What is Retul?
Retul provides technology, tools and training to guide bike fitters in assisting cyclists improve performance and comfort on their bikes. TBE Bike Fitters utilise Retul to develop a customer's position on their existing bike or for a new bike.
Following a Retul bike fit, TBE Bike Fitters are able to provide advice on the best options for frame model and size, including specific advice on stem length, handlebar type and width and crank length.
For customers who are experiencing pain or injury while cycling, a Retul bike fit can be used to eliminate position as a possible cause.
