Nate Loyal Coaching/Fitting

www.Nateloyal.com

Has anyone had any experience working with Nate? He was recommended to me as one of the best bike fitters in Socal.

Check out RBR

You should also talk to RBR forum. They seem to love him there. That's where I first heard about him. I've been meaning to go to him and get fitted. But the thought of hiking to Santa Monica...

Do a search

Do a search on nate loyal on rbr and his name comes up a lot. Yeah I know I'm so use to this format that I always have to think how to get around on that forum.

I have been fitted by Nate.

He is the most knowledgeable fitter I have ever met. Give him a call, he'll answer your questions, he is a super nice guy.

I highly recommend his services.

Had my bike fit with Nate Loyal on Friday and he was awesome. Fit feels great and he gave me a lot of informative information. I would recommend him to anyone. He's worked with Dr. Max Testa and Ernesto Colnago so he knows his stuff. Nate is the best fitter in SoCal!

I just talked to him and I think hes out motorcycle racing. He does bike fitting full time so he should be able to fit you in this week I would think. Let me know how it goes.

On his website, if you click on the coaching or fitting link, I am the guy behind Nate in the red and white kit. Tell him I want my royalties, he should know I'm joking.

Just to add my 2c: Nate is super-knowledgeable, has all the (technical and mental) tools to fit you on your bike, can give you training tips, and is a very nice guy.

Just came back

I just came back from my fitting with Nate Loyal. And what dramatic change! He even put shims in my cleats so my pedal stroke will be more level. He does a lot of measurements and really takes his time. He also gave me stroke and posture tips. Like the poster said before, he's a really nice guy.

I'd recommend him to anyone who wants to have more efficient pedal stroke and more power on your bike. It was the best cycling investment I've ever made.
