**Please note that our bike fitting service is available once again**
Get the most out of your bike with a professional bike fitting service. Though we might be a little biased, we reckon Daren is the best bike fitter in East Yorkshire. He has extensive cycling experience, including racing, time trialling and triathlon, and has great knowledge of the physiology of the body. Putting this together makes for a great bike fitter.
Suitable for all riders, Daren and newly trained Lee and Steve, use the Precision Fit system to makes a thorough assessment of how you can achieve optimum comfort and performance. The fit is holistic, as it considers all aspects of the rider as well as the bike. A typical bike fit session is three hours long, so please contact us to book an appointment.
You are welcome to try out any bike before you buy (provided the bike is available and serviced, and subject to weather conditions).
We have three stunning Trek road bikes available for extended test rides, namely the Emonda SL 6, Domane SL 6 Pro and Domane SLR 6. Please note that we also have access to Trek's fleet of road and mountain demo bikes, so don't hesitate to ask there's something you would like to try.
We also have available for extended test rides the Orbea Optima Comfort 20 e-bike, if you fancy trying a high quality pedal assist electric bike with a superior Bosch system, and the Orbea Occam TR H50, a full suspension MTB to put a smile on your face when you're out on the trails.
Next to the frame itself, nothing has a bigger impact on your bike's performance than the wheels. Upgrading is a surefire way to save weight, go faster, and improve your bike's handling. See for yourself by trying the amazing Bontrager Aeolus 5 carbon road wheels.Project One

Daren Smith is the manager, and has been here at Ken Ellerker Cycles for 30 years. In that time he has a history in road racing, time-trialling and mountain bike racing. More recently he is to be found on the start line of triathlons (which he puts down to a mid life crisis!). Despite the advancing years, he is still able to knock out the odd sub 21 minute, 10 mile time trial and has managed a succession of top 30 finishes in triathlon events and completed an Ironman. Skills include NVQ Advanced level 3 mechanics and advanced wheel building. He is a RockShox Service Technician, and has worked, on the odd occasion, as a service mechanic for both amateur and professional races. Daren is our most experienced Precision Fit bike fitter. Should you require any assistance regarding club matters, sponsorship or just general cycling queries, get in touch with Daren through the contact page.
Lee Smith has a long history in cycling. He can be found touring Yorkshire's country lanes on his cross bike, or pounding up and down the hills on his mountain bike, both with a smile on his face and joy in his heart! Lee has a deep passion for all things cycling. Proof of this comes from his vast bicycle collection (pretty much all in matte black!). Bordering on "geek" status, he has an extensive knowledge whether it be mountain, road or cross bikes, and has worked in the industry for over fifteen years. He has also achieved NVQ/Cytec Level 2 mechanics. Recent training in Precision Fit has further extended Lee's knowledge and ability in all things biking.
Steve Kilgour benefits from his experience in engineering, and is our go-to guy for mechanical problem solving. He is a very keen cyclist, finding time away from his busy family life for cross and road riding. He is one of our expert mechanics, is qualified as a Shimano Service Technician and has reached PhD level at Trek University. Steve has also completed Precision Fit Level 1, so now also has expertise in bike fitting.
