Why You Shouldn't Set Your Road Bike Up Like A Pro Cyclist

Published on June 27th 2020


Professional cyclists have their bikes set up on the extreme end of the spectrum where speed and comfort meet, balancing aerodynamics and the ability to ride comfortably for hours on end. However, pros are also incredibly adapted to how their bike fits, and prioritise flexibility and recovery in order to achieve this. Slamming your stem and using larger gears might not actually make you faster in the long run, and could even cause you some pain. In this video Manon shares why you should avoid copying the pros bike setup.
