

The bike measurement programme at also includes a module that translates the ideal frame measurements  for a race/road bike and /or MTB into the best fitting measurement of a specific manufacturer. It covers 41 different bike  brands including Trek, Giant, Ridley etc. It  can also be used to adjust an existing  bike.

It calculates the ideal bicycle size and  position of the cyclist. With the help of a  computer drawing, each client can make  and educated choice of which new bike fits best. The standard measurement jig is used, to  precisely measure 8 body dimensions:

Foot length left
Foot length right
Inseam; Torso length
Arm length left
Arm length right
Shoulder width

The model of shoe (sole thickness), pedal (height) and type of saddle are also taken into account.

For more info on bike fit you can contact Paul Nolan at kenny for bikes Ph: 053 92 33255 Mobile: 087 2321137. All fittings are by appointment and take place at evening times only.

The bike fit will take approximately forthy five minutes to a hour. You will need to bring your bike,cycling shorts and cycling shoes along with you to the fit.

The cost of this service is eighty euro and includes a print out of all your measurements and advise you on what changes need to be done to your bike.



The correct relationship between the cyclist's contact points and the bicycle (saddle/handlebars/pedals) is essential for the optimal bio-mechanical position. This is mostly achieved with the standard and professional analyses. What is still lacking, is the adjustment of the shoe cleats, which form a vital part of model pedal/ shoe systems. This is perfected with the shoe cleat adjuster, which factors in the cyclist's gait, and results in several vital performance improvements, as well as removing the risk of inevitable damage when cleats are inexpertly adjusted. The knee stays in one line with the foot through which no rotation takes place, and the shoe cleat is positioned such that the ball of the foot rests at the centre line of the pedal axle which guarantee optimal power transfer.

In summary, the shoe cleat adjuster has the following functions:

1. To position the shoe cleat in such a way that the ball of the foot rests exactly above the centre line of the pedal axle, realising optimal power transmission.

2. Through the shoe cleats, the position of the foot on the pedal is adjusted in such a way that potential twisting of the lower leg is avoided.

3. Because the ball of the foot rests exactly above the pedal axle ankling is assisted with leads to a more fluid and natural pedalling action.

4. Burning feet syndrome will sharply diminish and in some cases disappear completely.

This procedure takes about fifteen minutes and the cost is ten euro.
