ISM Adamo saddles now available from Totally Bikes

Totally Bikes is proud to announce a new addition to our specialist triathlon and road bike hire service. Customers can now opt to upgrade to an ISM Adamo saddle.

After feedback from our customers racing middle and long distance events we sought a way of improving the comfort of our fleet of bikes by bringing in the ISM Adamo Road saddle.

The basic principle of the saddle is to reduce pressure on the regional anatomy of the pelvis by removing a large portion of the saddle. This improves blood flow, reduces nerve compression and results in longer periods spent in the saddle with reassuringly impressive rider feedback.

Symptoms such as saddle sores, pins and needles in your feet and numbness (!) are all cases in which an ISM saddle offer significant improvements over standard saddles.The benefits of the ISM Adamo saddle apply to women almost as much as the men.

Totally Bikes team member and middle distance triathlon specialist Henry Howe commented, ‘I’ve been using Adamo saddles for some time and swear by them for the longer races where you’re on the tribars for an extended period. I think our customers will really appreciate the benefits especially when transitioning to the run phase.’

Saddles will be available as an upgrade on bike hire as well as being available to hire individually. Totally Bikes will also be retailing the Adamo saddle range. Please contact Totally Bikes for details at or by calling on 07917 231934.

Triathlon Success with Totally Bikes

  • Date: 11th July 2012

Totally Bikes’ customers continue to pile up successes in 2012. Early in the season Nick Escritt achieved a good placing at the European Triathlon Age Group Championships in Eilat, Israel. Nick has now used his Felt DA4 with the upgraded ENVE wheels from Totally Bikes to earn a place at the World Triathlon Age Group Championships at Auckland, New Zealand. Racing in a series of back to back events over the last month, Nick secured his place at the prestigious event Auckland Champs in October.

Nick’s great results come on top of Gregor Thurlow’s recent podium in age group at Ironman 70.3 UK, which also won him a place to the World 70.3 Championships in Las Vegas.

Other Totally Bikes customers’ good results include Dan Genazzini achieving 2nd in age group at the Maxifuel Marlow Half-Iron distance triathlon and multiple strong placings at various events including Blenheim, Windsor and a host of smaller events around the country.

At the Ironman UK 70.3 event on June 17th, Gregor Thurlow stormed the difficult course to record a superb third place in his age group with a time of 5:19:42. After the second place finisher turned down the offer, Gregor accepted the rolled down invitation to attend the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Las Vegas.

Commenting on Totally Bikes Gregor said, ‘Amazing service that you provide, the bike worked a dream. Consider me a very satisfied customer.’

Totally Bikes director Peter Richardson said, ‘I was watching the transition area as the first athletes returned after the bike leg. It wasn’t long after the pros had gone through that I spotted the Felt F4 being run into transition. I initially thought it was just someone with a bike similar to ours. However as I looked more closely I realized that it was one of ours. Gregor must have ridden out of his skin as he finished the bike course in the top 50 or so out of a field of over 2000!’

Peter went on, ‘When I tell people that we had a podium finisher they find it amazing that someone can get on a bike and instantly ride so strongly. Our service is based around offering the very best bikes, professionally set up to each individual rider. A lot of customers tell us that we take more trouble with the set-up than most bike shops. So it shouldn’t be surprising that our customers are achieving excellent results.’
