Road bike fitting????
« on: June 15, 2009, 11:21:07 AM »
I have been on the skinny tired bike for over a month now and think it's time to get a decent fitting done. Has anyone had a good experience locally with any of our LBS fitters?

Randy from Olivers or Mike from Flatland - both under $100 and both did a great job - Mike did MKs

AJ's has a couple of fast roadies who have gotten very good at bike fits.  But since you have a cannondale "make by Giant" bike.. (  ;D ;D   just kidding )... they will take you in.

Outspokin has a nice setup but I have never used them for fitting and don't know anyone that has.

Plus Aj's has just expanded their shop.Far as I can tell they have a road bike specific area now that is fairly large.

 Al at AJ's is pretty thorough.  He fitted my wife's roadbike, it took about an hour with all the adjusting he did and different things he tried to make it just perfect.  This was a free fitting with an entry level bike so I really appreciated how good of a job he did.
