Aidan Shortt

Aidan has been a cyclist for over 20 years, and has been considered by some as a child prodigy, taking on mountain trails from the age of 8. Aidan has grown up in a household and family that has had cycling at its’ heart for generations. From working in Pedals Bike Shop from a very young age, Aidan learned about building bikes from a young age, as well as cycling them. Bike Repair and Bike Building has been a passion for Aidan throughout his life, and he is now transferring that knowledge and skill to bike fitting by becoming one of the lead bike fitters at Bike Fit Studio. Aidan has focused on MTB as his main cycling category, and this allows him to work with some of the top MTB cyclists today, and help them achieve the optimal bike fit for XC and Downhill. As an active athlete preparing for Triathlon, Aidan passes on great knowledge both on bike fitting, as well as training – so he is one of the most sought after bike fitters in Ireland.
