    Another interesting episode, well done guys.
    I have a few questions,
    As Niel said when doing such a long distance every day you want to make sure you are well positioned on the bike, but is there any particular place that you could recommend for Bike-fitting?
    Also another question is:
    What about Aero bars, you ask the bike fitter to fit those on as well or you do it by your self?
    Thanks guys,
    Looking forward to the next episode.

      Hi Matteo, I would look at bike fitters in your country and location. Follow them on instagram/social media and you will get a good idea of what they are like. Look for how they work with you as an individual rather than just measuring with lasers and applying a formula.

      For aerobars I got my bikefitter to fit them, took him 5 minutes to get them in the right position, would have taken me a couple of hours and still wouldn’t have got it right 🙂 It’s all about comfort.
