Bike fitting
« on: February 13, 2013, 04:20:34 PM »
Have any of you riders who put in longer miles invested in a professional bike fitting? I don't mean the basic 10-minute fit performed at many stores. I mean the two to three hour fitting down by someone trained in the process. If so, did it help and would you recommend the person who did it? Got contact info for that person?

recommend one - yes
did it help - yes
recommend a fitter - yes
contact - Eddie O'Dea @ http://www.55nine.com/

He's in Georgia, but comes to FL to do fittings usually once or twice a year. You get more than just the fit with Eddie.

If I was gonna do a fitting, this would be my first choice as well.

I had Roy, who used to work at AJ's do my fit on the GURU system at St. Pete Cyclery. I'm not sure where he's at now.
