"Over the years of suffering from mechanical low back pain, I have had to give up sport after sport (squash, ultimate, running). Last summer I wrote off cycling after years of road and mountain biking. I was at the point where it would take me about four days to get rid of back spasms after a short ride or I would almost be crazy with pain from sciatica if trying to do a ride in the hills. I was certain that I had reached the point where the damage to my back was such that not much could be done in terms of cycling.

I spent 3 hours with Mary going over all of my woes and having her carefully analyze numerous aspects of my position on my bike. She re-positioned my seat and cleats and made recommendations regarding re-positioning my handlebars. I was able to have a local bike store find the stem that Mary very specifically recommended using a grid. By carefully plotting exactly where the centre of my handlebars should be positioned, she was able to ensure that I would get from the bike store EXACTLY what she recommended.

The end result? I am riding 100% pain free and am thrilled! I can hardly believe it. My back feels better now after getting off my bike than it did when I was 10 years younger and not suffering so chronically from back pain. I can't thank Mary enough.

I would strongly recommend Mary's assessment to anyone who is suffering from mechanical pain while they cycle. I would also recommend getting advice from Mary prior to purchasing a new bike to ensure proper fit right off the bat. The bike stores are just not equipped to fit people to their bike with the specificity that Mary can provide.
