Anyone have/use a plumb bob for bike fitting? If so.... where did you find yours?
I've been visiting hardware stores for months trying to find a small
one - keep finding these large to humongous ones (8-24 oz). Checked online and it seems Stanley makes a 4oz one for $5~$7 - but I can't find a distributor.
I noticed there are some that are "custom" for bike fit - but they are ridiculously expensive and I don't think there is anything "custom" about a plumb bob
- (or is there?)
I think I've become obsessed with every nuance of bike fit... and now want to see where my patella is relative to the pedal spindle (k.o.p.s. fit test) on all
my bikes and see if I can tell a difference in injury aggravation with micro adjusting.
Any insight is greatly appreciated
